In a particularly dumb attempt to sell her MAGA crudentials, beauty contestant and Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu was eventually stripped of her title for openly racist tweets.
https://www.news.com.au/finance/work/ca ... 4a5308e8cd

In a Twitter post on Thursday, Zhu said she had been stripped of her Miss Michigan title “due to my refusal to try on a hijab in 2018, my tweet about black on black gun violence, and ‘insensitive’ statistical tweets”.
One of the earlier tweets in question said, “Did you know the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.”

Honestly what does she expect?

Who knew an Asian could be a white supremacist.

You've never heard of racist Asians hating black people?

No, implying that a community of certain people can all be lumped together and their grievances dismissed for the actions of individuals is what's racist.

Unless they are all being lumped together as ignorant white supremacist deplorables who commit the most terrorism against the US.

What did she say that is racist? Did you miss that bit out?

If someone says the majority of white deaths are caused by other whites, that is perfectly acceptable.

If someone says the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks, that is completely unacceptable and racist.

You should read for context. The statement is not said in isolation. It's said in a particular context. What is that context?

I think Ezra is ignoring the context behind the contestant organisers removing her title.

There's a photo of her wearing a Trump MAGA cap at the University of Michigan which probably also unsettling the other beauty contestants and judges.

It's a particularly dumb thing she did because marginalising people who are already marginalized is not perceived as "beautiful" in a beauty contest. Like that Trump supporting bikini model killing endangered animals and standing over the carcass (that didn't go so well for her either).

I will give her some benefit of doubt as her cultural intelligence of how things are done in America must be poor, she thinks by "aping" the POTUS it will win her popularity. That's glaringly obvious the type of values Trump is trickling down to new Americans.

Quite sad really...

So basically one is not allowed to be a Trump supporter or wear a cap that says "make america great again" and should be disqualified or fired for it etc.

What you need to understand is that silicone valley has decided supporting Trump is racist and they are trying to program people to make sure he doesn't win again as exposed in the documentary. This is all very sinister and liberals will just make things even worse cause they never learn anything and just double down every single time.

Obviously wearing a MAGA cap in a beauty contest is not illegal but it hardly inspires confidence that the person has a brain
