Miss Michigan Stripped Of Title After ‘Racist’ Tweets Surface

Miss Michigan racist tweets

Miss Michigan Kathy Zhu has been stripped of her title after several ‘racist’ and ‘insensitive’ tweets surfaced.

The 20-year-old shared a picture of an email she received on Friday (July 19) from the pageant removing her from her position.

Zhu, the vice president of UM College Republicans, said organisers took her tweets about hijabs and African-American murder rates out of context and did not give her chance to explain her reasoning behind them.

In the email from state director Laurie DeJack, the 20-year-old former Miss Michigan was told she could no longer participate in pageants or have her name associated with the title in any way.

Zhu was announced as Miss Michigan World America 2019 by the beauty pageant earlier this week, but her title was revoked just one day later. Organisers appear to have deleted the original announcement from a regional Facebook page, instead reposting a list of other winners.

The ‘insensitive’ tweets referenced by the email were targeted at Muslim women and gun violence in the black community. According to screenshots obtained by the Orlando Sentinel, as per CBS News, the first tweet read:

There is a ‘try a hijab on’ booth at my college campus. So you’re telling me that it’s now just a fashion accessory and not a religious thing? Or are you just trying to get women used to being oppressed under Islam?

While the second one reportedly read: ‘Did you know that the majority of black deaths are caused by other blacks? Fix problems within your own community first before blaming others.’ The tweets were sent in 2017 and 2018, but have since been deleted.

In response to the email stripping her of her title, Zhu referred to the organisers as ‘gullible’ before defending her claims and saying her hard work shouldn’t be taken away because of ‘one person’s complaint’.

She went on to say:

I suggest you all fully review what you stand for and what you condemn. Statistics and facts are not always pleasant. It’s disgusting how you would rather lie to the public’s face than be supportive of someone that is trying to make a difference by talking about subjects that no one dares to say.

Zhu, an avid Donald Trump supporter on social media, will no longer go on to represent Michigan in the Miss World America pageant in Las Vegas.

    Gee Kathy, didn’t your leftist professors teach you that political correctness always “trumps” the truth?

    Just because blacks committed 53.3 percent of all murders in 2018 and Muslim women look like refugees from the 7th century and are treated like cattle is no reason to talk about it.

    https://ucr.fbi.gov/crime-in-the-u.s/2018/crime-in-the-u.s.-2018/tables/table-43

    NOTE: the 53.3% is up from 49.7% in 2011.

    JR & JimNorCal –

    The polls in Michigan have been closed for an hour and 40% of the vote has been counted. Isn’t that a larger percentage than Kalifornia has counted from last Tuesday’s (Thursday’s if you’re lurking Joe) election.

    18 – The DNC literally just picks. See Sen Bob Torricelli -> Frank Lautenberg swap (state party in that case but same idea) in October 2002.

    Remember after Hillary’s Sept 11 2016 fall and her ‘bad flu’, the what if talk for a couple days even from D politicos about what-if, back then they were all saying the DNC would swap in someone else, and then fire up the lawsuits in each state related to the situation and cast ballots and ballot name changes. It gets complicated after Sept 1st, as absentee ballots start getting printed and mailed in more and more places, and also start being cast.

    A candidate like no other in US political history.
    * Biden would be the oldest man ever elected president
    * When he sought the presidency in 1988 and 2008, he was considered a joke and never won a single primary
    * A major party candidate never had such little control of his mental facilities
    * Ever remember a presidential candidate becoming as confrontational with voters as Biden, asking them to “step outside,” like an eight year old boy

    Yet, the DNC and their media puppets have taken a candidate that finished 4th in Iowa, 5th in New Hampshire and 2nd in Nevada and converted him into the overwhelming favorite.

    Yet, the media completely has his back. Yesterday CNN’s Chris Cillizza referred to Biden’s outburst in Detroit (which was too big to bury) as “probably a good thing for Biden” and CNN’s John King said “Some People See That as Charming.”

    Joseph Goebbels could learn a thing or two from these guys.

    When I worked at MacGregor in the 1970s (before women’s golf was what it is today), we had a sexy woman golfer on our staff who was considered a knock-out in her day (which was nearing its end when I was at Mac Gregor). Unfortunately back then they didn’t have great sunscreens and she looked old before her time.

    Joe Scarborough has once again proved that there is virtually nothing that the liberal media can’t spin into a positive for one of its own. On today’s Morning Joe, Scarborough claimed that Joe Biden having told a construction worker that he was “full of s—” on gun control proved both Biden’s humanity, and that he was a “fighter.”

    Scarborough’s comment came in response to Mike Barnicle’s assertion that in recent times, Biden is resonating with voters as he demonstrates his “humanity, empathy, stability and experience.”

    drdog reaction sounds similar to Instapundit: Trump sounded subdued.

    “TRUMP’S SPEECH: Good on substance — a laundry list of necessary proposals, followed by a call for unity. A travel ban to/from Europe (except UK) is sweeping, and the payroll tax cut will help a lot of working people. Other moves to reduce the economic shock, as well as efforts at boosting the health response. He’s right that we aren’t in a financial crisis; it’s a public health crisis with financial implications.

    I hope they’ll encourage state governments to make unemployment compensation quickly available to people who aren’t working because of the virus or shutdowns, and to encourage employers to loosen sick-leave policies.

