Mexican-American Boy Sings National Anthem Again; Racism Continues to Pour on Twitter

Before the San Antonio Spurs dominated the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, 11-year-old Mexican-American Sebastien De La Cruz sang the national anthem at the AT&T Center. Unfortunately, the ignorance came piling out on social media as soon as De La Cruz was finished with people spouting off racist and insensitive comments about why he would be singing the anthem.

For Game 4, people had their shot at redemption when the young boy got another crack at the anthem which he performed well, but the ignorance continued.

Here are some of the comments that Twitter users have been saying:

WARNING: There is some offensive and vulgar language below. Tweets feature racist, insensitive or offensive remarks.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m sure their mothers are proud.

Do you have a problem with De La Cruz singing the national anthem or is it great to see a young man get this honor and show his proud heritage on a national stage? Share your thoughts in the comments section.
