I feel for anyone who looks at that woman and says "i dont like her because her skin is dark" because she's hot.

Add it to yet another episode of ignorance shown by (American) social media users.

Remember the Japanese tsunami? :smh .. This incident was probably the worst.

Remember the Boston bombers and a plethora of Americans blamed the Czech Republic? LOLmerica.

Yeah, that happened in Florida a couple years back.

I remember one of my co-workers told me once that one day people will look like me..because it's hard to tell what I am due to mixing through the generations. Lots of mixture in the Caribbean Basin. Lots of ignorance out there. But what do you expect. This country is failing in so many ways lately.

i completely disagree.

winning it as an indian-american is a great point to prove, and hopefully that was a direct part of her motivation.

i think doing a little bollywood to represent her country is awesome, and i that any other american who knows their own roots should applaud her.

and people who use 9/11 as an excuse for bigotry should never forget:

I live here too, and i'm not having an issue, so it's **** the assholes, not **** america, and if you can't not generalize like that, well then **** you.
