I have a couple of Indian coworkers i'm friendly with. So I told one of them today that tthe new Miss America is of Indian heritage. The first thing she said was, "really? she must be very beautiful? And from up North? Fair complected?" LOL
So I said no, not that fair complected. And she googles her on her phone. And when she sees her, she's like, "very average. And not just bc of her skin color. I'm very surprised she was selected. In India, she wouldn't get a second look. And again, not just bc of her skin color."
(I think she's beautiful but...)
