Wow - has Howard Stern been around that long?

I remember when Vanessa Williams won. She was so gorgeous. Still is.

I had never heard of him until his show hit TV.

It's hard to forget when Vanessa won, and even harder to forget the constant news coverage of the "scandal". (Otherwise known as boobies)
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

What were the negative tweets saying? I'm confused...Indians aren't Muslim.

Most of the population estimated between 80-86.5% are Hindu.

There is a reason why people in India convert to Islam, and it isn't a nice reason.

BTW you know you can edit posts if you fingers run away from you before someone quotes you in a reply?
On the plus side, she still won. The biggots are losing.

I hope.
That article on buzzfeed led me to another, which is also depressing:

Is Miss America Too Dark-Skinned To Ever Be Crowned Miss India

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."

LOL Wow.

(I think she's beautiful but...)
