Another form of affirmative action for Muslims
Regarding the election last evening of Rima Fakih as Miss USA, Daniel Pipes says that the frequency of Muslims winning beauty contests makes him suspect affirmative action. He cites several examples of recent Muslim beauty queens, all of whom I would describe as moderately attractive at best (though Pipes politely says they are “all attractive”), but then he finds an example that unambiguously, and laughably, proves his point. Meet Miss A&T at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University:
Note: a reader points out that North Carolina A&T is an all-black (or rather mostly black) school. That doesn’t change the fact of (in this case black) affirmative action in behalf of a beauty “contestant” in absurdly alien garb, with the top of her head completely covered. What’s next—a beauty queen with her face completely covered?

There was another interesting occurrence during the Miss USA pageant. One of the judges was Latino actor Oscar Nunez, from the sitcom “The Office.” He asked Miss Oklahoma what she thought of the new Arizona immigration law. Before he even finished the question, the live audience began booing him. They rightly viewed this as yet another attempt by a judge with a liberal agenda to sandbag a blonde white girl, so people are starting to wake up to the liberals’ game. Miss Oklahoma responded in favor of the law, and was voted first runner up. I don’t think it cost her the title, though, because the fix was surely already in to select the first Muslim Miss USA.
