After several statements to Latino Rebels defending its decision to strip the title of a seven-year-old Miss Hispanic Delaware winner Jakiyah Mckoy for not being Latina enough, the Facebook page of Nuestras Raíces Delaware sent us the following image and quote today:


This Jakiyah after the removal of the title and she was happy and enjoying her time. We hope that the community shifts focus back to the many positive outcomes of the organization this mortifying to both the organization and the family. Hispanic Heritage month that is our focus right now and keeping education moving forward about Latinos and Hispanics.
