What Do You Think Of The Nuestro Himno(controversy Over The Spanish Anthem) by ldollier(f): 2:08pm On May 23, 2006
Recently, in the USA a new anthem entitled "the Nuestro himno" was recorded. The Anthem which is the spanish version of the star spangled banner(America's National Anthem http://www.150.si.edu/chap3/flag.htm) has caused a lot of controversy in the senate.

many people argue that the Anthem(The Nuestro himno) does not represent the united states, while some argue that the Anthem is a way for spanish speakers to learn english.

my question now is, do you think that the Spanish version of America's national Anthem should be played at any sport events held in the United States.

keep in mind that Senate has now said that English is the offical language of the United states.

i personally think that the Nuestro himno should be banned, although it is currently playing in the media. i say this because the United states is a melting pot in the sense that a lot of nationalities are represented in this country. if the spanish version of our anthem were allowed to be played at various sport events, how would other countries feel?

an Anthem is the symbol of country, which represents the hardship they face to gain indepedence(in some cases). i understand that the latin singers recorded the anthem in the light of the immigration reforms thats being looked over in the senate.

the fact of the matter is that, hispanics are not the only nationality in the united states. if congress allows the Anthem to be played in sports events, then its going to cause an uproar in the country. because other countries would feel segregated.

It is only the hispanics because of their huge voting power who have now begun to feel that US citizenship is their right by virtue of living at the US borders. A spanish version of the US anthem is an insult to all other nationalities that make up the US. Soon we shall have the italian, german, nigerian and irish versions of the US anthem.

Illegal immigrants must go! It takes Nigerians and Africans in general years of pure hell and a lucky few to be able to live in the USA, we have not waved our flags and demanded the right to citizenship! If Latinos have come here illegally they have to go home! The same pple demanding paths to citizenship are busy deporting africans and other illegal immigrants in their own countries, what hypocrisy. Let themm first give us an english version of their own anthems!
