Remember when I told you about Grammy-winning singer Anita Baker’s proud appearance at racist loon and Nation of Islam leader, Minister Louis Farrakhan’s Detroit Confab of Hate? She sang the separatist Black National Anthem, there.
Well, her concurrence with racism and bigotry doesn’t seem to have hurt her much. Tonight, she’s singing the National Anthem prior to tonight’s Game 5 of the NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals at The Palace of Auburn Hills.
So, will it be the American National Anthem . . . or the Black National Anthem (which she sang with Farrakhan)?
I like Detroit Pistons owner William Davidson (who, full disclosure, contributed the max to both of my campaigns for the Michigan House), but as a proud American and a proud Jew (and he’s also a Republican who supports the War in Iraq), he should be ashamed of inviting this woman to grace his arena.
