MEEKS: One is too many

Sebastian De La Cruz, an 11-year-old boy who can sing, is one of racism’s latest victims. A few days ago, he was tweeted about in the most disparaging ways by people who should have better things to do. This child was invited to sing at Game 3 of the NBA Finals and as a result of the ugly things that were said about him in the Twitter world, the Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs and their coaches invited him back to sing at Game 4. The audience loved him because he has a great voice and did an outstanding job. He is a mariachi singer and he wore an appropriate costume for his performance. He lives in San Antonio, where he was born. He is a citizen, though whether he is or not does not matter because one racist tweet about him is one too many.
