Dark Controversy Surrounds Miss Haiti 2010 Sarodj Bertin

For OpEdNews: Chantal Laurent - Writer

Covering Up the Ugly Truth About the Assassination of Mireille Durocher
Sarodj Bertin has been selected to represent Haiti at the 2010 Miss Universe pageant. Miss Bertin is a 24 year old lawyer who has lived in the Dominican Republic since she was 9.

There is fierce debate in the Haitian diaspora about Miss Bertin's selection as Miss Haiti. The controversy centers around her long-time residency in the Dominican Republic (15 years), her light complexion, her "Dominicanized" persona and most disturbingly, the execution style assassination of her mother Mireille Durocher Bertin in 1995. Given the divide, it remains to be seen whether Miss Haiti will "give hope to a devastated country."

are you surprised?

well, Haitians come in a range of shades. i have known light skinned Haitians.

given that, we do know that whenever there is a selection of light skin v dark skin the light skin will be selected. that is the rule isn't it?
