There's A Petition For A New National Anthem

There is now a petition for the government to change the national anthem to "America the Beautiful." Francis Scott Key wrote a poem that then became the lyrics to "The Star Spangled Banner.

Key was a slave owner so now people want to change the anthem. The petition claims in addition to the racist lyrics, "The Star Spangled Banner" contains racism, elitism and sexism.

The petition says "America the Beautiful" will celebrate brotherhood within our borders, deference to natural resources and more.
