I am so very glad that I have NO children in school these days because I would have been arrested so many damn times, it ain’t even funny.
She sat out the anthem in protest . Her teacher said, ‘Go back to your country’, students say.
The students were assembled in the auditorium of their high school on Chicago’s North Side, there to celebrate Hispanic heritage — but first, their teachers told them, they had to stand for the national anthem.
A group of students, who thought the request unusual, decided to remain seated. It was a silent but recognizable condemnation of racial injustice.
When one student — a Latina and U.S. citizen — refused a teacher’s pointed direction to stand, she said he replied with an infamously racist line: “Go back to your country.” The same teacher turned to a black student, who was also sitting down, and asked whether she was part of the public school system’s free and reduced lunch program, telling her she should stand for the people who have died for the country, the students said.
They were then told to leave the assembly.
Again, why were the Black students forced to attend a Hispanic heritage event in the first place when they should have been attending a Black History Month event? And why was the focus, during Black History Month, not on what the little Black child was told by the teacher, but the focus is on what was told to the Latina child? I am so damn tired of the plight of American descendants of slaves overlooked even during the month that has been set aside by the whites to ostensibly celebrate any gains made by Black people in this shithole. Our celebrations are relegated to the shadows when some other group has supposedly been slighted.
The little Black girl who sat out a racist national anthem was not the focal point of this article, the focus was on the Latina child who was told to “Go back to your country!” Black people are not telling those Latinos to go back anywhere. Whites are doing that shit and Latinos have whites to thank for why they are sitting somewhere in migrant camps on the southern border, but that’s not the problem we American descendants of slaves should be concerned about. We have multiple problems and many of them are visited on us by the whites’ greed when they hire Latinos, Latinas, Hispanics or whatever they want to be called over us because they get to pay them a mere pittance since whites very well know that there are more than likely multiple illegals attached to the one legal Latino sitting their ass over here.
American descendants of slaves are shown time and time again that we don’t matter for shit because I cannot believe that this is actually ‘Black History Month’ since there has not been hide nor hair of ANY major coverage from ANY mainstream news media about ‘Black History Month’. And this story proves my point. Why focus on what was said to a Latina while ignoring what was said to a little Black girl, who is a descendant of slaves during Black History Month?
The same teacher turned to a black student, who was also sitting down, and asked whether she was part of the public school system’s free and reduced lunch program, telling her she should stand for the people who have died for the country.
Yeah! Read that again! This little Black girl was stereotyped because all whites believe that Black students make up the majority when it comes to being poor enough to qualify for free or reduced lunch programs and even if that were true, are you skanks wondering why? Seriously?
You whites make damn sure that the Black parents of little Black girls and Black boys all across this shithole are sitting behind bars on bullshit charges. You make damn sure that we are the last hired and the first to be fired. You made damn sure that jobs that used to afford a decent living to Black families were shipped overseas. You infiltrated our organizations and incarcerated, murdered or sent our Black revolutionaries into exile because they were trying to fight back against your rabid and insane hatred of us. You burned our towns. You destroyed our Black Wall Street and you bombed our asses as well. And yet, you expect us to stand and listen to some piece of shit national anthem penned by the likes of you who got his ass kicked by some slave soldiers? Yeah! You go back and read how Francis Scott Key got his ass handed to him by some Black soldiers and he didn’t hardly appreciate that shit and so penned this stanza when he put together YOUR national anthem, not mine.
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.
And so what does the above mean? It meant that slaves joined up with the British to fight against their tormentors; their ‘owners’.
The orders given to the Royal Navy’s Admiral Sir George Cockburn read:
“Let the landings you make be more for the protection of the desertion of the Black Population than with a view to any other advantage. … The great point to be attained is the cordial Support of the Black population. With them properly armed & backed with 20,000 British Troops, Mr. Madison will be hurled from his throne.
Whole families found their way to the ships of the British, who accepted everyone and pledged no one would be given back to their “owners.” Adult men were trained to create a regiment called the Colonial Marines, who participated in many of the most important battles, including the August 1814 raid on Washington.
