Josh Howard, Mavericks NBA player and Obama supporter doesn’t celebrate July Fourth

In a video posted on YouTube, Josh Howard is shown at Allen Iverson’s charity flag football game in July. When the national anthem is being sung, various participants are shown mugging for the camera. When the camera gets to Howard, he says: ” ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ is going on. I don’t celebrate this [expletive (shit?)]. I’m black.”

Why doesn't Obama put his hand on his heart for the National Anthem? Is is a Black Power statement?

Why?

Howard goes on to make a comment that includes praise for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. Why didn’t the mainstream media report this back in July or even August? No wonder people are dropping their newspaper subscriptions.
