    A friend of mines and I were talking about this. I had no idea that this song was not written about the war of 1812, but the slaves that fought in that war. That’s the real reason why Kaepernick was refusing to stand during that song.

    I actually knew that. Also, the crazy part about it is that there is a hidden verse (the 3rd verse). That actually speaks of owning slaves.

    The media completely changed the narrative and try to falsely focus on disrespecting the troops. Instead of really questioning the racist verse.

    Absolutely @Charles, right there it shows that America never saw us as equals to begin with. We will always be perceived as animals, and uncouth

    Wow! If that song is a racist song then there is no hope, because it is the founding song of our nation.
