OT: Band's taunt: 'Where's your green card?' (Southern Miss) - 03-15-2012, 05:55 PM

Southern Miss band members deliver racist taunt at NCAA tournament game

I guess the NCAA tourney is full swing...and Mississippi is still Mississippi.

Quote:
Well this is just all kinds of wrong: Southern Miss band members taunted a Kansas State player with chants of “Where’s your green card?” during the teams’ second-round NCAA tournament game in Pittsburgh today.

The player in question, Wildcats freshman guard Angel Rodriguez, is from Puerto Rico, so he’s a U.S. citizen.
Imagine that happening with Cal and Jorge. I'd be ready to storm Southern Miss' band...just for the hell of it.

p.s. karma's a real bi-otch, K-state rolled SMU big time.

Gotta love the deep south,I guess they were all fired up about Santoriums victory and his stance on puerto Rico gaining statehood only if you speak English. I thought George Wallace was dead.

Don't look now...From Rick's website: "A wealth of research is now available demonstrating that pornography causes profound brain changes in both children and adults, resulting in widespread negative consequences."

Turd blossoms in full bloom in the south.

Unless one has been living under an intellectual rock, Mississippi is one of the top two most conservative, Republican states in "the union." The behavior of these students is part and parcel of the "redstate" mindset...

Prejudice "dies hard," in this state, as symbolized by the fact that the city of Vicksburg, Mississippi did not celebrate our National Holiday, the 4th of July, until 80 years after the Civil War

IIRC, Vicksburg was occupied by the Union Army during the war and suffered greatly because of it. Just a little context.

A little more context, the date of Vickburg's surrender to the Union forces under General Grant: July 4, 1863.

Also, FWIW, I think it was the less the Union's occupation of Vicksburg that was the cause of so much suffering as it was the six-week siege that preceded the occupation.

Sadly, a lot of my very intelligent Republican friends have felt morally compelled to do this. It has become very difficult to be a classic fiscal conservative with small government and libertarian values in the modern GOP.

It's too bad we can't use "modern" in its fullest sense... - 03-16-2012, 07:30 AM

which would include "advanced or developed". This "modern" GOP as evidenced by Rick Santorum is, at best, reflective of early 20th century culture. For the Party of Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt, it is a sad development.

Somewhere in Mountain View Cemetery, my grandfather's ashes are whirling in his grave.

Yes. At this point though, I think you have to abandon your classic fiscal conservative attitude for four more years. You really shouldn't associate yourself with the GOP right now. It's really awful what they're doing.

Seriously I applaud people like your very intelligent Republican friends. It's not an easy thing to do, what they are doing. But it is the right thing.

Besides Ron Paul, it seems most of them are pushing religious values to strongly for moderate America. Gingrich's war against non-christian America and Santorum's desire to implement strict catholic values can both be viewed as borderline radical.

I dont undersand this religious push by them. There aren't any problems based around religion in America that require such a strong campaign focus. its like they are trying to "out religious" the other.
