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:

I love when these comments go viral. I really hope anyone who sees these people in person recognize them, loudly, in a crowded place, as "That racist on Twitter".

I heard he was supposed to sing it again last night.    I had to work so don't know but I hope he did.

Twitter is full of assholes. He sang beautifully, and I agree with the others who pointed out that this is actually what our whole country is all about.

People can be idiots, and unfortunately Twitter gives idiots an instant megaphone for their idiotic idiocy.
