Look... The point here is that she was paid to do one particular thing and decided to do her own "creative" thing on it. It was wrong of her. I'm not saying she can't sing, the song she did was awful, or even unpatriotic. When you're asked and paid to do something, you do it the way you agree to. That's the simple point here.

I like it, but if someone asks you to sing a specific song, that's what you should sing. It's your job and responsibility.

Those old white guys overreacted, though. If it had been something more "white" they probably wouldn't have been half as offended.

Hell, Israel is praised by the U.S. and they are just a Jewish version of Apartheid, only worse.

Or better yet Groogle, maybe Canada will keep it's arms open to "migrants" and other 3rd world trash.

That would be good because then the parasitic illegals would flood canada and turn your beloved country into a 3rd world poo colored cesspool!

Then you can all join hands like a bunch of drating fags and sing songs about how great being alienated in your own damn country is.

drat the 3 r's!

It's time for a good bout of drating anarchy!

Hell we have a bastardized version of it all ready, why don't we start the real thing?

Frankly, I think most comments in this topic proves that most people lost track of what's really important in society.

A simple guideline would be to have everyone respect the 3 R's.

Respect for oneself;
Respect for others;
Responsibility for your own actions;

Mitchell1192: "I would rather die than see that happen."

Would be even more fun if that would happen and you died while it happened.

HOW dratING TYPICAL!

Look at drating South Africa! You wanna see what happens when you give a backwards, dumb ass, lazy, corrupt and inferior group of people control of a formerly prosperous white controlled nation? Well there you have it.

They destroyed it and forced whites to live in poverty, always the last to be selected for a job at best. All of this under the name of equality.Hell they even screwed themselves!

Blacks were better off under apartheid then they are now under their own drating rule!

The truth is the only way you can ever make blacks as a whole equal to whites is to hold down and oppress the whites, and it will still be close.

The same goes for Kenya. Kenya used to export food and now they are constantly on the brink of a drating famine or they already have one!

So yeah, let's just follow the pattern and hand over the country that our WHITE ancestors created, built, and DIED for to a bunch of nation wreckers.

I would rather die than see that happen.

I think it was wrong that she decided to change up what she was brought in to do. I know that she was trying to make a point and all, but she should've been stopped and escorted off the stage. It was a poor decision on her part and I'm sure she lost the respect of a lot of people, regardless of race.

I think most people were mad because they thought she was trying to make a political statement. From her statement apologizing it seems she was just trying to make something creative and new. You can understand both sides.

White Dude's sense of love for country: Kiss our shiny white asses!

Black Dude's sense of love for country: It is everyone's country! Work hard and love your country!

Mexican/Asian Dude's sense of love for country: Work hard, love your country.

What really gets me is that she admits that it wasn't the right place or time to do it, but she took advantage of the situation anyway. Does she really think that by singing one song she's going to change any racism that happens nowadays? More likely, she's going to promote it.

But then again I also believe that affirmative action has served its purpose and should be done away with, or at least be altered to give handouts to people based on income or if they live in a crappy neighborhood...

I thought it was very insulting weather she meant it or not. The anthem is a very beautiful song and it shouldn't have been up to her to 'make' everyone listen to it. it wasn't right and it wasn't fair, especially when, I'm sure everyone, was already expecting the original.

Man~ I fcking hate how black people always b*tch and moan and complain about how discriminated they are, how the white man is always trying to hold them down. They act like they are the only race that was enslaved through out all of history. I don't give a rat's a$$ about her changing the national anthem, but that sounded like another "b*tching, moaning, complaining" anthem that black people love singing all the time. PLZ JUST LET THE FCK GO!!!

They told her what to sing and she did not do so. Shame on her.

She had a very strong voice, but she should have just sang The National Anthem.

It is not just a song either.. it is our heritage.
Your grandparents most likely fought for that heritage.

It isn't a little change.. its other races replacing American culture.

There is an old saying in America.. if you don't like it get out.
