Posted on 10/16/2009 9:43:26 PM PDT by Senator Goldwater
The "Homecoming Queen" at a traditionally black US university has sent a letter to President Barack Obama, complaining that her win had been questioned on campus because she is white.
"It would be much easier to say that possibly some were not accepting of the news because I wasn't the most qualified contestant; however, the true reason for the disapproval was because of the color of my skin. I am not African American," the nursing student wrote to the president.
She asked the president for help, suggesting that he visit Hampton University to convince students to "stop focusing so much on the color of my skin and doubting my abilities to represent, but rather be proud of the changes our nation is making towards accepting diversity.
"I am hoping that you can assist me in opening some closed minds," Churchill said.
That brought a raft of reactions, including from students at Hampton University who said race had nothing to do with their disgruntlement at Churchill's election.

Strike up the band.
Sounds like a staged event for Obama
Poor girl. Bought in to the “diversity” white guilt so much that now she has to apologize.
Blacks can be racist because they were once slaves in this country. Sarc.
One thing that continues to bug me is all the “security” commercials... WHY is the perpetrator always WHITE?? Isn't this FALSE stereotyping??
Even white people are applying for race cards. Welcome to Obama’s post-racial America.
This is a good example of the law of unintended consequences. It’s also a great example of the principle of reciprocity in action. When the race card frequently gets played without strong justification, stuff like this is what will begin to happen.
At least she made it to college before realizing that the only accepted form of racism is black racism.
They should stop while they are ahead. The more they try to explain why they think she is unfit, the more they sound like it IS about her skin color. jmo
I think its because black women resent that black men often prefer the white women and that is why there is disapproval of the white woman winning the beauty queen contest.
Glad someone else picked up on this.
An intruder is always portrayed looking like Robert Wagner or someone like that, never some ghetto-creep or gang member from South Central.
Besides that, somebody obviously voter for her, enough to win.
Ah, is that even a word? But you get the idea.
not just ‘security’ type comm. damn near every comm. where one person is depicted to look like a stupid damn gomer idiot, it is the white male being portrayed as such and the black as the knowing smart person schooling whitey. those commercials are legion now. I keep a boycott list of those advertisers. the fact that so many such comm. are aired with zero out cry or offense just shows how well the MSM’s campaign to put down the white race has succeeded.
She is certainly beautiful, however as I under stand it
she is Hawaiian which while makeing her American doesn’t
necessarily make her “white” what ever that is.
Congratulations to the students at Hampton who elected a white woman. I have often thought that blacks would eventually turn out to be extremely fair in positions of power, because they suffered injustice and inequality for so long. That they would understand prejudice on a deep level and reject identity politics. Unfortunately, our president often sounds as if he is speaking to his black constituents only. These young people, however, are proving my hopes not unfounded.
Well, someone voted for her. Probably all the guys on campus.
And the complaining?
Probably by all the ladies on campus.
Snarkiness and all that.
Great opportunity for the Nobelist to earn his prize!
I've lost count. We should start an FR thread about it. Find out who these ad agencies are, and who runs them.
You nailed it.
