California NAACP wants to remove "Star Spangled Banner" as National Anthem

California NAACP wants Congress to replace ‘racist pro-slavery’ national anthem The California NAACP wants Congress to change the national anthem to another song besides"The Star Spangled Banner

The left-wing NAACP in California wants to dump the national anthem, fantasizing the patriotic tune is somehow racist, according to CBS Sacramento.

Resolution calling for quality education In a Facebook video post, California Hawaii President Alice Huffman said they took a closer look at the national anthem following the kneeling protest of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

"The real intentions got overlooked, and it's become something that's dividing us, and I'm looking for a way to bring us back together", she said.

Huffman is full of it, obviously.

"There are still some people who agree that the national anthem should not be representing all Americans, because at the time it was written, blacks were enslaved", Muwakkil said.

Comments that contain spam, advertising, vulgarity, threats of violence, racism, anti-Semitism, or personal or abusive attacks on other users may be removed and result in a ban.

Target's Fidget Spinners Could Be Poisoning Kids
Target's spokesman failed to comment about why the retailer would sell a product that could be unsafe for adults. A Target representative told The Washington Post the fidget spinners were not marketed to children.

The lyric goes: "no refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave".

Some believe the verse celebrates the death of black American slaves who fought with the British in exchange for their freedom.

"That's an extreme way of doing things", said Kenneth Lu, a veteran living in Davis.

"It won't solve any problem", said veteran John Cox.

The California NAACP is seeking a representative to sponsor the legislation in Congress.

The first resolution calls on Congress to change the anthem, while the second demands a censure of President Trump for his comments bashing National Football League players who participate in the protests.
