You call me a terrorist,

Mon, 09/30/2013 - 20:50 -- megrasa

You call me a terrorist,

But I'm not the one

Scaring others. I don't

Threaten my country, or

Its citizens. You're the one

Doing that. I'm as American

As you are, but I appreciate it more.

You're a white racist, and I'm

A brown girl who is more

Beautiful than you. Sorry to say,

But not every brown person

Is the same. So next time,

When you call an Indian girl

A terrorist, or another

Slur, remember, not only

Am I more beautiful than

You, I am more accepting

And more American. After all,

I am Miss America.
