African-American nuclear chemist who 'doesn't like to call herself a feminist' and says health care is a 'privilege' is crowned Miss USA

An African-American nuclear chemist from Washington, DC, won the 2017 edition of Miss USA on Sunday night after telling the audience about her conservative political viewpoints. 
Kára McCullough, a 25-year-old nuclear chemist who works for the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission, told the audience how she doesn't necessarily view herself as a feminist and said that health care is a privilege and not a right. 
She also won plaudits for wearing her hair natural and curly throughout the competition.  
The event, which featured beauties from each state and the nation's capital outfitted in dazzling dresses and swimsuits, came to an end on Sunday night during a two-hour finale at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center on the Las Vegas strip.  McCullough will now be able to go on to compete in the Miss Universe contest.
