Nikole Churchill, 22, won the contest at the college town in southern Virginia, but while she was all smiles, not everyone in the community was happy about the victory, the Times reports.
As well as the walkout, Miss Churchill had to contend with scowls, rather than the traditional sunny smiles, when she posed for a portrait with the runners up. All nine of the other contestants in the competition were black.
The following day Miss Churchill was heckled at a college football game and a previous Miss Hampton University said she was "very shocked" there was a white winner. "We've never had one before," Patrece Parson said.
In response, Miss Churchill, whose father is from Guam, wrote an open letter to President Barack Obama, saying: "I feel as though you could relate to my situation.
"I am sad to say that my crowning was not widely accepted . . . the true reason for the disapproval was because of the colour of my skin.
"I am not African-American."
The letter also caused offence, with Brittany Riddock, a second-year student, telling The Washington Post there was "no comparison between a black man becoming President and a white woman winning a beauty pageant at a black school".
Hampton University, at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay, is one of more than 80 historically black colleges in the US whose student populations are only gradually coming to reflect the diversity they exist to promote, largely because non-blacks have been slow to apply to them.

David Bohnett was the founder of the 1990s internet venture Geocities, which was purchased by Yahoo in 1999 near the peak of the technology stock bubble.
// According to a copy of Bohnett's acceptance speech on the foundation website, the honoree thanked Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa for his introduction and praised a recent New York Times Magazine article about young people "coming out" as homosexuals in middle school.
"This is the welcome, unstoppable, and inevitable result of the positive shift in generational attitudes toward being lesbian or gay, supported by the work that's been done over the last several decades by GLSEN, GLAAD, and countless other groups and activists," he said.
Bohnett then used his acceptance speech to attack religious groups opposed to homosexual political concerns.
"We must treat the causes of intolerance and bullying as well as the symptoms of them," he remarked. "And as we see most often, it is the evangelical and fundamentalist groups that teach homosexuality is a sin, who stand in the way of fairness and equality.
"It's time to combat head-on the religious organizations that are funding the opposition to marriage equality and safe school legislation."
The GLSEN honoree said he favored "the pursuit of spirituality" and "the wisdom and comfort and experience that can be gained through the study and belief in a higher power."
He also said it was important to support religious leaders and institutions that embrace "full equality" for homosexuals and their families.
"Let us make it known, however, that we will challenge those religious leaders and institutions that shamefully and cowardly use the imprimatur of their church and the name of god [sic] and Jesus to promote hatred and bigotry toward lesbians and gay men," Bohnett declared. "Among our greatest adversaries who actively work against us are the leaders of the Catholic, Mormon, and evangelical churches who seek to deny equal protection for us and for our children."
"The bible [sic] is all too often used as a weapon against us, quoted and mis-quoted by those who seek to deny us freedom and equality," he continued, arguing that children taught that the Bible condemns homosexuality may become "school bullies" and later become the adults who vote "to deny marriage equality."
"It's time we raise our children to be independent thinkers and deeply suspicious of bible beating organized religion. We'd be much better off if parents were honest with their children about the hypocrisy of some churches with regard to homosexuality."
// Harry Knox, a leader with the homosexual activist group Human Rights Campaign and an appointee to President Barack Obama's advisory council on faith-based partnerships, has called Pope Benedict XVI and Catholic bishops "discredited leaders" and has attacked the Knights of Columbus as an "army of oppression" for their work to preserve the definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
According to the GLSEN website, the group claims a national network of 10,000 "students and allies working to create safer schools." It reports that more than 3,000 student clubs commonly known as "gay-straight alliances" have registered with the organization.
President Barack Obama appointed GLSEN founder Kevin Jennings as director of the Office of Safe and Drug Free Schools, the "Safe School Czar."
Jennings, a former teacher, has come under fire for not referring to the police a male student who came to him for advice after being involved in a sexual incident with a man he met in a bathroom. Critics also question his qualifications for the office because of his past drug use and his praise for Harry Hay, a homosexual activist connected with the pedophile group NAMBLA.
