Re: Mr VJL Oye

Seleyn Sah!

The one thing we know about racists is that thier sentiments are usually a potpourri of uncoordinated jargon that can only find credibility within the context of a constitutional ammendment; in this case, the First Ammendment is the one that gives them a home to believe and say whatever they choose.

Francis Scott Key's disjointed expressions when he penned those words in the National Anthem found a resting place in the very heart of an institution that prided itself on human sufferings.The barbarity in which it was implemented and administered, continue to haunt us to this day and may never be eradicated.

"....No refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave...."

Quite frankly, I was astonished to read of the three other verses, in particular "that third one" of the US National Anthem. Reading it now, it is quite understandable why it was banned entry into the psyche of all who regard only the two known verses of " The Star Spangled Banner as complete. My homographic, double entendre use of the word 'banned' was purposefully intended.

But as those verses had traveled under our scrutiny rader and remained unchallenged for decades, they point to our own folly in not recognizing them earlier. Those contemptuous lines that represented the sentiments of the Southern Antebellum period had remained hidden by the deranged minds whose arrogance had no regards for human degradation. And to this day, they remain part of the anthem never to be extricated.

The stench emitting from what seems to be the prying open of yet another odiferous can of worms (notwithstanding those symbols of the Confederacy and Columbus inquisition)is now center state with the protest of Footballer Colin Kaepernick's refusal to stand in its honor.

And who can blame him?

Worse yet, is how the establishment over the years had successfully pull the wool over our eyes and ask Blacks and other People of Color to stand with hand over heart in reverence to flag and country.

And for Mr. Kaepernick's refusal to honor the subjugation of his ancestors in song, he must pay the price of what is an obvious "Black Listing" and the denial of working in his profession.

He is now regarded as a "Free Agent" somewhat characteristically, in the same manner as all those "Free Men" who preceded him.

I can hear the Flies on the San Francisco Board Room walls, abuzz in signing....."You cannot take our money and defile the very same institution that gave it to us in the first place".

You are now a free man.
