Why have we made it our business to look down on people who cannot speak good English?
I am proud of what Maxine has accomplished. That she was able to do that amidst all the bashers who think they are better individuals than her, is a source of pride in itself.
My message to all those bashers (please note that I am being liberal in using the word "might" here):
You might be smart... you might be good at speaking a foreign language... but Ate, you are lacking the height, good looks and poise to compete head to head with all these global beauties. In short, this is a beauty contest and all you have is your beautiful English and you won't (and can't) win with just that.
