US wakes up to a Miss America of Indian descent
For the first time America’s top beauty queen is a woman of Indian origin, a first partly clouded by a spate of hateful Tweets branding her an Arab terrorist.
(MY TAKE: It’s really sad in 2013 that some in America have refused to embrace diversity. Twitter exploded with racist statements regarding the new Miss America Nina Davuluri saying she was an Arab…she is actually of Indian descent.
We are a melting pot nation where people who have come from all around the world have made this country their home. In the future there will be more people who look like Miss Davuluri than not. Racism and hate shouldn’t be a American value. Congratulations Nina on being chosen Miss America 2014)
