. Did you know that there is a 3rd & 4th stanza in the anthem that speaks about blacks? It speaks about our cowardice as they saw it. The english was giving blacks freedom if they fought for them, so blacks went that route. So they enshrined us in their song as cowards. The reason I bring this up is because it is my opinion we should stand ( or sit as it were) behind Colin because America doesn’t respect us. We built this country literally.

THE WEEK

1. Trump to visit Mexico before immigration speech
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump will travel to Mexicoon Wednesday to meet with President Enrique Peña Nieto hours before Trump makes what he has billed as a “major speech” on immigration. Peña Nieto on Friday extended an invitation to both Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to visit Mexico. Trump’s trip comes after he has suggested he might soften his call for deporting all of the estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. Clinton’s campaign dismissed Trump’s trip as a distraction.
