Syracuse-born Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, is the first woman of Indian decent to win the Miss America crown. And because a lot of Americans are just plain stupid, ignorant morans who think Africa is a country and people with brown skin are Arabs (or here in California, “Mexicans”) there has been a twitter-shart of racist comments

Apparently, Pat Robertson felt the need for attention, hence this ignorant comment.
Of course Robertson is the same guy who seconded the late Jerry Falwell when he blamed lgbts for 9/11.

For those who haven’t seen it, the following video is one I made featuring images from my book, How They See Us. If the images upset you, then good. They are supposed to. They serve as a reminder of how far the lgbt community has come and how far we still need to go:

My 8 year old comes home with more accurate sh*t from the playground than this!” And to think, this guy, Mike Frey, a “concerned father and husband,” shared his mind-blowing ignorance with the world as he shared his deep thoughts about why gays and lesbians getting married has something to do to anal sex and AIDS.
