    Que alegria mas grande mis amigos!

    Soy Teleño y me dá mucha felicidad ver a una joven Garifuna y Teleña representando a nuestro pais y a su vez, a la comunidad Garifuna de Honduras.
    Kenia es una mujer inteligente, atractiva y elegante. Será una representante digna de la belleza de nuestra nación.

    Estaremos esperando con gran emocion, la fecha del evento en Las Vegas.
    Muchas felicidades Kenia y compartimos tu alegria con el mundo entero.

    Are there any Garinagu out there critically questioning the terms “Garifuna Barbie” or “exotic beauty”? How do you think Kenia’s election is linked to Honduran nationalism? Satuye

      Thanks for writing about 2010 Miss Universe contestant KENIA MARTINEZ, SATUYE AFRICA! I haven’t seen the term Garifuna Barbie used to describe KENIA MARTINEZ but it isn’t altogether suprising. Ditto the term, “exotic beauty”. There is a novelty factor to consider here and those terms speak to that to a degree–as far as couching KENIA’s participation in terms that mainstream audiences can understand.
