Kari Lake sparks debate due to her stance on “Black National Anthem”

A picture of former Arizona Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake at the Super Bowl LVII has gone viral due to her stance taken against the black national anthem.

The Black national anthem was played ahead of The Super Bowl, which was played on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

The black anthem, which is called “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” sparked heated debate across several social media platforms.

Lake could be seen sitting down as the anthem was played.

“I’m against a ‘black National Anthem’ for the same reason I am against a ‘white National Anthem,’ a ‘gay National Anthem,’ a ‘straight National Anthem,’ a ‘Jewish National Anthem,’ a ‘Christian National Anthem,’ and so on,” Lake told Fox News during an interview on Monday.

“We are ONE NATION, under God. Francis Scott Key’s words ring true for every single American Citizen regardless of their skin color. James Weldon Johnson’s ‘Lift Your Voice’ is a beautiful song, but it is not our National Anthem,” Lake went onto say.

“Never been easier to be a hero these days,” one user wrote in response to the photo of Lake seated during the song.

Another Twitter user stated: “Good for her. No one should support this. It was created to divide the country.”

Zeek Arkham tweeted;

My “black” National Anthem is the same anthem I’ve been singing since I was a child. The same one children of all races have been singing. My National Anthem never needed a color. Do they want racism to die, or do they want to keep finding ways to divide us all?
