In celebration of all things sunny, and to promote an enriched environment, Parking Suns now features every Sunday a different YouTube music clip about the sun!
Today we listen to a funky version of “The Star Spangled Banner“ sung by Sheila E. and many friends.
Of course, the song refers twice to the sun (“Oh, say can you see, by the dawn’s early light” and “…at the twilight’s last gleaming.”) But mostly I’m including it this week because the news media have been carrying story after story of NFL players who refuse to stand during the national anthem at the start of a game, as a means of protesting ongoing inequality and racial discrimination in the USA.
The issue entered the big time this week when President Donald Trump stepped into the fray and said any player who knelt during the national anthem is a “son of a bitch” and should be fired.
