Sadly, we are not truly a nation of equals.... no matter how far we think we've come. I agree it should not matter who won, hard work was put in by all competitors.
There was a similar national controversy (side note--is it a good thing that instances like this receive national attention??) when Hampton University in Hampton, VA crowned a white student as Miss Hampton in, I think, 2008. Full disclosure there was a additional grumbling because she was a part-time student at a satellite campus. But everyone was really up in arms about her ethnicity. It was pretty intersting.
I am not familiar with the step off thing with frats and sororities... but I do not ever agree with double standards on anything... xxxooo
Agreed! Nothing more to say - it was completely unfair.
Where did they find that many girls in one chapter that were THAT coordinated? And I thought we did a rockstar job during Derby Days ;-) I only watched the first 5 minutes... but that was pretty sick! Kudos to those girls for rockin' it.
