In the cyber-world, the judges' decision was greeted with racist tweets and blogs. Some called her a terrorist, and "an Arab impostor". But faced with intense criticism, many Twitter users withdrew their comments and apologised.
To some, it seems choosing a brown-skinned Miss America poses a challenge to the US concept of beauty. I think Davuluri is an inspiration to young girls across the country. She showed that beauty is no longer confined to a fixed class or type of person.
Congratulations, Miss America!
