First off, it may be a controversy only because some insist on making it so.
Some suggest that Miss USA 2010 may not be an American citizen at all and want to see some sort of proof indicating that she actually is. Others say yes, she is an American, but she is also a Muslim Arab Lebanese whose relatives have ties with terrorists.
If that wasn't enough, now there are some old pictures of her floating around from a "stripper contest" she was involved in a while back.
And oh yeah, even Daniel Pipes chimes in, suggesting that Rima Fakih only won the Miss USA pageant because of Affirmative Action or Positive Discrimination as it is called in some countries, like the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. He then goes on listing other minority beauty contestants, who won pageants in the past, to prove his case.
So what's the big deal really?
Take a wild guess. :::wink wink:::
Yep, you guessed it!
Of course this has nothing to do with race or shady politics, nah uh...she's
just dumb, that's why!
