    She’s an American woman alright , of Indian heritage. The first woman of Indian heritage to win the crown . She deserves her 15 minutes and the recognition SW gives her. Just my opinion!

    And she doesn’t deserve the overt racism that has been generated over the past couple of days.
    America was supposed to be over its racism 40 years ago during the liberal 1970s. Why have we regressed?

    In bad times people want someone to blame — and the GOP has deliberately stoked racism as a political tactic for, oh, forty-odd years now…

    Seems to me all of the "black leaders " who keep throwing the race card are democrats.

    You’re so right. As a political philosophy and election year strategy, “white supremacy” has certainly proved to be about the most effective idea the GOP has going for it. The problem for them is: they’re more of us than there are of them, and we’re just beginning to flex our muscles at the polls.

    It is not racism to point out how the deck is still stacked against a particular group.
    And here is a sample of some of the comments I’ve read about the new Miss America. “It was a sympathy vote because of her color.” “It’s just political correctness – now no white girl will ever have a chance”. “Why don’t they let an American win?” “Oh great. A Muslim. That’ll make Obama happy.”

    Why, that would be you and the other conservatives. Liberals are not generally talking about racism, except where there’s actual racism. Like Libmbaugh’s charming “Shuck and jive campaign” comments last week, and the GOP moves to suppress the black vote by eliminating majority-black precincts in North Carolina.

    This column should have been about Miss Davuluri and her being crowned miss America. I apologize for feeding a troll and helping perpetuate this mess!

    I quit watching the MA pagent decades ago, so the first I heard about all of this was a friend of mine mentioning the racist tweets that started literally minutes after the crowning. Because Heaven forfend that we recognize someone as beautiful who isn’t lily-white, or thin enough to necessitate eating peas one at a time.
    I used to look forward to this country growing up… now I wonder if I’ll live to see it happen.

    Herman Cain didn’t need any help from the democrats to exit the scene. Just ask his wife.

    One more job outsourced to an Indian.

    The Liberals had nothing to do with Herman Cain not being the GOP candidate.
    It was the Republicans who abandoned him in the primaries.
    Geez, PAJ, either speak the truth or quit posting. Your fabrications are so obvious you look the total fool.

    “Was that sarcasm? It’s been the rwnj mantra that there is no racism in America excpet for the race wars the Democrats want to start. The reality, which is unfortunatel it even needs to be stated, is that racism not only never went away but is on the rise thanks to the “republican” “southern strategy””

    Sorry David you are wrong, the left has caused race issues, how else can you explain MSNBC making every issue about race in the first twenty minutes of every show. From Al Sharpton, Chris Wallace, Chris Hays, the Ed Show, Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell. Every issue, every sin, real or imagined is about race and the bad George Bush.


    Don’t believe me how many times has someone here put up a post saying something is racist for disagreeing with President Obama. Who is it who keeps putting up that Kid saying “That’s racist” over and over again.

    Truth is race baiting is a bigger issue than racism these days.

    Last excpet is spelled except and unfortunatel has no l on the end. That might have been a typo.
