But...of course

America, fuck yeah.
Nina Davuluri has been hit with Twitter abuse after becoming the first woman of Indian descent to be crowned Miss America. After her victory in Atlantic City, the 24-year-old beauty queen, who was born in Syracuse, New York, and is believed to be a practising Hindu, said: "I'm so happy this organisation has embraced diversity.
But enough about diversity in the objectifying racket, let's get on to what we as a country are really good at, being bigoted assholes on twitter!
One Twitter user, DallasRobinson8, wrote: "I am literally soo mad right now a ARAB won. #MissAmerica"

Jakeamick5 added: "How the **** does a foreigner win miss America? She is a Arab! #idiots"

Emi_adkins said: "It's called Miss America. Get outta here New York you look like a terrorist. #bye #americanforamerica"

And another user said: "Well they just picked a Muslim for Miss America. That must've made Obama happy. Maybe he had a vote."
The really sad thing is that the bigotry is so inaccurate. If you are going to be a bigoted asshole, at least get your slurs right!

I'm surprised that these idiots can use a computer without any opposable digits.

I wonder why Governor Piyush "Bobby" Jindal has been so quiet on this. I mean, he is an American born of immigrants from India. Or maybe since he goes by "Bobby" he doesn't feel the need to speak out against such hatred.

Please don't forget Nimrata Nikki Randhawa Haley the current governor of the great Murican State of South Carolina and her principled stand against such slurs. Oh! Wait. She's a Republican ----- never mind!
