The NFL will play “Lift Ev’ry Voice and sing” AKA the “Black National Anthem before every week 1 game.
As apart of The NFL’s attempt to salvage it’s reputation with black people, “Life Ev’ry voice and sing” or the Black National anthem will play at games. Don’t worry all you “patriotism” phony fans, the stunt will only last one week.
Ok, I can not be the only one who is completely disgusted by this poor attempt by the NFL to support “social justice”. The same league that has yet to re-employ Colin Kaepernick after blackballing him for a peaceful protest. Not, the NFL that just had a former MVP sign for a league minimum, who just happens to be Black QB Cam Newton.
In addition to playing the Black national anthem ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ before each Week 1 game, NFL is also planning on jersey or helmet logos with the names of the victims of systematic racism https://t.co/8AnKb6IxR9 via @usatoday

According to the USA Today the league will not only play a song for Black People, they gonna let their players decorate their helmets too. In a league that is over 50% African American, it’s a slap in the face to play the song for 1 week let alone at all.
The @NFL is about 70% black. They might as well make "Lift Every Voice" they only anthem they play before games moving forward 🤷🏾♂️

Somebody tell me Ashton Kutcher is behind a screen waiting to jump out and tell every Black Person we are being Punk’d. White America’s blatant refusal to first acknowledge, now pay for what it has done to black people is downright disgusting. Even more, the fact it’s the NFL that is perpetuating this atrocity they are calling Fighint racial inequality is worse.
The NFL had the opportunity to be at the forefront of the fight for racial justice and equality.
However, they punished players who used their platform to help the people that look like them. Roger Goodell kissed up to Donald Trump as he called the mothers of these players “B**CHES”
No thank you NFL, America, the world, you can keep all these superficial gestures meant to show support. Money talks, and its time to pay up.
What do you guys think of The NFL playing the Black national anthem “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” before games?
