Mariachi singer Sebastien De La Cruz responds to Twitter bullies

Alright…I’m about to start venting and I’m not going to apologize for my views. I’m so over people nowadays and the racist, sexist, and every other -ist out there that I can’t really hold it in anymore.

Between the online reactions to the Cheerios commercial and now the comments made on Twitter and other social media outlets about Sebastien De La Cruz’s performance during Game 3 of the NBA Finals, I am saddened and dismayed by some of the so called “patriots” here in the States.

Folks need to really need to take a look at themselves and ask why they are hating on America. What do I mean by that? These kids represent the diversity that is the United States today.

American society always had more than “one face.” If you have such a problem with the melting pot that the US has become, maybe it’s time to find a new home.

As a child of parents who are immigrants I am proud of my heritage as well as being apart of the fabric of America. Many members of my family (including my significant other) are or were members of the military. Most of them were born abroad but risked their lives defending this country. Does that mean that their children and grandchildren aren’t American enough to have pride in the USA? Some folks need to get over themselves and wake up to reality is the United States in a 21st century global society.
