In a first, Indian-origin girl is crowned Miss America, but hit by racist slurs


Nina Davuluri Dubbed Arab', Miss Terrorist'

Chidanand Rajghatta TNN

Washington: The tiara had barely been placed on her head and the customary tears of joy had just emerged when racist taunts erupted on social media, marring the moment of triumph for Nina Davuluri, the first-ever Miss America of Indian origin.
   "And the Arab wins Miss America. Classic," tweeted @Granvil_Colt minutes after the usual final flourish ended in the crowning of the Indian-American, who is the current Miss New York. "Ummm W*F? Have we forgotten 9/11?" said @anthonytkr, associating Nina with the terrorist attack on the US. Some called her Miss al Qaida and others dubbed her Miss Terrorist. "How the f*** does a foreigner win miss America? She is a Arab!" followed up @jakeamick5.
   Nina, 24, for the record, is very much American but of Indian origin, just as sundry racist tweeple are of European and Caucasian extract. Daughter of immigrants from Vijayawada in AP, she was born in Syracuse, New York, and grew up in Oklahoma and Michigan.
   But in a flaming demonstration that an egalitarian, non-discriminatory US, like with India, is a work in progress, bigotry and bias kept popping up on social media for hours after the event.
   "Miss America? You mean Miss 7-11," sneered another racist, referring to the widespread ownership and management of convenience stores by people of Indian-origin. "Miss America is brought by their sponsors PF Changs and 7-11," jeered another.
   It's another matter that the Davuluris fit the Indian-American profile of what the US Census says is the academically most-accomplished and highest-earning ethnic group, "native" white Americans included. Nina's father Davuluri Koteshwara Choudhary, who migrated to the US in 1981, is a gynaecologist; Nina, whose mother is also a doctor, has a degree in Brain Behaviour and Cognitive Science from the University of Michigan and aspires to be a cardiologist, a goal for which she pledged the $50,000 prize money she won with her crown.

BARBS IN THE USA

@Granvil_Colt: And the Arab wins America. Classic.
@jakeamic5: How the f*** does a foreigner win miss America? She is a Arab?#idiots
@LrVanVoo6741: Miss Arab wins Miss America and the score of the Seattle/SanFran game is 5-0 at the half? What is life?
@JAyres15: I swear I'm not racist but this is America
@NateBerard: Asian or indian are you kiddin this is america omg
@LukeBrasili: 9/11 was 4 days ago and she gets miss America?

its shameful... that few racist people can shame an  otherwise  tolerant community... Dead

it shows their upbringing, insecurity and frustartion with life... i was under the impression that when america can accept a black president... why not  accept an asian origin miss america?? is it coz this title is given to a beautiful woman who represents all the beautiful women in america?? the women felt jealous to be represented by dark color.. while the men couldnt properly ogle at her due to her color??? Dead

thanks for making this topic... @ TM... Clap nina... needs all the support she canget to give a resounding slap to the racist peeps.. Dead

congrats... the racist people need 2 have a reality check, she's not an arab and nor does she look like a terrorist...she may be indian but has always felt she is an American before being an indian... so why hold her ethnicity and religion against her...? its disgusting!
 
didn't get why someone said she looked like a terrorist... since when do terrorist have a "certain" look...

well saidClap...but there r still some that don't accept him as the president and don't want him 2 continue... they really need 2 grow up and stop becoming mini versions of hitler... the world is full of different people and we don't choose our colour/ethnicity so why one earth hold something a person can't control against them?Angry
