National Anthem inspires racist conniption fit

A well known Mexican-American kid sings the national anthem at a basketball game and the ignorant racist twitterverse goes ape****.
Ignorance is it's own prize.

That's why I support freedom of speech 100% -- it makes it easy for the idiots of this world to out themselves. Idiots with no compassion, between this cute kid and the cute biracial girl in the cereal commercial, how can anyone with a little bit of heart say such things? It's like punching a newborn or something.

Agreed. They tweet that crap out without thinking that their words will be used to show them up.

Why? I didnt think we had that much racism alive today. We arent taught much about other cultures. This I know. Maybe thats why. I learned a lot from one of my good friends who is from Mexico. I never knew he was though.

When I saw the OP I thought it was going to be the Mexican National Anthem being sung. The kid was singing the American National Anthem. What's the problem?

If this is a problem and only "true Americans" are allowed to sing the national anthem, I guess we better start lining up American Indians for the ball games. Those are the only Americans that I can think of that would qualify.

BTW, this is not an act of racism, it's an act of ignorance. Some people evidently assume that since he has Mexican roots that he is here illegally. Not necessarily racism. As a Texan, I've known zillions of great people my whole life that were of Mexcan ancestry and here legally. There are lots of fabulous people in and from Mexico.

Considering that you live in a rogue province of Mexico, how is this surprising?
