Dark skinned youngsters of Hindu ancestry (Asian Indian) keep winning national spelling bees. Nobody’s really upset about it. The kids come from elite, highly educated, wealthy families and they work at their spelling skills. More power to them. If American white youngsters were not so distracted by phones, video games, and other time wasters, they could win a few spelling bees too.
But because a few white adult Americans have tweeted or twerped or whatever on idiot social media sites, suddenly America is full of hate and ugliness. What do the tweets say? Something like, “I wish an American kid could win for once.”
Yep, that’s real hate, isn’t it? Pulling for your clan to win a spelling bee.
Regular readers who go back with this site know that I like the Hindus as the Hindu doctors saved my father’s life in Bombay many years ago. They should not be above criticism, but I’ve never really seen an anti-white Hindu. Maybe it’s because of their caste system back home. Although I like the Hindus, I too would like to see an American kid who reminds me of me as a boy win one of these contests. I guess that makes me a racist a**hole. Or maybe just normal!
Does the idiot who wrote the story below think the Hindus aren’t pulling for one of their own to win? The bigger fool he.
Here’s the biased, anti-white story on Yahoo that’s probably intended to stir up the Hindus into the same anti-white militancy that blacks and many Mexicans have fallen into, as well as make whites feel guilty.
Racist trolling on social media is casting an ugly pall over, of all things, the world’s foremost spelling bee.
For seven years in a row, and for 11 of the past 15 years, the $30,000 Scripps National Spelling Bee championship has been won by American youngsters of Indian heritage.
Chances are as good as ever that another one will follow suit at this year’s finals Thursday at the Gaylord National convention resort by the Potomac River outside Washington.
They make up one in five of the 285 spellers, aged nine through 15, from all 50 states and seven foreign countries, who ran a gauntlet of local and regional contests to qualify for the big event.
One of them, Vanya Shivashankar, 13, who lives in Kansas, is back for a fifth time — inspired no doubt by her sister Kavya, the 2009 champion.
Last year ended in a tie between Sriran Hathwar of upstate New York and Ansun Sujoe from Texas after they failed to knock each other out after five rounds.
Their winning words, respectively, were “stichomythia” and “feuilleton.”
But on social media, the reaction from some of the nearly one million people viewing the finals live on cable television veered towards the xenophobic.
“One year I wish an American kid could win,” read one of several dubious Twitter posts curated on Storify.com by tech journalist Jeff Chu.
