Texas reacts to mariachi kid anthem racism: ‘We can do better!’

(PNS reporting from SAN ANTONIO) Some Texans are ashamed of last night’s racist online reaction to 10-year-old mariachi singer Sebastien de la Cruz’s performance of The Star Spangled Banner at the NBA finals here.

“We can do better!” shouted one local activist at a hastily-called demonstration outside AT&T Center today.

“How can we expect more people to join our racist krusade if we persist in really sloppy spelling, inconsistent capitalization, confused subject-verb agreement and endless repetition of stale cliches?” said Stanley Merdkopf, president of the local chapter of Organized Racist Crackers for America (ORCA.)

“Look at TH THA DJ’s Tweet,” said Merdkopf. “There are three spelling mistakes in the first five words!”

“These ignoramuses could have at least mentioned that the kid’s intonation was off from the start — he consistently sang flat,” said Merdkopf. “And ‘beaner’ is NOT spelled with two E’s, and it’s ‘singing,’ not ‘signing.'”

Sebastien, a veteran of American Idol and America’s Got Talent, was unmoved by the criticsm. He told a local TV show (video, below) that he was a proud Mexican-American, the son of a Navy veteran and a Spurs fan.

“They don’t know my life!” he said.

These people are full of ignorance and bigotry!
Their English is such a shameful site I would not write on social media if I were them.
I am so proud of Sebastien and would love to express my sincere admiration to him in a letter. Our children deserve respect.
Sebastien De La Cruz deserves respect!

Aye los white trash hillybobs are at it again! These are the poster children for what results of inbreeding. These twits are twittering and confirming their racist ignorance. Oh yes, we knew you were stupid and now we know your evil too. Picking on a child- if we made fun of some white kid up there it would have been anti-American!!! Wow, and I bet they think they are good Christians.

What else could we expect from the state of Texas? This is a state run by Rick Perry, who owned a ranch that was called “N-word Head.” Remember, Texas became a state by breaking Mexican immigration laws. They brought slaves with them when the Mexican government gave the American “settlers” permission to live in Tejas. Even though Mexico had abolished slavery in 1829, making Mexico the TRUE land of the free. So surprise, surprise, people in America are racist.
