11 Year Old Nails National Anthem

16 posts in this topic

An 11-year-old boy's rendition of the national anthem at Game 3 of the NBA finals brought the usual appreciative applause Tuesday, but outside AT&T Center in San Antonio, his performance brought a darker reaction from some posters on social media -- and eventually an online backlash against their racist comments.

See the performance by Sebastien De La Cruz

Here's a sampling of some of the unkind tweets that went flying around the Internet about Sebastien De La Cruz:

-- "Why they got a Mexican kid singing the national anthem -___-"from Daniel Gilmore.

-- "How you singing the national anthem looking like an illegal immigrant" from Andre Lacey, proud father and firefighter from Augusta, Georgia.

-- "Why is a foreigner singing the national anthem. I realize that's San Antonio but that still ain't Mexico" from Lewie Groh.

-- "Who let this illegal alien sing our national anthem?" from Matt Cyrus.

Just proves that the world is filled with complete fuging idiots.

 

Round them up....put them on a small island....give a few mentally unstable people AR-15's.....and let them have at it.  The world would be a better place without the idiots that made those comments.

That's basically what Europe feels they've done already. Although America's not exactly small.

Why does it not surprise me that you would post something as moronic as that?

Why does it not surprise me that Sheltered McBluster can't see the humor.

I remember the same thing when Christina Aguilera messed up the anthem during the Super Bowl.

Racist idiots kept asking "why is SHE singing the AMERICAN national anthem?"

Those damn children of US military personnel singing the Star Spangled Banner. National tragedy, but only if their last name ends with a vowel.

    • Why has civics been deemphasized across this nation? Knowledge is power.
    • This quote was and remains the most important in your original writeup: "The question is whether the Panthers can maximize his talents and Cam's at the same time." If Fournette is the guy, they need to be 100% certain that Cam can smoothly transition to an offense based around him being under center.  Because like you - I'm convinced that LF would be wasted in the offense we've run the past two years. Cam's footwork and read discipline will need to become much more consistent in an offense based on traditional formations.  Frankly, I'm not sure you mess with your MVP QB to draft a RB.  But it's possible that our shotgun-based offense won't work once the QB run is off the table, so maybe the transition has to happen anyway.  If that's their approach, LF could certainly ease that transition. Then again, can you transition the offense if Cam's shoulder isn't ready for the start of training camp?
    • Buy what you need? Republcians keep using this talking point....a talking point that plays to people that don't understand.  Because the talking point goes against what insurance is.... insurance wouldn't exist if people only paid for what they needed. the 25 year old then doesn't need to pay in for the 60 year old (that doesn't want to pay for maternity coverage) then....and the 60 year old needs to pay $60,000 for his insurance because he needs to bear the load for his blood pressure meds, cholesterol meds, his triple bypass, hip replacement etc.
