Alfonzo Rachel is one of my newest favorite cultural commentators. He is young, hip, and funny. I just found out that he also plays a mean guitar.
Rachel's commentary concerning unorthodox versions of "The Star-Spangled Banner," especially Jimi Hendrix's version, is interesting. He maintains it's that our American Experiment that allows people flexibility to express themselves differently, and that we should consider "changing our approach" to cultural engagement.
Rachel's commentary goes well with Eric Metaxas's commentary about LifeWay Christian Stores pulling "The Blind Side" of their shelves.
