    Pretty self explanatory, and absolutely horrible.

    I propose that we bulldoze everything in the USA and give the land back to the native Americans.

    Well if you give everyone a voice, you're going to have a bunch of dimwits getting heard.

    I would love to know how different the world would have been if we could go back in time and sink the Mayflower.

    The natives would probably end up still getting shafted by some other group. :(

    The thread title is rather confusing as I was expecting a native America India crowned as Miss USA. Iím very surprised by the conservative reaction from the American public; you would expect a barrage of racial abuse.

    Are some whited being ignorant or are other people just as bad?

    Isn't the US kinda leaning towards being mostly South American, African etc. with whites being the minority now.

    American Indian women you see in the odd TV or film are stunning. I wonder if they are quite rare.

    Miss Delaware should have won; as she is more representative to America and their people.

    Isn't saying that twitter brands someone a terrorist the same equivalent of saying humanity brands her a terrorist? Neither is exactly the case.
  • Deleted user 16 September 2013 17:39:16
    I like how it's "twitter brands her a terrorist" as if it's some gestalt entity wandering around spewing singular opinions.

    Must have recalled some prediction.

    72% is higher than I would have thought,

    I read somewhere that South American populace are growing fast, that they are underpinning the economy to an increasingly large degree.
  • Deleted user 16 September 2013 17:39:56
    Look at me and cubby, thinking similar things. I bet he's also got his legs crossed like I have.

    wiki says:White: those having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa.
    Interesting interpretation.

    Well what do you want it to be? It's such a superficial way to judge the make up anyway.

    Is it the same entity that leaves awful youtube comments? It's very uncouth.

    Surely calling her 'Indian-American' doesn't help matters? She's just plain American, with a cultural background that differs to others that live in her country. How many times to you see people referred to as Scottish-American or Irish-American or German-American, for example?

    It's a cultural byproduct of the African american empowerment drive. As a demographic I think they wanted to embrace their heritage.
