Regarding “Racial injustice themes filled empty NFL stadiums. See Sunday’s most striking gestures.” (Sept. 14): The last time I checked, African-Americans are a people and not a nation. I’m referring to “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which has been called the Black national anthem. America’s National Anthem is for everybody. I thought we were supposed to be inclusive and not exclusive. What’s next? An Asian or Hispanic national anthem?
