  • They aren't "claims" the pageant is rooted in KKK history. A simple google search shows that. It's also the fact that Ellie has wealthy family members who are high up in this association and she "magically" becomes the princess. Please do better research.

  • The bottom line is, If anyone claims America is the greatest country, they are participating in a racist "pageant"...but guess what...EVERY white person is in the racist pageant, unless they are ACTIVELY AND VOCALLY REJECTING RACISM...and the thing that activists know, is that we're ALL PARTICIPATING IN A RACIST PAGEANT, BECAUSE HUMANS ARE RACIST ASSHOLES...even the best intentioned people (like myself) at some point, have to admit that we are often blind to our ingrained, inherited, inhumane racist behaviors. We mindlessly do our thing with zero self-awareness in terms of how things affect people who look or believe differently...the same way men can't see what pricks they are to women every day...even women they love. I'm pretty sure all delusions of superiority if traced to a source, would find themselves in the presence of fragile, ignorant, jealous, narcissistic MEN...and the women who prefer not to do their own thinking...or just believe they are as worthless as men have always treated them.

I'm tired of constantly seeing these ridiculous conversations. I'm sure it would be better served focusing on what should be happening now and in the future, and what to do to move forward.

White people's are okay with black kids and black people as a whole suffering the highest consequence for their actions no matter what the actions are but. When white the excuses are the person was either too young or too old, so the offended should just get over it, forgive and forget, it's no big deal, it's 400 years ago, move on she apologized. Lol.*

You never EVER capitulate to these people in these kinds of situations because as soon as you admit "wrong doing", that is when they really move in for the kill. All she had to say was " I didn't know and had I known I wouldn't have participated". Now that she has through an apology admitted doing something wrong they will tear her to shreds. Apologizing when you've done nothing has never ever worked out for celebs. Her agent, publicist or whatever should have wised her up

Just like the bachelorette who went to a 1850-1880 girl dress themed college dance. No need to apologize for wearing a civil war era period woman’s dress which are quite beautiful. Not like either of these women joined a racists oriented event at the time they were there. It would be like telling other races you can’t dye your hair a certain color because it’s appropriation

  • Another cancel culture apology. Weak. She has nothing to apologize for. I don't see Biden or Hillary apologize for being friends with KKK people in their past. This is just a case of people looking to be triggered because they're bitter for not having a life. The pageants history was a generation before her. Should golfers give back trophies and money for participating in tournaments that take place at clubs that had racist history? Let's just move on from our past and not repeat it. People seem to have gotten over the Democrats racist past that was only 50-60 years ago.....although some believe there are huge undertones they hide just to get votes and fool their constituents. They only care about black lives every 4 years.

  • What a shallow assess from both hosts... dismantle the organization for its racist past? That happened over 40 years ago? Requiring apologies from this actress from something that happened to her over 20 years ago? Okay then, how long ago Hollywood was racist or sexist? They at one point wouldnt let Hattie Mcdaniel attend the Oscar Cerimony in which she won the Oscar. How far away are the film industry from being racist and sexist still? If people want to go that route, let all the celebrities, actors, producers, directors apologize and then we can dismatle the whole movie industry too, because they have the same past as this said organization. And after that, ET Canada hosts can go find another job, after apologizing, of course, because they too, did drink from the same fountain that all those racists and sexists did.

Absolutely I would those houses are gorgeous, in the USA the White House was built by slaves , you would never visit there I suppose ?
