Miss America crowns first winner of Indian descent; racist tweets flow
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- No sooner had the tiara been placed atop her head than a barrage of racist tweets flooded the Internet. "If you're #Miss America you should have to be American," said one. "WHEN WILL A WHITE WOMAN WIN #MISSAMERICA? Ever??!!" screamed another. Nina Davuluri is American. She just happens to be of Indian descent. In fact, she's the first Indian-American to be crowned Miss America.
