NFL to play a (ahem) Black National Anthem before first week games.

I wonder how many white people will take a knee during such tomfoolery.
I guarantee the NFL will hit players with sanctions who would dare have the audacity to kneel during it.
The NFL is trolling their own fans and testing the limits of their tolerance and patience.
Another eye-roll moment in professional sports. So done with the PC pandering.

Wasn't aware there was a Black National Anthem

NFL just put a fork in their burnt chicken
"Wasn't aware there was a Black National Anthem."

There isn't.

But I am sure some song "self-identifies" as one, so there you go...…...

“Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” will be performed live or played before “The Star-Spangled Banner” prior to each NFL game during Week 1 and the league is considering putting names of victims of police brutality on helmet decals or jersey patches, a person familiar with the discussions told The Associated Press.

The person said the league is working collaboratively with players to recognize victims of systemic racism throughout the season in a variety of ways. The person spoke to the AP on Thursday on condition of anonymity because discussions between the league and the NFL Players Association are ongoing.

Additional plans include the use of educational programs and storytelling about the victims and their families similar to the league’s PSA on Botham Jean released in January and the Super Bowl commercial on Corey Jones featuring his cousin, former NFL star Anquan Boldin.

“Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” is traditionally known as the Black anthem. It’ll be played first when the Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs host the Houston Texans to kick off the NFL regular season on Sept. 10.

I wonder how many white people will take a knee during such tomfoolery.
I guarantee the NFL will hit players with sanctions who would dare have the audacity to kneel during it.

If the NFL want's to recognize the difficulties blacks suffer at the hands of Democrats, and separate it from the Star Spangled Banner, which Colin Kaepernick should have proposed from the first place rather than take a knee, that would have been better, but their are other issue that lead to more deaths in democratic segregated cities which should also be addressed, and if they are also addressing the south side, the fourth ward. CHOP ect, then I support this action.

I'd never heard it before...
Were you thinking this song is full of racist sentiment and hatred for whites?

Lift ev'ry voice and sing
'Til earth and heaven ring
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the list'ning skies
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on 'til victory is won
Stony the road we trod
Bitter the chastening rod
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died
Yet with a steady beat
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered
Out from the gloomy past
'Til now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast
God of our weary years
God of our silent tears
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way
Thou who has by Thy might
Led us into the light
Keep us forever in the path, we pray
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee
Shadowed beneath Thy hand
May we forever stand
True to our God
True to our native land

If there is a “Black Anthem”, shouldn’t it be called “Lift only some voices and sing”?? I mean, of we’re now at the point where we segregate even anthems...what the heck.

The division in this country is rampant.

The current president is the most divisive in history. He has no interest in bringing all Americans together and healing old wounds, instead he stokes those divisions.

Vote for Biden for the sake of the Unites States of America!
