Black America Web Featured Video


Beauty pageants represent different things depending on who you ask, but ultimately it’s a platform for women to feel self confident about themselves while also using their universal appeal to spread a bit of glamour throughout the world. At the very least, it’s also another good competition for hometown bragging rights.

One of the main issues many have related to pageantry in the past is the lack of diversity in contestants, which changed drastically in 2019 when Black women were simultaneously crowned as Miss America, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA and Miss Universe for the first time ever.

After 2020 saw yet another Black beauty crowned as Miss USA with Mississippi’s own Asya Branch, it’s now happening for a third time in a row with 2021’s champ, Elle Smith of Kentucky.

‘Beauty consultant’ arrested for butt injection that killed woman

A Houston woman was charged with manslaughter for performing an unlicensed silicone butt injection that killed a woman, officials said.

Lisa Fernandez, 47, was arrested on Tuesday for her involvement in the death of 38-year-old Marja McClendon of St. Louis, Missouri, who died days after her appointment with Fernandez at her apartment in 2018.

The self-identified “beauty consultant” had been working out of her home since 2004, according to court documents, obtained by KSDK. Fernandez obtained the silicone illegally and administered it incorrectly with a syringe.

McClendon was left in pain and feeling sick after her first round of injections on April 24, 2018, but she returned the following day to receive her second round of injections after Fernandez refused to give her a refund.

The second procedure had to be stopped multiple times due to McClendon being in severe pain, officials said.

McClendon began losing her breath and
