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

The Washington NFL franchise might be named the Washington George Floyd’s soon. Lol...The only reason the NFL owners are pandering to black Americans is because they are afraid that all of their players could quit and form their own league along with the best white players and put them out of business. Without the players, these owners are worthless. Free market economy at work. The players have all the leverage they need to enact any changes they desire. Poetic justice at work. Same with the NBA.
I appreciate the league selling out its values to a group of pushy SJWs using their talents as leverage for their own social issues. But no league has gone up against the NFL with any level of success. The same would apply here. It’s unneeded asskissing at a whole new level.

Balderdash. Comparing two unrelated cases from six years apart to demonstrate this implied racism and blaming the police is far from a unifying principle. It’s a false construct being used by a social reform group that doesn’t appreciate American values like equality or capitalism.
Trump’s words from Mt Rushmore were more truthful and far more unifying. Did you listen last night?
Balderash. (Good word, my grandpa used to use it).

Trump's speech was full of lies and hate.


Trump's incendiary Mount Rushmore speech criticized for 'peddling fiction'

President Trump Pushes Racial Division, Flouts Coronavirus Rules at Mt. Rushmore Speech

At Mount Rushmore, Trump exploits social divisions, warns of ‘left-wing cultural revolution’ in dark speech ahead of Independence Day

Etc.

I know you won't agree with those assessments but the existence of such headlines across major publications makes it impossible to argue the speech wasn't divisive.

The Democrats are not uniting, they’re decisive. Trump is not uniting, he’s divisive. At least he’s better at doing things right for the country. I don’t see rankings as to who’s the “most divisive”. Oh well.
I do expect it from politicians, I don’t expect to see it in professional sports.
See the difference?
Then there is this


Play the short video.

Sorry I couldn't find a direct link to it.

Yes, I agree. This is just worthless "virtue signalling" by billionaires trying to keep from losing their revenue streams. Personally, I'm okay with eliminating the National Anthem at sporting events. That makes sense. But at least it was (ostensibly) aimed at American patriotism. Which (presumably) includes African AMERICANS. What I don't get is why we need to start playing the "black national anthem" which isn't, you know, "designed to be national" at all, but rather is segregationist. It implies acceptance of the concept that African Americans have no reason to be considered as part of "one America" and instead need their own, parallel "nationalism" separate and apart from the rest of us. Sounds like a "slippery slope" to me.

That song is not in any way shape or form, segregationist.

You ought to actually listen to it.

It is too religuious for my tastes, but calling it "Segragationist" is a flat out lie.

In this case, the group of SJWs includes the only valuable stock in trade of the owners, THE PLAYERS, BOTH BLACK AND WHITE. The owners would be idiots not to concede certain meaningless concessions to their players. The days of the baseball reserve clause and the slave owner slave trader relationship between owner and player are over now.

The NFL, MLB and other sports entities have been used as a tool for the military industrial complex to drum up support for the idiotic wars started by war profiteering scumbags since the ‘50s here in America. There is absolutely no reason in my opinion to start every major sporting event with nationalistic songs and military color guards or war plane flyovers.

That’s always seemed a little Hitler/Stalin/Kim Jong Ilush to me. I also noticed that it got ramped up as Cheney/Bush were selling their bloody, multi trillion dollar turd hunt in Iraq. Suddenly there were full dress military guys coming out for the 7th inning stretch singing another partiotic anthem instead of take me out to the fvcken ball game.

Neither Baseball, Football, Basketball, Hockey or any other major sporting event will be diminished one bit by changing up the pregame music or presentations. It’s about time. The war is over!

The league shouldn’t be doing it at all. Playing something designated as a “black national anthem” at all is in itself a segregationist act which is totally unnecessary. The fact is the league should be interested in unifying the players, all making money in a free capitalist society. Pretending there are different values or different anthems for different colors is simply counterproductive.

Playing the song will unify the players, that is the point. Lighten up.

What the NFL really should do is apologize publically for how wrong their stance on the kaapernik take a knee protests was.

You just don’t get that Capitalism is not any more an American value than Communism or socialism Dino. International crony capitalism is as un American as anything I can think of. It is designed to circumvent personal freedom and free enterprise by bribing public officials in order to have free reign over over it‘s subjects. Once again, the principles our nation were founded upon are personal freedom and free enterprise, not capatilism or any other ism.

What? Decrying the US was a proper move by Kaepernick and should have been tolerated by the league while being roundly criticized by fans?
I love when posters voluntarily show they just don’t get it.

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.
What is the Black National Anthem?

The NFL don't televise the Anthem since the kneeling. I don't care what happens before kick off. If it bothers You, you aren't a football fan to begin with.

LOL! I can't believe you were able to type that with a straight face. Racial divisions? Lies and hate? WTF is BLACK Lives Matter riots? demands for Reparations? Efforts to destroy the vestiges of our history based on bogus claims that the country was "founded" on slavery? The psychobabble of "implicit racism?" It is all effing neo-segregationism is what it is!

The fact that it is a) referred to as the "black national anthem" and b) only being added in a nod to the African American players' objections to the "white" national anthem, both make it part of the neo-segregationism that is currently a big part of the DNC platform.

You are 100% correct, of course. If only you could muster half as much indignity over the left's neo-marxism that seeks to continue the steady erosion of our "personal freedoms and free enterprise" then you'd really be on to something, Jack!

Hope you are having a happy 4th!

Being against racism and hate does not make you a racist or a hater.

People on the right always try to turn it on its head. In truly orwellian fashion, and say that groups like BLM, the ADL. and the SPLC, who oppose racism and hate and work for social justice, are the real racists and haters. The right is so Orwellian these days.

Ridiculous

Ridiculous.

The African American players do not object to the national anthem.

That is a lie.

The NFL is what 70% black players? What's your problem with them playing anthems or doing anythng for their black players? As they say possession is 9 tenths of the law.

20 some years ago I quit being a fan of sports. What a waste of time in the end. Play the game and stop being a spectator is what Americans should be about. The rows of old fat white guys in the stands projecting themselves into pro players is sad. :0)

Then why do they need their own?
It is not literally a separate national anthem, calling it that is an expression, like saying "Sweet Home Alabama" is the red neck national anthem, or "its five o'clock somewhere" is the boozers national anthem.

Sheesh, you are kidding right?

Lighten up.

You seem so threatened.
