“Hey NFL, America only has one national anthem”

Outrage is brewing over the NFL's decision to play what many are calling “the black national anthem” at the start of this year's Super Bowl game.

Called “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” the song was originally written as a poem in 1899 by James Weldon Johnson, then an NAACP executive for 10 years, he said. Today.

“The poem became a song when Johnson's brother, John Rosamond Johnson, composed an instrumental arrangement for it. The song was first performed in 1900 during a celebration of former President Abraham Lincoln. It was sung by a choir of 500 children at her segregated school in Florida,” notes Today.

In times past, the song “became a rallying cry against the realities of lynching, segregation, and discrimination,” but these days, it's mostly seen as divisive and unnecessary given that lynching, segregation, and discrimination have mostly disappeared, except for the “awakening”. ” left handed.

The NFL first committed to playing the song before the start of the season following the violent and deadly Black Lives Matter riots of 2020.

“It has since been sung as part of the pre-game show,” notes Today.

But critics say it has no place in sports, let alone the Super Bowl, because it's a song exclusively for black people, not ALL AMERICANS.

In fact, there is already a song for ALL AMERICANS, and that song is called “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The irony is that Democrats predictably believe that playing the black national anthem will somehow unify the country.

“Making 'Lift Every Voice and Sing' a national anthem would be an act of uniting the country. The gesture itself would be an act of healing. Everyone can relate to this song,” Rep. James Clyburn tweeted in 2021:

However, since then, race relations have only plummeted.

“According to a survey conducted in 2023, 57% of Americans said they thought that race relations in the United States had gotten worse in the past five years, while 23% said that race relations had gotten worse. have remained the same.” Statistics notes

Black national anthem advocates don't help their case by being so nasty on social media platform X to anyone, especially white people, who disagree with them.

Specific case (*Language notice):

Note how one critic accused opponents of being motivated by white supremacy. However, the critic is the one who wants a national event for all Americans (white, black, brown, etc.) to focus exclusively on black people….

One critic summed up the illogic of playing the black national anthem at the Super Bowl pretty well.

“[W]hat if white people said we want our own national anthem. [W]We'll call it the white national anthem. [Y]Don't think they call us white supremacy. [W]hat on black supremacy? [A]are we not all one nation under God? [T]hat is what the national anthem represents,” they wrote.
