    Re: Mexican-American boy's national anthem sparks racist comments

    The point is the kid was born here and his Dad was in the service, he sings a helluva of a National Anthem, yet people question him becaue of the appearence of his skin. Talk all you want, but it is what it is. Racism. Regardless of who says it.

    Ok, I will try it again, you can vote until you are a citizen, illegals are not citizens. See the flaw in your logic?

    Try again.

    Too much ado about too little, if you ask me. This isn't "Breaking News -Mainstream Media" worthy. Back page below the fold at best.
    Absolutely. But CNN has a crisis of "racism" to manufacture.

    Again with the dad in the service distraction. Who cares about that or his singing? This controversy is about CNN trying to invent another example of racist persecution to spoon-feed to its leftist consumers to affirm their ridiculous worldview that everything comes down to racism.

    How many of these idiotic tweets were there? Did twitter "explode" with them or was this just a few isolated tweets?

    San Antonio's proud of Sebastien. The dark side of the Internet is that its anonymity allows otherwise voiceless cockroaches to express themselves. And goodness, check the readers' comments after any article in any online news source. If you do, you might conclude, falsely, that most people are knuckledragging ignoids. But they aren't. And Twitter is what it is. Not everybody tweets or even reads tweets unless they're publicized as these nasty, ignorant ones have been by CNN.

    LEGALLY, yes, you cannot vote until you are a citizen. But since when have Democrats allowed laws to get in the way of an election? Did you not catch all the news stories about districts turning out 115% or so for Obama, when they had gone like 60% for him in 2008?

    Besides, the point is, legitimize their crime (illegally breaking into the country) through amnesty, then give them voting rights. Not exactly rocket science figuring out the agenda here.

    Appearenatly there are quite a people who think this way, so maybe CNN is right. There are even some on this forum who rush in to defend the racist attitudes. Weird, if it is not a problem, why are there so many of you?

The other requirement is listed plainly "...and subject to the jurisdiction thereof..."

    If you aren't subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, and were simply born here, according to the drafters of the 14th Amendment themselves, that does not make you a citizen.

    Just saying.
    Nice try but aren't subject to jurisdiction applies to ambassadors and Native Americans. Diplomatic immunity and nation within a nation. ALL others are subject to the jurisdiction of the United States to include foreign nationals.

    Mexican being forced on us is about the same as hot models forcing beer on us or smirky stubble faced guys forcing fast cars on us. I suppose back in the day Sammy Davis singing the national anthem would have been forcing that civil rights crap on us...

    While much is made of the not in the bill comments made by politicians of the day it isn't law. The politicians can puff and posture all they want but if it was meant ONLY for the freed slaves then why didn't it just say so? What we don't have in the oft repeated quote is what was the question asked? Was it, are them stinkin' Ingins included? THAT more than undocumented immigrants, you do know what WOP means don't you?, was a burning issue back at the turn of the century seeing how Custer was still being mourned/hailed/scorned/idolized.

    No Sir I see hate, not concern in this...
