The National Football League, known for its plummeting ratings after coming out in support of anti-White rhetoric, is reportedly planning to replace the “Star-Spangled Banner” with a song nicknamed the “black national anthem” on Opening Day, relegating the American national anthem to the role of following “Lift Every Voice And Sing.”
ESPN reported on Friday that a source confirmed the “black national anthem” would be played before every game in the first week of the season, including the opening daty game between the Houston Texans and Kansas City Chiefs on Sept. 10.
Additionally, “the NFL, in collaboration with the NFL Players Association, is also considering listing the names of victims on uniforms through decals on helmets or patches on jerseys.” Various “victims” championed by Black Lives Matter include convicted felons such as George Floyd and Jacob Blake, as well as individuals who were killed while attacking other people such as Ma’khia Bryant and Trayvon Martin.
The NFL also plans to donate $250 million to racial social justice causes over the next ten years, and is reportedly even looking into creating political video content and “educational programs” to lecture sports fans about black grievance.
Earlier this year, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell released a video praising Black Lives Matter “We, the National Football League, condemn racism and the systematic oppression of black people,” Goodell said. “We, the National Football League, admit we were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier and encourage all players to speak out and peacefully protest. We, the National Football League, believe that black lives matter.”
“Without black players, there would be no National Football League, and the protests around the country are emblematic of the centuries of silence, inequality and oppression of black players, coaches, fans and staff,” Goodell insisted.
In a June 28 video, the NFL admitted that football is “gay” and “queer.”
If you love this game, you are welcome here. Football is for all. Football is for everyone.
The NFL stands by the LGBTQ+ community today and every day.
