According to CBS DFW, the Texas Rangers are investigating an alleged racial incident of a Hispanic family while they were at the ball game. Jessica Romero claims that a man, who was sitting behind them, complained, according to the post, that they were ‘surrounded by illegal immigrants.’
During a family picture, the man allegedly put up his middle finger. Ramon Romero, who is Jessica’s husband, is reportedly calling it ‘blatant racism.’
“It used to be hidden, but now it’s more in the open,” he said. “And that’s scary, because before you go somewhere and you’re not expecting racism at a ballgame.”
The Rangers said they are investigating the alleged incident. Also, the team has offered them tickets to an upcoming game.
“So at tonight’s game this couple sat behind us. We don’t usually sit in this section but I bought these tickets at the last minute so we weren’t in our usual seats,” Romero said in a Facebook post of the alleged incident. “At every game Munch always likes to take a selfie when we get to our seats. As we are taking the pic I hear the guy say “let me see how I can f*** up their pic” not realizing he was talking about us until I saw the pic.
“He made it perfectly clear during the 2nd inning that he is not a fan of Hispanics. And he just so happen to have a Hispanic family (us) sitting in front of him and another one sitting directly behind him. During the 2nd inning the little boy behind him who looked to be about Nomar’s age kicked the back of his chair. And for the next 3 innings I had to hear him complain about all the illegal immigrants that were surrounding him at the game. That he should kick little Speedy Gonzalez all the way back to Mexico for kicking his seat. That Trump needs to hurry and build the wall and send all these illegals back so they won’t be kicking his seat. We left during the 5th inning. Sadly this is not the first or the last time we will ever experience this kind of racism.”
