[VIDEO] NFL Protest And The Shocking History Of Our National Anthem

Find Out The Shocking Connection Between NFL Protest, The National Anthem and Slavery

 

This video was originally published in 2016 during the early months of his protest. Journalist Ben Swann says the Star Spangled Banner is linked to slavery and that not all men were exactly free during the time of the songs creation:

People have gone to Twitter to disavow the anthem:

 

Here’s that not-so-known third verse:

“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.“
