Hi Meltingpot Readers,
Today I wrote a thought piece on the Columbia Journalism Review’s website. I was inspired to write after seeing all of the reporting on the racist tweets about the new Miss America. In case you’re not into beauty pageants, the new Miss America is of Indian descent and when she was crowned back on September 15, some morons on Twitter had some pretty nasty things to say. And of course those nasty tweets made the news. Why? Because they represent the majority of American thought? Or because it would get people talking? You be the judge.
Check out my story if you feel so inclined and let me know what you think. And by the way, I think the new Miss America is lovely.
