Since it's an illegitimate national anthem (unless someone can prove to me that a country named Black does, in fact, exist), it's a racial anthem, designed to foster division, and alienation, among blacks in America, by making them believe that they're not Americans, but members of another nationality, one based on race. If you still don't see anything wrong with a Black National Anthem, then imagine if it was called the White National Anthem.

See multiculturalism
See fifth column
Dosen't a Black National Anthem set the civil rights movement back well over 50 years? I mean, if having blacks sing one national anthem, and having everyone else sing another is not segregation, then I don't know what is.

Anyway, I bet the Russian translation of the Black National Anthem begins with something like "Soyuz nerushimy respublik...".

Yes that sounds so damn racist.
Really white people should get a damn life, and realize that black people who are descents of slaves in america are also an ethnic group known as the diaspora. Anyway hence Black National Anthem.
