We weren’t even aware that there was something called the “black national anthem,” but apparently there is. And, ESPN reported, the song, Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing, is expected to be played or performed live before every Week 1 NFL game. Moreover, it’s planned to be played BEFORE the Star-Spangled Banner, the REAL national anthem, in what is obviously an intentional act of disrespect.
Having recently displayed increased awareness about the problems of systemic racism, the NFL, in collaboration with the NFL Players Association, is also considering listing the names of victims on uniforms through decals on helmets or patches on jerseys. The NFL also may produce educational programs about victims, among other plans.
Early last month, commissioner Roger Goodell in a video admitted that the league had erred in how it handled peaceful NFL player protests of police brutality and systemic oppression. Goodell condemned racism and affirmed that Black lives matter, pledging his allegiance to the players in the battle for equal justice under the law.
Also in June, the league revealed plans to increase its social justice footprint by pledging to donate $250 million over a 10-year period.
Of course, people have questions, and concerns:
Followed by the white anthem, Hispanic anthem, Asian anthe….no?

I don’t want anyone kneeling for the black national anthem but I would like to know what would happen if someone did kneel. I’m quite sure the pro-kneeling people would be very very very inconsistent in their support of kneeling for anthems.

I thought the national anthem represented all races and ethnicities though
This just makes more division?

You have got to be kidding me! So @NFL can you also play the Mexican anthem and Japanese and Korean anthems prior to game as well???

We can’t help but wonder what this is going to do to the NFL’s bottom line. Remember the reaction to players kneeling for the national anthem? This certainly isn’t going to go over too well…
