The Negro National Anthem (Lift Every Voice and Sing) Composed by James Weldon Johnson and J. Rosamond Johnson
Good question, but it’s a good song.
You may listen to it hear:
OK, what do they mean by NATIONAL Anthem ? Is this a plot to form a separate nation or what ?
Whatever happened to E PLURIBUS UNUM ?
Hear = here lol
I find the young Jesse Jackson’s stereotypical “Afro” hairstyle racist.
Well dadgum, who knew?
I thought it was “pants on the ground”.
A great song.
It won't happen until the blacks stop buying into the doctrine of victimization espoused by poverty pimps like Jackson and Sharpton, and now Obama and Holder. Now that the Civil Rights Act and followup legislation has made discrimination illegal in this country, professional "victims" need to be able to fall back on the fact that they have been "insulted" because they were referred to by a name that had gone out of favor one, five, or ten years ago.
You must be even sillier than I am since I have no idea what you’re talking about.
I don’t know the answer. The link gives a history of sort. We have a “Black History Month” and the song was a part of a celebration here in Indianapolis as reported on the 11:00 PM news.
God of our weary years, God of our silent tears, Thou Who hast brought us thus far on the way; Thou Who hast by Thy might, led us into the light, Keep us forever in the path, we pray. Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee. Lest our hearts, drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee. Shadowed beneath Thy hand, may we forever stand, True to our God, true to our native land.
our country has ONE national anthem, and it IS for all of us!
black history month... phhhffft!!!!!!!!!!!1
And all this time I thought it was “Brick House”.
I propose, "Lola", by whichever group sung it.
Great tune, nice video..! Except for people getting hanged and beaten by whitey of course....
Anyone wonder why the tail bit of the video showed less than 10 seconds of MLK?
Because if they show more than that, they have to PAY..! They’d have to pay A LOT..! And if they didn’t, they’d get sued to the gills by MLK’s super greedy surviving family.
Public schools have to get exotic levels of permission to play the whole “I Have A Dream” speech, and it is VERY moving —most of us have heard only the most famous little snippets, assuming that we have also heard the rest, but that is not so.
Imagine being CHARGED to listen to a JFK speech.
This controversy came to mind:
So where is Negroland?
The Scottish American Natonal Anthem.
Its a part of Scottish American History Month
And we don’t need any freekin government grants either.
Which land is the last line referring to?
It makes sense; after all, we celebrate MLK’s birthday as a holiday and we have affirmative action, where people are judged by the color of their skin....
Thank you. Listened to it.
They have their own “pledge of allegiance” too. Oh, and, of course, we can’t forget Tavis Smiley’s “State of the Black Union”.
“Where is Negroland”?
Right here my friend. Haven’t you noticed?
I think its a natural phenomenom called “El Negro”.
Its a climate problem.
Then you might like this one.It will tingle you to your boots.
You may know the history of the composer of the piece,John Newton (17251807), who had been the Captain of a British Slave ship, and was deeply effected by the inhumanity of the slave trade, gave up his ship, became a monk renunciate and wrote this song.He later became a clergyman.
He was active in the prohibition of British Slavery during the Disraeli era.
Amazing Grace is deeply connected to Black America . It connects black folks with the Scots.It is also the national anthem of Sottish America.It has not even a shadow of political fabrication about it.
What about this:
Hey, this can go on and on... No matter who sings the song, it is precious. Thank you for yours. I am always moved by the vocals.
I like this one.Ray Charles.I wish he had been accompanied by the pipes.The arrangement would have been perfect to have the pipes instead of an orchestra.
>> Scottish American Natonal Anthem.
Oh really? Me Mum was born in the slums of Airdrie (west of Glasgow). I went tae first grade wi’ a Scots burr (both parents worked; grandparents stayed on the far-um wi’ me).
My anthem is, and me Mum’s was (R.I.P.) the Star Spangled Banner. Forget the tribal crap. May God bless the U.S.A.
Whats wrong, you dont want a Black History month and an Irish History month, and A Native AMerican history month?
Each with its national anthem and federal grant programs?
Don’t believe in the cultural mosaic instead of the melting pot?
Run for office. I will vote for yah!
Negroid is as acceptable as Mongoliod or Caucasoid...what are we gonna do to satisfy folks?
change Spanish Negra?
or the river Niger?
or the nation Niger?
and so forth...and with many even notable blacks themselves calling each other ni$$er all the time and gloating over it while calling me racist if I used it ...I have rarely ..usually only in fights when i’m called MF cracker...
it’s gone beyond ridiculous...I was reared during the civil rights days in ground zero Dixie in a moderate civil rights family but all this garbage and the crime angle has ruined my former idealism...i now know what some of my ancestors feared...hell I’d have to be blind not to have seen all this unfold around me
reminds me of why schoolkids in public can’t talk CHRISTmas but they discuss the Christmas Day bomber.
My 10 year old ragged his lib teacher over this
Where u been dog?
my kids including my 3 year old know it by heart
Don't forget about the racially segregated "Congressional Black Caucus" keeping racism and racial preference alive on Capitol Hill.
That was strangely hilarious.
LOL I thought so too. ;-)
It is said that Bill Clinton knew all the words to every stanza.
