Southern Miss. band chants ‘green card’ at Latino player
Southern Mississippi University lived up to the racist reputation of the deep South on Friday when members of the school band chanted an offensive question at a Latino player on the opposing team.
As he prepared to shoot his free throws, Kansas State point guard Angel Rodriguez was forced to listen to a chant of “Where’s your green card?” coming from the audience.
Manhattan Mercury reporter Cole Manbeck tweeted that the racist serenade came from members of the Southern Mississippi band.
The Kansas State Wildcats went on to defeat the Southern Mississippi Golden Eagles 70-64 in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Rodriguez scored 13 points and led his team with 4 assists.
