"And where is that band who so vauntingly swore, That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion A home and a Country should leave us no more? Their blood has wash'd out their foul footstep's pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave, And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave". You won't hear those words during Whitney Houston's historic rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.  These words have been edited out but they capture the essence of the United States national anthem.  Francis Scott Key the author of the Star Spangled Banner was a racist.  He was a slave owner and as an attorney he prosecuted abolitionist.  Yet all across the United States Black Americans stand for the national anthem some with our hand on our heart and some without; oblivious to the origins of that song.

Blacks are the most patriotic Americans you will ever find…
