NFL Fans Boo ‘Black National Anthem’, Cheers For The National Anthem

In the realm of professional sports, the National Football League (NFL) often serves as a microcosm of American society, reflecting the diversity of opinions and emotions held by its fan base. In recent times, the NFL has taken steps to acknowledge social issues and promote inclusivity, including the introduction of what some have called the ‘black anthem.’

This move has sparked heated debates, with fans expressing a range of emotions, from applause to disapproval. In this article, we will explore the events surrounding the introduction of the ‘black anthem’ and the contrasting reactions it has elicited from NFL enthusiasts.

In 2020, the NFL announced its plans to address issues of racial inequality and injustice. As part of these efforts, the league decided to play “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” often referred to as the ‘black anthem,’ before the traditional playing of the U.S. national anthem at select games during the season. The song, with lyrics written by James Weldon Johnson and music by his brother John Rosamond Johnson, is often considered an anthem of the civil rights movement.

The decision to include “Lift Every Voice and Sing” in pre-game ceremonies was met with mixed reactions from fans. Supporters saw it as a meaningful gesture to acknowledge the struggle for racial equality and justice. Critics, on the other hand, viewed it as an attempt to politicize sports and argued that it was divisive.
