NUMBER 5 - MISS AMERICA BACKLASH
"Going into this, I wanted to be the first Indian Miss America to be that symbol of a new face for the organization, and let the younger girls know regardless of race, their socioeconomic status, their religion, they can be not only Miss America, but anything they want to be. I'm living my American dream right now," Miss America winner Nina Davaluri said. It's the first time in the pageant's 93 year history that a woman of Indian heritage has won. Unfortunately, the historic crowning sparked racist backlash online. One post even incorrectly denounced the new Miss America as a Muslim. But Davaluri says shows of support have far outweighed the negativity. She plans to use the money she won to pay for medical school.

NUMBER 3 - STARBUCKS BANS GUNS
