The band from University of Southern Mississippi chanted “Where’s your green card?” at a player from Kansas State during that NCAA Tournament game
Oh and, um, the player is from… Puerto Rico. He’s an American citizen.
The “good” news is that the university president has already issued a statement:
We deeply regret the remarks made by a few students at today’s game. The words of these individuals do not represent the sentiments of our pep band, athletic department or university. We apologize to Mr. Rodriquez and will take quick and appropriate disciplinary action against the students involved in this isolated incident.
It wouldn’t hurt to educate them, either.
Good grief, my stomach is in knots; today must be unofficial Racist Day.
March Madness, indeed.
Think Progress has more.
