Open thread: Miss Texas for the win

Open thread: Miss Texas for the win

The Miss America pageant took a very unexpected and welcome turn this weekend.

Miss Texas, Morgana Wood, tore into Moron Hitler over his reaction to the Charlottesville Nazi riot. Watch below.

It was fifteen seconds of truth. And, of course, if you didn't notice, Ms. Wood is white.

We say it so often that it loses its power. But the fact is that it is not incumbent on people of color to solve racism. Racism isn't their disease. It's a disease of white America. There need to be millions more Morgana Woods who will not stand by silently when given a platform to decry our society's racist nature.

This is your open thread.
