New Report Says NFL Is Going To Play Black National Anthem Before ‘Star-Spangled Banner’ Opening Week
Liberals are continuing their ridiculously vile campaign to keep folks in America divided along racial lines, having the audacity to infect professional sports, like the National Football League, with their messaging, transforming what was formerly an escape from the madness of the world into just another propaganda machine for their twisted Marxist narrative.
A new report has come out that states the NFL is planning on using the “black national anthem” prior to playing the “Star-Spangled Banner” during the season’s opening week.
Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner:
“Lift Every Voice and Sing,” by J. Rosamond Johnson and James Weldon Johnson, will be played during the pregame ceremony before every Week 1 NFL game in the 2020 season, according to ESPN. The league is also considering additional initiatives to demonstrate its support for players who are trying to raise awareness about systematic racism, including listing the names of victims on uniforms.
The season is scheduled to begin Sept. 10 with a game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Houston Texans.
The plan was reported more than five weeks after protests spread across the country and around the world in response to the death of George Floyd, a 46-year-old black man who died in police custody on Memorial Day after a white Minneapolis police officer, Derek Chauvin, pinned him down by placing a knee on the back of his neck for nearly nine minutes.
When all of this mess started up again this year after Floyd’s death, the NFL, desperate to remain as relevant as possible, came out and said that they didn’t handle the initial wave of protests that happened in 2016 with former quarterback Colin Kaepernick properly. Kaepernick kicked off the “take a knee” form of “protest” where athletes would take a knee during the national anthem to protest against racism and police brutality.
“We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of black people. We, the National Football League, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League, believe Black Lives Matter,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a video statement. “I personally protest with you and want to be part of the much-needed change in this country.”
Nothing is sacred with liberals. We cannot get a break from the indoctrination even in our sports. The brainwashing is reaching absurd levels and it all needs to stop. For the sake of our sanity.
