If you were to stage a beauty contest in a country where 96 percent of the population has white skin, would it surprise you if all of your contestants were Caucasian?
No, not if you’re a normal, rational human being who understands concepts like ‘the law of averages.’
But we live in a day and age when rationality is no longer as prevalent throughout Western society as it once was, say, the day after World War II, when the West beat back tyranny on both sides of the world and saved generations of people from miserable lives.
We also live in the age of social media, which has become little more than a sewer where unhinged, irrational people turn to unleash torrents of hate and venom and bile they would otherwise never have the gall or the guts to say in person.
Earlier this week some fool took to Twitter to complain that all of the female contestants in the “Miss Scotland” beauty pageant were white.
“Delighted to see such a diverse lineup for miss scotland this year,” some triggered person named Iain Robertson tweeted along with a picture of the contestants.

Needless to say — because it is Twitter — Robertson was savaged, though rightfully so this time.
Users posted pictures of contestants of the “Miss Botswana” contest, all of whom were black; same for “Miss Jamaica,” “Miss Ghana,” “Miss Zimbabwe,” “Miss Kenya,” and “Miss Nigeria” pageants as well.
Others pointed out that female contestants in Indian beauty pageants are Indian; Japanese in pageants held in Japan; ditto for China, Vietnam, Taiwan, and South Korea.’