So when Francis Scott Key penned “No refuge could save the hireling and slave / From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,” he was taking great satisfaction in the death of slaves who’d freed themselves. His perspective may have been affected by the fact he owned several slaves himself.
After the U.S. and the British signed a peace treaty at the end of 1814, the U.S. government demanded the return of American “property,” which by that point numbered about 6,000 people. The British refused. Most of the 6,000 eventually settled in Canada, with some going to Trinidad, where their descendants are still known as “Merikins.”
Francis Scott Key got his ass kicked by a regiment of Black slave Colonial Marines and he didn’t hardly appreciate that fact and so penned that vile shit and called it, “The Star Spangled Banner” and yet many Black singers have bellowed that vile shit out and they had to have known about this verse as well even if they did not take the time to read up on the history of that disgusting piece of shit song. The British refused to turn over what the U.S. government deemed its ‘PROPERTY’! And what the fuck has changed? Not a goddamn thing because descendants of slaves are property. Blacks like Gladys Knight, Beyoncé, Jennifer Hudson, Diana Ross and yes, even dead ones, Natalie Cole, Luther Vandross, Whitney Houston and Aretha Franklin just to name a few have all sung a song that stands for a nation steeped in the blood of Indians and slaves dragged from Africa. A nation that proudly, to this day, confirms that it still stands for slavery and genocide seeing as how there over 2 million descendants of slaves incarcerated which is more than were original African slaves and the Indians are still segregated on reservations experiencing hunger, illness and abject poverty while the descendants of those who put them there are still waging war on the descendants of slaves and the Indigenous population.
And yet a little Black girl is told that since she most likely receives a “free or reduced lunch” that she should be “standing for people who died for this country.” Newsfuckingflash, her people did die for this country! Her people did fight and die for a country that hated them even as they fought for a country filled with the most deranged, depraved, blood thirsty, bigoted, racist filth to ever slither and crawl all across this shithole. That little Black girl had every right to sit or stand as she saw fit because the blood of her ancestors was left on every goddamn battlefield all across this shithole and the world despite the intense racism, bigotry, prejudice, Jim Crow, hatred and intolerance they had to endure in this hellhole that their ancestors had been dragged to. So shut the fuck up because she had every right to sit that vile shit out! The spilled blood of her ancestors on numerous battlefields gave her that right. She’s not sitting shit out because your pasty asses died for her. She’s sitting that shit out because those who looked like her died for her, you insane rabid, hate filled, pasty assed beasts!
And don’t start that shit up about how Donald Trump has emboldened this type of behavior in institutions all across this shithole. Are you serious? This shit has already been going down and anyone with their head not stuck up their ass would have seen this. Not one American descendant of slaves is shocked and appalled because this is the first time we are seeing this rabid, racist ‘in our face’ shit! Where the hell have you whites been? You mean, you haven’t been noticing just what the hell you’ve been visiting on our asses since our ancestors were first dragged here? Don’t start that shit! You know damn well that Trump did not instigate this shit. Did police murdering innocent Black men, women and children occur just as Trump descended to the presidency? Did the mass incarceration of American descendants of slaves occur just as Trump descended to the presidency? Likewise the so-called ‘War on Drugs’? The school-to-prison pipeline? Massive income inequality of American descendants of slaves? Mass homelessness of American descendants of slaves? A massive decline in wealth of American descendants of slaves? Mass foreclosure of homes of American descendants of slaves? Did ALL of this shit occur when Donald Trump stepped foot inside the Oval Office? Hell fucking no! And you goddamn well know this. So don’t sit on your pasty ass and exclaim that this shit just occurred when Donald Trump sat his debased, racist ass inside the White House. You whites have ALWAYS been what you are; a bunch of damn Donald Trumps. Don’t fucking act like you’re not Trump! You ALL are for if not, the shit wouldn’t have been going down for centuries, but it has and it still is and what’s more, nothing is going to change and you damn well know this!
That shit is why we are ‘celebrating’ Black History Month? If so, get the fuck outta here with that bullshit!
