Racists tweet about new Miss America, Nina Davuluri  

History was made Sunday after Ninan Davulri of Syracuse, N.Y., became the first Indian-American woman to win Miss America. Davulri, 23, took home the coveted crown and the $50,000 scholarship, beating out Miss California, Miss Oklahoma, Miss Florida and Miss Minnesota for the top spot.

The beauty performed a Bollywood fusion dance before being asked by Carla Hall about Julie Chen’s decision to have plastic surgery to make her eyes less Asian.

“I don’t agree with plastic surgery, however, I can understand that from a standpoint. More importantly, I’ve always viewed Miss America as the girl next door. Miss America is always evolving, I wouldn’t want to change someone’s looks. Be confident in who you are,” said Davulri.

While the majority of people were satisfied with the judges’ decision to crown the Asian-American beauty as the winner, a select few racists showed their true colors on Twitter.

By contrast a few more intelligent people jumped to Miss America’s defense and schooled the ignorant on their comments.

    What’s the problem with you haters? There’s always a few of you voicing your opinion about what you think isn’t right when a person of color unanimously is voted to stand out front for the world to see for a good cause. Do you realize “no body cares about what you think anymore?” No longer are we a world focused on what small minded people like you want us to be. Put on your “DUNCE CAPS” and go sit in the corner facing the chalk board. This world doesn’t need your permission to do anything. It’s moving on without you.
