I Know What It Means to be Red, White, and Blue

The National Minority Anthem

Catch a hardworking,
talented, awesome
Entertaining minority
by the toe
If he can sing in English
Let him go

A long day in the cotton
Another bale of hay
Wrong turn down an
And the heat's on today
Got to run to catch up
With the Jones

Nobody said you had a free ride
Takin my family, my music, my pride
Into their hands, they took it away so I moved
to the city and here I will stay
Keepin with me the dream of singin my song
If you listen you'll hear me even when I am gone

My public, my passion, my liberty bells
Now the glory crowd gathers, the glitter, the swells
With song all around me
Applauding and new
And I know what it means
to be Red, White, and Blue

Please be open when viewing the movie. It starts off with potentially offensive material but it is necessary as a foundation for the presentation of the later information.

Heavy stuff -- this Central bank, One World 'conspiracy', Fed Reserve ought to be overthrown etc. as it relates to the country's international economic standing and where it is headed...

I started watching the video (found nothing offensive so far) but will pick it up later after the busy weekend is over. -t.t.
