Miss America crowns 1st winner of Indian descent; racist tweets flow
CNN ^ | September 16, 2013 | Leslie Bentz

(CNN) -- No sooner had the tiara been placed atop her head than a barrage of racist tweets flooded the Internet.

"If you're #Miss America you should have to be American," said one.

"WHEN WILL A WHITE WOMAN WIN #MISSAMERICA? Ever??!!" screamed another.

Nina Davuluri is American. She just happens to be of Indian descent. In fact, she's the first Indian-American to be crowned Miss America.

But the tweets that followed the 2014 pageant in Atlantic City on Sunday night didn't focus on how it's the second consecutive year that a Miss New York has taken the crown, or about the judge's questions (including ones about Miley Cyrus and Syria).

They were about Davuluri's heritage.

"Well they just picked a Muslim for Miss America. That must've made Obama happy. Maybe he had a vote," vented one person.

Not that it bears pointing out, but Davuluri's not a Muslim -- and the president didn't have a vote.

The author picks 2 tweets out of a tweet ocean and thinks he made some kind of point?

They must have left the “racist” tweets out of the article.

Yup. Even if she were from a muslim country that doesn’t automatically make her a muslim. The Detroit area is full of non muslim middle easterners.

The 24-year-old Davuluri, who’s from Syracuse, competed on a platform of “Celebrating Diversity through Cultural Competency.”

Can anyone that is not a flaming liberal understand what that title even means?
She is not that pretty and her platform was Politically Correct nonsense.
WE HAVE A WINNER!

Before the show started, someone told me that one of the contestants was “in trouble” for calling the present Miss American “fat.” My first thought was that she was eliminated way before the final women were chosen.

Guess who it was?

More than half the people on Twitter are imposters simply trying to make their perceived political opponents look bad.

Basically, if a known person tweets something, it might be newsworthy . . . emphasis on might.

Miss Kansas, Teressa Vail was the winner of ABC’s America’s Choice, an online competition where viewers were given the opportunity to vote for their favorite Miss America contestant.

Good point. I remember the same hullabaloo during the NBA Finals when the little boy dressed as a Mariachi sang the National Anthem.

Agreed. When you compare her to many Indian women, she’s just not that attractive.

“Miss America? You mean Miss 7-11,” tweeted Jalin Leatherman, perpetuating the tired stereotype about Indians and convenience stores.

So if 75% of the convenience stores in my city are operated by Indians we are not to acknowledge that? Why? Not playing anymore. If a statement is true if it is a fact then it is legit commentary! Period!

I agree. Celebrating Competency through Cultural Diversity makes as much/as little sense as her platform. With liberal pc language, you can just put the mushy keywords in any order.
