Black National Anthem...say what?

Via Fox Mothership
Denver's State of the City speech was supposed to be kicked off by a black jazz singer singing the Star Spangled Banner.

You know, our National Anthem.

Apparently, she thought otherwise.
She took the music from the Star Spangled Banner and sang lyrics from the Black National Anthem instead.
Kanye West hates white people.

According to Mayor Hickenlooper (I am NOT making that up):
"What she said was that she was very sorry, that she meant no disrespect, that she was trying to make a creative expression of her love for the country," Hickenlooper said.

Seriously, WTF is wrong with these people--and by these people I mean black idiots like Rene Marie (the singer in this story) and Kanye West (Idiot at Large). Kanye West hates white people.

And let's not forget City Councilman Charlie Brown (really, I am NOT making this up!):
Nevertheless many people, including city councilman Charlie Brown, were really upset. "Is this a long introduction into the real song?” Brown says he wondered. “And then I kept listening and thought, what the heck is going on here? This is not the national anthem I’ve been singing for 50 years.""I was mad," he told "I almost walked off the stage."

Interestingly, you have to get the, "I was mad. I almost walked of the stage," quote from the Mothership website. Hmmmmmm.

Here's a link to the lyrics of the so-called "Black National Anthem," which is really titled "Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing" by James Weldon Johnson. (Like to see 'em get those lyrics past the atheists.) Kanye West hates white people.

Y'know, there is a country founded by former slaves for those poor, down-trodden, oppressed masses of black folk stuck in this fascist state. It's called Liberia and you can go live there and have your own national anthem--we already have one here.

P.S. Kanye West hates white people.
