2014 Miss America Of Indian Descent!

Mon Sep 16, 2013 7:04 pm

It was just a matter of time before our Indian Sisters made their way to US Beauty Pageants.

Miss Nina Davuluri, 24 yrs old, a prospective doctor, earned the crown last night in Atlantic City, NJ.

Stunning, absolutely Stunning!

The racist/close-minded reaction from some people is sad. Glad to see she is keeping her head high.

The award is well deserved.


Not sure why the press is stealing her day in the spotlight with ignorant tweets by anonymous cowards. No one of prominence is supporting any of this nonsense. There are ignorant, racist tweets everyday by anonymous cowards.
We should focus on her and no one else.

Anyway, I don't exactly follow pageants or anything, but congrats to Miss America.

Isn't there also a Miss USA ?

I don't really like her looks personally, but that happens often with pageants, I don't find most of the candidates very attractive (good enough for my bed, though).

Apparently this pageant's goal is to win scholarships, but I see that as usual most misses don't finish their studies and instead become TV hosts or reality TV stars or whatever.

My only thought would they are trying to bring others down to their level.

Yes there was and it was by the press. They dragged up some older photos she had done with Penthouse magazine and took her crown back.
She went on and had a successful singing career.

She's quite beautiful.

Of course, I'm sure we all know that if she was East Asian-American (e.g. Korean, Japanese, Chinese, etc.) there'd be virtually no racism against her. It's typical of where most of the racism is aimed at these days in the US, and the West in general (basically anyone with dark skin).

Meh. I wouldn't kick her out of bed for farting but she's not that hot.

I was in India 2 weeks ago and met some women that made me weak at the knees. True, they did not have the classic, "Miss Universe" look, but there is a character and light in the Indian people that is quite enchanting. Combine it with the beautiful skin, big brown eyes....wow

Anyway, aren't these beauty pageants pretty much done with?

Crap, here we go about racism in America again. And yet, racism in the US is actually among the mildest in the world. Certainly tamer than our model would see in India.

That a Korean or Japanese might see less in the US than an Indian (debatable) could have something to do with that they are far more attractive in general.

Agreed. From the traveling I have done, there is no doubt the U.S. IMO has the least amount of racism out there.

As for the winner, congrats. I did not see a problem with her winning I only watched the questions part though and I thought she did not even asked the question asked. The only one of the five to give a decent answer IMO was California, thought she should had been the winner.

It is obvious that everyone is upst about racism against this Indian American Miss America winner. Unfortunately, there will always be more than a few idiots who express their racist, backward views in 2013.

However, what most people don't realize is that there is horrible racism and hatred towards dark-skinned people in India itself. This young woman would have NEVER won a pageant in India itself as she would not be considered "fair and "lovely. Furthermore, she wouldn't get anywhere near Bollywood, as you have to be practically Nordic in complexion to be considered.

India is a hypocritical nation on skin color. A self hating, white wannabe hypocritical nation.

It's been easy for Europe to point fingers at everybody else until they actually import a bunch of foreigners themselves, mix it up and find out it isn't that easy.

The problem in the US is, there are some pockets of society, either geographic or demographic, that are significantly more racist than others. However, on the flip side, there are some that are exactly the opposite, celerating diversity and enjoying the multiculturalism and all that it brings.

Balance up these two, and I believe America is not particularly racist when compared with other places. However, people's perspectives are always imprinted more strongly by extremes, and there some real awful redneck, bigotted pockets of the country.

I would encourage people not to tar the whole country with the same brush.

I just spent a week in San Francisco. I would find it hard to name another part of the world more friendly, more accepting of outsiders, more interested in peoples differences, and just out to have a good time.

And yet those "morons" are American. And it seems to be very common American error to mistake Hindus from India with Muslims from the Arab countries. Uniformly, those who make such a mistake also accuse them of being terrorists.

They are neither an aberration or a rare fluke. They are quite common and they show up anywhere that public comment is permitted.

What does India have to do with this ? Isn't the whole point of this thread the fact that she's American ?

Standards of beauty can be seen as superficial, subjective or hypocritical, everywhere. They're also transient, as society evolves, so do those standards. Pretty much every single major society has such cultural hangups - most of east Asia covets fair complexions as much, if not far more so than India. The Koreans in particular, are incredible - going so far as to resort to mass plastic surgery to change the shapes of their eyes, noses and more. The west characterizes the glowing tanned look on a caucasian as beautiful. It's really funny when a tanned white person implies white privilege in front of someone ethnically non-white with a naturally tanned complexion a dew shades darker.

