Democratic congressman hits Super Bowl fans for not standing for 'Negro National Anthem'
'Very very few stood for ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing... Not a pretty picture of Super Bowl crowd,' Tennessee Rep. Steve Cohen wrote on X

A Democratic congressman raised some eyebrows online Sunday when he took a shot at the Super Bowl crowd in Las Vegas, saying very few fans stood for the singing of "Lift Every Voice and Sing," calling it "not a very pretty picture."

Known colloquially as the "Black National Anthem," Grammy winner Andra Day performed the song as part of the pre-game festivities for Super Bowl LVIII between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.

"Very very few stood for ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,’" Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn. wrote on X. "The Negro National Anthem. Not a pretty picture of Super Bowl crowd." Cohen represents a majority-Black district in western Tennessee.

PLEASE stop describing Democrats as democratic!

NOTHING could be further from the truth!

  • Ah, the air is so much fresher here...
Yep, separatist, unwilling to unify, and demanding the other 90% of population prostrate themselves to you like a slave does indeed look pretty darn ugly.
For those who can, get back to the land. Homesteading is a revolutionary act of resistance.

I am not a citizen of Negro Nation.  It is not my nation nor my anthem.

There one anthem.  It ain't black and it ain't white.  Cut the racebaiting crap "Ira"  Please focus on that shithole you represent..... Memphis.

Dang straight.  It’s divisive and polarizing.

Why not have a white anthem?  Maybe some yellow and red also?  How many songs have to preface the games?

Would you rather they kneel?
Because that's what I'd have done were I there.

They can kiss my royal 'White' grits! There is only one national anthem and that is the "Star Spangled Banner". That song brings tears to my eyes now a days and means more to me than it ever has before.
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

You know who else it's not? Black Americans. They don't need a separate national anthem. As American citizens their national anthem is the same as every other American citizen. it's called "The Star Spangled Banner."
