One of the things that makes America beautiful is the rich mixture of different cultures and languages that we are blessed with. The recent Coca-Cola commercial during the Super Bowl is a wonderful example of that. To hear the iconic "America The Beautiful" sung in a medley of languages, and through a variety of cultures, is a joyful example of what we really are.
It is so sad to see the conservative media take this event and turn it into a hateful attack on Coca-Cola and, more so, on what is represented by the commercial. These purveyors of stupidity and xenophobia display their ignorance by confusing "America The Beautiful" with our National Anthem. What is sadder is the realization that so many Americans buy into those concepts without even thinking how ignorant and hateful they are. To quote the late Pete Seeger: "Oh, when will they ever learn?"
