Yityish Titi Aynaw (ייטאייש איינאו) is the 1st Black Miss Israel

I am jumping for joy. There is hope in the world of pageantry. Yityish is the first black Miss Israel in history, and a representation of an important demographic that Israel would rather forget. The 5ft 11 1/2 won after competing the pageant that was in a reality show format this year. Unfortunately that didn't stop the hateful comments that ensued. (They mad.) I wanted to mention that in some countries like Israel Miss World is more prestigious than Miss Universe. So she is THE QUEEN. Bow down. You can find out more about the pageant on X-Net. You can also view more pics here.








 BTW Last year Miss Canada also had it's first black miss.

  2. I must thank The Ideal Beauty for letting us know about her. She was everyone's favorite there. We were shocked but happier than Prince with a fresh perm.

    1. OMG! you know I have been looking for dark skinned Filipina beauty queens for the longest! Thank you. I wish she could have been one of the indigenous women. I love seeing these milestones in pageantry. I think black people need to stop acting like they are too good to support these ladies. In the grand scheme of things it does matter. I smell another post coming on. At first I couldn't find much on TiTi until I copied her name in Hebrew into my browser. That's how I found all this info. I love digging for stuff.

    2. No problem! I just happened to find out about her the very same day I saw your post and couldn't help but tell you about it. I know what you mean about wishing she was indigenous but hopefully when these women see that it's possible for a dark-skinned woman to win, perhaps we will see more taking the chance and participating as well!?

      Titi is really a very beautiful woman and I'm glad that she won despite all the shade I've seen thrown at her for her win. Keep up the good work, love this blog!

    4. TheVoiceOfReason could you publish this one instead?:) I think the other one have some typo spelling in it which I corrected with this one.
      Thanks!

      And another two are:

      I found these dark skinned beauties about the same time I learned of miss Yityish Titi Aynaw

      And the thing about it is that these are not majority Black countries, which show that many people are rejecting white supremacy standard
      by recognizing and promoting dark skinned beauty.

      And the first winner of the first Miss Black France:

  5. I really didn't think that Israel would ever elect a Black/POC to represent them but..wow!they fooled us.Nonetheless, congrats to Yityish on her reign. Its great to see a young woman representing not only Israel but Black women all over the world.Being in the military, she probably can kick some serious butt! Lol! Seriously, I happy for her.

    I'm also proud of Miss Canada as well.I just love it( sarcasm) when people called this beautiful woman ugly like every blue eyed ,blonde hair fair skinned person is always pretty.They'll say Sandra Bernhardt is beautiful while she and Miss Israel are ugly. The world is a trip.

    1. It is a trip. what is sadder is that we don't have any black women who are passionate enough about pageantry to start an online community.

  6. I don't know where you get the idea that Ethiopians are an "important demographic that Israel would rather forget". Ethiopians make tremendous contributions to Israeli society. I would be hard pressed to find any evidence that all of Israeli society or the Israeli government discriminates against them.

    Yes, there are individual haters, but that, unfortunately, exists anywhere on earth.

    1. I don't know about you but I don't kiss Israel's ass. I call it like it is. This is coming from an American black woman. I look out for myself first not the image or vanity of Zionist.

  7. Funny, I saw a profile pic and said, wow, she looks like a slightly darker Lynn Whitfield, but seeing her from the front, that isn't the case.
    Lovely. Haters gonna hate...

  10. Dear Ms Ankhesen Mié Love your blog. IF you are excited about Yityish Titi Aynaw winning the title of Miss Israel as the first black Ethiopian to do so, and if you've not yet posted about the first black female to have a seat in the Israeli Parliament, the Knesset, dahling you'll be over the moon about Pnina Tamano-Shata an Ethiopian immigrant who has achieved this position. For more details read here...http://youthinkwhat.com/now/pnina-tamano-shata-israels-first-black-female-ethiopian-representative-in-knesset/

  11. There is clear evidence of Israeli discrimination against Ethiopians...for example in the city where the first female Ethiopian MK, Member of the Knesset, lives, Pnina Tamano-Shata. In the city of Petah Tikva just a few miles from Tel Aviv some do not want the Ethiopian children to become educated in the schools. There is housing discrimination...see
    http://hananchehata.wordpress.com/tag/petah-tikva/

    When it comes to Ethiopian immigrants the government of Israel requires the women to regularly received injections of the birth control shot depo provera, in spite of their protestations...sounds like ethnic cleansing to me...ijs.

    Do not be deceived...racism is alive and thriving in Israel...the election of an Ethiopian politician to the Knesset or the selection of an Ethiopian as national beauty queen by no means is an indicator they are in the cum by ya mode or that they are having a Hine ma tov era...Hebrew for "living in peace and harmony" Psalm 133
