Hey, kids, didya watch the Scripps Spelling Bee? I did, and I’m very disturbed by what I saw. These were the finalists who eventually lost to
Sonia Sotomayor Kavya Shivashankar:
(l to r, top row (in order of elimination from the finals): Ramya Auroprem, Serena Laine-Lobsinger, Kyle Mou, Aishwarya Pastapur, Kennyi Aouad; bottom row: Sidharth Chand, Tussah Heera, Neetu Chandak, Anamika Veeramani, Tim Ruiter)

Of the finalist, 7 were Indian-American, one Asian-American, one African-American. 7 were girls, only 4 boys. There was only one white male! 😯 Is it any wonder that there were protests at the event?
