Jesus Christ . . . the point is that people are whining about the national anthem, and "America the Beautiful" is not the national anthem.

@blueveinedthrobber,
I figured there would be backlash for the use of Spanish but I never considered they would think it was the national anthem.

Despite the obvious mistake the message comes through. Or you geniuses missed it.

@boomerang,
Good point Boomerang, but I think what most people are upset about is how our country is no longer the Great Melting Pot, it has become more of a tossed salad. I was a little shocked to see the commercial, but I also wasn't surprised.

@coldjoint,
The "message" is ignorant, on several levels.

@coldjoint,
So, Strom Thurmond, Jesse Helms, Trent Lott, etc., were the true friends of black Americans? Drunk Rolling Eyes Laughing

(No, I'm not a "progressive." I'm just a moderate, a centrist. I'm not popular here at A2K. I voted for McCain in 2008 and didn't vote in 2014. Because Palin's such an idiot, I now wish I hadn't voted in 2008 either.)

So if all these "minorities" were assimilating into white America it would be a melting pot but if whites are asked to assimilate even a little into THEIR cultures it's a tossed salad? riiiight. Might white of ya .

Thank u, Butrflynet. I had an accident some time ago,
after which my hearing has not been a lot to brag about. (Sometimes I miss some spoken words.)
