U. Houston prof: Pledge of Allegiance, National Anthem ‘ignore’ America’s racist history

The University of Houston’s Gerald Horne believes that collective America does not acknowledge the darkest moments of its history — because we still recite the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem.

A professor of history and African-American Studies, Horne says the Pledge is the post-Civil War “glue” that served to bind together this “artificially-constructed former slaveholders’ republic.”

Formally adopted during World War II, Horne contends the Pledge again played into the need for national unity, “not least because a substantial percentage of the citizenry, particularly those of African descent, were subjected to routine atrocities.”
