Default Indian winner of Miss America faces abuse, labelled as 'terrorist'

Not really a follower of beauty contests, but this has been in the news.
I'd like to think the people quoted below were just being 'ironic'... but you know what? They probably weren't and probably don't know the meaning of the word. You have to laugh at some of this, really.

Miss America Faces Abuse, labeled as Terrorist on Twitter over Indian Descent – HackRead – Latest Cyber Crime – Information Security – Hacking News

If they swap, I may become a Royalist.

They say American schools are way behind in numeracy. Clearly, they aren't too hot at geography and R.E. either.

No disrespect to the more informed folks over there.

Is it just teenagers though irina??

i know lots of them love trolling and winding people up.

But there are lots of americans that think of america as a 'white' country. Look at the tea-baggers. How many of them do you think are happy to have a brown-skinned 'miss america' ??

by teenagers I meant actual teenagers and people whose mental and emotional abilities stalled at the "teenager" level. Sometimes those people are referred to as "rednecks", but really they are just... uninformed.
