While the first verse of “The Star-Spangled Banner” is widely known by the Amerikkkan public, the last three verses are generally omitted in performances. Here are all the four verses, as they were written 200 years ago by #FrancisScottKey:
___
O say can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hail’d at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watch’d were so gallantly streaming?
And the rocket’s red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there,
O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
___
On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream,
’Tis the star-spangled banner—O long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
____
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
___
O thus be it ever when freemen shall stand
Between their lov’d home and the war’s desolation!
Blest with vict’ry and peace may the heav’n rescued land
Praise the power that hath made and preserv’d us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto – “In God is our trust,”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Our "Star-Spangled Banner" #nationalanthem was originally written by #FrancisScottKey in 1814 back when equality of the sexes and races were not only non-existent but illegal. Fast-forward to 2017, a lot of people are protesting the national anthem for these reasons, however the Internet took over and selected for #Migos rapper #Quavo to remake it instead!

He wrote the national anthem (The Star Spangled Banner). Key was a slave holding lawyer from an old plantation family that grew rich and powerful from slavery. At the time that he wrote the poem that would later become the national anthem, not only did he profit from slaves, but he harbored racist conceptions of American citizenship and human potential. He stated that "africans in america are a distinct and inferior race of people, which all experience proves to be the greatest evil that afflicts a community". Additionally, Key used his office, as the district attorney for the City of Washington (from 1833 to 1840) to defend slavery and attack the abolitionist movement. His movement gained momentum and with it came increased violence, particularly from pro-slavery mobs attacking free blacks and other methods to silence the abolitionist movement. Furthermore, he took the melody for the star spangled banner from his favorite song, "Anacreon in Heaven", which was a song praising alcoholism and sex. #starspangledbanner #nationalanthem #slavery #patriot #potus #american #us #usa #washingtondc #truth #facts #politics #government #happyfriday #friyay #francisscottkey #anacreoninheaven #blm #blacksinamerica #aboriginal #indigenous #woke #wokeaf #kaepernick #whattheywontteachyou #americanhistory #worldhistory #history #blackhistory #sex insta topsy.oneCaptured this photo this morning reminds me of the first verse to my countryLooking for the thrill of sky diving?

The #StarSpangledBanner” should be dropped as the American #nationalanthem because it’s “#racist,” says the president of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (#NAACP) in #California and #Hawaii.

The regional head of the black advocacy organization, #AliceHuffman, brought up the idea at a recent NAACP state convention.

We’re protesting this racist song that has caused so much controversy in America, and we’re just trying to get it removed,” she said, WMTW reported. “So, whatever comes out in the future as a national anthem, we can all stand proudly and sing it.”
The California NAACP wants to introduce a resolution to state lawmakers that proposes abolishing the current national anthem.

Huffman said the NAACP has nothing against the flag the early 19th-century song celebrates. Her beef is with the song’s third stanza, which is less known because only the first stanza is commonly sung.

It reads: “And where is that band who so vauntingly swore

That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion,

A home and a country, should leave us no more?

Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.

No refuge could save the hireling and slave

From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:

And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave,

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.” “If you look at it, there’s no way you can think it meant anything great for African-Americans,” Huffman said, apparently referring to the lines about “the hireling and slave” upon whom the author wished “terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave.” The author, however, didn’t refer to hirelings and #slaves in general, but to a very specific group, explained #MarkClague, musicologist and professor of music history, American culture, African and AfroAmerican studies, and entrepreneurship at the University of Michigan in a 2016 CCN op-ed.

The lyrics of “The Star-Spangled Banner” were written by #FrancisScottKey, a lawyer and an amateur poet. In 1814, Key witnessed the bombardment of #FortMcHenry by #British gunships during the #BattleofBaltimore. insta topsy.oneHappy Bicentennial to my Church, founded by early patriots like Francis Scott Key, author of the Star Spangled Banner.
