Nuestras Raices Delaware: Let Jakiyah Keep Her Crown!

Jakiyah McKoy won the Little Miss Hispanic Delaware pageant but the sponsoring organization, Nuestras Raices Delaware, has blocked her win after an outcry from people claiming that, because she is Black, she is “not the best representative of Latin beauty.” The title is now pending while the commitee “investigates” Jakiyah’s heritage. Meanwhile, none of the other competitors were subject to such an investigation.

This petition is to demand that Jakiyah McKoy keep her rightfully won crown, because her beauty represents us all.
