Officials in Denver learned a valuable lesson for anyone putting on a public event, know where the power switch is, and be ready to turn it off in an emergency. Denver singer Rene Marie created such an emergency at the Mayor’s state-of-the-city address the other day, when she changed the lyrics to the national anthem she had been invited to sing.
As disrespectful and attention-grabbing was her stunt, I am amazed that officials present, including Denver’s current mayor, stood there with their mouths open and DID NOTHING! How about interrupting her? Had she exposed her breasts would they also not have known what to do?
This is not about Marie being black, or what she sang in place of our anthem. She is a selfish bozo who deserves to start her singing career at the beginning, where artists establish the trust of their sponsors and audience. She speaks poorly for no one but herself. She revealed no secret feelings of blacks towards this country. Anyone who pays this woman to sing deserves red ink and the unemployment line, right behind her.
And I am not worried about the anthem. It's lasted this long. For those who want to blow this into a race issue – forget about it. Sometimes people just do stupid things. Rene Marie is just stupid.
