The NFL will reportedly play “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” which is also known as the black national anthem, before every Week 1 NFL game in the 2020 season, according to ESPN.

The decision to play the song comes following the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, which led to nationwide protests over racial inequality and police brutality.

According to the ESPN report, the song will be played before “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

so the NFL is in full pander mode.

What’s next, demands that the NFL do affirmative action, so that a majority of players are black?

Actually there is. I was taught it in 5th grade at a HBC. But what in the hell is an NFL?

I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can’t deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung, want to pull up tough
‘Cause you notice that butt was stuffed

If white folk start singing “The Star Spangled Banner”, will they be arrested?

"black national anthem"

This is part of a black separatism movement.

It comes from a feeling of superiority and entitlement.

But will the players take a knee? Or maybe stay in the dressing room? I will not know the answer to these questions because I will not be watching.

Admit it, you’re a time traveler from the past, aren’t you?

Do I get a week where they play power to the whites national anthem or is that considered KKK

if blacks can go Black Power I fail to see why whites can’t go White Power
This whole thing makes me sick

some kid flashes an okay sign at a football game that is part of some college game...and the left goes berserk

We scoffed at the notion that a 13% minority can lord it over an 87% majority.

WRONG!!!!

The only way to stop this BS is to not watch any sport supporting the radical BLM/Antifa movement.
I have been a serious football fan for nearly all my life. I am done with it. In fact, I view anyone that claims they love/support American and continues to watch the NFL as complete frauds.
