Now I don't want to get into a racial arguement, but there is something I don't understand. Why do black people who want to be equal with white people always seperate themselves from whites? I mean we are ALL americans so why do you need to sing a song to express how you feel as a black person living in america INSTEAD of the NATIONAL ANTHEM!?!

The same could be said about hispanics who have the cuban or mexican flag flying! You wanted to be here in the US right? Your country wasn't good enough for you so you came here. Why aren't you flying the American flag?

Before it's said or implied...... piss off I am not a bigot! I just call it like I see it! Don't like it? Take off your PC glasses and take a look for yourself.

I just want things to be equal and stop all the petty bickering back and forth and come together as Americans! 911 was a tragedy indeed, but I was proud of how we all came together and united as a counrty. Unfortunately that didn't last long.
excellent post. and by the way hendrix's rocks anyway you look at..lol ..

Key sentence right there. Men like the "Rev." Al Sharpton fuel this sort of BS. But before we can blame "the blacks" I get equally appalled when the youngsters from Howard Beach, NY or B.F.E., TX lynch a black kid and set us back 100 years all over again.

I agree with you Hammer. Creating black this and black that (history month, anthems, channel, magazines, etc) serves no other purpose than to keep us all divided. Someday.....


BTW - I once had a Devil Dog on November 10th say he celebrates the USMC Birthday on the date of the first black Marines (June 25, 1941?). I called immediate BS on that one., Explaining that we are all green; some light green, some dark green, but green none-the-less and brothers through our bond as Marines. Ultimately he agreed and we got shit-faced. lol.

The races and cultures who have had the most success in this country bent over backwards to assimilate, not differentiate themselves. It's fine to be proud and celebrate your heritage, but don't alientate others or go overboard in the process. Irish/Polish/Italian/German Americans (just to name a few) are usually the MOST patriotic Americans, and would never DREAM of singing some kind of alternative anthem. It's no coincidence that those cultures are also the one's who have enjoyed the most prosperity in this country...

Hammer said it best...and when individuals recognize that they are doing themselves, their families, their neighbors, and this country an injustice...then and only then will this type of BS stop!!!

I bet if a "white' person switched the National Anthem for let's say, "Dukes of Hazzard", millions of people would be lining up to cry foul!

the southern national anthem

O, I wish I was in the land of cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.

In Dixie Land where I was born in
Early on one frosty mornin'
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land.

Chorus:
O, I wish I was in Dixie!
Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land I'll take my stand
To live and die in Dixie
Away, away,
Away down south in Dixie!

there is another version that was done for the CSA(confederate states of america)

Agreed...

You take ANY soldier regarless of color or religion and ask him if it matters what race or religion the guy in the foxhole next to him is, and they will say it doesn't matter! He's got my back and I got his!

One of the things I miss the most about the service is that all the racial BS was just that....BS! There is something to learn from that mindset. My senior drill instructor was dark green and I have more respect for him than most men I have ever met. Like you said...... someday.........

SEMPER FI WarDen!
