I think it was her support for Trump along with the tweets that did her in. The tweets by themselves were a nothing burger. But when you support an open racist in power and you tweet anything remotely having to do with race you're going to face some potential backlash from some ppl.

I’ll make a racist statement. I bet she is smarter than anyone who is offended by her ideas.

She could have won the "Miss not willing to wear a symbol of female oppression" title

Nice Benelli. I am guessing it isn't hers but she looks good holding it!

Asians are now considered “white”, as they work hard, value education, and don’t seek victimhood.

Liberalism is the totalitarian realization of “1984”. Truth cannot be spoken, as it is deemed “offensive”.

I’m betting if she stood up for the rights of women nothing would have been said.

Here is my take on this and I want to unpack her situation. First off is that I want to say is this. If you are minority like a gay persons, a black person, or an Asian, and you have wrong think ideas. The Sjw/intersectional mobs that control academia, journalism, entertainment, media, publishing and social media, will come after you and hunt you down faster than hunting down a white supremacist. The white person who has wrong think will survive another day, but a minority with wrong think, good luck finding a job. The Sjw mob will quickly condemn, excommunicate or purge a minority with wrong think ideas, even if a minority or protected group said something wrong years ago.

As I unpack this. The woman was in her right to express her views and her opinion and what she wants as a woman. She is free to do so. Speaking about black people, even as a minority myself and a POC, I can not speak for black people or on behalf due to the fact that I'm not a black American even though I am black. I don't have that privilege. On the left only black folks can speak about the realities of black folks either regardless of a black persons political thoughts or affiliation. One thing I don't understand is the hijab. I understand that the beauty pageant wants to represent diversity due to Michigan having a high number of Muslim Americans. The big problem with the left is that even though Zhu would wear or a dorne an hijab. The sjw mob will call out the beauty pageant and Zhu for cultural appropriation. And thus will be forced to loose her crown eventually by the request of SJW mob. Either way, refusing her accepting to wear an hijab, the model would have been screwed any way.

Seems to me that you're the one obsessed with race. And you're not part of 'The left' either.
