This is the land of the Indians and home of diversity, not white people. Indians had it stolen from thenm by whites. Slavery, like Will Sessoms said, was the white man's biggest sin. We need to change or at least get rid of the bigoted National anthem.

oh say can you see by the dawn's early light what so proudly we hail at the twilights last gleaming whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilious fights over the ram parts we watched were so galantly streaming and the rockets red glare the bombs bursting in air gave proof through the night that our flag was still there oh say does that star spangled banner yet wave over the land of the free and the home of the brave

which part is racist?

I always thought the the song was a waste of time before games. It has stupid lyrics if you really read them, written by white bigots. It should be done away with at ALL public events and by Law, no public school should be allowed to play it. Will Sessoms needs to step up and do away with it at public VB events.

We live in an evolving World Order. The Constitution is outdated and like guns, 2nd Amendment, need to be changed. As for past songs during History, I see no need for them as well. We have more important things than singing some dusty lyrics. Let's evolve;

Written by white bigots? Really? Got proof? Or are you just another gutless race-baiting poverty pimp? It would appear so. Go Away, smelly cockroach!!

BS. We don't need Neanderthal stooges like you. The concept of rights and liberties is lost on a bigot like you.

The 2nd amendment was designed to prevent tyranny. In countries such as England, Australia and Japan guns have been banned and there is no tyranny in those countries. America needs to follow their lead and ban the private ownership of firearms. Americans are tired of their innocent children being massacred by NRA gun nuts. President Obama, America BEGS you. Please begin the process of banning firearms in our country so our children can be safe once again. Don't let the 20 children massacred in Newtown, Conn. to have died in vain.

In a sense the Constitution did evolve and change. Do you remember the Bill of Rights? Historically the Constitution has been amended 27 times.

A simple fact check of the lyrics will reveal the third verse/paragraph;

"...No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:..."

Unfortunately most folks lack the knowledge that that verse refers to those held as "slaves" that wanted or did fight on the side of the British for the promise of freedom. History reveals that this verse was in response to that scenario.
So if "slave" was synonymous with so called "Black" folks, then yes it is racism. If "slave" was not, then it is merely insensitive but not necessarily racist.
