Nina Davuluri, Miss New York, was crowned the winner of the 2014 Miss America Pageant. She is the first contestant of Indian descent to have been crowned the title. When her win was announced, Twitter immediately exploded with hateful tweets, calling her a foreigner.

An Arab.

Some were even offended she was crowned so close the anniversary of 9/11...

...and joked about her having possible ties to a terrosist group like al-Qaeda.

And some were just outright racist.

It really goes to show how much the United States hasn't grown as a country.

But what does Miss America have to say about all of this?

You go girl! We think this is exactly what America needs. Even with an African-American president, society is still having issues with racial equality.
