11-Year-Old Boy Nails The National Anthem, And The Racists Go Nuts

Sebastien De La Cruz sang the National Anthem at the Game 3 NBA finals in San Antonio, and the Twittersphere erupted into a storm of racism and hatred.

It’s things like this that make me want to live in another country. Seriously, folks, what the hell?

And the Tweets:

Those comments are completely messed up. I haven't watched the vid yet but will when I get off work.

I wouldn't say nailed it, since he went flat a few times, but he did absolutely amazing. It is difficult to sing that song acapella. And I'd say a Hispanic kid singing it is what our country is about. Being proud to be here is something to applaud, not ridicule and get pissy over.

Who knew that only white people were Americans? News to me.

I'd like to say I am shocked that people say this stuff but I'm not.  I'm more shocked that my dad wasn't caught being an asshole.

This is no shock just look at the crap some of these cafe moms say to others. People are mean, childish, hateful, but not everyone is.

He did amazing! The National Anthem is one of the hardest songs to sing (even professional singers screw it up on occasion)...I wish I could say I was shocked by the reactions, but I'm not and it makes me so sad to see people throwing out these horrible comments about a child!
