    Wouldn't be the first nor the last time it happens! However, it needs to stop...

    That is the truth. As long as we have labels on things, and different races claiming something as belonging only to them, we will never have true unity.

    It's about the National Anthem,period. Did you see the Mayor's face when she was singing? He was frozen-uh uh-he didn't know. Look at the uproar when Rosanne Barr screwed with it at the ball game. Last I checked-she is white. Hate mail? She almost got pulverized. News flash: people don't like for anyone to screw with the National Anthem. ALL people-not just white. This one had a severe lapse of judgement in this case. Painful at a time with Obama running and what should be a time of unity! Ya know-some of that hate mail could be coming from Obama's staff!

    Her race isn't a factor for me, because what she did was just wrong. And whoever is sending the hate mail is wrong also..whether they are black, white, purple, or blue.

    Lift Ev'ry Voice was written in the 1900's, and wasn't or isn't used to divide anyone.. I think most folks didn't know it existed until now.

    I believe most of the South is familiar with it. It is truly uplifing and lovely. Anyone ever attending the New Orleans Jazz Festival has heard it done beautifully in differing ways. I want everyone to know and appreciate it also-just not under these circumstances!
