“Black National Anthem” To Be Sung At NFL Games This Year — Was Written By Black Republican Who Denounced Democrats For Lynching Blacks

(Gateway Pundit) – James Weldon Johnson was an American civil rights activist, school principal and writer.

According to Grand Ole Partisan, in 1900, he wrote the poem Lift Every Voice and Sing to honor Republican activist Booker T. Washington when the civil rights leader visited his school.

His brother set the words to music, resulting in what became known as the ‘Negro National Anthem’.

Johnson’s political activism began with denouncing Democrats for lynching African-Americans.

Flashback: Ex-NFL Player, Congressional Candidate Burgess Owens: ‘There Is No Black National Anthem’

Former NFL player and GOP candidate for Congress in Utah Burgess Owens, blasted the National Football League for its decision to air the “black national anthem” before season opening games this season.

Owens was incensed over the NFL’s pandering to the Black Lives Matter movement saying, “there is no ‘black national anthem.’” He also felt as if the NFL was trying to return to the days of segregation.

“There is no ‘black national anthem.’ Why does it feel like the country is trying to segregate again sometimes?” Owens tweeted on Thursday.

Owens was responding to the the NFL’s announcement that it intends to begin playing the song, Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing, a song that many blacks have taken to calling “the black national anthem.”

The league says that the “black national anthem” will be played before the Star Spangled Banner prior to all Week 1 games.

The song was created in 1905 from a 1900 poem written by James Weldon Johnson, an early leader of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).

Owens also recently took aim at the league for pandering to anti-American former player Colin Kaepernick, calling the former San Francisco 49ers second-string quarterback a “Marxist.”

“If Goodell allows Kaepernick to come back, if they allow players to kneel during the national anthem, I’m willing to not watch the game,” Owens told Sports Illustrated last month.

“We have too many Americans now accepting the notion that the flag should be a place where people should be ashamed of or take a knee, that’s what it comes down to,” Owens said. “I am disappointed that so many people are acquiescing today. They don’t understand the American way; they don’t understand the price paid. They need to understand that we can’t be bullied and [also] that we’re not an evil country. There is no other country in the world with the mixing of races and tolerance. We have to change the current narrative.”

“If it was a meritocracy, he would be out there anyway; he would work hard; he would prove himself,” Owens added. “He wouldn’t be taking someone else’s position. We’re looking at Affirmative Action for a Marxist. We’re approving their ideology.

Burgess decisively won his primary race for the Utah’s Fourth Congressional District by nearly 20 points. He will now face off against freshman swing district Democrat Ben McAdams in the general election this coming November.

  3. I hope you win. We need a voice of reason…

    Republicans “deem it necessary that the Democratic Party change its name due to the Party’s long tragic legacy denying Black Americans basic human rights, including:

    Democrats blocked the first attempt to ratify the 13th Amendment in 1863
    Democrats fought a civil war to keep black slaves
    Democrats started the KKK night riders to keep blacks “In Their Place”
    Democrats gave us lynching to terrorize blacks onto submission
    Democrats unanimously voted against the 14th Amendment giving former slaves citizenship
    Democrats unanimously voted against the 15th Amendment giving former slaves the right to vote
    Democrats instituted Jim Crow laws across Democrat led states, denying African Americans the right to vote
    Democrats gave us voter fraud to hide black votes
    Democrats gave us welfare to make and keep blacks dependent
    Democrats held the longest filibuster in U.S Senate history to block the civil rights act 1957
    Democrats gave us black ghettos to make blacks easier to round up
    Democrats armed the Mexican cartels.
    Democrats traded guns for dope to unload in Los Angeles

    Why a black person, why any person would vote Democrat is unfathomable…
