Miss America is an Indian-American?!

Oh no...Miss America is an Indian-American blah blah...
First of all, who really cares? Beauty pageants are ridiculous events anyway focusing (let's be honest) on physical beauty over inner beauty. Why do these women feel the need to qualify themselves to a bunch of people (judges) who really don't care about them? Also, what makes these judges qualified to judge beauty? Isn't beauty in the eye of the beholder? Secondly, there was a huge backlash on twitter about how the winner was not a true American. You want to talk about a "true" American? The "true" Americans are Native Americans (erroneously referred to as "Indians" in this country), but most of them were killed off when our favorite explorer Christopher Columbus came to the "New World". Misinformed, biased, and ignorant people have access to computers too, so we really shouldn't be surprised at anything on twitter anymore...


  1. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but most beholders behold the same thing: (yes, there is an International Journal of Cosmetic Science).

  2. Wow, good find Jeremy! It was definitely an interesting paper. I suppose I should edit my post now...haha. I believe the paper establishes what we have postulated before as "universal" beauty.
