(ThePatriotSource.com)- Did you know black people have a separate national anthem? No, I haven’t heard that before either. But apparently, the National Football League has heard of it and is planning on playing it before the season’s opening games.
ESPN reports that the NFL will play “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” before the opening game this year, which is a song already considered the “black national anthem.”
You can hear it in the video below.
Roger Goodell, the commissioner of the NFL, said at the beginning of June that he thinks the NFL had “erred in how it handled peaceful NFL player protests of police brutality and systemic oppression.”
ESPN reports that Goodell confirmed he supported the Black Lives Matter movement and condemned racism, and then pledged his support of players who want to kneel for the national anthem and engage in other activism that is portrayed as campaigning for equal justice under the law. Despite the fact, you know, equality already exists.
In June, the NFL went even further by pledging to give $250 million in charitable donations over the next ten years to various ultra-left-wing causes, all of which claim to support racial justice.
The NFL is also understood to be looking at more things they can do to promote “social justice,” including playing this so-called black national anthem before games begin.
A source told CNN that the song will be played even before the American national anthem. It will first be played on September 10 before the game where Kansas City Chiefs take on the Houston Texans.
“The song also will be played during the full slate of those Week 1 Sunday afternoon games, during Sunday Night Football and during the two ESPN Monday night games,” CNN claims.
The source also reportedly told CNN that the league is working with players to “recognize victims of systemic racism throughout the season” and that “among the items being discussed with players are adding names of victims on helmet decals or jersey patches, as well as educational programs and storytelling.”
If you were expecting to just be able to enjoy a season of football, then I’m sorry to break it to you that you can’t. It’s all activism now.
