Rima Fakih's beauty pageant sash declares that she is Miss USA, but journalists want to find other labels for her.
Questions about Fakih's ethnic and religious identity have been nearly as frequent as questions about photos of her dancing against a stripper's pole.
I understand that mainstream America still does not believe that there could possibly be an arab muslim who was wasn't *completely* hell-bent on destroying our Nation, but isn't it a bit silly that we refer to her as an Arab-American more than an American?
Honestly, I can't find any information on Kristen Dalton (Miss USA 2009) and her ethnicity. She's from Wilmington, North Carolina... that's a grand population of seagulls there...
Isn't it a bit stupid that we consider it okay to question the ethnicity and cultural heritage of Rima Fakih and not Kristen Dalton?
I mean we are sacrificing time to ask this peripheral questions instead of asking the important questions... like "Pole Dancing?!? Video?"
