BREAKING! Racist NBA Teams Just Denounced U.S. And Made SICK Demand On White Fans!

What in the world is this? The whole national anthem controversy has now taken a turn for the ridiculous.

Since there seems to be a huge issue with standing for our country’s national anthem for colored athletes these days. As part of “Black History Month” during the month of February, a handful of NBA basketball teams decided to play an anthem, but it wasn’t the familiar “Star Spangled Banner.” Instead, they decided to play the “Negro national anthem” by African-American singers approved by the NAACP.

Lift Every Voice and Sing
By James Weldon Johnson

Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us,
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on till victory is won.

Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chastening rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.

God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who has 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.

The new anthem they played was called “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” Which was originally a rallying call for black Americans after the Civil War. Although it was originally written to honor President Abraham Lincoln and the fact that he freed the slave. But it never really caught on.

James Weldon Johnson, who was a popular author, civil rights activist and educator at the time was the one who wrote the lyrics.

What is going on here? Why are African Americans all of a sudden getting their own “national anthem?” Is the lunacy of liberalism so deeply ingrained in our society that people actually think this is an ok thing? And doesn’t an anthem for just black America also alienate all other cultures who are a part of American society?

Wouldn’t it be a better idea if we all stop listening and idolizing people who can barely read and write while we make them multimillionaires as they spew their fake social justice agenda on us? These people get millions per year to just toss around a ball. What exactly qualifies them to be political activists who understand the struggle of the average African American person in America?

Maybe it’s time the African American community start taking a close look at themselves and start to understand they are being played by people like this in order to further divide and conquer. So people like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can continue to get rich and the Democrat Party can continue to get elected.

“Lift Every Voice and Sing” was publicly performed first as a poem as part of a celebration of Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on February 12, 1900, by 500 school children at the segregated Stanton School in Jacksonville, Florida. Its principal, James Weldon Johnson, wrote the words to introduce its honored guest Booker T. Washington. The poem was set to music in 1905 by Johnson’s brother John. In 1919, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) dubbed it “The Negro National Anthem”[2] for its power in voicing the cry for liberation and affirmation for African-American people.

In 1939, Augusta Savage received a commission from the New York World’s Fair and created a 16-foot (5 m) plaster sculpture called Lift Every Voice and Sing which was destroyed by bulldozers at the close of the fair.

In Maya Angelou’s 1969 autobiography, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, the song is sung by the audience and students at Maya’s eighth grade graduation, after a white school official dashes the educational aspirations of her class.

In 1990, singer Melba Moore released a modern rendition of the song, which she recorded along with others including R&B artists Stephanie Mills, Freddie Jackson, Anita Baker, Dionne Warwick, Bobby Brown, Stevie Wonder, Jeffrey Osborne, and Howard Hewett; and gospel artists BeBe & CeCe Winans, Take 6, and The Clark Sisters, after which, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” was entered into the Congressional Record by Del. Walter Fauntroy (D-DC).

In 2008, jazz singer Rene Marie was asked to perform the national anthem at a civic event in Denver, Colorado, where she caused a controversy by substituting the words of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” into the song. This arrangement of the words of “Lift Every Voice and Sing” with the melody of “The Star Spangled Banner” became part of the titular suite on her 2011 CD release, “The Voice of My Beautiful Country”.

On January 20, 2009, the Rev. Joseph Lowery, who was formerly president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, used a near-verbatim recitation of the song’s third stanza to begin his benediction at the inauguration ceremony for President Barack Obama.

On September 24, 2016, this song was sung by mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves and chorus at the conclusion of the opening ceremonies of the National Museum of African American History and Culture, at which Obama delivered the keynote address.

On October 19, 2017, when white nationalist leader Richard Spencer spoke at the University of Florida, the university’s carillon played “Lift Every Voice and Sing” to convey a message of unity.”

Steph Curry: Trump Revoking Warriors’ White House Invite a ‘Rallying Point’ for the Entire Sports World

Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry sat down with CNN’s Van Jones for an interview and the All-Star guard discussed President Donald Trump revoking the team’s invitation to celebrate their championship at the White House after Curry and his teammates suggested they were not interested in going.

Curry told Jones that it was “surreal” to have the president tweeting about him, adding the revoked invite was a “rallying point” for the sports world.

“[Trump] kind of, you know, took that power away from us and didn’t allow us to have that process to come to the decision [to go] as a group,” Curry said. “Obviously, I think, that was a rallying point, not just for our team, but the NBA and, for the sports world in general, I think.”


