Racist basketball fans go off on 10 year old Mexican-American that sang the National Anthem before Game 3

2013 NBA Finals - Game Three

We all knew after game 3 that the meme creators and Twitterverse were going to have fun going off and making fun of LeBron James.  Fine. He’s a rich, famous, powerful adult celebrity in the spotlight because he’s one of, if not the, best at what he does.  Even Jimmy Kimmel had some fun with a bunch of NBA players ranging from Kobe to Chris Paul reading “mean tweets” on TV and it was fine to laugh again because these are all adults that should be able to ignore the words of children and immature “adults.”

What is not fine with me is the hundreds of racist comments made about Sebastian De La Cruz – the 10 year old Mexican-American that sang the Nation Anthem before game 3.  Below are some of those tweets along with commentary by the blog Public Shaming.

As you can see, patriotic Americans were NONE TOO PLEASED that a Mexican (don’t tell these people he’s Mexican AMERICAN) sang the United States national anthem – a song so beautiful that bald eagles usually cry whenever they hear it but not tonight because a Mexican sang it.

“#GoHome.” He’s already home. He lives in San Antonio. The same San Antonio where the majority of the population is Mexican.

OK THERE, “THE GREAT WHITE.”

“I’m highly upset that THIS MEXICAN KID is singing the anthem.” lmao. Wait a few years Grace and tell us how you feel when the majority of the country is Hispanic. I look forward to hearing from you then!

San Antonio may already be your own personal hell if that’s how you feel about Mexicans, Blake.

Correction: YOU ain’t. All of the United States ain’t racist white males like you, Thomas.

lmao, DESTIN WHITE. If “what has the world come to” is your reaction to a little Mexican boy singing the anthem, you just wait! Hint: your world won’t be WHITE.

And, now, for my favorite tweets: people asking why is this Mexican/illegal/foreigner/etc. singing “OUR/MY ANTHEM”…
