And it turns at he's from: the US commonwealth of Puerto Rico, thereby making him a natural born citizen. Joke's on Southern Miss!

Total idiots. But not surprising for a school in the State of Mississippi.

Your mom told me she wants a Dicken Cidar.

I live in Georgia, so needless to say I hear this type of BS a little bit.  It's absolutely absurd to me that this type of stuff goes on still.  I just read some comments to a picture someone posted on facebook of Air Force One arriving in Atlanta, and I've never been more pissed off at some people.  It read, "he heard that we have really good fried chicken and watermelon."  I mean come on - how immature can you possibly be.

Jeesh. Get out of Hattiesburg much?  

Have any of these folks been to LA or NY?  Hell half the city is named Rodriguez.  That name is damn near as American as Smith, Jones or Jackson.

Gen. Sherman, I'm a big fan of your work, but perhaps you should have lit more stuff on fire.

swing hard in case you hit it.

I am shocked to hear of this kind of intolerance among students from the University of Southern Mississippi, which has been admitting nonwhites for over 40 years.

The only thing worse than a racist is a dumb racist.  LOL, if you're from Puerto Rico you are an American citizen.  Just like when Paul Maguire said Juan Pablo Montoya was eating a taco...ehh, Montoya is Colombian.  If you're going to be racist, at least know what you're talking about.

bob griese. also, a better solution would probably be to avoid being racist in the first place

Yeah this is the 21st century, not the 19th.  And yeah it was Griese now that I watched the clip, I was going off of my memory which apparently is blurry after 3 years.

I hate to be a debbie downer, but I had similiar experiences in Columbus growing up...I am Puerto Rican and I heard alot of taco jokes, crossing the border jokes, etc...and it came from both kids at school and kids at church. They basically didn't stop until I joined the Navy.

"2014 National with it!!!"

I always wondered why any black athlete would have ever wanted to play for Ole Miss. The Rebels, It just seems racist at its core. The old mascot was basically a slave owner. Seems weird to me.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.
