I Prayed have prayed
Our Father, give us unity in America. Heal the racial divide, and bring us peace.

Why do we need a “black national anthem?” Is the performance of this anthem truly what America needs, or will it bring more harm than good?

From Front Page Magazine. The NFL has announced that for the fourth year in a row, the so-called black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” will be performed at the Super Bowl.

Who is praying on the wall?

 

It appears we’ve come full circle since the 2004 Democratic National Convention when then-Illinois State Sen. Barack Obama said: “Yet even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us. … There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America. … We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.” …

The national anthem is also the black/white/Asian/Hispanic national anthem. It is the national anthem of every citizen.

The country, including the sports world, has come a long way. There was a time when black quarterbacks were a rarity. … Black would-be coaches faced the same bigotry and discrimination. Today, the league and the public would not tolerate anti-black racism, and many a career — whether player, coach, or broadcaster — has been damaged, if not ended, over racist comments or comments perceived as racist. This is not your grandfather’s America. …

When New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft introduced his freshly hired coach to the media, Kraft said: “ … I chose the best head coach for this organization. He happens to be a man of color. But I chose him because I believe he’s best to do the job.”

But his new coach, Jerod Mayo, said: “ … I do see color because I believe if you don’t see color, you can’t see racism. … It goes back to whatever it is, Black, white, yellow, it really doesn’t matter, but it does matter so we can try to fix the problem that we all know we have.”

The problem we all know we have? …

What happens if at least some players reject the narrative that blacks remain victims and consider the singing of the black national anthem at the Super Bowl divisive? …

It’s not a national anthem.

You all can thank people like Barak Obama and organizations like U.S. Democrat Party for intentionally trying to perpetuate racial division. And of course one of their goals is to keep advancing the notion of “victimhood.” Always the victim. AND DON’T FORGET THIS: Joe Biden said (paraphrasing) “If you are black and you don’t vote for me…,then you are not black.” I’ll never, never, never…not ever understand how a “born again” person can cast a vote for a DEMOCRAT. That party platform perpetually pushes racism mantra, unborn child sacrifice, the LGBTQAI+ perverted worldview, and hate for America. No wonder there are (2) Anthems. Soon there will be dozens of the Biden Administration and Democrats have their way! Matthew 7:21-23,

We are all “Americans “ and need no other anthem to separate White,Black or any other ethnic groups. Those who what is next , a hispanic or Asian national anthem. Ban all nationality anthems other than our original anthem and accept all ethnicities as brothers and sisters, ALL true American Patriots under one God, one Flag and one great country, 🇺🇸. All who accept and believe in God know we are all equal all Patriots, all Americans who love and support one another. Do not be divided by those who allow “Wokeism” amongst us.

I agree with person above. There is no black and white America. It is the US of A that we all belong to. The national anthem is for all of us.
We need to co.e together and stop the racism.

Oh my goodness, Lord help our people. This is another ploy to divide us. We are all Americans and we all stand up for the USA. Love one another, life will be a lot better if you do.

It’s simple. United we stand – Divided we fall.
We are citizens of the UNITED States of America. When we focus on one particular color we are not contributing to UNITY.

Heavenly Father,
I believe this grieves you as much as it grieves all of our hearts. Please help those contributors to this issue become color blind and to see each person as one who is fearfully and wonderfully made by You.

Well then, to be fair and balanced, we should have an Asian National Anthem, A Hispanic national Anthem, a Native American National Anthem, etc., etc. NOT!!! Either we are “one nation, UNDER GOD, indivisable, with liberty and justice for all” or we’re all just blowing smoke. Rather than “political correctness”, how about some common sense correctness.

A “black” national anthem is disgusting and propels and promotes racism and division, all thanks to the Left, white-hating blacks and Communicrat mouthpieces.

We have come a long ways toward racial and other kinds of equality in the USA. The governments, city, state, and federal keep making a big deal about differences and the news media is a BIG helper to continue and enlarge these racial divisions! It is a small percentage of people doing this and we need to avoid their works and pray for them and their victims!

Lord wake up the Christians especially the non white minorities to see that the anthem is be used by Satan to divide this nation. We all come from one Father that is you God, and Jesus came to save all of human kind. Unite us now more than ever before and give is discernment. IJN

A black national anthem ignores those of all nationalities, except black, what happened to the oriental, Native America, Latinos, and those of pale ethnicities. I believe there is only 1 race, the human race, which was created by God, there are differences in skin colors but we all are created by the same loving God. I can understand the problems with the Star- Spangled Banner, there have been people trying to get that changed for years. Considering the tune was originally used as a drinking song I can understand that. I would prefer God Bless America

Since “Lift Every Voice and Sing” is a Christian hymn, I do not see what the protest is about. Unless they have changed the words, it is actually more God-glorifying that the “Star -Spangled Banner”.

    The protest is about those persons and their mechanisms such as this “anthem” supporting and promoting division and separation.

We definitely do not need a Black National Anthem. It’s interesting that when Barack Obama ran for President the first time many Black politicians said that he wasn’t “Black enough” because he is bi-racial. The same could be said of bi-racial QB Patrick Mahomes…
After some consideration I have decided to turn the TV broadcast on at the beginning of the 4th quarter. It may sound like a weird protest, but when you vote with your pocketbook, people listen (and they do keep track of how many people are watching the coveted TV commercials).
