Racists Still Don't Like That a Mexican-American Kid Sang the National Anthem at the NBA Finals
As you’ve probably heard by now, some people were not at all happy that 10 year old mariachi singer Sebastian de la Cruz sang the national anthem at Game 3 of the NBA finals last Tuesday.
Since then, 10 year old Sebastian de la Cruz has owned them. He owned them both in written 140-character word on Twitter and via moving image on the television. If I was a 14 year old playing X-Box 360, I would use the term PWNAGE to describe what he did right there.
So as you can see, San Antonio born Mexican-American Sebastian de la Cruz is pretty awesome. The kid is so awesome, in fact, that the San Antonio Spurs invited him back to sing the national anthem again at Game 4 of the NBA finals last Thursday. Sebastian sang and the crowd cheered. He won, assholes lost spectacularly.
After he sang the second time around, the messages came pouring in to this here website about all the racist anti-immigrant responses being posted online again. But last week was about Sebastian de la Cruz and his annihilation of the haters. That was the story. So, I waited to post these.
“Sounds illegal. #GreenCardPlease” says guy with Irish last name.
“This racism tastes a little bitter. I know, we’ll add a touch of homophobia and…WALLA!”
Ladies and gentlemen, a “NOT” joke! So creative…I applaud you. #not.
I totally agree, dude! Letting an American born citizen sing the national anthem is very unAmerican.
You’re using “smh.” SMH.
Interesting piece of info from MACK’s Twitter bio:
Can’t understand why.
“What is the country coming too?” A country where Mexican-American 10 year olds can belt out the country’s national anthem better than some loser on Twitter’s grammar.
Damn right, Kevin! Poor white people never get their chance in the spotlight!
Nice hashtags. Keep up with that “minority outreach.”
Just in case you’re thinking of deleting your tweets *before* I can find them, remember your internet posts last forever…
And to show it’s not all Twitter, the next screenshot is from Facebook and was sent in by a reader of the site:
*pours one out for the declining white people population*
Now, without further ado, the two “best” posts I came across in this set of tweets:
2) The guy who hates that a Mexican is singing the national anthem, is then told the kid is an American and was born here…
…and he “still doesn’t like it!” (aka he is different than me and I am afraid.)
1) Possibly the most “amazing” tweet posted concerning this Sebastian de la Cruz national anthem “controversy”…
“Compassionate” Chris who would rather have Adele, an English born UK citizen, sing the United States national anthem, then an AMERICAN CITIZEN because the American citizen happens to be of Mexican descent. We’ve fallen so deep into the dark pits of stupidity you could say we’re…rolling in it? *rimshot*
