Should the 'Star-Spangled Banner' be replaced as the national anthem? | The Tylt
Americans are finding out that the Star-Spangled Banner is actually really racist. People are learning about the third verse, which calls for the deaths of freed slaves, and feel very conflicted. Some folks are calling for America the Beautiful to replace the Star-Spangled Banner entirely. It's not a new suggestion, but it's getting new traction thanks to Colin Kaepernick's protest.
