The New York Yankees and Philadelphia Flyers have announced they will stop playing Kate Smith’s rendition of “God Bless America” after two songs she performed in the 1930s surfaced containing racially charged lyrics. A fan of the Yankees organization brought this matter to the team’s attention and both have since removed any mark of the singer, including taking down her statue outside of Wells Fargo Arena. RT America’s Steve Christakos joins Scottie Nell Hughes to discuss.
