I don't watch NFL and don't care - but why would you not let them sing whatever they come up with? Better than forbidding songs and burning books. Of course we may need native Indian, Italian-American and Jewish anthems as well..

I listened to Beyoncé sing that. It wasn’t offensive. It just seemed kinda dull and unremarkable.

Look, I get that black Americans have a different experience in this country, and much of that is feeling inferior based on communicated stereotypes and actual cultural/class realities. And it all pegs to their color, their racial identity. It isn’t right and if I was black I would probably have a better understanding of the issues black Americans experience. I’ve seen racism in speech, from people I know and interact with. Actually I see it most days. It’s gotten worse in the past months, as the BLM protests and riots make ordinary citizens afraid and angry.
I feel like the situation is growing worse, and that it may be by design.

The hidden cost of racism is in our lack of community, our distrust of each other, and the broken families and relationships that result.

We need to end racism, but it won’t happen with riots, unruly protests, or looting. It will happen when we recognize our brothers not as members of their race but as individuals, as people, as creations of God fully as worthy of love as anyone else.

I guess the black anthem will end racism and we'll all skip off into the sunset singing kumbaya now huh? This is just more divisiveness driven by the woke left. Get woke go broke, the NFL will learn their lesson

The whole concept of a black anthem is divisive. What if there was a white anthem? Would that be played? Oh yeah, according to the anointed woke they think the Star Spangled banner is the white anthem right? GTFO with that crap.

There will never be an end to racism especially with things like BLM, systemic oppression and other BS crap the intersectionalist cultists say are the fault of whitey. They want racial divides and I agree with you I'm beginning to feel this is all by design. The woke far left are trying to tear apart the fabric of our society as we know it. This whole anthem thing is just a small piece of the puzzle and every piece they place is a notch in the win column for them.

I was just getting back into watching football because the political BS was finally gone from the broadcasts. I guess I'll go back to not watching again. I don't need this crap shoved down my throat, I don't support the woke ideology and never will.

Blacks created their own stereotypes, so it's on them to fix those. Step 1 - stop committing the majority of crimes and people will stop viewing you differently. Step 2 - stop glorifying the thug culture. Step 3 - get Black baby daddies to actually be fathers. Step 4 - stop being whiny lil bitches and asking for special privileges...you're just pissing off everyone else more and making us resent you.

No other race touts this "I'm such a victim" BS like the Black community and it's embarrassing...it's their own damn fault and not because of something that happened to their ancestors over 200 years ago. They just don't want to accept accountability and want to blame White America (or whoever else they can) for all their problems. It's that simple so don't be part of the problem by feeding their "victim" status like a spoiled child.

Actually I think White leftoids victimize Blacks more than Blacks themselves. If we could get them stopping to do that Blacks could get finally be treated as equals again and start distancing themselves more from the thugs like most cultures do. The root of the plantation problem are cultural marxists leftists, usually White.

White or Chinese or Latino communities would never make a martyr or hero out of someone of their own who mostly lived a thug life incl. armed robbery, even if he/she died an unjust death. And I think naturally Blacks who are often more conservative and God fearing wouldn't do that either, if they would be fed lies by the White leftoids.

That is what I have observed as well. There are tons of videos out there where white libruls yell at black people for not being woke, and my own observations are that I can find common ground with 90% of blacks - they listen to reason - but 99.9% of white librul sculls are impenetrable to logic and facts.

It makes sense if you think that White leftoids are mostly anti-Christian because they like to play the role of God themselves which includes scolding people they don't agree with politically, really religiously, and telling various "minorities" they are their superior Godly overlords and protectors. It's an inferiority complex at the core.

Exactly.
As a Christian white man, I find far more common cause with a Christian black man or woman than I would with a leftist white person. I’m far more comfortable with and trusting of the person of the same faith than the person who just shares a skin tone and holds beliefs that I abhor.

BLM is brining in race separation and two sets of cultures and laws. Jim Crow must be laughing in his grave. While Karl Marx is smiling watching American stupidity usher in communism.

The goal of the Marxists is to destroy all of the institutions and culture of Western society. That includes statues, naming, language, movies, music, literature, NASCAR, NFL, etc.

All they have to do is turn one or two key decision makers in a government, company, or organization, and those people will implement new rules under the guise of political correctness, then watch the whole structure fall apart. Mission accomplished, move onto the next one.

Part of the problem is there’s almost no one calling them out on the fairy tale of systemic racism.

Was there once systemic racism in the US? Yeah, absolutely. It sucked.

It doesn’t exist anymore and the proof is how well the various immigrant groups do in the US as well as how well many blacks do. There’s no one holding the remaining black Americans back at this point except themselves.

Slavery ended 175 years ago in the US. No one that’s a grandchild of a slave is still alive today. Slavery isn’t the problem. Jim Crow ended in law 55 years ago. The kids born out of wedlock thing amoung black Americans didn’t happen until the Great Society Programs. Until then marriage rates were the same for blacks and whites. GTFO with this systemic racism bullshit.

Systemic racism is in America. If you are white you will be passed by colleges, if you are white you can be fired for any or no reason while not black. There are black only scholarship and hand out programs, while as white you’ll be kicked to the curb.

That’s real discrimination.

If they want to change anthem they should go ahead and change the N in NFL from National to Negro.

I think most good people would agree with you. The problem, imo, is that race is always a factor in shit-hits-the-fan scenarios. Maybe I'll be proven wrong.