    That said, Trump seemed kinda subdued, at least for Trump. Then again, I would be too.”

    Calling BS on this guy
    When pressed by lawmakers for an estimate of eventual fatalities in the U.S., Fauci said it will be “totally dependent upon how we respond to it.”
    “I can’t give you a number,” he said. “I can’t give you a realistic number until we put into the factor of how we respond. If we’re complacent and don’t do really aggressive containment and mitigation, the number could go way up and be involved in many, many millions.”

    I’ll give you an upper bound: US will have fewer deaths than China.
    Not only did they start first, they mishandled it. Not only did they mishandle it, their medical system is not as advanced as the US.
    China, total cases: 80K and slowing
    China, total deaths: 3,200

    “Many” millions in the US?
    I think not.

One thing I have noticed like clock work though is every time Potus himself talks about the virus in any sort of official\presser\address way the market tanks.

    tbh I really don’t understand the mass market freak out, I get the initial 2k correction (way over due) and maybe another 5-7% on corona panic\fallout, but the markets acting like the world is ending, and it’s not. Sure profits will be down for two or three quarters, but it’s not exactly end of the world as we know it type shattering.

I asked the guy re-stocking bounty paper towels on the DL when was the next shipment of TP (I already have enough I was just curious), he said he didn’t know, said had got some in yesterday and it was gone in 2 hours, said was 8 pallets worth. “People going nuts, stuff is like gold right now”.

    Additionally they setup a newer more prominent ‘wipe station’ near where you pick up the carts (one was always there but I’m the only one I ever noticed use it), I watched ~15 customers come in get carts before I got mine and untangle one for an older woman, 8 people wiped theirs down, bit disappointing.

    -Wallyworld (neighborhood.market edition)
    On the way home I stopped at the mini-wallyworld closer to home just to spot check – same story on the TP and cleaning\wipes isles…everything else was normal, except for bread there…but I think that was just timing as someone was restocking the bread while I was there.

    -Kroger
    Every thing normal, and they had some off brands of TP left, they had a sign that said only 2 TP packages per customer (size didn’t matter) allowed – SMART. Cashier was wearing the typical super cheap plastic gloves, I noted it, but it’s not unusual and varies by cashier (same was true at w-mart mine had gloves the one across from me did not, clearly no company policy).

    Fucking panic is way worse than the disease, especially with JIT distribution. We got all of 31 cases in GA, though nearly all of them are in counties surrounding me. lol

    Oh in other news 3 dead at our base in Taji Iraq from local rocket\mortar attack, 2 US, 1 Brit.

    The Bishops in Rome have issued immediate CLOSURE of all Catholic Churches. Up until today, #Catholics were still able to visit and pray, privately—even if public Masses had been banned.

    Imagine how bad ESPN and the rest of the sports channels will be with no games – just really obnoxious, low-IQ sports commentators yelling over each other 24/7.

    I am very choosy on toilet paper brands. I don’t buy any made by P&G (Charmin) or Georgia-Pacific (AngelSoft – owned by the Kochs).

    Which brings up the immortal question — Citizens use TP to wipe their ass. What do politicians use to cover their ass?

    “Many have been talking about the markets and economic risks apparent in this country and around the world for a long time. I began sounding alarms before 2008, and since that time have attempted to make aware the fact that from an economic standpoint, the markets and the economy have become much worse, and more suspect ever since. After all the manipulation, the Quantitative Easing (QE), and the continued debt growth, it seemed apparent that a massive economic failure was likely in the future. Is that damning future about to come to fruition?

    Do the controlling powers that have created this likely economic disaster understand this, and seek to place blame on this new coronavirus outbreak as the cause of all financial ills to come? Was this new coronavirus (COVID-19) purposely created and released so that central bankers, investment bankers, corporate heads, and government puppets could use it as cover for an imminent economic collapse that has become impossible to contain? This in my opinion is a distinct possibility. Political convenience at this level is rarely accidental.

    With any financial collapse in the wake of a pandemic, real or not, control over world populations is much easier to implement. Once martial law or medical martial law is in place due to panic, all of society is crippled in the sense that individual liberty and power is lost, economic freedom is restricted, and societal controls such as quarantine become reality.

    All monetary policy rules will be non-existent, as scrutiny for these tyrannical measures will be lacking during times of extreme strife. In other words, total control of entire populations becomes possible, and without some sort of mass uprising, there is little that any individual can do in situations like these. As James Corbett so rightly said, this panic will cause the cures to be much worse than the disease. But was that the plan all along?”

    Considering the TP wars going on at Costcos nationwide he might be right. Or a hot TP war would prove him wrong. Just depends. :0

    92- dollar bills, lies, and a compliant media, usually anyway. 😉
    91- I don’t think you’re crazy at all, lots of value out there to pick up.

    As for espn… whatever I mean wasn’t it already a bunch of annoying voices babbling back and forth before this (and not even about sports), I’m sure they can fill the air with anti-trump commentary, or just some re-runs, or deep dives on mlb teams and what things are looking like for the upcoming season etc, or just broadcast some of the games that still happening at other levels. How about replay the 86 world series games instead on what would be opening day and so forth with commentary from some who are still around? All sort of things they ‘could’ do to fill a couple weeks.
