Thanks to the black empowerment policies of a half-Caucasian criminal, traitor and political hoax, known as Barack Obama, black activists and neo-com Democrats see racism everywhere. If black and white televisions were still in use, they would find them to be racist and want them banned or changed. They also see anything and everything historical as racist. They are unable to understand that the past is the past and that you can’t change history, but they keep trying to change it anyway.
For the past year or more, they’ve been tearing down Civil War statues, memorials, plaques and flags as if somehow, removing important historical memorials will make the past go away, but it doesn’t. Instead of remembering the past so the same mistakes are not repeated, they want the past forgotten so they cannot only repeat it, but switch places so that they are the slave masters.
They’ve also made important issues like national security, the economy, sports and virtually every aspect of life as also being racist. When President Donald Trump tried to take measures to secure the border, they called him a racist. When Trump wanted to take measures to reduce the threat of terrorist attacks here in the United States, they called him a racist and made it an issue of race.
If a police officer arrests a black person for a crime, it’s suddenly a matter of race. If the black person resists arrest and threatens the officer who is forced to use force in return, it’s called a racist response and the officer is to blame. When a white home owner shoots a black home intruder, black activists and many Democrats try to paint the homeowner as being a racist.
America has become a nation of deeply divided racism and much of it is directly due to Barack Obama and his racist views and policies.
Now, black racist activists in the NAACP and some Democrats are claiming that the National Anthem is racist. The attack on the National Anthem began in 2016 by a black Christian turned black activist due to the influence of his black activist and racist Muslim girlfriend. Ever since, a growing number of football players and others, including a black teacher, have been kneeling in protest against the National Anthem.
Rep. Danny Davis (D-IL) has been in the US House for 20 years. Davis, who is black, has joined the racist mantra of the liberal left black activists in calling for the National Anthem to be changed:
“Well, you know, one of the things about the Constitution that our forefathers wrote, and basically, there were none of our foremothers that were there. There were none of our fore-sisters there. There are changes that can take place and there is room to change.”
Alice Huffman, of the California NAACP called the National Anthem racist and said:
“…[it] doesn’t represent our community. It’s anti-black people.”
Huffman and others are calling for the National Anthem to be changed.
Normally, only the first verse of the Star-Spangle Banner is sung and there is absolutely nothing racist in the first verse. However, there are a couple of lines in the 3rd and 4th verses that they are objecting to. Here are the words to the last two verses of the National Anthem that is drawing criticism:
“And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!”
“Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: ‘In God is our trust.’
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!” [Emphasis mine]
Yes, Francis Scott Key wrote this poem in 1814, during a time in our nation’s history when slavery existed. He was a lawyer, author and poet who did own slaves. In his will, he left his slaves to his wife so they would continue to serve her during her life but, he also wished that she would set them free, even though he didn’t.
Should those lines or words be changed or are black activists like the NAACP and Davis going to extremes?
