I still don't see why " No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave" was even part of the song since it was not "hirelings and slaves" they were fighting, but the British Army. However, there is record of Keys often representing Blacks and slaves in court cases, etc. [I think that's maybe how the rumor started that he was Black] So, I'm still trying figure him out.

There's a whole bunch of them that are "black"; they don't know; we don't know; someone knows though. They're swinging silently, by neck, back in those damn family trees.

Remember when Jackie Robinson said the same thing as Colin Kaepernick ... pretty much? By Thandisizwe Chimurenga 2016/08/31 · 15:24 The “Colin Kaepernick Caper” continues to roll right along, gathering no moss whatsoever. Since Kaepernick’s refusal to stand for the playing of the national anthem at a San Francisco 49ers preseason game last week, think pieces on patriotism, the right to dissent and protest, the racism in the “Star-Spangled Banner” and even Kaepernick’s football record have...

If Kaepernick wasn't making millions of dollars and was an alcoholic on the street sitting on a curb while the Star Spangled Banner was playing they wouldn't give two shits whether the drunk stood or not. Why should any of us stand saluting a flag, when if you're walking back to your car after the game, a cop could shoot you in the back then and there? Blacks can get slaughtered anywhere/everywhere at the drop of a hat in this country and the killer can walk away scott free. What are we...

Can't beat that logic! I have noticed many Black parents are accommodating their teens by allowing them to entertain their friends at home. People are setting up nicer home theaters and throwing more back yard parties, parents don't want their kids running all over the city, they know young Blacks are being profiled. I can truly say I have never seen a car with white youths stopped and searched by the police but I have driven by dozens of cars with black and brown youths stopped and searched...

Cops set up "road checks" an entrances and exists of Black neighborhoods and predominately Black apartments complexes.

Why we should all buy Kaepernick’s jersey Opinion by David A. Love | September 4, 2016 at 11:16 AM Filed in: News , Opinion Co lin Kaepernick is a hero for sticking out his neck and standing up—or sitting down—against racial violence . He, like so many of us, is sick and tired of the police killing our people and putting their hands on our black girls and boys. And because of that, we should be out there buying his jersey in record numbers and rocking that number 7 . I’m talking about black...

Will 100 Black Athletes Risk Everything to Back Colin Kaepernick — Or Does He Stand Alone? By David Love - September 2, 2016 By sitting down during the national anthem and standing up for justice, Colin Kaepernick is testing the limits of the Black athlete to engage in effective social protest. Ultimately, this is a test for the Black community, should it wish to take on the challenge. If Kaepernick stands alone on this, then he will certainly fall, and Black people in the aggregate stand to...

Like that! May we be exalted and say yeah while WTF goes off in all directions. I liked Hillary calling Shit's followers - "the deplorables". Now if we can get to the point of finally calling out racism and naming Anti-American racist cops and racist actors as deplorable domestic terrorists, that would be real. Meanwhile, Shit's fan-boy David Duke literally defines anti-racism as anti-white. Everybody vote too!
