Meet the beautiful black women competing in the Miss USA pageant!!

On Sunday, June 5 the FOX network will air the live telecast of the Miss USA 2016 pageant. Hosted by Terrance Jenkins and Julianne Hough, the competition has a total of 52 contestants vying for the title and the chance of a lifetime - to represent the United States in the Miss Universe pageant.

Sadly, out of the 52 contestants there are only seven black women in the pageant. I wish there were a lot more. So much for diversity huh? Seven women and two Latinas? Tsk tsk tsk

It's time to meet the magnificent seven. Let's get to know the black beauties competing in the Miss USA 2016 pageant!

2. Miss Georgia USA - Emanii Davis

Emanii is a 22-year-old senior at Valdosta State University and her favorite quote by Henry Ford is, “If you believe you can or you can’t you’re right."
