Kansas St beats Southern Miss in NCAA East Regional

At the end of Kansas State's 70-64 victory over Southern Mississippi in the 2nd round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, something rather horrible happened at the CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh.

With eight seconds left in the game, Wildcats guard Angel Rodriguez was fouled and was sent to the line to shoot a couple of free throws. Several members of the Southern Miss pep band began to hurl racist chants at Rodriguez by yelling, "Where's your green card?"

This anti-immigration chant was hollered out at Rodriguez because he is of Puerto-Rican descent. This racist chant from earlier today once again proves that Mississippi continues to be one of the most racist states in the USA. Keep it classy, Southern Mississippi.
