Miss South Carolina has been bashed for her introduction at the Miss America pageant where she highlighted South Carolina's love of movable homes.
Miss South Carolina was just trying to be funny; I know I laughed when I heard it. But I guess I was in the minority. Many people were offended by her comments. They would have preferred that she said something more positive about our state and there are certainly lots of positive things to mention about South Carolina.
But it's also true that we have one of the highest percentages of people living in mobile homes. Why is that so negative? If you live in a mobile home, manufactured home, or traditional home and you're proud to have that home, that's what matters.
Rather than beat up Miss South Carolina for what she said maybe more people should lighten up and laugh. Because, in reality, that IS the way we roll.
