Sign a Petition to Make “Dipset Anthem” the New National Anthem
Ironically enough, the idea of America being the "land of the free" could one day lead to the song those words inhabit no longer being the National Anthem. Recently, a man named Dero Anthony used his freedom of speech to try and do just that.
On Friday, Anthony started an online petition to have Dipset's eponymous track "Dipset Anthem" replace Francis Scott Key's "Star Spangled Banner" as the National Anthem. "The current National Anthem is BS," reads Anthony's very straightforward description for his petition. The petition already has over 1700 signatures.
With Anthony's petition gaining a bit of momentum, we have to wonder how Colin Kaepernick would feel about signing it. After all, it was probably his decision to reject the National Anthem at NFL preseason games that inspired Anthony to create the petition in the first place.
“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said, explaining the motivation behind his controversial protest. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
