The ‘Black national anthem’ performed by Andra Day at the Super Bowl sparks a furor on the internet.

While many Super Bowl viewers couldn’t agree on whether Reba’s version of the national anthem was the best ever or needed improvement,

many online users thought the same thing about Andra Day’s rendition of the Black national song, ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing.’

The Black national anthem has been played during the Super Bowl pregame ceremonies for the fourth time.

Sung for the first time in 1900, the song encapsulates ‘the solemn yet hopeful appeal for the liberty of Black Americans.’

Adopted by the NAACP, ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ was ‘widely utilized as a rallying cry during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.’

Though criticism of Day’s performance was all over the internet in the days before her appearance, the remarks posted after Day sang her interpretation were far more insightful.

Republican congressman Rep. Mike Loychik stated on X that ‘there is no such thing as a black national anthem.’

‘The great and beautiful Star Spangled Banner unites all Americans.’The purpose of the Super Bowl is to unite us. The NFL’s decision to promote racial divisive politics once more is shameful.

‘There is no place for the so-called Black National Anthem at the Super Bowl. Everyone is included in the national anthem that we currently have. Kelly Megyn tweeted.

I wasn’t educated as a child that the National Anthem was only for White people or Black people. It was explained to us that it applied to all Americans.

The purpose of a black national anthem is to further divide black Americans, not to offer them a voice.

It’s time for us to start acting like we are all Americans, regardless of color, another commenter stated.Some even made remarks about how unenthusiastic the crowd was.
