    High time that brown women become the beauty norm and racism become a thing of the past..
    The browning of America – by 2020 the USA – a country of immigrant that is proud of its mixed cultural heritage will have more brown people that white ones – Hispanic, native American, African American of course, Carribean Asia-Pacific .. USA can teach the racists of the world a thing or two..
    A country of immigrants with Native Americans / Indians as they one were called on reservations..
    She is brown and beautiful, from SOUTH INDIA – Andra Pradesh – and can teach white skin – mad South Asia a thing or too.
    We need creams to get browner, fair and lovely should be put in the DUSTBIN! BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL!

      Dead on Dude, Sri Lanka and South Asia needs a Black is BEAUTIFUL advertizing campaign!
      Miss USA can teach the wanna-be white bollywood lasses including Ash and Susmita Sen a thing or two.
      South Indian women (and Sri Lanka is South India- like it or not!) need to be the beauty norm in South Asia..
      Time to create a bonfire with all the skin-whitening products, in the supermarket shelves. .They are full of DEADLY chemicals and hazardous to health and well being..
      The craze to be white skinned is also causing higher levels of Multiple Sclerosis which is indicated for Vitamin D deficiency- because of SUNLIGHT (VITAMIN D DEPRIVATION.) Silly women who are told that they will get “dark” if they go in the sun!
      The “fair and lovely: advertizing should be stopped (like imported milk powder in lieu of fresh milk advertising) should also be stopped. Back to mother nature is the way forward for DEVELOPMENT!

          Zami,

          Thanks. Here is more.

          https://www.change.org/en-IN/petitions/fair-and-handsome-and-shah-rukh-khan-take-down-discriminatory-ad-lead-the-change-disbcampaign

          “Fair and Handsome” and Shah Rukh Khan: We don’t want ZYADA (more); we’ve had ENOUGH of fairness products and “unfair” advertising. #disbcampaign #darkisbeautiful

          In the new “Fair and Handsome” ad, Shah Rukh Khan tosses a tube of fairness cream to a young fan. In the next scene, the boy’s skin grows whiter, his smile brightens and his hopes rise. The message: Fair skin is a prerequisite for success.

          Such irresponsible advertising propagates discrimination among men, women— and even children.

          Actress Nandita Das has observed, “Now the insecurities of men are also surfacing with equal number of fairness products for them. Such pressure and so little public debate around it!”

          Now is the time to let “Fair and Handsome” and brand ambassador Shah Rukh Khan know that our country is ready to shed age-old biases and let every person feel comfortable in their own skin.

        By the way Aishwarya Rai is South Indian (Tulu speaking from Karnataka). There are some fair South Indian women as well. Sushmita Sen is Bengali and Bengal has dark skinned women as well.

        ahahaha. real funny. When did Sri Lanka become a part of South India? However I do agree with the rest of your comment. I have seen so many beautiful brown girls from South Asia and have had the opportunity to be friends with some of them too.

      Well said. US and Canada (North America) is a melting pot for all races in the world. Those US bashers and hypocrites (Politicos) in Sri Lanka have no clue or trying to deceive the Sri Lankan voters about the freedom, human rights, religious freedom and democracy people enjoy in these predominantly Christian countries. One has to look at the number of Buddhist Temples (Sri Lankan,Thai,Tibetan, Chinese and Japanese), Hindu Temples and Mosques scattered all over North America to understand the true meaning of freedom and democracy.

    This serves as a lesson to the Uruwansas, Balu senas, Uru meeyas, Hela wansas, Ravana Ballas who do not believe in unity and diversity. All these headless uneducated, sex starved balusenas want sri lanka to be just Sinhala Buddhists without brains. Genuine Buddhists are few and far between and they are real human beings with hearts of gold and we find such true Buddhists living in Colombo and the villages. Many true genuine Buddhists are so fed up with the various balusenas rearing their ugly heads to rape, massacre, maime, destroy other religious values that they are naturally converting to other religions.

      Sumana Rajasinghe,

      Excellent comment. We all need to be very happy and congratulate this young Indian American lady, the new Miss America, who is intelligent is such as asset to America and promoting diversity, the reality of the world.

      If you listen, she is promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, needed by a modern state for progress and economic survival.

      Now compare that to what the religious nuts, Mullahs, Ulama, Monks, etc who want maintain their hegemony over the people are doing?

