Thoughts on the clash of worldviews at the Grammys and the Super Bowl.

Last Sunday was Super Sunday, and country singer Chris Stapleton brought players and viewers alike to tears with his soulful performance of our national anthem ahead of Super Bowl LVII.

But prior to Stapleton’s rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the woke corporate leadership of the National Football League also chose to feature actress/singer Sheryl Lee Ralph performing the so-called “black national anthem,” the 1905 tune “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

Could there be any more disheartening evidence that America is two countries now: not black and white, but Left and Right? Yes, the NFL has included this obsequious nod to the corrosive Black Lives Matter movement prior to every game of the 2022 season, but the Super Bowl was the biggest pop culture event of the year, with a viewership of more than 113 million and an international audience. We just broadcast a clear message to the world, as well as to our own citizens, that black Americans are apparently so disenfranchised here that they have a separate national anthem, because “The Star-Spangled Banner” apparently applies only to whites.

Darrell B. Harrison, a Biblical counselor and the Dean of Social Media at Grace to You, the media ministry of John MacArthur, nailed it on Twitter:

Division, of course, is the point. This ugly lie being sold to our young people and to minorities by the anti-American Left is designed not to confront and heal any racial divide, but to exacerbate it and to “rub raw the resentments” of the purportedly marginalized, to quote the radical strategist Saul Alinsky.
