Is this woman even part Scandinavian? If not she should not be a representative of a celebration of Scandinavian heritage. It has nothing to do with skin color. A Russian shouldn't be crowned either. Do you think the NAACP would allow a white Norwegian woman to be crowned Miss Africa Fest?

This is a good point, however it is only relevant if it is a requirement And ALL the other Miss Vikings have been of Scandinavian descent...it cannot be a requirement only for Miss Cambell. RE: racist emails; I don't understand how some people can think they are better than others, for we are all God's children; I especially don't understand those who think they are superior when they demonstrate how vicious and hateful they can be towards children (Miss Williams is not yet an adult).
