    I wasn't aware that this happened, though I did hear Anthony sing, beautifully. But this is nonsense. My father was an immigrant, and he sang the National Anthem at every Indiana University basketball game for nearly twenty years. Sang it with great pride. We're a country built on immigrants.

    But according to the conservative white guys who post here daily, there is no racism in America, except against middle class white men.

    Truly sad, but sports builds character, Right?

    Being a european mutt, in Utah county you still here a lot of derogatory statements by good ol' boys who can spot illegal's by the color of their skin, and comment as such after they walk by or leave the store.

    HVH,
    Save it. It is impossible to eradicate all of racism from the world, but all races have more freedoms in this country than any other.

    I read another story that depicted the story about the mexican american boy singing this song at the beginning of the game he was at. On that news story it was a bunch of black people issuing the racist tweets. This article was just showing tweets from white guys. Funny how that is.

    @Badger55:

    It's also not against the law to be racist... else about 90 percent of this country would be in jail... including Blacks, Hispanics, Asians, etc. The government can't force me or anyone else to not be and act racist. If Zim was the worst kind of racist in his personal life, that still should not be a factor in the jury's decision in the recent murder case.

    Of course it is and should be illegal to apply racism in official government business.
