I wonder if some people actually acknowledge the words they recite in the Pledge of Allegiance and/or The National Anthem which clearly state "Home of the Free" because it still feels like we're living in the 1600's....
Miss America was crowned over the weekend, and as you may already know, she was the 1st Indian-American woman to claim the crown. While lots of people were excited for history in the making right in front of them, others were appalled at the thought/fact that a woman with Indian decent had an EQUAL OPPORTUNITY at the thrown like all the other contestants.
It's honestly more sad than pathetic because the idiots of society continue to keep the rest of the nation stagnant from progression. Race will always be obvious since no one person looks exactly alike, but the stereotyping is so unnecessary. I'm all for social networking giving people a platform to express themselves but there is such thing as a filter (for your idiocracy). Unfortunately, idiot tweet are a lot of we got in response to Miss America:
"Miss America right now or miss Al Qaeda?"
"Miss America is a terrorist. Whatever. It's fine."
"9/11 was 4 days ago and she gets Miss America?"
"I swear I'm not racist but this is America."
"How the f*** does a foreigner win Miss America? She is Arab! #Idiots"
"And the Arab wins Miss America. Classic"
etc....and the bafoolery continues......
Regardless the gender, heritage, color or hair type, hard work is hard work and it pays off! With that being said congratulations to Miss America 2013! Proud that the pageant is breaking new barriers this year!
