VIDEO: Jill Scott changed lyrics national anthem in America for black and colored people during Essence Fest

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Jill Scott changed national anthem in America for black and colored people during Essence Fest.

Jill Scott, an R&B singer and D-list actress, recently changed the lyrics to the National Anthem while performing a disgusting, anti-American version of the song. While she may have thought it was clever, all the ridiculous performance showed is her addiction to wanting to feel oppressed while being hypocritical.

Scott’s two-minute bashing of America came on the second day of the Essence Festival which focused on the perceived systemic racism in the country. If you’re like me and didn’t know Essence existed until just this moment, it’s a black-owned media company out of Brooklyn that apparently has a big enough following to host a multi-day festival.

"I love Jill Scott. She is the pride of Philadelphia and an icon. This is so heartbreaking for me to see," Mannarino wrote on Twitter. "I could name you every song she's ever done. This might be a bridge too far for me though. So sad to see her go this route. She is so talented. She doesn't need to go this route."


Essence shared the video of Scott’s incredibly dramatic song calling it “the only National Anthem we will be recognizing from this day forward.” So, here we have an American media company openly bashing the country it’s found success in. The words moronic and hypocritical come to mind.

Here are the lyrics to Scott’s ‘national anthem’ for those who don’t want to watch her tired, slow performance:

“Oh say can you see by the blood in the streets / That this place doesn’t smile on you colored child / Whose blood built this land with sweat and their hands / But we’ll die in this place and your memory erased / Oh say, does this truth hold any weight / This is not the land of the free, but the home of the slaves!”

But while some commended Scott for her take on the song, others were angered by her decision to use the anthem to express a critical view of America.

"No one should use the National Anthem to express their hatred for America. Too many men and women have sacrificed their lives for our great nation to tolerate this," Republican Representative Lauren Boebert of Colorado tweeted. "Shameful."

Another Republican, former Florida congressional candidate Lavern Spicer, slammed Scott for her "WOKE rendition" on "how oppressed Black people are," noting the singer's estimated net worth and asking, "In what way is she oppressed?'
