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

California NAACP wants to remove

One of the resolutions according to the Bee, was to support the removal of the anthem, while the other is an effort to get former player Colin Kaepernick onto a an National Football League team.

"The Star-Spangled Banner" has been the USA national anthem since 1931 after former President Herbert Hoover signed a congressional resolution making it the official song of the country. "It should never have been there, and just like we didn't have it until 1931, it won't kill us if it goes away". "We are not anti-flag; however when the Star-Spangled Banner was written, it did not include us, African-Americans".

"It's racist", she said.

The chapter reportedly circulated two resolutions to lawmakers in the Golden State that said the song is "one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-Black songs in the American lexicon". "It doesn't represent our community. It's anti-black people", Ms. Huffman told CBS13 Sacramento.

Patrons at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in West Sacramento disagreed. "I believe that any individual that hears the song, that believes in the song should take the time to understand what the song is really saying", said NAACP Regional Director Ronald Hasson. "Whether there's some kind of little flaw in the context of what this is, I don't see it that way".

Kim also served chocolate-coated dried persimmons after picking the fruit and hanging them up to dry weeks in advance. Now imagine you're the First Lady of the United States and you just did it on worldwide television.

"It won't solve any problem", said veteran John Cox. "He blew it out of proportion", Huffman said of the president's comments.

A home and a country, should leave us no more?

A separate resolution by the California NAACP calls on Congress to censure President Trump for his remarks about firing those who don't stand for the anthem.

The California NAACP has not yet had any legislative sponsors for its resolutions, but one legislator is already speaking out against the proposal to ban the anthem.
