Dear American's spazzing about Miss America

Dear Americans freaking out that an "Arab" woman was crowned Miss America.

Newsflash, she was born in New York.  That makes her American.

End of discussion.

If you haven't noticed, she's gorgeous and really frickin' smart.

Just because she's not 9-generations of hick doesn't make her any LESS american than any other contestant.

The crap spewed about her on Twitter is disgusting and you people should be ashamed.

Things like this, make me really bloody glad I'm Canadian.

  1. Ugh... people are so flipping stupid!!! Please don't hold it against all of America because of the dirtbag racists who feel the need to continue existing.

    1. Trust me I don't but honestly stuff like this is ridiculous. I mean the girl was born in New York, raised in OKLAHOMA. She's probably more American than half the Italians in Jersey!

  2. As an Indian-American, I find this bittersweet. It's always great to see a brown-skinned American making it to the top ranks of mainstream culture (as much as I HATE beauty pageants). But it's frustrating when people think American = white.

    I get tired of people asking me where I'm from (Chicago), when I came to America (when my mom pushed me out of her lady parts), and how I hardly have any accent at all (not true, I sometimes sound Midwestern).

    Anyway, I won't go on a rant in your comments page. Thank you for posting this, and the 9th generation hick comment made me smile. Also, I love Canada!

    1. I totally relate. My parents were not born in Canada but came here in the 60s and I was born in Toronto. Does that make me less Canadian than someone who's ancestors can be traced back 10 generations? Hell no.

      I enjoyed the 9th generation hick line as well. I held myself back and didn't include inbred ;)

      Feel free to come to Canada, we are always willing to take American Refugee's that are fleeing stupidity!!

  3. Yeah. We're not all this stupid. I swear. The dumbest part is that the whole US was founded by immigrants! That, and the desire to steal land from indigenous peoples... Man. We've been assholes from the very beginning, haven't we? Shame...

    1. I know you're not all that stupid, some of you are AWESOME!

      It's true, even the "Americans" were French, English and Spanish refugees. It's just interesting to see the difference in mindset. Here we're proud of the multiculturalism in this country. We may not always be spot on in how we deal with it but that kinda hatred is something I really can't comprehend because it's just not something I've had to witness in my personal life.

      I mean 75% of the chicks in Miss Canada (that get to run for Miss Universe) are Italian-Canadian, Indian-Canadian, Asian-Canadian. There's like 3 blonde chicks in the batch!

    2. I've considered moving to Canada...but it's already cold enough in Chicago. Our people sometimes suck.

    3. I don't think it's any colder in Toronto than Chicago. We're both on one of the great lakes so we get the wind. We're also farther south than half of Wisconsin and almost all of Minnesota.
