For all you of Japanese origin, you see how the Miss Universe pageant really treats people like you which are also from Asia, primarily in the Orient express sector?
The judges picked Miss Puerto Rico from Puerto Rico = a U.S territory.
Pleaseing a U.S. territory is more important than being your supposedly friends that President Bush jr. claims he is with you people.
This is worst than clam chowder.
Japan should stop co-operateing with U.S.A or you will soon be a puppet(territory) of theirs just like Puerto Rico & South Korea.
As a Japanese, I don't think miss universe is important.
I know some countries, especially in the middle and south america, this is a hot issue.
but i want Japan to compete, pursue excellence in different fields: sports, art, academics, etc.
The idea to choose only one miss universe from different cultural backgrounds are ridiculous.
Western figures are more preferred in the cntest and i am sad to see the Japanese girl make up her face to look like one of those. Few Japanese girl do such make up in Japan.
