Default Mexicans will be protesting and booing the National Anthem at tonight's NFL game

I heard from a friend down in Houston that Mexicans will be booing and protesting the Anthem tonight. Although I do believe people have the right to express themselves I find it funny that citizens that long to be Americans would protest and boo the anthem. My friend agrees with the protest. Probably because she married a Mexican-American. Curious to see and hear the reaction tonight

Everyone just wants to belong to something so badly. Meanwhile, Texans players were ordered not to drink the water and told they were not allowed to order food delivery...

Because BOO America!!

You'd think they'd be cheering us on since we are taking care of half their country for free.

Wrong futbol.

NFL is desperate for money... they're losing American viewers by the boatload thanks to Kap's protests and Mothers of America's concern for player safety.

Kaepernick has singlehandedly lead to the destruction of the most popular sports league in America.

Social justice fails again.

They told them not to drink their water and eat their food because it's not clean...I don't think they were trying to say that the mexican hotel staff was going to poison their food on purpose because they hate americans.

Ah, gotcha.
But you do sound emotionally invested. Not a good look if you're taking over head admin.

Yeah, I don't think so either lolol

Its just ironic you would boo America for being America, meanwhile the visiting teams are told not to drink the water you drink every day.

Aren't NBA numbers down too? Big mistake for a league to get political.

I'm sure Donald Trump and his cabinet will be reconsidering their decision on building a wall on the border after hearing that 24 year old Mexican National Hector Diaz will be booing the US national anthem in a football match.

I know my opinions on the matter has changed after hearing Hector's take.