24Hrs After Trump Frees Basketball Players from 10Yr Chinese Prison Sentence, Look What Racist NBA Did

President Donald Trump has just returned home from a very lengthy and successful trip to Asia where he accomplished a lot, including one monumental task that nobody was expecting. Proving that he’s the master of the deal and concerned for every American, regardless of skin color or if they voted for him, he went out of his way to get three UCLA basketball players released from Chinese “house arrest” after they were accused of shoplifting sunglasses and faced a 10 year prison sentence for it. This is something his predecessor never attempted for any American captive and wouldn’t be able to accomplish if he had bothered to try.

It’s no secret that many professional sports players are not Trump fans but that hasn’t stopped the president from being the leader he promised he would be for the American people. No matter how many leftists and athletes trash him, call him racist, and make other disparaging remarks about him, he’ll still show up and save who or what needs to be saved, proving them wrong every time regardless of whether they acknowledge it or not. Every American clearly matters to Trump more than they did to Barack Hussein Obama, who left North Korean captive Otto Warmbier to die days after being released from captivity, the Guardian reported.

In a sharp contrast from Trump’s treatment of three American college kids imprisoned overseas, Warmbier, also an American student, was only released once he had reached a vegetative state and was near death. He was unfortunate to be held on Obama’s watch who forgot about him or simply couldn’t be bothered, which led to him being beaten into a coma. Sick of caring for him in this condition and not wanting to claim responsibility for Warmier’s physical state, North Korea finally released him – no thanks to anything Obama did who stood by while this student was abused to death.

It’s refreshing to have a Commander-in-Chief who cares and would never allow that to happen to any American, as he just proved. His actions of negotiating the release of these college basketball players proved his character as a leader. As UCLA teammates Jalen Hill, Cody Riley, and LiAngelo Ball were on their way back to the U.S. just an hour or so after Trump worked the deal of their lifetime, their professional basketball counterparts were playing an NBA game and had an interesting way of “thanking” Trump for what he did for these three players.

NBA star for the Boston Celtics, Kyrie Irving, has been an outspoken professional basketball player for the protests he’s seen happen in the National Football League. He made a lengthy statement on the matter in September, supporting players’ message in kneeling and their right to do that, according to his statements published by MassLive. However, after seeing what Trump did for these UCLA players, he showed up with a surprise on the court Tuesday night, at his game against the New Jersey Nets, and took the whole arena by complete surprise.

Sports Illustrated reports:

A masked Kyrie Irving returned to the court Tuesday night to help the Celtics beat the Nets 109-102, giving Boston its thirteenth straight victory after an 0-2 start. 

After this latest victory, Kyrie Irving found two women in uniform who serve in the military and gave one his game-worn jersey and the other his shoes. As you’d might expect, they were really pumped.

It’s impossible to not smile after you see and hear the genuine joy in their voices.

Veterans Day may have been Saturday, but every day is a good day to show active military personnel and veterans love.

It’s a pretty spectacular move in what’s been a fairly racist league that almost took after the NFL, but this shows genuine appreciation for those who serve our country. In a silent sort of way, it shows a little love for our president who wants to see these sports stars respect our military members, both past and current. Most sports stars who still protest today, despite the overwhelming damage it has done to their industry, are not doing it out of the original principle of bringing attention to injustices – they are doing it just to spite our president who is outspoken on the matter, especially after Tweetingthat anyone who kneels should be fired. Trump is already making a major difference in this country that Obama never could, since he’s leading by example to bring about the change and unity he wants to see in this country.

As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. famously said, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” This is what Irving did when he brought love and appreciation to Service Members on the court and set an example of what making a real difference looks like. If you want change, be the change without disrespecting people, our military, and our country in trying to achieve it.

NBA Just Gave Players Sick New Instructions To Disrespect Our Nation – Here’s What They Are Going To Do

In an obvious attempt to commit collective suicide, the NBA or the National Basketball Association, for those of us who actually have a life outside of watching rich spoiled brats throw a ball for a living, is now asking their players to be more vocal when it comes to addressing social issues. From denouncing anti-transgender bills to promoting gender equality in hiring.

This malarkey was sent by NBA commissioner Adam Silver as a letter the same day that Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett claimed that a Las Vegas cop racially profiled and harassed him.

The letter Silver wrote read, “None of us operate in a vacuum. Critical issues that affect our society also impact you directly. You have real power to make a difference in the world.”

Do these people even realize they just simply toss a ball for a living?

Silver didn’t go into specifics such as citing Black Lives Matter or Antifa, which are both Anti-American groups, but he went on to state that he believes that his ball players have a platform that reaches far beyond their athletic talents.

Again, they toss a damn ball for a living and hardly know how to read and write.

His letter actually went on to say that the NBA is about much more than a game. He added that NBA players have to continue to use the NBA’s “incredible” platform to help and engage with people everywhere.

Ummm, when did you engage when so many of us lost our health insurance coverage thanks to your party Silver? Oh, Sorry, forgot, Former President Barack Huessin Obama was black, so he’s untouchable to you and your illiterate players.

