This year’s Super Bowl will feature the singing of Lift Every Voice and Sing, otherwise known as the black national anthem, before the start of this year’s game. The song will be sung before the U.S. national anthem. According to Mashable, “If the Super Bowl is your introduction to national treasure Sheryl Lee Ralph, welcome. The veteran singer-actress is set to take the Super Bowl stage Sunday to perform what is known as the Black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” She’s joined by country singer Chris Stapleton singing the national anthem and R&B star Babyface performing “America the Beautiful.'”

One country, one National Anthem , The Star Spangled Banner. If you feel you need your own anthem , you're in the wrong country.

Celebrating 'blackness; is how The Left ensures that racial division will endure. The Left insists that race is irrelevant-so why is it they push racial quotas in everything? We know why-the just want to keep spreading cognitive differences so we can't tell what's right or wrong anymore.

I'm Black, and I like what the "Black Anthem" says. Having said that, however, this is NOT representative of ALL us us in the U.S. The ONLY anthem which needs to be played at such a massive and diverse gathering is the Star Spangled Banner, period. That particular song represents ALL of us (as it should), not just those of us with pigmentation. This is just another way to divide us. NOT COOL.

Why? Exacerbating long declared illegal racial tensions? Is that the object? I'm white, and objected to a black friend's (Butch) being subjected to racist bantering during the Nashville Metropolitan Open fifty years ago when he was over a winning putt from four feet. He made the putt. Aha ha ha. My friend won the tournament! The fellows, probably KKK, who objected to his winning putt, were worth fighting. The crowd separated us. I would have fought them to the death. Butch was worth that then, and much more. Friends are friends.

Preceded by the President's interview on Fox Soul (which I'd never heard of until two days ago). Note, too, that "America the Beautiful" will also be sung - the song that many want to take the place of the current National Anthem (which is just too darned hard to sing, ya know). Thanks for posting - I was considering watching. Not any more.

Not sure if this is the right forum but here goes. Its so obvious the nation wants to get rid of all the white people. Now, what do back men want? A white woman, resulting in biracial children. Eventually all of those relationships will backfire & the children will be white. I know mixed race marriages whose grandchildren are as white as I am. Everyone should be proud of their heritage & just quit breeding it out of existence.

Well, I guess they have finally "Arrived". They have been clawing their way into everyone's life for years and years. When they finally were able to make folks believe BLM was Legit, they exploded in Shirts, Hoodies and Banners everywhere (Nobody talks about the FOUNDERS buying Multi-Million Mansions with the Money they collected from Woke Businesses). NOW we find they have their Own National Anthem. I was brought up to believe ONE NATION, UNDER GOD, means something. Apparently I'm too old to understand when that no longer meant regardless of Race or Creed! I guess I should have seen this coming when Teachers demanded no American Flags in their Class rooms and no more reciting the Pledge at the beginning of the Day! That was a Clue! Sad to think Our Grandchildren and Great-Grands will probably grow up not respecting Our Flag, and what it stands for, at all!! I will apply the Mute Button at the appropriate time before the Super Bowl! Shame on the NFL for allowing such a thing to happen in Our Country, but what can we expect from Those who chose to take a Knee with the Black Athletes!

I haven't watched a Super Bowl, or any NFL games for that matter, since this whole kneeling insanity started, and the NFL showed how "woke" and evil they could become in kowtowing to the racist thugs in the BLM movement!!! Don't have any plans to break that streak today. It was nice to hear that both QB's are proud Christians, though their names don't mean anything to me.

Just one of the reasons I will not be watching. We have ONE national Anthem. Just one. ForALL Americans! If blacks have to have a different anthem, they should take that anthem with them and start their own country. We are allAmericans. One Nation Under God with Liberty and Justice foe all.

Will a white person sing the black national anthem? Black people do not put their hands on their hearts, or stop doing what they're doing when the National Anthem is played. Very rarely, one may do it. It's usually a cop or a vet. Very sad. I see it time and time again.

FBI agents conducted two searches at the University of Delaware as part of an investigation into President Joe Biden's handling of classified documents and there is some mystery about what they found. Agents reportedly carried out the searches at the college, which is Biden's alma mater, in late January and early February, according to CBS News, but the documents removed from the premises by the FBI did not appear to have classified markings. Agents retrieved materials from two locations and the FBI is in the process of reviewing them. The University of Delaware houses material from Biden's time in the U.S. Senate and

Sens. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) are demanding an investigation into reports that U.S.-backed entities funded a foreign think tank that is trying to blacklist and defund conservative media outlets. The Washington Examiner reported: The Global Engagement Center and the National Endowment for Democracy, two State Department-backed entities, have granted $665,000 combined to the Global Disinformation Index, which is feeding conservative website blacklists to advertising companies. Now, Rubio and Johnson are calling for an inquiry into how taxpayer dollars have flowed to GDI, which intends to shut down disfavored speech.

