No, it's not "sort of the same thing". Glad I could help you out.

In my world, yes. I’d prefer she shut up and just play. I feel the same about anyone representing the USA in that kind of capacity.

No sympathy for her.

Her tweet:

Quote:
“So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing?” Zhu tweeted. “Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?”
She went on social media and accused the student group of the above. She knows she was being ignorant and inflammatory. We don’t even have to reach her comments inferring that black men don’t have brains. But she’s a “victim.” LOL...bye!

I don't think she's a racist and unless there's something specifically in her contract that prohibits making any kind of political statements I don't think she should have been stripped of her title. That being said, they did her a favor. Before this happened very few people knew who she was and now she is getting a ton of attention. I'm sure she'll land some type of gig out of this with Fox or some other conservative outlet.

Default Kathy Zhu stripped of Miss Michigan title for being a racist !

I read the article and the qoutes more than once, and I saw no racism, only facts.


You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

A state of society where men may not speak their minds cannot long endure.

Okay, maybe with Colin...I'll give you that. Explain how it is different with Megan ? Is she not representing something ?

Anyone citing statistics on race in this category will be getting bogus statistics !!!

Anyone can pull up a list of criminals for a particular crime in Colorado and see !!!

yet sarah jeong can say "Oh man it's kind of sick how much joy I get out of being cruel to old white men" and "Are white people genetically predisposed to burn faster in the sun, thus logically being only fit to live underground like groveling goblins," and still keep her job on the NYT editorial board

I bet if you think about it really hard you might come up with a few ways - specifically around contracts signed, and the clauses therein - their situations are different. Yeah?
