(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.
