I was gonna say...

A) that from the quotes listed , that’s not what they are saying.. since even the quote listed only says “it wouldn’t kill us if it was removed..”

Not exactly an absolute statement. .. lol


B) that is only one chapter of the naacp.. which is prob 1/300th of the naacp..


THAT SAID !!

I had no idea that extremely racist verse was originally included.. that makes it a valid argument imho.

When was it removed?? Before being adopted or once we decided to stop being openly racist ??

What do they want to replace it with?



It would have to be some strongly worded. I propose Brickhouse:





This is stupid and should be treated as such. Even in the line that they have a problem with it's INCLUSIVE not discriminatory. What? Can't use the word "slave" anymore? Deny history?

Second verse is much about wine (German), women (German)...


What the hell is wrong with that? I would live in a country that is based on wine and women.

If the anthem was found to have previously read..

The two ain’t equal, but I do agree in principle.. that’s not sarcasm lol

Guys they are only really asking for everyone to not take them seriously.

Just comply.

Wanna cry about it a little more?

No way they remove the SBB as the national anthem. Anyone who thinks a single chapter of the NAACP has that much power is delusional.

Sensationalistic BS has overrun this once great site.

What are they planning to replace it with? Ol Man River, or maybe something by Beyoncé?

I'd be okay with an Ol Dirty Bastard anthem.

"Oooh baby I like it raaaaaaw"

If we're going to play the "what if" game, then what if I had super powers and could have x-ray vision and fly?

Ahhh...... Every night I go to sleep thinking that the world cannot get any more ridiculous, and nearly every morning I am proven wrong. Can't wait for tomorrow.

I see no problem with pointing out sensational stupidity. The fact that any energy has been put into this shows that some people has a serious problem with reality.

I think an association for only colored people is racist, we should treat them like the KKK.



No truer words have been spoken....Every group that only caters to one group is racist, bigoted and just plain wrong. I never understood how people don't see that. How are these groups any different from the KKK, Black Panther Party, Arian Nation, La Raza etc....

Because they don’t have even remotely the body count?? Maybe??

I agree they ended up being counterproductive, but those groups are not created equal..

Why does ANYONE CARE what any sort of group or politician from California has to say anymore?

Seriously, They are about as disconnected from reality as Jeff Sessions, when he said "KKK were fine people, until I found out some of them smoke the pot".

Don't they always talk about succeeding form the country? Can't we let them do that yet? My god, they are off in their own little world

Plus I noticed you didn’t disagree, because you know that is exactly what would happen.
