Congressman Rages After Super Bowl Fans Refused to Stand for ‘Negro National Anthem’

Congressman Steve Cohen – the Democrat from Tennessee – was upset with all of you folks who refused to stand for the black national anthem during the Super Bowl.

Cohen represents a majority black district in Memphis and he said it was offensive that Super Bowl fans did not rise to their feet during the anthem.

“Very very few stood at Super Bowl for “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” The Negro National Anthem. Not a pretty picture of Super Bowl crowd,” he tweeted.

Why should they stand? It’s not our national anthem. And suggesting it is – desecrates the Star Spangled Banner

“Live Every Voice and Sing.” – a black spiritual referred to during the Black Lives Matter era as their national anthem.

The congressman says most people in Memphis stand for both anthems – the real one and this one.

Critics said Cohen was just race-baiting and argued that Democrats have long used race to divide the nation.

And one black conservative who lives in the congressman’s district pushed back on the argument there are two anthems.

The truth is black Americans already have a national anthem. It’s called, “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
