Reply to "Professor at historically black college questions 'black national anthem'"

Such... ABSOLUTE... ignorance!!!!

And that applies to all those quoted in the article agreeing with him.

Here is a college professor saying that the people singing the song are not singing about themselves...BECAUSE THEY DID NOT IDENTIFY THEMSELVES!!!!!!!!!!!

DID NOT IDENTIFY THEMSELVES?????????????????????????

In it's original 1900...there were 500 African American-American children reciting the words like.... "... 'We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,' signify a tie to slavery and the black power struggle,"..., and this traumatically stressed man concludes that it does not apply to them, BECAUSE THE AUTHOR DID NOT BOTHER TO SAY IT WAS ONLY ABOUT THEM??????????????????????????

AND THEY LET THIS MAN TEACH OUR CHILDREN????????????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Askew, though, maintains there's only one national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner," and that "Lift Every Voice and Sing" could take on a new role: a message of victory for all ethnic groups in the United States.

"We need to consider eliminating this alternative label of 'black national anthem' in order to promote unity," Askew said. "I know people will probably think that I'm a sellout, but I think it is important that African-Americans nationally understand that we should be moving towards racial cohesiveness."

This is a face-to-face example of the conclusions of Dr. DeGruy-Leary.

This man is damn near brain damaged.
