No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Star Spangled Banner was written by an actual slave owner (Francis Scott Key) who wrote the above words most probably because he took joy in their deaths during the War of 1812 - When the British locally recruited slaves and former slaves against the Americans.
I will begrudge nobody who refuses to stand for that.
