    True diversity means diversity of thoughts, ideas, skills, backgrounds, fields of activity, pluarism in terms of ideology and the freedom to express and activate in all these things.

    .
    You sure didn't describe the Democrat Party. True diversity is forbidden under the Democrat tent. Goose stepping and being in lockstep is strictly enforced.

    i'm not pointing fingers at any party. This article is about racism still being alive and does not mention any party. Why would you even bring that up? Defensive much?

    To an extent, yes. However, I need only point you in the direction of "RINO" to let you know the same is incredibly true in the Republican Party.

    Believe it or not that is a claim being made. That the judges were liberal and this she does not represent american values because of her heritage. WTF

    Nina Davuluri … happens to be of Indian descent. In fact, she's the first Indian-American to be crowned Miss America,” Leslie Bentz reported for CNN.com. “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 inquiries about Miley Cyrus and Syria). They were about Davuluri's heritage.”

    On the feminist blog Jezebel, Laura Beck wrote, “Racists got so mad, they started mixing up Indian, Indian-American, Arab, Muslim, and everything in between. It's (literarily) a most impressive display of dumb mixed with intolerance and even more stupidity.”

    some users tweeted that Davuluri was not ‘American enough’ to win the title while others went as far as to say she ‘looks like a terrorist

    ...after the dust settled a significant contingent of Twitter users voiced support for her.


    It is however, encouraging to hear that so many supported her in response to the racist deluge.

    Not sure 'racism' applies here.

    63% of Indians are Caucasoid. She appears to be just that.

    And considering the Caste system, I doubt they are concerned about racism regardless.

    The Twitter freaks don't even know what's what.

    and are we not supposed to bring up political affiliation into the discussion? I guess it can not be mentioned if it makes the left look bad right?

That she chose to emphasize her Indian descent was a bit troubling to many, as this was a Miss America event, not a Miss Ethnicity event.
    This country is all about diversity. We are a melting pot. Embracing that reality and welcoming the traditions of the many ethnicities we represent, tolerance and acceptance. Those are pretty great values to present as American. Don't you think?

    "RINOS", neoconservatives, conservatives, Tea Party conservatives, moderate Republicans, close to reactionary Republicans, pro amnesty Republicans, Rule of law Republicans, etc., etc. sounds like diversity to me.

    Not accepted diversity. Again, if you're accused of being a RINO, what they are really saying is "Get the **** out of this party."

    You can bring up whatever you like and I can comment on it as I like. I see it as a bit of a derailment is my point.
