So there’s a new Miss America crowned. Â She’s beautiful, she’s talented – and oh yeah, she’s of Indian descent.
CNN did an article on the racists and how they came out of the woodwork to insult the new Miss America. Â But there’s something in the article that just makes my blood boil. Â Here it is (emphasis mine):
Despite a night of firsts, a tired theme emerged following Davuluri’s victory: Racists took to Twitter to lambaste the pageant for picking an Indian-American. They were none too kind to Davuluri herself, either, with one particularly uninformed tweeter calling her a Muslim.
Seriously, CNN? Â Since when is being called a Muslim something bad? Â This is not just ridiculous, but it’s bad reporting as well.
But then again, what do you expect from “info-tainment news”?
