Apparently There’s a “Black National Anthem” and the NFL is Going to Play it Before Games This Season

It’ll be played before the Star Spangled Banner.

The National Football League is planning to play what some call the “Black National Anthem” before every Week One game during the 2020 season, a nod to dissatisfaction with the American National Anthem within the league’s player base and the broader liberal social justice movement in the United States.

The league will feature the song ‘Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,’ playing it in a manner similar to how the Star Spangled Banner is traditionally played at games. Sources indicate that the former will be played before the latter.

NFL players will also be permitted the option of memorializing individuals who are allegedly the victims of police violence, wearing a sticker on their helmets with the names of individuals such as George Floyd.

There’s clearly a considerable demand among the player base and the mainstream media to wholly replace the American national anthem with an alternative suitably focused on racial identity politics, and it’s possible that the Star Spangled Banner could be replaced on a permanent basis with the new addition to NFL games.

As the NFL tunes away from traditionally unifying cultural practices such as the American national anthem in favor of a new racial identitarian approach, the league runs the risk of alienating much of its traditional viewer and fan base, who tire of the growing all-encompassing inclusion of social justice propaganda in every facet of American entertainment and society. However, the league’s leadership appears unconcerned, moving forward with a leftist cultural transformation of the once broadly culturally appealing football league.

NBA, MLB Ratings Tank as Americans Tune Out of Social Justice Onslaught

Who cares, anymore?

Major leagues such as the National Basketball Association and Major League Baseball have struggled to attract their traditional audiences since beginning their seasons, with many speculating that an onslaught of social justice leftism presented to viewers has turned off sports fans from following.

Most NBA players have continued the ritual of kneeling for the National Anthem, raising questions as to why it’s even played before games when most in the arenas clearly don’t identify with it.

Even Major League Baseball, which leftists have been keen to castigate for insufficient allegiance to racial justice orthodoxy, bowed before the expectations of elite cultural liberals for American public life. The entire rosters of the Washington Nationals and New York Yankees kneeled before the anthem on opening day, a surprise to some, considering the playing of anthems before the game began as a tradition of baseball.

Many had assumed the viewing audiences of the major sports would swell in size, considering many Americans have little to no options for entertainment outside of a television or computer screen as the coronavirus pandemic continues. However, fans appear to be tuning out.

The Athletic sportswriter Ethan Strauss confirmed that both MLB and NBA ratings have been wholly disappointing since the sports leagues resumed play.

The ratings dip didn’t seem to apply to sporting events less associated with racial justice, with Strauss observing that a golf event featuring conservative quarterback Tom Brady was highly watched.

It seems the multimillionaire professional athletes of these ball games failed to realize that the everyday American would simply tune out of a contrived lecture in which some of the most privileged people on the face of the Earth lecture them on their supposed “privilege.”
