The so-called “Black Nationwide Anthem” was sung on the Tremendous Bowl on Sunday. I did NOT stand. Did you?
I discover this disgraceful and disgusting. I discover it racist. I discover ot divisive. I discover it offensive and insulting.
Not as a result of I’m white, however as a result of I’m an American.
I grew up in a blue-collar neighborhood in a majority-black city. I’m Jewish. My neighbors had been Italian Catholic and Irish Catholic.
At my highschool on the Bronx borderline in Mt. Vernon, New York, nearly everybody was black. I used to be the minority. I used to be bullied. I used to be attacked and overwhelmed. However I by no means requested for an anthem to rejoice my minority standing.
Why would we rejoice a nationwide anthem for just one group? I believed we had been all People? Ought to there be twenty nationwide anthems earlier than video games? That may take an hour.
Why not a white nationwide anthem? In the event you can have a black anthem, why not a white one? Why can’t I rejoice being white? Why is one racist and the opposite one is simply nice and dandy?
Why not a Jewish nationwide anthem? Blacks make up 12% of America. However Jews make up solely 2%. Aren’t Jews much more of a “minority” than blacks? So, why shouldn’t our minority be celebrated too? Why does just one “minority” qualify?
Why not an Italian nationwide anthem? Or Irish? Or Polish? Or Latino? Or homosexual? Or straight? Or trans?
How come solely black People get to be celebrated. Man is that racist!
Listed here are a number of extra essential questions…
When did USA develop into a “black nation?” Final I checked had been only one nation beneath God. Doesn’t that nation have already got a nationwide anthem?
Can we reside in “America?” Or has the title been modified to “black America?” As a result of if there is no such thing as a nation named “black America” why would there be an anthem only for “black America?” This is not sensible to me.
Would black People be offended if somebody stated that America is about 70% white, so due to this fact all of us reside in “white America.” I feel they’d be fairly darn offended. I’m white and I’d be offended too. This isn’t “my America.” This isn’t “white America.” It belongs to all of us. We’re all People. And there must be just one anthem that represents all of us.
It’s “one for all, and all for one.” Proper?
Thousands and thousands of People really feel just like the NFL simply spit in our face. But nobody within the mainstream media thinks this can be a large story. That’s both weird, or racist.
If the argument is, “You don’t perceive Wayne. Black America is completely different. They skilled distinctive persecution with racism and slavery. They deserve this.”
To start with, two wrongs don’t make a proper. Blacks had been handled badly. All of us agree. Guess what? The NFL simply handled everybody who isn’t black badly. The remainder of us simply skilled racism.
Secondly, the black expertise was horrible, nevertheless it’s not distinctive. My Jewish folks have skilled prejudice and hatred for hundreds of years- together with right here in America. We’ve additionally been enslaved- by Romans and Egyptians.
However now we have skilled one thing far worse than slavery- the Holocaust was about slavery, mass homicide and the tried extinction of our race.
So why isn’t there a “Jewish nationwide anthem” performed at soccer video games? If you wish to play that infantile recreation, “our persecution was worse than your persecution.”
And our persecution was far newer. The Holocaust was solely about 80 years in the past. Slavery in America ended nearly 200 years in the past.
Extra importantly, these days of racism and persecution for blacks are gone (thank God). However watching the nationwide protests because the Hamas mass homicide of Jews in Israel…with protestors screaming demise and genocide to Jews…it’s fairly clear the persecution of Jews remains to be very a lot alive.
However I don’t desire a “Jewish anthem” earlier than soccer video games.
Why would anybody need to divide America like this? Is somebody trying to begin a brand new civil conflict? There shouldn’t be a “black America” or a “white America.” There may be solely America.
Most significantly, why would any CEO need to offend & anger a majority of his personal clients? Nearly all of NFL followers are white. Does the NFL hate its personal white followers?
Is the Commissioner/CEO of the NFL (Roger Goodell) self-hating? Is he full of “white guilt?” Does he need to push back all his followers away who don’t rejoice racism in the direction of whites, and division of our nation?
As a result of he’d be chasing away a lot of the NFL’s followers. And that may be dumb enterprise, wouldn’t it?
I don’t see white America, or black America. I don’t see white soccer gamers, or black gamers. I see People. I see my brothers, my countrymen.
It’s time to retire the “black nationwide anthem” at NFL video games. Except you need to divide America in response to race, or faith, or tribes.
Is that what the NFL desires? I do know I need one nationwide anthem that represents all People. And I’m not standing for the rest.
