Niagara Gazette — This story has a somewhat happy ending. The Spurs invited Sebastian back Thursday night to sing the national anthem again. He was escorted in his mariachi outfit onto the court and introduced by San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, and after another rousing a capella rendition, was immediately congratulated by Miami coach Erik Spoelstra and Spurs coach Greg Popovich.
Reacting to the offensive tweets, Popovich said: “I would like to say I would be shocked or surprised by the comments. But given the fact that there’s still a significant element of bigotry and racism in our nation, I’m not surprised.
“It still plagues us, obviously. And what I was surprised by was how proud these idiots were of their ignorance by printing their names next to their comments.”
Good people far outnumber the proud idiots, but it’s obvious we still have work to do to end racial prejudice in America.The Daily Star, Oneonta
