    As the gorgeous Miss America 2014 Nina Davaluri flaunted her crown with utmost grace, there were some who couldn't handle the prospect of a non-white, non-blonde, non-blue eyed woman of Indian origin winning the title. Racist comments flooded twitter. While some unabashedly called her an Arab, refusing to acknowledge her as an American, others just shook their heads in disbelief.
    Pookie tweeted,

    "
    Jessica Ayres sure didn't know what she was saying when she tweeted,
    "
    " Savannah Dale echoed her thoughts.

    Some went to the extent of associating her with al Qaeda and calling her a terrorist on social media.

    Others cracked the age old 7-11 Indian-American joke.
    But the most offensive and insensitive tweets would have to be Luke Brasili's.
    The judges decision must be commended despite the clear prevalence of racism.

    Do you think a "more American" woman ought to have won? Do you think Nina Davaluri would have won a pageant in India? Leave your thoughts in comments.

    She is pretty. I, however, think that Miss Russia Elmira Abdrazakova looks prettier.

    Guys, calm it down. Most of the tweets are coming from females who are feeling rejected. I can tell you that Chinese and Indian women have lately gone up on the demand list among many American males.

    They are themselves to blame! Perhaps their men are fed up of White Feminazis.

    Boss Because she is a Indian. Its a common brush aside the non white mentality that is in question.

    Of course you would, you Marxist–Leninist! Would you have liked her even more if she held a sickle and a hammer in her hands?

    :troll:

    (no offence... Peace)

    You missed my point.

    Elmira Abdrazakova looks like an Indian girl. Look her up.

    Did! She definitely looks central Asian to me... One of the ex-soviet states. Probably is.

    Though I would say the new Miss America looks more like a Sri Lankan than an Indian.

    She is Tatar. She was born in Kazakhstan, but is a Russian citizen. Not all Tatars are from Kazakhstan though. Many are from Tatarstan, a republic in Russia, the same place where they make Mil and Kamov helicopters and KamAZ trucks.
