5. Miss America. More like Miss India Hyphen America, am I right? Well, I'm right if you ask thousands of racist Twitter users, who freaked out after Miss New York, Nina Davuluri, was declared Miss America last night. In a marked contrast to previous years, viewers themselves were the most ridiculously outdated and horrifying part of the pageant as they berated Miss Davuluri for her Indian heritage. The hilarious sexism of the competition faded into the background, and viewers made it clear that if we were going to pick a prettiest, skinniest, purest woman in America, she should also be blonde or at least be able to trace her background back to the Mayflower.
