Members of the Southern Mississippi University band took their heckling one step too far on Thursday when they started chanting “Where’s you’re green card?” while a Latino Kansas State player was on the foul line.
The mean-spirited taunts would have been out of line in any circumstance. However, it’s worth noting that the player, Angel Rodriguez, was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and is therefore a U.S. citizen.
Thursday’s game was took place in Pittsburgh. Kansas State went on to win 70-64, with Rodriguez scoring 13 points.

UPDATE: USA Today reports that Southern Mississippi president Martha Saunders issued an apology to Rodriguez dissociating the university from the incident, but misspelling the player’s last name while doing so.
Our country has come so far…
