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.

Its even more depressing thinking that this same man might have a chance to run this country.

I would really like to know what his "wealth of research" is. Rick, your mother doesnt count as a viable source.

I wonder if he still believes that masturbating will cause hair to grow out of your palms

Before I go off-topic, does anyone know if Southern Miss offered an apology? These chants are reminscent of the stories Jeremy Lin told of how fans would call him a c*ink, slant their eyes and yell - "Hey Jeremy, can you see the ball?"

Racism still exists and the only way we can address it is educating people about it.

And now off topic-

Thanks to Romney, Newt, and Rick - the GOP party is going down the drain. Their campaign against women is bizarre, but hey - as a Democrat - fine with me. I like Obama and want 4 more years!

"Most posters seemed pretty intelligent." On the first page, perhaps - try wading through the following two pages, however. Wow, just wow...

Given the sort of anti-immigrant climate the US is in we probably shouldn't be that surprised.

Disgusted, yes. Surprised, unfortunately no.
