The following article, NFL Will Push Even MORE Woke This Year, Also Adding ‘Black National Anthem’, was first published on Flag And Cross.
The National Football League is set to slam viewers with even more woke social justice messaging this season and will also promote the so-called “black national anthem” more.
A source recently told Front Office Sports that the NFL is “bringing back a lot of [social justice] elements from last year,” including helmet decals with left-wing messages, sideline signage, and the playing of the song “Lift Ev’ry Voice and sing” — the purported “black national anthem” — before games.
The source told Front Office that the 2021 social justice effort may even be bigger than previous campaigns.
For one, there will be more slogans such as this below:

— NFL (@NFL) September 10, 2020
The theme titles for some of the campaigns this year includes, “It Takes All of Us,” “End Racism,” and “Inspire Change.”
It isn’t clear if every TV partner will broadcast the playing of the national anthem — which will be followed this season by “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” — but Front Office noted that at least NBC has agreed to air both songs.
The NFL insider added that it will impose the “black national anthem” on all special events such as the Super Bowl, the playoffs, the draft and other such special broadcasts.
The source also said that going forward all players will be free to protest against the U.S.A. in any way they choose, as long as it is a “peaceful protest.”
Front Office added that it is possible the flood of social justice protests and messages harmed the league’s TV ratings:
At the height of player protests during the 2016-17 seasons, the league’s once impregnable TV audiences plummeted 8% and 10% respectively.
As the protests receded, the NFL’s TV audiences bounced back to grow 5% apiece during the 2018-2019 seasons.
But average audiences fell 8% to 15.1 million viewers in 2020 as the league embraced social justice messaging on helmets, warm-up gear, fields and stadiums.
With the pandemic finally in the rear-view mirror, the NFL might have been poised for a comeback in the ratings. But another wave of intrusive social justice virtue signaling may put a crimp in that increase.

what thr hell is “black national anthem?:??
This IS the UNITED STATES OF AMEROICA.
WE ALREADY HAVE A NATIONAL ANTHEM. If you don’t think our National Anthem is for you then pack your friggin bags.
Segregation ended a while back, now you want it back! Make up your “mind”.
Democrats have started Segregation with a vengeance. They are so upset with Lincoln Freeing the slaves they need to reinstate the plantation slavery plan through the Bidenreich administration.
I’ve been “done with” the NFL for several years, so nothing it does matters a whit any more.
I’ve been thinking….can the sport even make it with the ticket sales left to support it?
If America needs a Black Anthem, that reeks of racism. Thank Democrats for the division of the nation.
It will never end with Blacks. They will always want something! I gave up football because of this silly bs.
There is one Stars & Stripes and one National Anthem! Period! If you want two or three or four “national anthems” get Congress to pass a law and put it to the vote of the people! Looks like this will be another year when the only ball I watch will be college. one with me!
college was an even more pathetic display of cowering ti the blm mob and virtue signaling with their blm banners. screw college sports the mlb and the nba. screw the nfl too if they are too stupid to see whats become of the others.
Stop making these hoodlums rich! Boycott them! All of this crap coming from a bunch of losers who can’t accomplish anything but play little boy games! People paying to watch them should wake up!
Segregation all over again. The libtards are always doing the opposite of what they preach.