That's a heck of an allegation. It's the sort of allegation that shouldn't be made without very sound evidence.

For those of you saying how she's pretty but you wouldn't bang her, let me remind you:

This is a beauty pageant, not a strip show (even with the swimsuit contest). The trick at a beauty pageant is to look pretty without looking "sexy." The hair, makeup, and dress are all carefully chosen so as to emphasize beauty over sex appeal (and they are two very different things).

If she wanted, she could alter her wardrobe and makeup in such a manner that just about any heterosexual male mouth would hang slack while other parts would be...er... not so slack.   In other words, she chose to dress like a beauty queen because she was in a beauty pageant. If she had chosen to dress and groom like a stripper, she would have lost the pageant, even though she would have looked sexier.

RE: 2014 Miss America Of Indian Descent!

Ok, I usually feel attracted to and tend to end up with women who are darker than myself, especially with black hair (which means starting in southern Europe, Africa (North and subsaharan), the Middle East, South Asia, East Asia and central and South America). This is possibly something left over from my childhood, which I partially spent in Spain and Portugal (where my brother and myself were the only blond kids on the block).
With this girl, I´d like to see her in her normal attire, with her normal expressions (not those exagerrated emotional displays for the camera), with little or no make up and I´d like to talk to her to check if she is not just another dumb bimbo.

But I have to say that in the second picture she looks quite attractive.

As for the complexion thing, it was not that long ago that us European cherished that pale "blue blood" look. Up to the age of industrialisation the hard and dirty jobs were mostly outside in the agricultural society and working class people usually were tanned from being outside in all kinds of weather. Rich people could afford to stay inside, so the badge of upper class was a pale skin as a sign that they didn´t have to do physical work outside.

Fast forward to the 1920s: Society has changed and most hard and dirty working class jobs are now inside factories or mines. The workers live in lightless Victorian slums and are pale due to almost never being in the sunlight.
The rich people though can now afford to travel and to spend their free time outside e.g. on the beach, loafing.
So the badge of status became a tanned skin, especially in winter, to show that one was rich enough to be able to afford to travel somewhere warm when all the plebs were slaving in the factories.

Basically one still sees this distinction in countries with a large, manual work, agricultural sector or countries which have just recently changed from such a status to industrialisation.

Well you did ask for "sound evidence".
You can do through the comments of any given news story, Youtube, Twitter etc and find tons of ignorant, bigoted racist statements by anonymous cowards. How is the Miss America pageant any different? If I was Nina Davuluri, I'd be pissed as hell that the press used an important lifetime event to divert attention to Internet trolls.
Perhaps it's up to the lamestream media to cough up the 'very sound evidence' of such hateful people. So far, not a single person has come forward voicing those bigoted opinions.

Beauty is a matter of opinion. She is pretty to me, sure. But, to me, not as beautiful as, say Vanessa Williams, if we are judging strictly women. There are stunning pics of Sarah Palin. Or Hillary Clinton. Or Bella Abzug. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Ever see that Twilight Zone episode?

She looks good, but come on. There is nothing amazing in those photos.

For those of you saying how she's pretty but you wouldn't bang her, let me remind you:

Actually we (I) said how she's not that pretty but we'd bang her anyway !

It's a bit ironic if you think about it. The New World was discovered in an attempt to locate a new route to India. We're coming full circle folks!

India is a hypocritical nation on skin color. A self hating, white wannabe hypocritical nation.
Want another example? Look at the actress Frieda Pinto.

There is some merit to that. In the past few months I have worked with several Indians (all Gujarati too, oddly enough) and they have all at some level commented on that in various conversations. Many Indian mothers are particularly protective of their children getting "too brown." As a white guy who is about as WHITE as they come (I don't tan, I crisp), that's a rather bizarre concept. You're brown, I can see you're brown, and it doesn't really matter how brown you are, because you're brown. A similar dynamic is found in the black community regarding how black someone is. I don't understand why that dynamic exists in the communities because someone is still brown or black, but it's there.

The problem in the US is, there are some pockets of society, either geographic or demographic, that are significantly more racist than others. However, on the flip side, there are some that are exactly the opposite, celerating diversity and enjoying the multiculturalism and all that it brings.

I'm not sure why you state that's a problem in the US. That's a problem everywhere.
