    In the Spirit of Sankofa,

    It could, actually its a form of satire, which shows our history in America, and the many reasons why its our home, rightly or wrongly, take it or leave it.

    Peace In,

    Very true Jim, and some view the third stanza to be disrespectful as well:

    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave."

    Oh, okay, no wonder she doesn't understand him, she and her husband adopted Colin, looking to replace sons lost to heart defects :facepalm:


    Colin Kaepernick’s Mom Speaks Out Publicly Against His Actions


    Colin was adopted by Rick and Teresa Kaepernick, both white, when he was just 6 weeks old. Rick and Teresa had lost 2 of their own sons to heart defects and were looking for a boy to fill their void. He would become the youngest of 3 children, growing up with older brother Kyle and sister Devon Kaepernick.

    Is there bad blood brewing between Panthers Cam Newton and 49ers Colin Kaepernick?


    A photo began circulating the internet Sunday, shortly after the Panthers beat the 49ers 46-27 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte Sunday. It showed the two quarterbacks appearing, well, to not exactly be exchanging pleasantries. As usual, the Twitter memes came fast and furious ...