      1. No Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. All you need is the Quran, memorized, and the Pali Gathas memorized so that they can chant all day long.

      See what happened to Islamic Science when the religion took over or was promoted over Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

      The Erosion of Progress by Religions

      Neil deGrasse Tyson, an American astrophysicist and Director of the Hayden Planetarium, discusses how Islamic fundamentalist destroyed the enlightenment era of the Middle East and why we should be concerned today.

      How many scientist and engineers did they the religious nuts make? ZERO, BINDU/

      Many of those Uruwamsas, Balu Senas and their Balu followers do not follow the Buddhism as taught by Buddha in the Tipitaka. They are following, Maras, and the racism, that is opposite to diversity.

      The current President, Mahinda, the Coward, the Baya Gulla, Rajapaksa is allowing the idiots to run rampant and the >Monks” run Amok.

      I agree entirely with Sumana. It is in our interest to get closer to India. We have so much common with them. In my several visits I find they are very friendly to us. These Booruwansas and the lot are
      trouble-makers who get a living keeping other people at their throats.
      Take away their anti-Indian rhetoric and these uneducated rascals have nothing to offer the public.

      Well said Sumana Ranasinghe,

      Never trust these so called Medamulana wearing white sarong Wolves talking Lamb Bast…ds. Never trust even a blind cat from that area.

      Same with the Yellow robe Ganayas. The worst racist born 1983 desha premi Kada Kadapan crook liars in the world. The crooks ruined our country ever since we got Independence. Only deserve to clean toilets in Middle East.

      That’s why Sir.John said SWRD Banda not to unleash these crazy dogs he tied. But the buffalo Banda unleashed them and paid the ultimate price.

      Now the monkey given 18 Amendment hand grenade is doing the same.

      Soon the Kallathoni community will teach the Buffalo monkeys a lesson.

      LOL….. or like boiled shrimps…

      on a side note

      interesting to note Indians are claiming her as an Indian..ask her, she’d tell u she is AMERICAN without batting an eye lid… coz she was born in USA… and not in India… though she has Indian roots…. Some people ACQUIRE citizenship.. namely Gotabaya,Chamal and the likes…. She is a NATIVE, as in born in the country and is a citizen thus….

      ditto…

      Women have been used as sex objects….mostly by capitalists. Why do u have to have a semi naked woman to sell a car or even a box of chocolates….? Most women wont care of throwing away their clothes for a few minutes of fame… or $$$$…. How many of the MEN would want their daughters, sisters, mothers to be semi naked in front of a heap of sex craving vultures?

    She is not Indian, she is an American just as much as I am…. She comes from Syracuse. Why people are making hay about her Indian heritage is beyond me. She is a very pretty lady and will represent the US well as Miss America.

      Wyatt,

      “She is not Indian, she is an American just as much as I am”

      I though she was African, as all of us are.

      The scientific proof is given below.

      Since its launch in 2005, National Geographic’s Genographic Project has used advanced DNA analysis and worked with indigenous communities to help answer fundamental questions about where humans originated and how we came to populate the Earth.

    This is against the teachings of Islam.

    Ayisha was only 9 years old when the Messenger of God (PBUH) married her.

      When asked, an ardent Muslim tells me that there is nothing wrong PBUH Muhammad marrying Ayisha at 9, because she has grown up to be a woman by 9 and as God said, the duty of women is to bore as many children as they could. Today following their PBUH Muhammad many an old Arab sods go to India, Pakistan and Bangladesh to buy 9 year olds cheep.

    There are many prettier girls in Sri Lanka than this Indian-American Miss America. This is a “fix” to make dum witted Indians to feel good about US, and push them along their “Strategic Partnership”. While they celebrate this “crowning” the “Vultures” will be busy selling dum witted Indians billions worth of obsolete weaponry and, useless “free trade” deals.
    Don’t put our girls through these obscene parades which ridicule women and feminity.

    One needs to have beautiful eyes, to see and understand beauty, it those with beautiful eyes that are able to say something positively good about another human being irrelevant of caste creed religion or culture. These people see good things materializing all the time.

    Those who are so negative must be very sad people with so much despair in the lives, with narrow stereo typed mindsets these people will never have anything good to say even about themselves. All the ever see the negative side of others they sure must be very miserable – Suggest they listen to this song “Strange and Beautiful”…
