Remember when people were conscious enough not to say things like this out loud, knowing that most people would be disgusted? Gee, I wonder what changed? Via Buzzfeed:

When Kansas State's point guard Angel Rodriguez went to the line, a chant of “Where's your green card?” rang out through the crowd. (It can be heard at 2 and 17 seconds in the video.) Reporters on the scene identified it as having come from Southern Mississippi's band. Thankfully it was short lived.

Martha Saunders, president of the University of Southern Mississippi, issued this statement:

"We deeply regret the remarks made by a few students at today’s game. The words of these individuals do not represent the sentiments of our pep band, athletic department or university. We apologize to Mr. Rodriguez and will take quick and appropriate disciplinary action against the students involved in this isolated incident."
