Last night, Nina Davuluri (Miss New York 2013) was crowned Miss America 2014. Ms. Davuluri is of Indian descent, ran on a “diversity” platform, and apparently performed a Bollywood-like dance for her talent. I have to admit that I didn’t watch the pageant. However, the pervasive backlash that arose after her crowning caused me to take note.
