To the singer - Next time just sing the real National Anthem.
Quit being so self-segregating and in-your-face.

Black national anthem? Do black people have their own country here in the U.S.? Black people seem to forget that they came to the U.S. as slaves mostly because other black people sold them off as slaves back in Africa. Everyone one earth has been a slave to another nation at one point or other, get over it already. It doesn't matter either way, the Spanish have taken over the U.S., anyone ever notice how many Spanish speaking channels there are on regular tv? Nothing personal against black or hispanic people, I hate the entire human race.

I have seen the damage first hand. I see it every day when I walk through the streets of my neighborhood. I see depressed people. I see people with no hope...And I am not saying that these people have been victimized by others. A lot of them have been...But that victimization is in no way comparable to the damage that they inflict on themselves by not choosing to love everyone in the world, and to learn from the world and respect it.
...because of fear of rejection and alienation. There are black people who fear their own people. They fear the social condemnation not to mention the actual physical fear. We have a lot of mistrust in our own culture.
