Two nationwide anthems have been performed earlier than Thursday evening’s NFL season opener between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys, which has drawn the ire of “Real Time” host Bill Maher.
Maher let his opinion be recognized on Friday evening within the wake of the NFL taking part in, ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’, in any other case often known as the Black National Anthem.
“I saw last night on the football game, Alicia Keys sang ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,’ which now I hear is called the Black national anthem,” Maher mentioned. “Now, perhaps we must always get rid of our nationwide anthem, however I believe we must always have one nationwide anthem.
“I think when you go down a road where you’re having two different national anthems, colleges sometimes now have … many of them have different graduation ceremonies for Black and White, separate dorms — this is what I mean! Segregation! You’ve inverted the idea. We’re going back to that under a different name.”
Maher makes a legitimate level, which is: how are we striving for extra equality but taking part in separate nationwide anthems for 2 separate races in a single nation?
The entire notion of it’s a farce, a misunderstood thought of inclusion. Maher, who identifies as a liberal, blasted the left for embarrassing him.
“To me, when people say to me sometimes, like, ‘Boy, you really go after the left these days. Why?’ Because you’re embarrassing me,” Maher mentioned. “That’s why I’m going after the left in a way you never did before. Because you’re inverting things that I- I’m not going to give up on being liberal! This is what these teachers are talking about. You’re taking children and making them hyper-aware of race in a way they wouldn’t otherwise be!”
