Colbert on being Miss America while Indian-American (video)

Stephen Colbert weighs in on the Miss America pageant, and the specific “controversy” over the first Indian-American, Nina Davuluri, winning.  A number of people thought it was inappropriate that someone so dark – they of course assumed she was Muslim (she’s not) – should win Miss “America” so close to 9/11.




As I noted, at least Twitter after bashing her, came to her defense.

    are all christians terrorist supremacists or not??

  • Not only are the hicks ignorant of their own history, but anyone who was paying attention in class would know that the Hindus and the Moslems have been very antagonistic since the Moslems invaded India. Mohandas Gandhi may not have approved of the pageant, but that means nothing. Note I didn’t even get into the Reaganomical pablum that all Moslems are terrorists.

    the racists again proved to be a bigot you have to be as dumb as a bag of rocks, my apologies to the rocks.

  • As I noted in the comments in the earlier thread, it’s both fascinating and funny to see just how pig-ignorant the racist xenophobes are.
