    California NAACP Calls Star-Spangled Banner Racist.

    Editorial Note: Californias NAACP has launched a campaign to remove The Star-Spangled Banner as Americas national anthem because it is one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon. The organization expressed support for NFL player Colin Kaepernick, who launched the recent movement to kneel for the national anthem before sports events. The following is a reprint of an August 2016 Daily Signal article about why the song was beloved by former slave and abolitionist Frederick Douglass.

    National Football League player Colin Kaepernick created a stir on Friday when he refused to stand for the national anthem at the start of a preseason game. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback cited the prevalence of racism and oppression in America as the primary reasons he sat during the playing of the song.

    The Bay Area football star has been fading over the last few years and hell likely be doing a lot of sitting this seasonfor the national anthem or otherwise. But Kaepernicks protest has initiated a national debate over patriotism and respect for the American flag.

    The Star-Spangled Banner was written by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812; it was officially adopted as the national anthem in 1931 and has been a staple at sports events for more than a century. The song is filled with martial and patriotic references, finishing with a stanza that makes an ode to America as the land of the free, and the home of the brave.

    Were tempted to suggest a conspiracy here but its just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply cant conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    California NAACP Calls ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ ‘Racist.’ Here’s Why Frederick Douglass Loved It.
    You mean the NAACP National Association for the Advancement of "Colored People".

    The people who hate to be called Colored?

    What a pack of racist Buffoons that is. That and the Congressional Black Caucus.
    Two of the most racist organizations on the Planet.
