Before I go into the post, I must assure you that — although I’ve written “Americans” in the title — I don’t judge people by their nationality, religion or race. Calling all Americans racists would be as stupid as some Americans calling all Muslims terrorists just because some are.
This Tumblr posting just grabbed my attention. I’m not really into Miss [City] and Miss [Country] thing. So I’m not particularly proud that some Muslim, or some South Asian for that matter, has won Miss America crown. But the reaction from a lot of Americans on Twitter is devastatingly cruel, sad, racist and downright unacceptable.
P.S. I’m not sentimental because she’s a Muslim or because she’s a south Asian. I’m just frustrated at how Americans are reacting to her. Just because someone’s name isn’t what they’re used to in and her skin isn’t white, you can’t call her terrorist.
But I already lost any intention to talk sense into these mindless arrogant idiots.