Joe Biden raised eyebrows on Wednesday when he referred to the first black governor of Maryland as 'boy'. Biden, 80, was in the town of Lanham to speak to members of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. He referenced the newly-elected 44-year-old governor Wes Moore, a former college football star, and used a word which is seen as a derogative term for black men. 'You got a h*** of a new governor in Wes Moore, I tell ya,' Biden told the union workers. 'He's the real deal, and the boy looked like he could still play. He's got some guns on him.'

South Park took aim at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on Wednesday night with an episode depicting the Prince and Princess of Canada - a young royal couple who loudly beg for privacy, while drawing attention to themselves. The red-headed prince and his floppy-hatted wife are seen promoting the prince's book - Waaagh - whose cover strongly resembles Harry's memoir Spare. They storm off a TV show after being challenged about their motives. The couple then move to South Park, with the princess declaring: 'If we moved here, people would think we're really serious about wanting to be normal.'

And now Nikki says she wants to be president, announcing her doomed candidacy with hilariously hackneyed and overwrought fanfare ("Now is the time for a strong and proud America!"), though everyone with half a cerebral cortex can see that she's really just trying to position herself as the vice-presidential nominee when either Donald Trump or Ron DeSantis gets the nomination.

Local and state authorities evacuated all residents within one mile of the crash and started a controlled burn of the volatile chemicals to decrease the risk of an explosion. Vinyl chloride, a carcinogen used to manufacture PVC, was released from five train cars last week in the form of massive plumes of dark smoke visible throughout eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania.

In twin indictments last month, McGonigal was charged with taking secret cash payments from a former Albanian intelligence officer, holding secret meetings with Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama, and attempting to remove top Kremlin oligarch Oleg Deripaska from a US sanctions list.

A Georgia State Senator referred to Justice Clarence Thomas, the second black man to serve on the United States Supreme Court, by the racial slur “Uncle Tom” this week, presumably over his conservative leanings. The racist comment occurred on Tuesday as the Georgia State Senate voted 32-20 along party lines to create a statue on Capitol grounds dedicated to Justice Clarence Thomas, a native of the Peach State. In the leadup to the vote, Sen. Emmanuel Jones (D) likened Thomas to a slave that “sold his soul to the slave master.” “There’s a whole laundry list of positions that Justice Thomas has taken that I find offensive,” Jones said, adding:

Since President Trump left office, many of the “trustworthy” media outlets have created a talking point that is now held by a minority, yet noticeable number of Conservative Americans. The belief is “DeSantis is Trump, without the baggage.” This group supported President Trump’s policies and felt he did a tremendous job as president, but now feel the baggage that came with Trump would not be present with Ron DeSantis. Many have taken this a step further and believe this baggage would give DeSantis (or others) a better chance of winning in a general election against the Democrat nominee than President Trump.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.  — A group of Catholic women claims they were denied Communion at an Englewood church for wearing rainbow-colored face masks. Sally Odenheimer said it was an effort to show support for Maggie Barton, an LGBTQ teacher fired from the church’s affiliated Catholic school. Barton claims she was fired from All Souls Catholic School in Englewood after the Archdiocese of Denver learned of her same-sex relationship.The Archdiocese said she was fired because she violated her contract, which includes “refraining from taking any public position or conducting himself or herself in a manner that is contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church.”

There were two things that I missed during Sunday’s Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona, between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles. The first was Kansas City’s game-winning drive, which saw kicker Harrison Butker seal the underdog Chiefs’ 38-35 victory with a last-second field goal. My inattention was unintentional; my daughter, in the throes of a stomach flu that’s currently working its way through the family, decided to decorate our floor as the game came down to the wire. Que sera sera. The second was pop star Rihanna’s halftime show — or at least the audio portion. This was wholly intentional, since I’ve heard Rihanna’s music before

U.S. intelligence officials were tracking the spy balloon that was shot down earlier this month since it lifted off from the south coast of China, U.S. officials said Tuesday. According to U.S. officials, after takeoff, the spy balloon drifted east in the direction of Guam and Hawaii and then went north to Alaska and entered U.S. airspace on Jan. 28. Given the path, it's possible that the balloon was blown off course by weather, but U.S. officials said that once it came south over the continental United States, it was being controlled by China. The tracking of the balloon was first reported by The Washington Post. China has insisted

U.S. military and intelligence agencies tracked the Chinese spy balloon for nearly a week before it violated American airspace last month, according to a new report. As the U.S. monitored the balloon, it appeared headed for the U.S. territory of Guam. But the balloon was seemingly blown off course and instead ended up over Alaska’s Aleutian Islands before ultimately floating over the continental United States, the Washington Post reported. U.S. officials are considering the possibility that China did not intend to send the spy balloon over the continental United States, but instead took advantage of the balloon being blown off course to surveil sensitive locations in Montana.
