Indian - American wins MISS AMERICA - mass racism & hate follows. ...

Miss America 2013: Nina Davuluri, Miss New York, Crowned Amid Torrent Of Twitter Hate


That country will never evolve out of its roots of racism.



ATLANTIC CITY, NJ - SEPTEMBER 11:

Apparently, Twitter threw a parade for newly crowned Miss America, Nina Davuluri.

A hate parade.

Davuluri, who reigned as Miss New York, was awarded the top crown on Sunday night in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The 24-year-old is the second winner from her state in the past two years -- but the first of Indian descent.

“I’m so happy this organization has embraced diversity,” she said at her first press conference in Atlantic City. “I’m thankful there are children watching at home who can finally relate to a new Miss America.”

And that may have been too much for some to swallow. Here's a smattering of the scorn smeared across the Twitterverse shortly after Davuluri's coronation -- a minority, but rather shockingly vocal opinion.

Be warned. Hate ahead.


You have got to be kidding me... We have a black president, now Miss America is an ARAB. Maybe this world is really coming to an end ������

— Jimmy Slimmy (@PolishPoundCake) September 16, 2013

Are you serious??!!! The Arab wins??!!! This is miss AMERICA!!! Not miss Arabia!!! Miss Kansas is in the army and is a country girl!!! C'mon

— Cade Minnick (@Cademinnick413) September 16, 2013

I thought this was Miss America, not Miss Arab.

— Anthis (@Anthis12) September 16, 2013
The cruel cavalcade went on, with one user suggesting the coronation must have 'made Obama happy,' while another vented, 'When will a white woman win Miss America?'

Even Fox News host Todd Starnes appeared to get on the hate wagon, tweeting thus:

"The liberal Miss America judges won't say this - but Miss Kansas lost because she actually represented American values."

For her part, Davuluri took the slings and arrows of outrageous America in stride.

“I have to rise above that,” she told reporters at a press conference after the event. “I always viewed myself as first and foremost American.”

As Time magazine reports, it took about an hour after the coronation for the sane side of the Twitterverse to prevail, eventually banishing the bigotry with hearty support and congratulations for the new Miss America.

THIS IS OBAMA'S AMERICA!

This is what Rush, Alex Jones and Sarah were warning us about!

Or maybe we just shouldn't give a shit. Like, about Miss America as a thing, and a controversy if she's a shade of "not white" that apparently represents their country. Shit...imagine if she was Mexican. Then she'd be taking a job

Who cares about what a bunch of racist think? "Miss America" congratulates it's winners based on beauty and not the hue of their skin. Shit makes no sense. Anyone of any skin tone can be beautiful.

Who cares, is this really news? Unfortunately with Twitter and Facebook these days, there will always be negative overreactions to pretty much any event, this is what happens when idiots have easy access to a medium to publicize their opinions. This isn't isolated to Americans, idiots in Canada, Australia, England, China, etc.. flood to social media to express racist views over everything

Who cares about beauty pageants anymore.


Same thing happened a few years ago when MP Peter Mackay married a former Miss Canada who was a Muslim.

And sadly, the media being the media, now gives voice to these comments that otherwise would have stayed relatively anonymous had they not been given publication.

I disagree.

To use a huge paint brush, it is my perception that Americans view...

Asian= Smart, polite, safe, small population living in the USA, harmless (of course a couple generations ago, this was NOT the case)
Black=Criminals, gang-bangers, rising middle class, under-educated, president
Mexican= illegal, stealing jobs, over-population, dirty
"brown" people= Muslims, terrorist, threat to "america", to be feared
White= superior to all

A lot of people fear "brown" people....specifically, a lot of white Americans fear brown people. And, by brown people I mean Indian, South-east Asian, North African, Middle Eastern, etc...

Disclaimer: THIS IS NOT MY PERCEPTION OF THESE PEOPLE, IT IS SIMPLY MY PERCEPTION OF WHAT EURO-AMERICANS THINK.

I wouldn't apply that racist label to the entire USoA. Rather, it is only a portion of dumba$$es that are feeling that way. And those dumba$$es will never evolve out of their own stupidity.

More interesting is the fact that US demographics is changing quite rapidly. In particular, the Hispanic population is growing at a strong rate. Americans of African and Asian descent are also growing quite noticeably.

I'm pretty sure the 2 runner ups were both of Asian (Chinese?) descent, although they don't look 1st or even 2nd gen Asian to me.

Of course its news, something easy to swallow that the retards in the USA can get distracted by so they forget about all the really serious shit that the media won't report.

That's why I always disable comments on my Youtube videos. Vimeo seems to have a much more mature crowd compared to YT.
