The National Anthem? Josh Howard 'Doesn't Celebrate That [expletive]'

Mark Cuban may want to huddle up with Josh Howard at some point and explain the implications of talking on camera in the YouTube generation. The scene is the Allen Iverson Celebrity Summer Classic flag football game this past July, featuring all of your favorite celebrities; DeAngelo Hall, Larry Johnson, Nate Burleson, Marques Hagans, Nelly, MoNique, and a host of others. Someone's shooting a homemade video during the National Anthem, and the Mavericks' Howard shows up at about the 1:43 mark and gives his views on the song, and politics in general. Video following the jump.

From You Been Blinded:

"The Star Spangled Banner's going on right now and I don't celebrate that [expletive]. I'm black."

Then Howard says something else about Barack Obama that I can't quite make out, and the camera mercifully pans away, leaving us to wonder, um, couldn't you have just said 'Hi, mom?'

Probably all that hanging out with Devean George, turned him into a total nutcase...

Because it really isn't that great of a song. Sorry. Musically, I think it sucks. Hendrix did it well, so did Whitney and Marvin. But otherwise, not a fan. Too difficult to perform, as the character of Belize pointed out in Tony Kushner's Angels in America:

"The white cracker who wrote the national anthem knew what he was doing. He set the word 'free' to a note so high nobody can reach it. That was deliberate. Nothing on earth sounds less like freedom to me."

But never mind the theatre. The point is just because someone ages ago decided that something would be our "national anthem," doesn't automatically instill in it respect and admiration, nor is enjoying it a requirement for being a citizen of a country. Dress it up all you want, it's still just a friggin' song. Nothing on earth sounds less like America than trying to run off people who don't agree with you...especially over a damned song.

Josh has every right to feel the way he does and isn't necessarily wrong or stupid to feel that way.

He IS stupid for not having the common sense to realize that a charity event isn't the time to be making controversial political statements, especially (as Dime put it) "after smoking weed, throwing a party on the night before a playoff game, getting arrested for going 94 mph in a 55 mph zone, and then complaining about getting negative press at a charity softball game."

3 out of those last 4 things was pure stupidity while the other was stupid because he actually talked about it.

That man is slowly disappearing into the Tyson zone.

He doesn't seem to have any trouble cashing that check from America though.

What an idiot. I couldn't imagine having to be in the locker room or playing with that guy. He's just dwindled down into sheer stupidity and ignorance.
