Racism In Pageantry - Racist Attitude Towards Miss Universe Canada Nova Stevens


The group chat was conducted via Zoom on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at 9:00 PM EST. My guests include Peter Sereno, Hector Joaquin Colon Gonzalez, Antonio Rivadeneira and Vagisha Mishra. The discussion revolves around the racist attacks by toxic fans against Miss Universe Canada 2020 Nova Stevens who is black. Nova posted a meme on her Instagram account with her headshot and a collage of texts written in Filipino expressing racist comments directed at her. We discuss how to deal with racist and toxic fans, the evolution of perception of beauty across the globe, and we attempt to answer Nova's question, "Is it really that difficult to spread love instead of hate?"
