  • Mexican Immigrants have allegiance to no country but Mexico

    This message was posted by a native-born Mexican-American:

    Last Sunday I took my son to the Coliseum in Los Angeles for what I thought would be a great opportunity to witness soccer at its best. What we witnessed instead was a shameful display of hooliganism, vulgarity and disrespect. Never had I been so ashamed to be a Mexican-American.

    My son and I were pelted with beer, soda and God knows what else for having had the temerity to display an American flag and cheer for our team. I watched with dread as I saw my son's eyes filled with confusion at the disrespect displayed while our national anthem was played even though we stood at attention for the Mexican anthem.

    I was further saddened to have him witness the physical and verbal abuse heaped on Team USA by the "fans." I was speechless after the game when my son asked . . . why? On behalf of all Mexican-Americans who were there, I apologize to those abused, including Preki, Wynalda, et al. But most of all I apologize to my son.

    That's not the way it's supposed to be.
