And the Declaration of Independence. Even the Magna Carta. All racist trash because white people were behind them. It's a vast conspiracy of racism that has gone on for centuries. Just ask the good professor. He will tell you....  :lol:

Someone defaced the statue of Francis Scott Key in Baltimore by spray painting "racist anthem" on its base. Seems like this whole trend of calling things racist is getting out of hand. Ridiculous.

I venture a guess ....that if you actually caught the person that did it and asked what do you mean by that. The answere would be I 'felt' a need to do it accompanied by BS and rhetoric....OR....it was something to do.

Your pick.

The original version of the Star Spangled Banner had some pro-Slavery lyrics:

No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The version we use today is the PC version

None of that justifies vandalism. Just responding to the OP

Well, the Germans use only the PC version of their national anthem by singing only the third stanza of the Deutschlandlied.  No more Deutschland, Deutschland über alles.

I share your thoughts.

But with a murder rate/shooting rate as it is in the city.....I doubt that this will be on the front burner....particularly since 'racism' has been declared...for right or wrong ... that is a third rail. Don't want to upset the unwashed.

BTW did you find a nice clam hut yet...NJs equivalent to oyster bars in MD. Dang I gotta get me some clams....miss them.

"Pro" slavery?  Just sounds like it mentions it, not advocates it.

The context for the reference pertains to the runaway slaves who fought alongside the British during the war of 1812

Would you be willing to wager even a plugged nickle that the idiot who painted grafiti that on the monument ever heard of those long ignored lyrics? :D

That could be viewed as pro-slavery or it could be viewed as pointing out the unfair plight of the slaves.

Of course the latter interpretation will not support the agenda of the race hustlers and therefore must be ignored or discounted.

On a related matter one must remember that our country is named after a dead, European, WHITE guy.

Clearly Amerigo Vespucci was a filthy bigoted racist. We need to get rid of all references to him. Maybe we can start a contest for the renaming of the United States of ________________. All entries are welcome. :rolleyes:
