Two days ago an African-American singer belted out "Lift Every Voice and Sing", known as the "Black National Anthem". What makes this news its that it was part of Denver's State of the City ceremony, and she was supposed to be singing the "Star Spangled Banner". Since then the airwaves have pulsed with punditry but here, silence. Why might this be?
I do not seek to interpret this silence. I am posing a question for you all. How significant is this event?
It is interesting to note that the talking heads are all going after Obama to throw the singer under a bus...
