Last night, at the Miss Universe contest in Mexico City, the audience apparently booed when Miss USA was being interviewed as one of the finalists. Perhaps we’ve been too unfair to Mexico? Not spending enough tourist dollars? Too hard on illegal immigration?
It takes guts, of course, to boo a beauty contestant. If Donald Trump, who owns the Miss Universe pageant, had any guts, he would have announced that the event would never be in Mexico again and that bigotry is bigotry, no matter which side of the border you’re on.
