On Sunday, September 24, 2017, entertainer Nick Cannon released a compelling video following a controversial weekend that included a tweet from President Donald Trump to “fire” all NFL players who take a knee.

Here are some of the lyrics/prose:

You want me to stand for a song that continues to remind me of all the harms that have done me wrong?/ Stand for what?!/For your Army that none of our sons truly belong/ Stand for what?/ The 100 years it took them to convince Congress to become the anthem after 40 failed attempts/ Stand for what?/ Your forefathers who really just Pimps./ Stand for What?/ A song about War, not freedom/ That’s how you want to lead them/ Brainwash your people? that’s how you want to treat em Slavemasters whips to Cops night sticks, that’s how you continue to beat em./ Stand for what/ the beginning of Slavery/ in 1619 Or the end of those Black Marines of 1814/

Man stand for what?/ Stand for something or fall for dumb s**t!/ Stand for what/ To salute the Red White and Blue, on a Flag where my Colors not reflected/ Stand for what To uphold laws that were embedded to have my community negatively affected/ Stand for what/ Your racist systemic melodies of mind manipulating rhetoric?/ Did you know the government pays Sports organizations for plays, to make people more patriotic/ This MK Ultra Soul control needs to stop it/ I can still love my country and hate that f****d up song about rockets, and bombs bursting air/ Reminds me of Charlottesville’s vicious glares/…

    AMERICA BS IS
    slaves were sold under false pretense
    mexicans get more patriotism then blacks
    national athem ; is the worst song i heard
    whites are the only ones who believe america is united
    george washington had 200 slaves non were paid while president
    thomas jefferson rapped had babies with 12 year old black girls
    whites motive of killing us is to control the population
    white man revenge is based on black men marrying white women
    kkk should be abolished, but still allowed to march.
    400 years out of slavery and white still side eyeing us
    Black men hate going into the miltary
    police is the new patty rollers
    why dont black cops shoot white people?
    why dont black cops kill blacks
    its not necessary to shoot a running man who is trying to escape
    trump was raised by a very racist father
    chinese still get business loans while blacks are turned down
    they eat all organic foods in the white house ? umm
    trump may be raising his family to believe like he do
    evanka will be running for president or vice by 2024 bet you
    we need to bring back the black panther it wasnt a bad idea ,
    we have the highest amount of people in prison .. black men
    why do goverment fund prisons , while private owners get a hugh check from goverm
    oprah is the next one they will set up for failure .
    look up jack johnson the UNFORGIVABLE BLACKNESS . this will teach you a lesson on how
    white folks think about us ….

      BritishRose this is so onpoint. Have you put this on FB? These people that are mad are not understanding that it is not about them or the flag, its about Black people being tired of being brutally killed while doing nothing, but walking down the street, trying to make a living. We all Bleed red blood but for some reason white people feel that they are privileged to do whatever they want.
