Fans have been holding their breath to see who takes home the crown for Miss America 2020 and most of them are wishing for another a woman of color to win the title. Ever since Miss World crown was taken home by Toni-Ann Singh from Jamaica and Miss Universe crown by Zozibini Tunzi from South Africa, many have placed their bets on another woman of color winning. 

Both Singh and Tunzi were vocal about how they want to make a difference using their respective platforms. Tunzi used her speech to let people know that the definition of beauty is not defined in terms of the color of the skin but in terms of who one is as a person. She highlighted the fact that while growing up she was told that she was not beautiful due to her skin color and added that she wanted to use the platform to let women know that their skin color did not define them. 

Singh also voiced similar thoughts stating that beauty should be redefined. Seeing two bold and beautiful women of color taking home the crown people have been wishing that the same happens for the Miss America pageant. People were quick to take to social media to express their thoughts on beautiful women of color taking on the stage. 

"Listen ya'll seeing these black girls in Miss America?? The girls are GORGEOUS," one wrote. Another added, "Watching the Miss America pageant and Black Women are just naturally 10 times prettier than all others." 

Some were praying that the crown is taken home by women of color as the comment read, " want Miss Alabama (first Black Miss University of Alabama) to win Miss America. If not her, then Miss Florida (who went to the University of Alabama and was on the dance team)." Another added, "I predict a black lady will win miss America.......again......"
