Muslim Miss America – Who cares?

Now I haven’t done a lot of history on the Miss America Pageant, and for that matter, I don’t plan to.  About the most I know out of the whole thing is that beautiful women who are sometimes half-naked parade around stage showing off their best assets, while men watch from home and get…well, you know what they get.

Anyway, about the most that I know from this thing is Miss Congeniality, that’s it.  And I know that there most certainly people out there who are saying, “oh no, we have a muslim Miss America!”  Two words: who cares?  It’s not like they steer government policy and have such an amazing power that they can sway public opinion.

“God, feed the poor and bring peace to all mankind.  How’s that?”

“Great.  If you want to be Miss America.”  (Taken from the movie Bruce Almighty).

My point is, is that the Miss America Pageant is so significant to those like Donal Trump, and yet so insignificant to those like us that in a month when the dust settles, no one will remember her name.  Much more to the fact that no one will remember she is Muslim.

Let her enjoy her day in sun.  All you fellas at home, take care of that problem.

With two U.S. flags in front of the stage inside a Dearborn restaurant, Arab Americans cheered, danced, and sang into the night Sunday for Rima Fakih of Dearborn — crowned Miss USA in Las Vegas.

“This is unbelievable,” Rami Haddad, 26, of Livonia said Sunday night after the pageant. “It’s a dream come true. I can’t express my feelings.”

Fakih, of Lebanese descent, went into the pageant as Miss Michigan. She is thought to be the first Arab American and Muslim to become Miss USA….

During the interview portion, Fakih was asked whether she thought birth control should be paid for by health insurance, and she said she thought it should because it’s costly.

    the whole idea of a “beauty” contest is as bad as someone being racist.. get it? if you are not pretty or talented enough, you don’t make it. So next time someone is not “white” enough or “black”enough or “tan” enough don’t go rediculing them, cause this is what this is all about. If anyone with a brain actually thinks about what it is would sit and think for at least 2 seconds and say “what in the hell is this all about, how f ing stupid”. Now these women mostly have sordid pasts stripping, prostittuting, etc. if they didn’t they wouldn’t be strutting their asses all over the place showing themselves. Let’s face it they ain’t what they used to be. women in the public eye today are definately not what I would ever want my kids to be, especially when they are popping kids out like taking a crap, without a Daddy any consideration of that child not having a father, and not giving a damn. Muslin or not who gives a damn they are all one in the same.. which is “not worth a shit”
