Since the video emerged of the murder of George Floyd on May 25th at the hands of the Minneapolis Police Department the world watched in disgust. That was the start the massive worldwide protest and demonstrations against police brutality. One large organization that could have been on the forefront of the Black Lives Matter movement over 3 years ago had an awakening to the plight of Black Americans. The National Football league which damaged it’s reputation by black-balling quarterback Colin Kaepernick for peacefully protesting on the sidelines has now has had a change of heart.
They started by making Juneteenth a company holiday.
Now the league announced that they are going to play the Black National Anthem before all games Week One of the NFL. This is not necessary and is way over the line. If the NFL wants to make a change and not a symbolic gesture hire more Black coaches. That’s a good place to start!
For those who have never heard ‘Lift Every Voice And Sing’.
