Report: NFL Expected to Play Black National Anthem Before Season Opening Games

The NFL reportedly plans to play a song titled, Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing, also known as the Black National Anthem, prior to every season opening game this year.

The song, according to a source to ESPN, will be played prior to the Star-Spangled-Banner.

According to ESPN:

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.

The league hopes its efforts demonstrate ‘a genuine commitment to the public, players and coaches and that player voices continue to be heard,’ the source wrote in a text message. ‘This is key to educating fans, and becoming a prominent voice in the fight to end racism.’

The NFL is also reportedly considering other social justice measures, such as listing the names of victims of alleged police brutality on team uniforms.

Well shucks. Not that I was planning on supporting any nfl crap anymore anyway. First rule of hole. When you can't see out. QUIT digging. Sadly, there are plenty of fans that will still be sucked in.

Bill Clinton knew every word of every stanza, including the part about God (which will quickly be abandoned).

Since it’s intentionally exclusionary, shouldn’t white players take a knee?

Lift Every Voice And Sing was written in 1900 to celebrate Lincoln’s freeing the slaves:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QU8921j20e8
Just saying.

Didn’t the networks decide to stop showing the national anthem on TV? I wonder if they will refuse to show the black national anthem.

The left hates the national anthem and wants it gone from sporting events. This is the replacement.

Just change the name from NFL to BLF!

BLF = Black Lives Football and ban anyone, who is not 100% black from attending or buying BLF uniforms/tees.

Just close the stadiums to only BLMFans.

It would be racist to NOT show the Black National Anthem. After that anthem, as they get ready for the Star Spangled Banner, they will cut to a commercial break.

Black National Anthem? Never heard of it.

Is it “JUST LOOKING FOR A HANDOUT?” (words not appropriate here)

or “GIBS ME DAT!” over and over again.

The NFL commissioner was and is a huge leftist, when the 5 Dallas police officers were murdered by the blm nut he wouldn’t allow Dallas to honor them.

Screw the NFL and the NBA

Anyone that stands for it is disrespecting the National Anthem.
