The black national anthem facts...

“Lift Every Voice and Sing" was publicly performed first as a poem as part of a celebration of Abraham Lincoln's birthday by Johnson's brother John. In 1919, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) dubbed it "the Negro national hymn" for its power in voicing a cry for liberation and affirmation for African-American people.


The song is a prayer of thanksgiving for faithfulness and freedom, with imagery evoking the biblical Exodus from slavery to the freedom of the "promised land". "Lift Every Voice and Sing" is featured in 39 different Christian hymnals, and is sung in churches across North America.

Probably 75% of you whiners about this have sung it in church before...LOL.

Ok fine , then call it something other than the black national anthem. That’s where the rub comes.

You are the whiner orange. You said "probably 75%" is based on nothing. This is your assumption. You and me know what happens when you assume things. What you also said is based on early Christian slavery.

We do know what happens when you assume, you say that 130,000 some odd people die from a virus that probably hasn't killed a quarter of what they have said. At the end of this year I want to know how many people have died all together bc every other year when there isn't a "pretend pandemic" happening about 2.3 million people die a year. When we get the final tally we'll all see that they have been classifying every death as a covid death and I'll imagine a lot of people who have lost everything an having to feed their families through charities won;t be to happy. We're being told a lie and not many give a ###.n

My wife tested positive 3 times for COVID, and we lost her grandmother to the disease. Yes, it was a COVID death. So until you have any idea what you're talking about. Why don't you shut the #### up and go #### yourself you ##########.

So what if its called that? If black people don't feel they were properly represented in the "National Anthem" why do you care so much that they sing another song that makes them feel included? Do you know the lyrics to the other verses in the Star Spangled Banner?

Native Americans allowed and helped them settle in the new land...next thing you know the new settlers are mowing down sacred lands to gain the rights to the mighty Mississippi River...and so on....and so on...and so on.

Not sure, the president did recently call Lincoln’s ‘end results’ as ‘questionable.’

About 8:00...apparently Christianity is a part of the generational trauma that was inflicted...we can virtually find an infinite list of "but this" or "if that" as long as everybody remains perpetually offended.

Apparently that's where we are. 50 years later, the libs are promoting 'separate but equal'.

I have numerous friends who like to quote George Santayana: " those who do not learn from the past...blah blah." The problem is that none of us learn from the past, so it WILL be repeated. The only question is, will we learn any more the second time than we did the first?

If libs are promoting 'separate but equal', (the guiding principle of segregation)this whole BLM thing has set our attitudes on racial unity back to pre-Civil Rights days.

Except the conservatives would stand with Thurgood Marshall, and the libs would stand with George Wallace.

They are also going to play the National Anthem so where is
the hurt. Play both, I don't believe anyone will be hurt. I
don't see where anyone is giving up anything. Be happy, enjoy
life because it's short.

The NFL said they were only going to play the song on the
first games along with the National Anthem.

There is only ONE national anthem

The other is a song.

Play it, don’t play it, it matters not to me.

But pandering and dividing the racial lines by claiming to have two national anthems is not a good idea.


A National Anthem represents a nation.

If some people want a separate nation, perhaps that can be arranged.

Actually play all 3 stanzas of the national anthem and you'll see how racist the lyrics are.....there is a reason only the 1st stanza is sung....the other two, ugh.... There's no prejudicial undertones in Lift every voice....the star spangled banner, can't say the same.....

and the fact that there has to be a black national anthem should be eye opening....if everything was all good, there's no need for separate anything....yet, here we are......

it needs an anthem?

here's what I see:

Racist Live Matter
Segregation
Cultural coercion and violence


Sing all the heck you want - it doesn't change who you are.

The day you start talking about "Equal Lives Matter", then I'll be behind you 100%.

Sing whatever you want in church. One National Anthem for "One nation, under God"... Crap like this is going to bring a Civil War 2...

You ever read the second stanza of the national anthem?

Read it and you will understand why black people felt the need to have their own national anthem.


I find it very interesting...

that a segment of the population that extols singling-out people on the basis of race seem to go out of their way to do just that.
