WASHINGTON Illinois Democratic Rep. Danny Davis says he sees nothing wrong with the California ACLUs effort to ban the Star Spangled Banner as the countrys national anthem.
Well, you know, one of the things about the Constitution that our forefathers wrote, and basically, there were none of our foremothers that were there. There were none of our fore-sisters there. There are changes that can take place and there is room to change, he told TheDC Thursday.
Alice Huffman, president of the California chapter of the NAACP, declared the anthem to be racist and that it doesnt represent our community. Its anti-black people, SFGate.com, reported Wednesday. The NAACP is hoping for lawmakers to change it.
Davis, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus went on to say, Intellectually, if people continue to pursue this nation to become perfected, then I see nothing wrong with that. I mean it was designed, I think they said, to form a more perfect union.
He added, They didnt say that it was perfect at the time, but they did say that we could continue to pursue perfection and if theyre individuals who think that we can make the national anthem more perfect in terms of the goals and objectives of this country then I say so be it.
Fellow CBC member Democratic Missouri Rep. Lacy Clay said he would have to examine which part of the anthem the NAACP takes issue with, but he told TheDC, They have a right to object to any stances in the national anthem that they find objectionable and racist.
The NAACP referenced the anthems third verse, which is seldom sung and includes the line, no refuge could save the hireling and slave from the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave.

These people have lost their way.
The voters need to change these CBC Racist Communists, right out of office.
Today’s shining example of the insanity brought on by liberalism.
Needs to be locked up in an insane asylum....does NOT belong out in society.
I would suggest to Davis and the NAACP that they quit after all these decades of using the word “Colored” in the organization’s title. I find the word insulting as I am sure the millions of Black Americans do too.
NAACP is a racist anti American organization that must be abolished
They willfully sold their souls to the Dark One for power.
No one ever accused the racist CBC of being in MENSA.
This proves it.
and you Freepers thought I was too rightwing when I stated the Republic cannot withstand another 8 years with these idiot liberals still walking around. “fore-sisters”? Who TF talks like that. Next year it will be “fore transgender” or whatever faggy crap the left comes up with.
That is because Democrats don’t see themselves as Americans.
Change to what? The Internationale? We Are The World? Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer?
This is what passes for English in the circle he frequents.
Can’t we please just split the country and let them have their own place to make whatever works for them?
And yet the NAACP fully supports the party of the KKK and the National Socialist Workers Party.
Third verse? You kidding?
As if the House has nothing “important” to work on....
