And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

A Hot Mess of Really Stupid People: National Anthem Sparks Racist Tweets

Once again I'm stuck between a "Hot Mess" of "Stupid People".  I swear, some people have nothing better to do with their lives.

Not sure if any of you watch America's Got Talent.  Ryan and I do, so we clearly know the 10 year-old Mariachi singer, Sebastian De La Cruz, who sang the National Anthem during the SPURS game last night.  Well, even though the little lad is American, it didn't stop the racism from coming out.  These idiots clearly do not know they're ancestors were immigrants themselves or slaves at one point.  The following images are courtesy of publicshaming.tumblr.com

“#GoHome.” He’s already home. He lives in San Antonio. The same San Antonio where the majority of the population is Mexican.

OK THERE, “THE GREAT WHITE.”

“I’m highly upset that THIS MEXICAN KID is singing the anthem.” lmao. Wait a few years Grace and tell us how you feel when the majority of the country is Hispanic. I look forward to hearing from you then!

The stupidity continues after the jump...

San Antonio may already be your own personal hell if that’s how you feel about Mexicans, Blake.

Correction: YOU ain’t. All of the United States ain’t racist white males like you, Thomas.

lmao, DESTIN WHITE. If “what has the world come to” is your reaction a little Mexican boy singing the anthem, just you wait! Hint: your world won’t be WHITE.

And, now, for my favorite tweets: people asking why is this Mexican/illegal/foreigner/etc. singing “OUR/MY ANTHEM”…

Why can't people just be people?? I just can't understand why the measure of a man has to depend on who their family is, who they love, where they were born, what color they are, etc. it's sad that those things count for more than their character, integrity, and actions.

Well said Bradley, I couldn't agree more.
