Editor’s Note: Congratulations to Erin Brady Miss Connecticut USA for winning and be crowned Miss USA 2013 at the 62nd Annual Miss USA Beauty Pageant Competition.
There was more action brewing on the court at the Houston’s AT&T Center this week than the San Antonio Spurs vs. the Miami Heat.
If you caught the opening of both Games 3 and 4 of the NBA Finals, you may have heard Sebastien De La Cruz singing a spirited version of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Dressed in traditional mariachi wardrobe, the 11-year old singer replaced former Hootie & the Blowfish/country singer Darius Rucker for the spotlight role. Rather than critiquing the vocals (clearly the boy is a gifted singer), certain folks took to their Twitter accounts and attacked the patriotic moment using a barrage of embarrassing racist attacks. Yeah, they decided to throw out more of the senseless rhetoric about what is and what is not American.
Just read some of their awful attacks coming from all shades of color:
Sebastien De La Cruz decided to respond to the “haters” by being more classy and more mature than all of them lumped together. This is what he said:
For those who were shamelessly quick to judge and not smart enough to utilize the power of a search engine, the same kid actually starred on America’s Got Talent as the frontboy for El Charros De Oro.
Not only that, he’s a native of San Antonio – born and raised. Cue the silence from the haters.
Because of all the hate that came his way, tons of love were tossed back at the courageous kid. Due to public demand, he returned to center court on Thursday night to perform the Star-Spangled Banner. This time, he was introduced by Mayor Julián Castro and was even greeted by Gregg Popovich and Erik Spoelstra, coaches of both teams. Now that oughta shut the mouths of the KKK spawn children. If those figures don’t address the power of diversity, I don’t know what else will.
NBA commissioner David Stern even weighed in on the conversation. “Racism and prejudice does not stand” in the NBA, Stern said. “The values of the game transcend borders.”
Since the media jumped on the story, it’s been reported that many of the accounts of those racist attacks have since been deleted. (Source: http://hifimagazine.net/blog/?p=7928)
Six hours ago this was posted on his Facebook Fanpage “Yesterday it fell to my wall (so they say) for Facebook a note that spoke of a child whose name had never heard but which is now one of my heroes for his big heart and humanity. His name is Sebastien de la Cruz. I say “El Charro de Oro”. He’s only ten years and possesses a phenomenal voice that made it to the semifinals of the famous America’s Got Talent program where he played nothing more and nothing less than the song made famous by Frank Sinatra, New York, New York.
Turns out the little Sebastien wanted to go see your favorite team play basketball in San Antonio Texas, where it is native. They would play the San Antonio Spurs against the Miami Heat in game three of the final number for the NBA championship. In transit to the game, Sebastien and his father received a call from his agent who tells him that Darius Rucker, American singer, lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish, had canceled at the last minute.
The Little Sebastian, took off his cap to the Spurs, his shirt and shorts and put his charro costume singing the national anthem of the United States. His prominent voice and near perfect interpretation made the stadium shuddered with excitement. But a sector shuddered united states: the racist, the bigot, the rude, the ignorant.
I can not express in words the sadness that brings me as a human being human also know myself and know that I live and cohabit in a country where the “Americans” have a false conception about Latinos, calling them inferior, second-or third-class human sub when the reality is different. Misconceptions and derogatory that only cause embarrassment not only for those who are targeted attacks but for whom broach.” ~https://www.facebook.com/SebastienElCharroDeOro
