Miss District of Columbia, Kara McCullough, was crowned the winner of the Miss USA pageant on Sunday night.
This is the second year in a row that Miss D.C. has won the title. And Some people aren’t exactly celebrating.
McCullough is the daughter of a Marine and works as a scientist for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission. McCullough is a beautiful intelligent young African American woman. Just one thing she didn’t answer questions on healthcare and feminism the way Liberals needed or wanted her to answer.
When asked whether she believed healthcare to be a right or a privilege, McCullough explained that she believed it to be a privilege, and that people should have jobs. She said “As a government employee, I am granted healthcare. And I see firsthand that for one to have healthcare, you need to have jobs,” she said. “So therefore, we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we’re given the opportunities to have healthcare as well as jobs to all the American citizens worldwide.”
The final question to McCullough asked if she considers herself a feminist. One of the interviewers spoke for her as McCullough laughed, saying, “Yes you do, absolutely you do.” But McCullough did not agree.
“So as a woman scientist in the government, I’ve liked to lately transpose the word feminism to equalism,” McCullough said.
“I try not to consider myself this die-hard, ‘I don’t really care about men,’” she added. “But one thing I want to say, women, we are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace. Firsthand, I’ve witnessed the impact women have in leadership in the medical sciences as well as just in the office environment.”
Nope, that’s not what some people wanted to hear. Whoa! What did she say?!
