Sergio Romo – A Latino Who Knows How To Dress with “I Just Look Illegal” T-Shirt

Right on for Sergio Romo! Not only did he do a great job as a relief pitcher to help the San Francisco Giants sweep the Detroit Tigers, but this son of Mexican parents has no problem throwing heat on another issue: “immigration.”  Sergio wore a tee-shirt with the words, “I JUST LOOK ILLEGAL.” Those of us who are Latino can relate to this statement as many of us have been a victim to the ignorance of many who have referred to us as an immigrant just because of our looks, our dress, or as has happened to me on occasion because I had been speaking Spanish.

Thank you Sergio for speaking your mind with a simple but effective gesture. Now if only other Latino baseball players, or sports celebrities would learn from this.
