Picture of Curry Lake refusing to stand for the “Black National Anthem” at the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl was played in Arizona this year, so it’s no surprise that America’s first Patriot, Curry Lake, was in attendance. However, he was not happy with what happened during the festival. Mainly, the NFL’s “Black National Anthem” was played at big games. Many see it as very divisive and another way to divide our nation. After all, that’s what Democrats do best, right?

So, what exactly is the “Black National Anthem”?

Well, it’s a 19th century hymn called, “Every Voice and Sing” that has been called the “Black National Anthem.”

It was performed by actress and singer Sheryl Lee Ralph before the American National Anthem and “America the Beautiful” as part of the game’s opening ceremony.

Here is part of that performance:

Fox News reported that the NFL’s pre-Super Bowl festivities will include a rendition of the black national anthem for the third year in a row. Even with “Lift Every Voice and Sing” on the league’s docket for weeks, the song’s inclusion stirred controversy on social media.

Sheryl Lee Ralph, star of the comedy series “Abbott Elementary,” will perform the song at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Country music star Chris Stapleton will sing the national anthem and R&B artist Babyface will sing “America the Beautiful.”

But it was the inclusion of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” that had NFL fans talking early Sunday.

Of course, the music stirred up controversy like:

When “Black Anthem” was played, Curry Lake didn’t stand up, and someone snapped a photo of it and it went viral.

Here is the picture that went viral:

Curry stood for the US national anthem. Which, however, many say was the best performance ever…

But what do you think about this debate? Do you believe that there should be two songs?

And why stop there?

Why doesn’t every race and so-called “gender” get their own music? Then we can spend 16 hours playing song after song so that everyone feels “represented”.

Wouldn’t that be fun?

I think the division and hate by the left is wrong, and is turning this country into a powder keg, and it shouldn’t be that way.
