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

The African American players do not object to the national anthem.
Of course they do. 70% of the players are black and so in the mind of the NFL the national anthem is racist. If that isn't the fact then BLM and Antifa have sure been successful in making it appear to be so.

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.
I think the NFL should demand that all players kneel during that anthem as an apologetic gesture to Colin Kaepernick. In fact it would be great if the NFL commissioner joined them on the field and knelt during the song.

"Demand"

I think they should all line up and suck his... ha ha

You're a clown. 70% of the NFL is black.

I feel a bit lightheaded. Maybe you should drive.
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.
I'm not "threatened" in the least. I am actually rather amused (i.e. "lightened up") by your reasoning here. So blacks are like "rednecks" and "boozers" to you? Interesting.

If it is just like those other songs, what then is the reasoning for enshrining it along side the US national anthem at the start of the NFL games? We certainly wouldn't play "it's five o'clock somewhere" before the games, would we?

Why do you suppose it is that you need to project "fear" onto your political opponents?

Then demanded the opposite before.

On May 23, 2018, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and all NFL team owners, except for two that abstained from voting in a show of hand voting process, approved a new policy that would require all players to stand during the national anthem or be given the option to stay in the locker room during the national anthem.


So why not ?

I say they should.

I say the NFL is now black owned in all but deed. The NFL should do as the massa says. I cannot and will not argue against that. I haven't even really followed the NFL for 20 some years and now same for the NBA. Biggest waste of time of my life in time spent after High school. I wish I could have all that time back now. To have invested it in something real other than spectating.

Being a spectator is the worst thing in the world. Call yourself a sports fan and I want to vomit.

Hopefully there will never be another NFL game, NBA as well.
Spend all those salaries on reparations:)

"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...…...
Sure there is. “Lift Every Voice and Sing” has been known as the Black national anthem for decades.

Now if you would only wise up like that in regards being a Trump fan.


The world would be a better place.

“Donald Trump is the first President in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people—does not even pretend to try.”-James Mattis
After Obama divided Americans even if Trump tried he couldn't unite Americans, that ship left the dock in 2009 and never sailing back.

What’s wrong with uniting people? What’s wrong with “one nation under God?”
Why so divisive? Why pretend this nation is so mean that we have to appease separatist and supremacist forces like this?
Uniting people starts with respecting and including everyone ... even those who don’t share your race.

So, blacks have their own anthem, history month, beauty pageant, etc but if whites try that whites are Racist!

Oh, and they can't call themselves Americans, they claim to be African-Americans and never been to Africa!

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.
No, it’s a *response* to the U.S.’s failure to include Blacks in its promises of “liberty and justice for all.”

How are they going to pay reparations without the revenue generated from the games ?

Are you saying you want team owners to pay reparations out of their own assets ?
