Report: NFL to play black national anthem before season openers
quote:

The NFL will play “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” commonly known as the black national anthem, before every season opener, Jason Reid of ESPN reports.

Some players, as well as Texans coach Bill O’Brien, already have committed to kneeling for the national anthem.

The NFL is considering other measures to recognize victims of police brutality during the upcoming season, per Reid. The proposals include listing the names of victims on uniforms through helmet decals or jersey patches, an idea that would come in collaboration with the NFL Players Association.

The league hopes it demonstrates “a genuine commitment to the public, players and coaches and that player voices continue to be heard,” according to Reid’s source.

I know they have stadium security, but actual PD's should boycott the NFL in response. See how they like depending on some schlub rent-a-cop making minimum wage

Black national anthem?

I was unaware there was a country called "Black" within the United States.

Interesting.

I've never been one of the "I'm done with them" crowd after the Kaepernick kneeling thing, and even after all the shite with BLM last month. If this happens I'm done with that shite. Again, I watch sports to avoid all this political bullshitee. If the players want to protest they can do it on their own time.

What if the white players want to protest something they feel is unjust by kneeling? “Not enough white cornerbacks in the league...... let’s kneel to draw attention to this.” Seriously though, they’d be offended by that..... but don’t understand how people can be offended by them doing the same.
