Is Our National Anthem Racist? Short Answer----No.

 The black beotch Gwen Berry who is in the olympics in the hammer throw came in eleventh out of a field of 12 at the olympics.  Gwen Berry failed to medal during the women’s hammer throw finals on Tuesday. Berry finished in eleventh place out of twelve competitors, registering a distance of 71.35 meters.

Gwen Berry and the nfl kneelers are all using the excuse the national anthem is racist. Specifically lines 5 and 6 of the third verse. Those lines are not racist. They are statements. 

No refuge could save the hireling and slave                                          From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave, 

Hirelings are mercenaries. Francis Scott Key was saying mercenaries could not hide from death. Slave refers to the blacks who ran away from their "owners". They agreed to fight for the british in exchange for their "freedom". He was also saying those he viewed as slaves, and would fight against his country, could not hide from death. Just like the british soldiers who could not hide from death. Apparently the US lost that battle of Fort McHenry, but caused a tremendous lot of damage and casualties to the opposition.

So, as they say, that's my story and I'm stickin to it. The national anthem is not racist. 

By the way, how many of you growing up and singing the anthem and being proud of your country even knew the anthem had more than one verse? I didn't until I was an adult.

When the anthem is sung at sports games, only the first verse is ever sang, with emphasis on the last line, And the Home of the Brave. And thats it. No controversy, just patriotism.

Maybe Gwen Berry and her ilk should concentrate on training for their sport. If not, if they feel so strongly about it, maybe they should all move to the country they feel they descended from. And take a chance on becoming a slave, because slavery is still practiced there.   Slavery Rampant in Africa, Middle East; The West Wrongly Accuses Itself
