Some Racist Bullies Picked A Fight With An 11-Year-Old Kid And Lost In Glorious Patriotic Splendor

So this amazing kid, Sebastien De La Cruz, a mariachi singer from the last season of "America's Got Talent," was asked at the last moment to sing the national anthem in the town he was born and raised in, San Antonio, Texas, USA, for the NBA Finals. He wore his mariachi outfit, which led to every xenophobic and ignorant person on Twitter saying some truly insipid, vile, racist things. 

Fortunately for us, he handles such things with typical can-do American spirit. It only takes him 22 seconds to slap the ignorance right off their faces, in the classiest way possible (see the last video at the bottom).

First came the truly stunning rendition of the national anthem that he busted out. 


Next came the special people with the blinding ignorance and xenophobia, courtesy of the Public Shaming Tumblr. They have a ton more awful ones on their site.


No, it's ironic how truly American this kid really is. Watch and learn.


It's totally up to you, but I'd love it if you shared this if you think we need to elevate the immigration debate in this country. This kind of ignorance shouldn't spread any further. Don't take my word for it though.


BONUS UPDATE: Almost all the racist twitter acounts have either been deleted out of shame or banned.
