The Internet. It changed our lives and gave every jerk a chance to write anything they want.

Yes: Racism still exists in our country. It's like being on a cruise. You meet someone who is not very nice on message boards and face to face they smile and give you that: "It's just good natured fun", explanation.

Take care,
Mike

Zyde, for once we can agree on something. The boy is from here in San Antonio , and the city loves him. He sang the National Anthem again at the NBA playoff game last night.

I can agree with zidecocruiser and Paul B..

And let me add that I don't want to see racism in any form.

Regardless of how nice anybody's city is, the poor kid gets the pleasure of reading those hateful tweets.

And, cruisemates, I guarantee you the folk posting those tweets aren't liberals.

Pick your sides, but don't sugar coat what happened to that kid.

I saw the young man sing the National Anthem and that is what I saw. To use some american slang, "He got down"!!! Nice.

Very well said Luanne! I would be happy to see that happen as well.

Amazing how some people have nothing better to do then tear other people down. If I had a 10 yo kid, who could sing like that, I don't think I would let him on twitter or Facebook just to protect him from the idiots out there.

You can't shelter them forever and I think would be a disservice both to the child and to the (mostly) good people out there. I think would mess them up even more when they find out.

Punishing the child isn't the solution.

I have to agree that you can't shelter a child from the realities of life.
All of us have to live with the adversities that come along the way.
