    Is Miss. America pageant only for white Americans?

    When an Indian American wins the spelling bee, nobody minds but when an Indian American wins Miss. America, people make racist comments! Why?

    Because Miss America is an outdated remnant of revolting sexist nonsense that comes from a time when sexism, racism and bigotry were standard in the culture.

    Those who enjoy it are most likely not the most enlightened among us in any case.

    Apparently so. The racist backlash on Twitter is just a reflection of what America is; one of the good things about social media, it exposes people for what they actually are. Of course, the backlash didn't surprise me at all; I've grown up in America, I know what it's all about. America is afraid of anyone they consider "an outsider", and not just in the field of Miss America pageants. America is divisive, fundamentally.

    It is like when in the last Summer Olympics when Gabby Johnson (I think that is her name) won the All Around in Gymnastics, people were more critical of how she did her hair than the fact that she won.  If Barrak Obama was white, you wouldn't here as much trash about him as you do now.

    because people are obsessed with race in this country. so many people continue to acknowledge someone elses skin color as if they are able to gauge what type of person they are because of it. every time it comes out that someone is the first of whatever race to do something, people act ridiculous. they either behave like they are so proud saying what a great day. or people make idiotic racist comments and stereotypes. I personally dont see why it matters. i say this all the time, but race is nothing more than where someones immediate ancestry was from on a certain piece of dirt surrounded by an imaginary line given a name. to think this matters in any way about anything is crazy. why do people continue to be obsessed with race?

    The American white population has as yet not got over its hangover of slavery over the black man and domination over other nonwhites. The fact is 27% of America is non white and this is a galling thought for the whites. That is the reason 60% of the whites oppose Obama, just for the heck of it.
    Unfortunately the whites in due course will have to reconcile to this new development. Some have realized it already. An Indian origin girl winning the beauty pageant is great stuff.It shows that there is hope in the future despite a large majority of whites still wanting race dominance.

    As a society, America still has a lot of growing up to do.  We have always been dependent on our diversity to make us strong, however we have done a terrible jobs recognizing that fact.

    What were some of the racist comments?  The Miss America Beauty Contest has been made fun of for as long as I have lived in this country.  Rather than racist, could some of the comments be more "gender" related discrimination? 

    There have been enumerable non-white winners in this contest over the years.  I have watched some contests when I was little but have not seen any in about 20 years.  But to say that this is a "white" racism is a stretch, since there have been many contestants who were not white who won over the years.  That more white women won the contest in the past would perhaps reflect more about who was in the majority years ago.

    I agree with stuff4kids.  Why do people even care about such pageants. Modern day pageants try to put on a face saying they are about more than physical beauty, but does any even moderately intelligent person believe that?  Has there ever been an ugly contestant or if yes an ugly contestant that has won?

    These pageants are nothing more than a meat show of self-centered egotistical women who think they are more beautiful than anyone else judged by celebrities and or politically motivated groups intending to make a profit.

    I think where cries against non-whites winning sometimes may come from those recognizing the winners are often the result of politically motivated decisions.

    But even if we can agree the contests are usually far from legitimate, who cares?  These shows never interest me and I never watch.

    Whoa now! Racist bigot A--holes come in all shapes sizes and colors. They are the vocal trash of all society. Because they are vocal does not elevate them to a status that is representative of 99% of all people. Have you ever been in a service place or store and one person comes in and is so loud and obnoxious that you are actually embarrassed for them, and you, because you are also human? Well I have.

    If you knew that a person had an illness like Tourettes Syndrome and they just kept stuttering the f word over and over loudly. You would have compassion.
    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourette_syndrome )

    Think of these people the same, perhaps their illness is environmentally caused or perhaps genetically like people who feel absolutely no remorse at anything. But what ever the cause their neurons just are misfiring, something is wrong with the wiring up in the brain. Hate is not a natural born condition --- it just is not. Love seems to be as you do not need to teach it. (yes you can destroy it)

    So what ever the cause these people are sick. And I mean that clinically. Heck there are probably thousands and thousand of people in anger management classes in ever large city in the US. Hate and anger are a recognizable and definable disease.
    Now we make special accommodations everywhere for disabled or "handicapped" people and it is even in the laws to do so.
    I suggest when you read this filth and garbage you see it for what it is; a diseased mind verbalizing that sickness. And then make accommodation for them. Sometimes online I give them a little spanking therapy ;-) But normally I ignore it as I would the poor kid with Tourettes.

    Because Americans are afraid of 'the other' and they think Americans have to be blonde and white. But the reality is that the USA is a racially diverse country full of people who are beautiful in different ways and it seems like some white Americans don't accept this.

    Also I think ignorance has played a part in this - it seems a lot of people think she is from the Middle East or at least that she is of Middle East origins. Somehow, ignorants think that means that she is a terrorist or not American. It's truly sad. But I'm glad she won maybe people will get educated from it.

    Here's the deal: people are going to make racist comments no matter what. I'm sure an Indian-American winning the national spelling bee has undergone racism as well.

    Are some Americans racist? Of course. Are they the only ones on earth who are racist? Of course not. My wife is Asian and suffered racism while living in another Asian country on a regular basis. African-Americans who came to that same country to work couldn't find work because of their skin color.

    This is not an American problem, it's a people problem.

    Having said that, the Miss America and Miss Universe "competitions" are a joke. After all these years of striving for equality and women's rights, we still have this joke of an event?

    I don't think the 314 million people in America should be judged based on comments made by a very small group of people on social media.  This is where many are so easily persuaded to view a country, a nationality, or a group of people in a certain way.  Social media can be very harmful in this way. 

    There are always going to be people who say negative and horrible things and unfortunately those are the people who are the loudest, but they most definitely do not represent the majority of the people in any given place.

    I cannot recall the last "Pageant" I actually watched, read of or had interest in, but I know I was a teen-ager.  (that would be DECADES ago!)   If you seriously look at the entire concept of this competition, "mission" included, we would accept that it's time to bring the final curtain down...and leave it down.   
    It was/is not exclusive to WHITE Americans,  It's always been open to all races, to my knowledge.  Comments, controversy and issues, however have always existed in the media and always will.   I usually ignore it. 
    Victories in these pageants, now in 2013, seem to be of interest to a very small section of our population.  I suppose they serve some purpose, but not much of any major consequence, relatively speaking.   
    As with anything else, this is all a matter of personal opinion.   IMHO, there are many incredibly brilliant & talented young American women, making a difference in the world, who may not "appear" to qualify as a CONTESTANT in a pageant.....and I wonder......can this even matter???

    Obviously not - based on truthful historical information.
    Racists make comments to stir empathy for their demonic banner in an attempt to spur further hatred.
    Righteous people recognize that there is no color attributed to an American.
    An American is an individual that loves, cherishes, and honors the nation by not declaring themselves a hyphenated American.
    The media is good at spreading such demonic banter because it will add sales to their media monsters through revenue increase.
    The broad problem is that hyphenated Americans wish to proclaim themselves different from all others that do not hyphenate themselves.
    Racist Americans do not hyphenate themselves, so do you believe others should?

I don't think its for anyone to judge which skin color or race has the right to achieve anything, and I have plenty of American friends, & I'm an American Immigrant BTW, who are proud of the country for being so "liberal" & they've never treated me any different, in fact I was better & more trusted friend to many than their 'White American' counterparts...so its all about perspective & sound social sensibilities, which unfortunately some people lack very evidently, even today in 2013...let's just hope for Miss USA to feel her accomplishment for once, I wish her the best & all women who face such discrimination in any shape or form.
