So the NFL is going to play the black national anthem before the week#1 games.

NFL plans to play Black national anthem before Week 1 games - CNN

Are we expected to stand?

As a 34 year season ticket holder, I won’t be standing or kneeling.

I will just be sitting quietly waiting for it to end.

Do they really expect me to stand for the black national anthem when we know the majority of the players will be kneeling for our National Anthem?

Do you think you'll be at games week 1? I thought they were not having any crowds.

They can play some Miley Cyrus for all I care. I am there for football and not for paid patriotism.

No refuge could save the hireling & slave/
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave:/
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave/
O’er the land of the free & the home of the brave.

Yes, it's a giant mystery why blacks don't want to stand for a song with those lyrics, but instead for a song called "Lift Every Voice and Sing."

I think I'll take a knee.

Interesting how segregation is making this epic comeback... I can hardly contain myself to see what will be segregated next!

Bathrooms? Drinking fountains? Seat on the bus? Omg, the suspense is literally killing me!

I don’t know how any white person with an ounce of self respect could continue to watch the NFL.

Anyway I’m sure the white players will have to stand or they will be fired or murdered by the mob. Which will then not be prosecuted. I’m not kidding about that either.

Your right !

It is a sad day when a white player feel pressure to kneel for our national anthem & then salutes the black national anthem.

It would be nice IMO if it was played in addition to or at halftime to honor.
Kind of like how baseball sings in the 7th inning .....
I think in place of may be a bit over the top .........

LYRICS

Lift Every Voice and Sing
By James Weldon Johnson


Lift every voice and sing
Till earth and heaven ring,
Ring with the harmonies of Liberty;
Let our rejoicing rise
High as the listening skies,
Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.
Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,
Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us,
Facing the rising sun of our new day begun
Let us march on till victory is won.

Stony the road we trod,
Bitter the chastening rod,
Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;
Yet with a steady beat,
Have not our weary feet
Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?
We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,
We have come, treading our path through the blood of the slaughtered,
Out from the gloomy past,
Till now we stand at last
Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.

God of our weary years,
God of our silent tears,
Thou who has brought us thus far on the way;
Thou who has by Thy might Led us into the light,
Keep us forever in the path, we pray.
Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,
Lest, our hearts drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee;
Shadowed beneath Thy hand,
May we forever stand.
True to our God,
True to our native land.

The internet (and those who manipulate/abuse it) has brought out the absolute worst in people and this thread proves it.

The cruelty is the point. The irreverence is the point. The disrespect and derision is the point.

The loud and proud ignorance, without any meaningful, critical introspection and analysis of the underlying values of this country, is the outcome.

And here we are.

I’m sure all the people in this thread that went on tirade after tirade screaming about their disgust at disrespecting the American flag will stand proudly as the flag waves during this.

Oh wait they are snowflakes who can’t handle one song that isn’t the song they want.

Somebody has got to tell the truth and end this BS now before we lose our great country if we already haven't. Stop sucking up to these Marxist liars that infest our media and universities and hit back with an information blitz of Justice Dept. facts and figures and charts showing the absolute, over the top, long running black crime wave that has victimized our nation with murder to every other violent crime and stop excusing it or pretending it doesn't exist or blame white people or cops. This whole race narrative many are buying into of black victimhood is a gigantic lie. Listen to the conservative black pastors and leaders and sane black people who say there is no built in race problem, blacks have every advantage and privilege offered to them but too many have embraced the easier victim role where the leftists have placed them in order to do nothing in life but take from others, blame others and commit lawless behavior. Fatherless families spawn criminals and gangs and wasted lives. White people are mostly a generous people and are not evil racists as blacks are taught from a young age. This is divide and conquer and it is working and we will be left with a third world hellhole ruled by gangs and warlords.They finally closed down the crime infested Chaz/Chop debacle in Seattle which is a microcosm of what America will be. But exposing the lies will not stop the slide into communism. The answer is a return to true Christianity and morals for all people.These growing evils are a warning of judgement on our country if most of us do not hold God in high esteem and repent. I'm done with the NFL as it has joined the enemies of good and I doubt we will have any freedom or even a country left anyway by the time football season comes around. Evil has been called good.There is not much time left.
Isaiah 5:20 King James Bible
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
