    In the Southwestern US, Spanish ancestry predates the arrival of “Americans” by about 200 years! We are the “illegal aliens” in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California!

    These ugly statements against one of the best renditions of our national anthem by a child who has a real gift for singing, makes me ashamed that ignorance in our country is at an all time high.

    this is what happens when people lack education and/or marketable skills; they dump on those who have what they lack.

    Did those jokers know that there were Spanish in Texas a couple of hundred years before there were any English speakers? His family could have been there for 400 years….How many generations has YOUR family been “here”?

    Have these , sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical, bigot have not one ounce of brains. You’re pissing off the largest minority voting block in America. In not too many year Texas will turn thanks to Hispanics. The GOP has already lost VA, NV, and CO. Remember the Whip Party. It’s happening to you and I am love the Republican death spiral.

    Looks like they’re too ignorant to know that San Antonio was a Spanish colonial city and the “Mexicans” have been there longer than we have.

    My Spanish teacher once taught us about Gazpacho soup, and she said (and I’m not referencing my Spanish teacher because the Sebastian is Mexican, but because the memory is relevant to the comments)…she said that many people call the United States a Melting Pot, but that she felt it was more like Gazpacho, where all the different flavors were unique and individual, but together made up the meal. I loved that analogy, because I think it’s cool that America would be Gazpacho soup. We should celebrate our diverse history—all the different cultures that came together to make us unique—not quite like any other Nation, but built from the best of many of them.

    I want to celebrate what the many people of the world celebrate and evolve by learning from it all. I think it’s so very sad that there is such a strong aversion to diversity in a Nation that was built on people coming here from somewhere else. Not only have so many people foresaken the lessons we could have learned from the original peoples of this land, but from all the peoples who moved here or were brought here against there will—and many who came here with hopes and dreams because it was a better place.
