Occasionally Steve Sailer will write about Malvina Hoffman`s sculptures, or Carleton Coon`s book, The Living Races of Man, but if I wanted to interest an anthropology class in the concept of human diversity, I`d show them this slide show of the Miss Universe Competition, which shows the most beautiful women from all over the world, all beautiful in different ways. (Mass immigration makes this confusing fron an anthropological point of view, of course. Miss Germany is Asli Bayram, whose parents came from Turkey.)

There are also pictures of Muslim women protesting the event. It`s the first time in nine years that there has been an Indonesian contestant, and they`re not happpy about that.

Previous beauty pageant unhappinesses included a riot in Nigeria, and some consternation over the unguarded remarks of Miss Bolivia.
