CINCINNATI (WKRC) - According to FrontOfficeSports.com, the NFL is planning to play the song "Lift Every Voice and Sing", which is referred to as the Black National Anthem, in addition to "The Star-Spangled Banner", before what are being termed "tentpole" events in the 2021 season.
It's unclear what constitutes a "tentpole" event, but that will likely include the NFL Playoffs, the Super Bowl, and the NFL Draft.
The NFL has not commented officially on this.
I'd hope they would limit that song to a few events.

If they have a different National Anthem, they are a citizens of different nation. Time to deport.
I am not one of those weak-spirited, sappy Americans who want to be liked by all the people around them. I dont care if people hate my guts; I assume most of them do. The important question is whether they are in a position to do anything about it. My affections, being concentrated over a few people, are not spread all over Hell in a vile attempt to placate sulky, worthless shits. - William S Burroughs
