Skip to comments.Students Made to Stand for Black National Anthem

Turning over the education of future generations to liberals was not such a good idea. Even the Heartland provides plenty of examples of the pernicious indoctrination being imposed on children at our expense in public schools:
Students at Capital High School (CHS) in Charleston, West Virginia have been regularly forced to stand during the playing of a song known as The Black National Anthem.
The song, Lift Every Voice and Sing, was played in the morning right after the American national anthem and the Pledge of Allegiance, and students were forced to stand for all three. While the law currently states that no child can be compelled to stand for any kind of pledge, controversy only arose at CHS after two students and a parent complained about having to stand for the Black National Anthem (BNA).
To make matters worse, Clinton Giles, the black principal of CHS who made the requirement, allegedly ridiculed a child for his refusal to stand during the BNA.
Public scrutiny has shamed Giles into retracting the order that students stand for the divisive anthem, much the way roaches will retreat to behind the toaster when you switch on the light. As soon as our backs are turned, out they scuttle to spread their disease. For every roach that comes to our attention, a thousand others are breeding inside the walls.

The third verse of Lift Every Voice....
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.
Your prediction may not be to far in the future.
If my memory of history is not to far off ... this same thing happened in Germany back in the day.
What about the Hispanic National Anthem? And can I pledge to the Mexican flag?
and do not forget the Asian National Anthem! and the American Indian National Anthem! and the European National Anthem.
It would be nice if we just had one National Anthem for all groups of people, all colors, all nationalities! Wait..........
The principal looks like Van Jone’s evil twin.
Looks like West Virginia has some housecleaning to do, eh Manchin?
I was an extremely rebellious student back in the day. I can only imagine what would have happened if someone hand tried to force me to stand ... for anything. LOL!
Obama is employing Nazi/fascist like tactics.
Soon our troops will be forced to goose step.
Equal Time time.
Where’s the “White National Anthem”. oops, forgot, that’s racist. . . . but a “Black National Anthem”, that’s DIVERSITY.
Right. Pull the other one, it’s got bells on it. . .
Things have reached the point where its time to get in their faces and refuse to cooperate with this crap.
WV went to Romney, not Obama.
There isn’t anything specifically “black” in the song; on its face apart from tradition it’s just another patriotic number. They might as well stand for “God bless America.” (Well the God part is shied away from now.)
When I was in Jr High in 19...92, they had a presentation in the auditorium for black history month where they played this thing and I refused to stand for it. I just remember how put off I was by the whole thing it still disturbs me to this day.
Spirited: From “one people under God,” liberalism breaks us down into multitudes of tribes and/or species. It then foments hate and resentment among the many groups, setting the many against the target ‘group,’ which in this case consists mainly of white-skinned conservative Christians as well as all people of whatever skin color who stand for the America of the founding generation in whole or part.
I guess we will have to name our national American anthem to “The White national anthem.”
Next, you will be hearing the “Brown, Yellow, Red and Woman’s” national anthem.
Oh. I forgot...............the ADA national anthem.
As long as the teachers and the union continue to be fed by the fed they will follow the program of indoctrination, division and agenda
The problem is, their ancestors were the ones who suffered many, many moons ago. These bastards have been riding the American taxpayer gravy train ever since. The only cotton they’ve ever picked was out of an aspirin bottle. (Stolen from Redd Foxx) It’s time for all of them to grow up, get over it, get a job and move on. Geeesh!
Exactly where is this “Black Nation”?
You forgot LGBT national anthem.
“And now, Capitalists of Capital High, let us rise and sing today, the THIRD verse of the Boolack National Anthem.”
An event that will never, ever happen.
Unlike Kalifornia, WV went red in 2000, 2008, 2012. The fact that WV is RAT within the state is more a reflection on the corrupt WV GOP than its people.
I for one, am SHOCKED, I tell you, SHOCKED that the ACLU isn’t in this school suing because they sing a hymn with God’s name in it in a public school. Oh wait, the ACLU only sues when it is the Right wanting to display the Christian religion. This song is a Christian hymn, not a direct Black hymn.
Yeah, everybody IS somebody.
That would be Americans.
Apparently Clinton (no joke!) believes there are American Citizens and Special American Citizens.
The Special (black) American Citizens have their own Special (black) National Anthem.
Kim Bailey, whose son chose not to stand and was "sent to the office several times for his decision," the newspaper said, indicated her support for Giles' decision, noting, "I still think they need to stress the fact there is one national anthem."
Stress the fact... ummm, yeah.
Perhaps once a week for the entire school year there should be an assembly where "Mr Special "African-American (black) National Anthem" stands by himself on stage and leads the students in the REAL National Anthem, recites the Preamble to the Constitution and then the Pledge of Allegiance.
Then, just for Mr. Special "African-American (black) National Anthem," he should recite the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence.
If Mr. Special "African-American National Anthem" does not wish to participate in the weekly Civics lesson, well he can just "move on" to unemployment.

Wow, that's a blast from the past.
Some technology adept student needs to hack the system so it blares out “Dixie” some morning. That’ll wake up the administrators.
After Hours--Erskine Hawkins & His Orchestra (1940)
Read more about it here.
Perhaps this hit from the fall of 1933 could serve as the White National Anthem:
White Jazz--The Casa Loma Orchestra
Secret Love--Doris Day (1954)
Now just wait a danged minute here. They are not supposed to be talkin about God in School. What happened to separation of church and state? :)
What about the Ukrainian National Anthem?
The students should stand for the anthem. And raise their right arms in a Roman salute (AKA Hitler salute) during the entire anthem.
“You forgot LGBT national anthem.”
I think it goes like this:
Oh thay can you thee, by the dawnth early light..
