Daugher of Sikh immigrants becomes Governor of South Carolina (I hope)

Why isn’t the media promoting Nikki Haley (nee Nimrata Nikki Randhawa)? Why aren’t we hearing that there is a series of historic firsts in this year’s election? The first female governor of South Carolina; the first governor, male or female person of color; the first governor whose family is from South Asia. Wouldn’t this be a tremendous story for the media: South Carolina goes from being the first state to secede from the Union to electing the daughter of Indian Sikh immigrants as Governor of their state.

Why, because it’s not consistent with the narrative that the media wants to promote.
