New York woman of Asian-Indian descent crowned Miss America — and racist ignorami go nuts!
As one who considers beauty pageants silly and irrelevant, I wouldn’t ordinarily have anything to say here about last night’s Miss America doings in Atlantic City.
But I can’t resist taking note of how some folks are reacting to the crowning of Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, an Indian-American woman born in Syracuse.
If you Google the terms “racist” and “Miss America,” you’ll get links to scads of stories about mouth-breathers taking issue with the pageant judges’ choice. Some idiots even refer to Davaluri as “an Arab” and “a Muslim.”
