Maudine nailed it, I was also appalled by the ignorant tweets that went out
after the pageant about her race, the really sad part is the racists
couldn't even Identify her as actual heritage and made tailiban and middle
eastern jokes.Not too surprising really.
@ Frank and Cats: Really? Because the winner was not traditional European in
looks there had to be a liberal agenda to her win?Your comments
indicate an extreme level of ethnocentricity - the idea that because of her
ethnicity, she could not possibly be deserving of the win on merits alone.She won because she deserved to win. That's all. And
the fact that you have to try so hard to explain it, speaks very poorly of you.
I saw the end of the pageant. I thought the questions were dumb and the answers
were unimpressive. I think if she truly was the best candidate, then it is
right for her to win. I hope she wasn't chosen due to
political correctness which is what I suspect might be the case. The Miss
America Pageant is trying so hard to regenerate itself and be relevant again,
that I suspect it is pushing diversity out of the need to be accepted.These women should win because they are the best candidate and not because
they fill a profile to generate attention for the pageant and be politically
correct. I hope that wasn't the case.
They've chosen a beautiful woman. Smart, talented and motivated, too. She
is destined for a great career.
Does anyone remember when this contest was to choose a beautiful woman and not a
liberal political agenda contest? It is as worthless now as the Nobel Peace
