    You are a pretty good twister. You mentioned they are pariahs in their own country.

    Beauty without brains is useless. Talent takes up highest percentage point of 35/30 percentage.

    True. The advent of the Internet just makes expressing opinions easier. Its not like if people are not expressing them means these opinions don't exist. Its no big deal and only makes people look stupid. Thankfully we now life in a time in history when most of the time all people will do is say ignorant things. 50 years ago she might have needed police protection.

    He willing kind of makes me proud to be an American...for the first time (JUST KIDDING!!! .) Seriously, I love it when I see Americans of all stripes achieving their dreams proving the things we say about anything being possible for anyone isn't just an empty slogan, it really happens..

    re: Miss America crowns 1st winner of Indian descent; racist tweets flow [W:216]

    OK, her parents were almost certainly immigrants to the United States. But she was born in the United States (Syracuse, New York). She studies in the United States (University of Michigan). Has been living in Michigan since age 4. Her dad is a gynecologist. She has made the dean's list, won the Michigan Merit award, national honor society award and in 2006 she was placed runner-up in Miss Teen America.

    She might not be as American as apple pie according to some but she seems a prototypical American woman and I do not see the big issue with her immigrant status. In one way or another, except for the American native indians, every man woman and child in the USA is descendent from immigrants.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!

    Why should it have never existed? Because you don't like it?
    It's not my taste in entertainment that is being discussed. It's the face that everyone who enjoys this crap has bad taste in entertainment and permits a cultural phenomenon to exist that can only do harm. It's not about oppression, I feel no such thing from this event. I just feel the stupidity oozing in through the internet.

    I think the public response to the racist idiots on twitter is a promising sign.

    QFT

    LOL - When did they even hold this event? And more importantly, WHY are they even bothering?

    It does make for good movie though:

    Who chimes "No Absolutes!" chimes absolutely.
