Miss America winner

Reader comment on item: Affirmative Action in Beauty Contests?

Submitted by Erika Edwards (United States), May 18, 2010 at 15:52

What does the muslim faith have to do with Miss America? Is it a requirement to be Christian? Are there no other religions allowed? I am a Christian and born in the US. I would not want to live anywhere else. But this woman is a legal immigrant. Has she expressed any unamerican feelings? Does she condemn the United States policies? I see a lot of unhappy bigots making these comments. How many other races are represented? is this an equality of race or a representative of American values? Who cares if so many people of one religion or another have won contests? How petty can people be? There are serious issues to deal with in our times. Certainly, this person can be recalled if she does not fulfill the duties of Miss America in an appropriate way. Give her a chance.
