Jon Stewart’s Aasif Mandvi on the Indian-American Miss America “controversy”

I’d written earlier about racists on Twitter freaking out over America’s first Indian-American (aka India, not Native-American) Miss America.

Well, Aasif Mandvi, my favorite on Jon Stewart (perhaps even more so than Samantha Bee, who I also adore), weighs in about the Indian-American takeover.  I’d posted Stephen Colbert’s response earlier.

Aasif Mandvi:

“You took this country away from the Indians, and now a different group of Indians is taking it back.”
