[This is like my continually being edited post, because I am constantly adding stuff to the end]
It is sad in a sense that you have to have such ugliness amongst such beauty. It taints the human experience and the progress of humanity. Towards something better than just our base animalistic instincts and desires. Sad, but justice is not an easy concept. Not for us, and not for anyone else. Not even with the sacrifices of Americans in the past for such concepts.
Michelle Malkin provides greater detail on what the ugliness was and still is.
You can see Miss USA’s answer to the final question here.
Now that’s professionalism people. Her evening dress was very very attractive. Glossy and very slick, it lent her a gliding sort of grace. As if water flew over her.
You can see some other things concerning Malkin’s post as well. Miss USA generally looked sad when I saw her. No big smiles, no radiant face. She mouthed “thank you” it seemed when she got the top 15 nomination. Did she expect her unpopularity with the Mexicans to take away even a nomination at the bottom ranks? I respect her ability and her strength. I admire that. The ability to stand up to a crowd and to be expected to perform, under limitations, never truly expressing your feelings unless those feelings are of joy. While the audience gets to do whatever animals do in the sight of grace.
I don’t like people that treat kind hearted folks unjustly. It really really incites the rage, because I don’t even need the meta-Golden Rule to punish them. Simple manners would be appropriate.
This is Malkin’s latest post on the event in question. A sort of summary.
