Cultural confusion

 

Odd that some Americans resented the Mexican-American boy singing our national anthem (NBA Finals coverage) in mariachi clothing when, at the same time, we are so proud of our Western cowboys’ accomplishments on horseback.

They took virtually all their riding, lassoing and herding skills from the early Southwestern Mexican horsemen.
