MIss America, Nina Davuluri, of Fayetteville (near Syracuse) was on First News with Keeler in the Morning on WIBX on Wednesday.  Davuluri said she wasn't distracted by the racist remarks that were prompted when she won the Miss America crown a few weeks ago.  She said she experienced some of the discrimination when she won Miss New York.

Davuluri, who was born in the United States, became the first Miss America of Indian decent.  Her parents moved to America from India in 1981.

She plans to study medicine at SUNY Upstate Medical in Syracuse soon.  She says she's a big fan of the Empire Brewing Company and Dinosaur Barbecue.
