    That's moronic. No one has even suggested that. Being invaded by millions of foreign criminals while Democrats reward them and even bring them to Capitol Hill to testify at hearings will make people wonder if having an apparent foreigner sing the national anthem is just one more attempt to spit in the face of the American people and the rule of law. Liberals are hysterically over-reacting here.

I don't consider this story to be an Earth-shattering event. But I'm also not hyper-ventilating to find racism lurking in every corner of the world like liberals are, either.
    I agree this is a problem. But, I don't see that this boy is part of these invading our country. I think it is important that our concern be focused in the right direction.

    And I am totally within my right to think you are a jerk for expressing that opinion. That shouldn't even be controversial.
    It just so happens that my opinion happens to correspond to reality.
    You don't have the right to determine who belongs on a debate forum.That is the job of the admins,mods,and the owner.

    Being a racist has lost all meaning at this point. It simply means disagreeing with Democrats on anything, ever...so who freaking cares?

    An apparent foreigner? How should a 'standard' American look?
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    The argument isn't that he necessarily is an illegal immigrant, it's that it's a small infraction for a handful of people to jump to such a conclusion when this insanity is being shoved down our throats all day, every day.

    Now that is a twisted logic loop. It is the 'real' Americans having a cow because someone who doesn't look like they came from Northern Europe is singing a USofA national song but OH NOOOOO you have to twist it around to try and claim we who object to that sort of knee jerk hate are first first generation immigrants and second have less of a claim to this country we do love and some of us have served than the angry old white dude crowd.

    Sorry Charlie, America is a melting pot not a bleaching vat, and given the level of bitching, whining and general sour grapes ranting the 'real' Americans do I'd say the rest of us are just fitting in...

    Matt Cyrus.

    PS black or white is irrelevant. Racism is racism. Nice try to deflect though.

    You would be correct if you substituted "racist hambones" for "people" in your post. Otherwise you are plain and simply wrong.
