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

After Obama divided Americans even if Trump tried he couldn't unite Americans, that ship left the dock in 2009 and never sailing back.
Obama “divided Americans” by being Black and President, which some found unacceptable. Trump does it by deliberately appealing to our basest tribalist instincts.

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?
No one would have the temerity to play a “white anthem” or refer to anything as “white” before a professional sports event. Calling anything that marginalizes the others races and gives the obvious air of superiority. The concept is rejected out of hand though a selective black preference, pandering, is now declared as racial outreach. It’s demeaning and accomplished nothing. It’s this dim brand of thinking that makes the idea of reparations palatable as some sort of white atonement.

Uniting people starts with respecting and including everyone ... even those who don’t share your race.
They already have that. The league’s racial parity and pay structure goes far beyond any demand for the NFL to show unity and respect.

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 ?
Evidently all the owners are multi-millionaires and the amount they pay players to throw or catch a football could pay the reparations they cry for and yes, if the owners can own black players let them pay from their own assets. Don't you want to eat those rich folks?

Team owners pay those players to sell tickets and generate TV revenue not because they want to see people catch and throw balls.

Well, blacks have unity on killing blacks and with it being the 4th I'm sure all blue inner cities see much black on black murders this weekend as every weekend and days.

Obama was more white than black and was raised in a white communist culture, his policies were his biggest problems, not the color of his skin. What "tribalist" instincts?

Reparations means fixing the damage. Which needs to happen. It’s not about “white atonement.” It’s about everyone having access to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

A “white anthem” would be about continuing the historic pattern of racial exclusion. A “Black anthem” means including others alongside the dominant whites.

Every one that was a Slave should get 40 acres and a mule, other than the slaves no one else deserves anything, period.

Malcolm’s Nation of Islam and Organization of Afro-American Unity did much to cut down on street Crime.
