    Kid is an American citizen. He is a damn good singer, worthy of a gig singing at this venue. End of story.

    I'm surprised that someone has not commented about his costume.
    I'm not. I didn't post this article. I just read everyone acting all aghast that a handful of blacks (i.e., Democrat voters) jumped to a conclusion. I'm just explaining that these guys aren't the freaking anti-Christ. We're under attack. People are going to be a little sensitive and over-react. And again, I'm not actually sure that he is an American citizen, at least according to the author of the 14th Amendment.

    You are the one who called him a Mexican with no mention of American. I was just pointing out he is not simply a Mexican, which would be a native of Mexico, of which he is not.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    So do I, but there are people that believe the costume is too PC and would prefer he sang in a more traditionl American costume, say the French Tutu.

    That still depends on whether or not he's "subject to the jurisdiction" of the U.S.

    While I certainly don't agree with aquapub trying to justify assumptions being made about someone because of his/her appearance, I just have to say that NO, you cannot always state your opinions in peace. A lot of times people are attacked for stating their opinions on this forum.

    I believe that Hispanics constitute around 15 to 20 percent of the overall population in the US, so I don't think someone appearing as Hispanic is a rational reason to assume he or she is an illegal immigrant.

    Seriously, lay down this mindless, hysterical race-card. You have UTTERLY overplayed and discredited it at this point and it carries ZERO weight.
    You would rather a European looking kid had sung?

    Hi Aquapub, nice to see you are still slinging out stupidity. Stop by more often so we can laugh at your posts more.

    Unless I completely miss the meaning of the first amendment, it gives you the right to speak your piece. It does not mention that others must agree with you, or let you have your opinion without any opposing opinions.
