Re: Story, May 26 MDJ, “NAACP seeks help in run-up to Juneteenth.”
I don’t have a problem with the festivities, it is with the fact that a National Anthem was sung — not our National Anthem, but an “African-American National Anthem.” Until I read this article, I wasn’t aware that there was a national anthem just for African Americans. I am under the impression that “we” as U.S. citizens should show allegiance to our country. When our children, no matter their skin color, are taught that they can choose something other than the U.S. National Anthem, where does it end? The operative word here is “United.” How can we hope to work together for the good of our country if we are not working together toward one goal? That goal should be to get this country back to the love of God, family and country.
