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.
