As Twitchy told you, newly crowned Miss USA Kára McCullough set liberal tongues a-wagging on Sunday night when she called health care “a privilege” — not a right — and said that women “are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace.”
This morning, McCullough “clarified” her remarks and appeared to be walking them back, but not fast enough for digital mag The Root:

Not just problematic, but “problematic as hell”:
If you like the headline, you’ll love the post. Here’s a sample:
Sadly, many of the now-crowned champion’s comments remind us that the former owner of Miss USA is Donald Trump. Surely, there is no coincidence in the similarity between McCullough’s and Trump’s god-awful responses related to health care and feminism. But then I remembered: Only one is systematically oppressing communities in ways that literally cause the death of already marginalized individuals.
If this wasn’t bad enough, when asked about feminism, McCullough said, “As a woman scientist in the government, I’d like to lately transpose the word feminism to equalism.”
What did she just say? There is no such thing, and her answer was merely an attempt to not appear divisive. Mission not accomplished.
Make no mistake: Some of McCullough’s answers are what happens when only science, technology, engineering and mathematics are emphasized with no foundation in liberal arts. McCullough’s statements in both of her answers were vapid, lacked minimal thought and were, hopefully, the result of a 30-second pressured thought as opposed to a fully considered response. Nonetheless, I recognize that at her age, I was guilty of having many of the same views on issues about which I developed a fuller understanding as I matured.
Get it? If only McCullough were as mature as Preston Mitchum, she’d realize that her independent thinking makes her some kind of race traitor!
What insulting garbage.
@TheRoot When ignorance hides behind identity politics, you get articles like this.

It really is.
@TheRoot Problematic? Why would you treat someone like that?

@TheRoot So, you think everyone with a certain skin color should think the same way? So much for "diversity!"

@TheRoot Apparently you can be not black enough? Really? This is the worst kind of racism.

@TheRoot Only thing problematic is your racism.
