I read that a few days ago. Very sad. First of all, she’s American. Second, she is of Indian decent, that’s not Arab. Who cares if she was Arab anyways? People…SMH.

@lia22:  Being born in America most certainly makes you American, no matter what your skin color is. Having said that, Miss AMERICA could have chosen a different talent besides Indian dancing, y’know? It didn’t quite strike me as representing America.

Since Ms. America is a product of Donald Trump’s empire I tried to see if he’d said anything about the scandal… he appears to be silent on this one, perhaps because all I could find were pages of reports of various scandals ranging from contestants not being pretty enough to cheating.  I guess his silence says volumes…

i can only laugh at the tweet by dallas robinson in which he said “I am literarily soo mad right now a ARAB won” because really? you can’t even put together a coherent sentence. literarily?? a arab?? JFC the stupid is very very strong with this one.

@Aquaria:  Why should she have chosen a talent other than Indian dancing? Being American doesn’t require (or even suggest) ignoring one’s own heritage.

I would also like to point out that one doesn’t have to be born in America to be American.

I thought racism was over? We have a black President.

@lia22:  It is sad.  People are just ignorant and have no class.  Bigorty is so very ugly, and some people wear it like a badge of honor.  The girl is American, I could care less what her heritage or national origin is.

@bmo88:  +1

Miss. America is from New York so I should be proud as a New Yorker, although I’m not really a big fan of the whole contest anyway. I think it’s horrible what people have said about her. I bet Donald Trump is just happy to get publicity. The ratings on Miss.America have been down for awhile.

@Aquaria:  what did you want her to do, dress up as the statue of liberty and sing you’re a grand old flag? lol. there was nothing wrong with her talent. america is a melting pot of different cultures and she was representing her’s.

@Aquaria:  I actually loved her talent. What’s wrong with acknowledging the fact that th US is a multicultural society? 

I read about this the other day. It’s seriously disgusting.

@somethingaquamarine:  Agree. In fact, I grew up thinking of and loving America as a melting pot of all sorts of different cultures. The United States of America was founded by immigrants, so I think this an important aspect of our culture. I think having someone bring in and proudly share aspects of their heritage is a positive thing. Hopefully it speaks to the part of America that cherishes our blending of heritages and history to make this country what it is.

It’s just such a shame that so many people on the internet brought the ugly side of America to light (not talking about anyone here, btw). People are so ASTOUNDINGLY ignorant and intolerant. IMO, those people are the unpatriotic ones, for not accepting that anyone can be an American if they don’t have the same exact skin tone, heritage, and beliefs that they do. Land of the free, unless you look different, come from a different background, or have a different opinion– then you’re “a terrorist” (seriously, WTF is with people calling her that) or you need to “go back to where you came from”.

That is not the America I believe in nor the one I want my kids to grow up in. This debacle has saddened and disgusted me.
