|Miss New York wins Miss America 2014|
If you are unaware, I hate to be a spoiler, but as you're certain to find out in the links below, Miss New York Nina Davuluri was crowned Miss America 2014. She did an amazing performance of a Bollywood/Fusion dance routine, that I think secured the win for her. Beside having a beautiful face and gorgeous figure, there was little doubt that she would be a top contender.
This marks the second year in a row that Miss New York took the crown; but unfortunately, some were upset of Nina Davuluri's ethnicity. Miss New York Nina Davuluri is the first woman of Indian descent to win the title and her win prompted some disconcerting comments from people who have shallow views and deeper prejudices.
Some people made the ridiculous error of thinking that if Miss Davuluri is Indian then she must be a Muslim terrorist.
How absurd is that?
Anyway, despite all idiotic notions aside, the Miss America 2014 pageant was very entertaining, featured women not usually seen in beauty pageants and was one of the best beauty pageant competitions in ages.
