Black National Anthem Sung at Denver State of the City Address

It looks like there really are two Americas. Blacks have their own country, with its own national anthem, as Denver discovered when René Marie performed the Black National Anthem at an official city event yesterday.

At least one councilman was sane enough to object:

This is the State of the City address. It’s not an NAACP convention.

Marie was invited by moonbat mayor John Hickenlooper, who says he thought she was going to sing the real anthem. But he also says:

She blended the two songs together. She was trying to make an artistic expression of her love for the country. She did not intend to make a political statement or anything.

Nah, no political statement here. Nothing but love for the country. The Dems have found the right mayor to serve as master of ceremonies for their convention circus.

The song known as the Black National Anthem is “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,” by James Weldon Johnson. Marie lifted her voice and sang the first verse, which ends on an ominous note about marching on “till victory is won,” evidently over the white man.

If the militant, race-obsessed blacks who are on the verge of taking over the White House can have their own religion, why not their own national anthem?

Ms. Marie seizes an opportunity to stick it to Whitey.
