I'm sitting here on this fine Wednesday morning trying to figure out who is shocked and outraged the most, Muslims or Indians.
It used to be the Muslims hand down, but lately our Native friends have given them a run for their money with all sorts of stupid demands and conditions on things they consider to be a part of their heritage.
First it was that name thing where calling a team the 'Cleveland Indians' or 'Atlanta Braves,' or 'Washington Redskins,' was no longer cool ...., but now this moral outrage has taken on whole new level with a bunch of bitching from Natives during the Miss Universe event in Vegas last week.
Perhaps we should give you the whole story: Last August, Ashley Callingbull, a 25-year-old from Alberta's Enoch Cree Nation, won the Mrs. Universe contest.
Callingbull said she hoped her win would be a blow to stereotypes about aboriginal contestants and encourage other First Nations women to participate in contests.
"When she saw this 'costume,' she was angered."
No one complained about that!!!!
“We were devastated,” Mahmood added to ITV. “We’d planned this trip for two months, the kids were excited, and all of a sudden some person just comes and says ‘you’re not allowed to board the plane’, with no explanation.”
The Washington Post notes that it is unclear whether any members of the family were on a no-fly list, or whether all 11 were British citizens. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security did not respond to the Post’s or the Guardian’s requests for comment.
