California NAACP wants to replace the “Star Spangled Banner” because it’s…racist

She cited the song’s third verse, which is rarely sang

(National SentinelActivism: The California chapter of the NAACP says the national anthem is a “racist” screed and ought to be replaced with something else.

Alice Huffman,  president of the California chapter of the NAACP, said “The Star-Spangled Banner” is “racist” and that it “doesn’t represent our community. It’s anti-black people.”

She cited the song’s third verse, which is rarely sang. It states, “no refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.”

When Francis Scott Key wrote the song while captive aboard a British warship as the fleet fired upon Fort McHenry in 1814, slavery was legal in the U.S.

Key, an amatuer poet from Maryland, first titled his piece, “The Defence of Fort McHenry,” but it was later set to music and became the national anthem.

The California NAACP’s call comes as protests surrounding the national anthem — at sports venues, in entertainment and elsewhere — have become a focal point of the “culture war.”

    We are seeing the beginning of the destruction of all vestiges of America’s founding. First was the Confederate monuments and now our national anthem. Next could be all the Founding memorials including Mt. Rushmore in So. Dskota; the Washington, Lincoln and Jefferson memorials as well as the original founding documents. Everythig Chrstian will be burned down or otherwise demolished. Our beloved “Old Glory” will never again be allowed to unfurl over any building anywhere. The United Nations flag will replace it. You will say: Donald Trump will not allow these things to take place! Don’t be a fool! Trump is part and parcel of all that is happening in America today. His trip to China notwithstanding!!
