Well, that escalated quickly.
Folks were super excited that Kára McCullough crowned Miss USA last night. She’s Black and her win gives Washington, D.C. back-to-back wins (the 2016 winner was also from D.C.) She’s also incredibly smart and has been called one of the most intelligent contestants the competition has ever had. McCullough is a chemist for U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and was born in Italy, but raised in Virginia Beack, VA.
Everyone rejoiced….until this happened.
She also went on to weigh in on feminisim. She said that she prefers the term “equalism.” According to the New York Post, McCollough went on to say, “I don’t want to call myself a feminist,” McCullough said. “Women, we are just as equal as men, especially in the workplace.”
The backlash was swift.
