It's be nice to think we live in a post-racial society, but every now-and-then America's racial divisions rears its head over the pettiest of all things. When it does, the ignorance is pretty ugly. For example, Sunday evening's Miss America contest in Atlantic City. Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, was crowed the winner of the 2014 pageant. She's the pageant's second Asian-American winner and its first Indian-American winner. This is what she looks like.
This decision pissed a bunch of racists off, so they took to Twitter to air their discontent with this year's Miss America. Buzzfeed did a heck of a job rounding up the most racist ones out there. The ignorance here is pretty disturbing:
