The song would be performed before “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the source said. The NFL’s season opener is scheduled for Sept. 10, with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Houston Texans. Having recently displayed increased awareness about the problems of systemic racism, 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. The NFL also may produce educational programs about victims, among other plans.

“Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” traditionally known as the Black national anthem, is expected to be performed live or played before every Week 1 NFL game, and the league is considering a variety of other measures during the upcoming season to recognize victims of police brutality, a source familiar with the league’s discussions told The Undefeated on Thursday.
How do you decrease racism? You look at people as people, and treat them based on the content of their actions and character. How do you increase racism? You issue an around-the-clock battle cry about ‘two Americas’, and you separate people based on race. Just like what the NFL will start doing in Week 1 of the 2020 football season with the playing of the ‘black national anthem’ preceding the playing of our actual National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner. This moronic move is a guarantee of further racial tensions and violence.
“There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag… We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language… and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.” Teddy Roosevelt, 26th president of the United States of America
I will not be watching one, single game where this predictive programming, social justice indoctrination is forced upon people who just want to watch their favorite sport. Of course, the whole idea of this nonsense is to inflame racial tensions to the point where society can no longer function, and will of its own weight fall to the ground. If there are two National Anthems, then there are two Americas, and if there are two Americas, there can only be division.
I pledge to not watch a single game in a single sport that foments that division, like the NFL and NBA are now doing, and I hope you will join me. I have nothing against ‘Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing’, it’s a beautiful song, but it is no one’s ‘national anthem’. As a nation, we have one National Anthem, for all Americans.
COLIN KAEPERNICK WORE ‘PIG SOCKS’ WHEN HE PLAYED IN THE NFL, AND DONATED THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO PEOPLE WHO KILLED COPS. THIS IS YOUR HERO?

Having recently displayed increased awareness about the problems of systemic racism, 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. The NFL also may produce educational programs about victims, among other plans.
Early last month, commissioner Roger Goodell in a video admitted that the league had erred in how it handled peaceful NFL player protests of police brutality and systemic oppression. Goodell condemned racism and affirmed that Black lives matter, pledging his allegiance to the players in the battle for equal justice under the law.

The league hopes its efforts demonstrate “a genuine commitment to the public, players and coaches and that player voices continue to be heard,” the source wrote in a text message. “This is key to educating fans, and becoming a prominent voice in the fight to end racism.”
