Leila Lopes Miss Universe 2011: I am Proud to be African


Miss Universe 2011, Leila Lopes put the critics and her racists back in their box by declaring that she is proud to be African and that she loves her beautiful African features. She did not cop out by trying to claim fake Cuban ancestry as many pressured her to do, she stood firm and declared that she is 100% African and she loves it. Leila Lopes said;

"I feel very blessed and proud of myself... I like who I am and am proud to be African. I love the color of my skin, my features and my hair. The racists are the ones that should be concerned with what's going on in their minds...I'm 100 percent Angolan. The last name Lopes comes from the fact that Angola was colonized by the Portuguese."