The letter follows a similar one sent by the NBA before the start of last season, right around the time Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protest began.

Cudos for managing to spell “I Can’t Breathe” correctly! 

Deadline Hollywood Reports:

With 21.8 million NFL fans tuning in, the kickoff of the 2017 regular season was down 13% for the NFL and NBC from last year’s opener. Not only does that represent a very real smack down for the league and the net coming off a previous season that saw double-digit declines in its early months, but it is the worst an opening game has done since 2009.

In fact, with Hurricane Irma evacuations in Florida likely having an effect on viewership in the Sunshine State, this is the first time in five years that the total audience of the kickoff game has fallen below 25 million. And, while the most watched network show in three months, even with streaming and other NBC platforms bumping things up to 22.2 million, the game still fell short of the 25 million mark.

All of which means a lot more is now riding on Sunday Night Football’s NY Giants and Dallas Cowboys match-up on September 10. Because if those two mega-market teams can’t score ratings-wise, the NFL has a real re-think on its agenda.

PREVIOUSLY, 6:51 AM: The consensus was that last night’s NFL kickoff game would see the favored New England Patriots win at home – but the defending Super Bowl champions currently sit in last place.

In a 42-27 win over Tom Brady and crew in a game that went to midnight on the East Coast, the Kansas City Chiefs brought some real drama to the start of the 2017-18 regular season. But last year’s AFC West champs took some real hits too, with cornerback Marcus Peters getting blowback on social media and more for sitting in protest during the national anthem and Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry suffering a season-ending ruptured Achilles tendon in the matchup at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA.

Still, with a 14.6/25 in meter-market ratings, the beginning of the new NFL season was not exactly a winner for the league and NBC.

While better than anything on the Big 4 has done in the overnights in months, those numbers are down a sobering 12% from the early results of the Denver Broncos’ tight 21-20 victory over the Carolina Panthers in last year’s kickoff game on September 8, 2016.

Long season short, that’s not a good start for either the NFL or networks hoping to gain some traction from last year’s NFL ratings blows.

To put some greater context, the 2016 kickoff game, which was down from both the 2015 and the 2014 openers, went on to snare a 9.4/33 rating among adults 18-49 and 25.2 million viewers. With the eventual Super Bowl 50 champs 10 points down at one point before surging for the win, the Broncos-Panthers opener was the fourth year in a row that an NFL kickoff game topped 25 million viewers. With 27.5 million sets of eyeballs, the 2010 kickoff between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings still holds the record for most-watched season opener since the traditional Thursday openers started in 2002.

Of course, last night’s 8:45 PM – midnight ET game comes off last season’s sacked ratings, as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell — who was booed and mocked by clown nose-sporting Patriots fans at last night — the Comcast-owned net and others are more than aware. Starting out in a 12% decline, a generous analysis had ratings for the 2016-17 season down around 8% overall from the year before in the end.

Before last night’s results, a sliver of hope had seemed to emerge as this year’s preseason games were up 5% over the 2016 exhibitions. Heading into Sunday Night Football on NBC this weekend, a lot of stock will be put in the big-market matchup between the NFC East rival New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys delivering the goods and the numbers to turn things around.

Until then, we’ll update with more of Thursday’s kickoff ratings as we get them throughout the day, along with Big Brother, Battle of the Network Stars and Beat Shazam results too. In the meantime, here are the Top 10 markets for last night’s game:

Providence 35.6/55
Kansas City 35.5/55
Boston 35.0/59
Denver 20.6/38
New Orleans 20.4/29
Norfolk 18.9/31
Richmond 18.9/30
Buffalo 17.7/30
Milwaukee 17.2/28
Seattle 17.1/32

And, because we can all use a bit more Game of Thrones, since the Season 7 finale of the HBO blockbuster last month, here is a little something to put Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick’s Thursday night in context:

Down 16% overall in the key demo from last year’s early numbers, which was down from the year before, those 8 – 11 PM results will surely change as time adjusted final numbers come in later today. Right now the game itself is delivering a 7.2/26 rating and 20.81 million viewers. That’s a 15% decline from the fast affiliates that the September 8, 2016 match-up between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers pulled in. Again, if past kickoffs and live sporting events in general are any indication, expect Thursday’s demo and total viewership to change, especially being that the game went until midnight.

Having said that, the Kansas City Chiefs 42-27 victory over the New England Patriots in last night’s NFL kickoff game isn’t going to change and it is unlikely, based on the metered-market results earlier today, that the start of the league’s 98th season will bounce up to beat or match last year.

Adam Silver is correct, Millionaire NBA and NFL players have all the right to whine about how bad the United States of America treats them, but us Patriotic American Citizens also have the right to boycott the NFL, NBA and their sponsors.

Please share if you will be boycotting the NBA….
