    I think that this was a disgrace.

    There were both black and white people in the audience.

    Everyone should have just set back down by the second stanza.

    Yet these fools started clapping at the end. :evil: :cuckoo:

    Life Every Voice is a "black power anthem"? What a ridiculously stupid post.

    There is no American that couldn't sing this sound, and feel that it is equally true for them. Except, maybe, a few atheists.

    She was introduced as the woman who would sign our National Anthem.

    That is what the people stood up for an expected to hear. :doubt:

    I would venture to say that any acting our past military personnel would find this offensive.

    It wasn't a military gathering. It appears to have been a community meeting in Denver, the purposes/goals of the meeting are not made clear. I work a lot in the black community, I understand that they sometimes do things a little differently, but if you read the lyrics of the song, it expresses the same depth of commitment to this country as the national anthem does, in a way that is representative of their history and struggle.

    If she had been introduced as the woman who was going to sing an old Negro spiritual song then I would have no problem.

    But she was brought there and introduced To sing the National Anthem.

    If she could not or would not do that then she should have declined the invitation.
