It’s as if those on the Left who call everything racist and support NFL players kneeling or sitting for the national anthem want segregation to come back to the U.S. Within the last few generations, people fought and died to be seen as equal, regardless of race. Now, not only is it not good enough to be equal, but some are clamoring for things that would only further separate the people.
New York Daily News writer Leonard Greene wrote an opinion article on Sunday suggesting that — in light of the NFL’s new anthem policy — the league should put the “Star-Spangled Banner” on the sidelines for one week every season in order to play “The Negro National Anthem,” officially known as “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing.”
Lefties are whining because the new NFL policy states that players must stand for the anthem. If anyone wants to protest the anthem, they must stay off the field.
The question is, despite black people comprising nearly 70 percent of all NFL players, how does playing the other anthem for one week affect those that aren’t black? Even though they make up smaller percentages of the NFL’s player base, wouldn’t playing “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” alienate non-black players? I thought all of this was about equality?
I honestly just wanted the NFL to get back to focusing on football — which it appears they are attempting to do. But, those on the Left who are determined to ruin everything Americans have loved over the years won’t let it go, as evidenced by Greene’s article.
I’m not saying that “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” is a bad tune. What I am saying is that even though there are percentage disparities in some sports, it doesn’t mean that the other races don’t exist.
In today’s society, people cherry-pick history to fit their narratives. It’s no longer about the whole story, as long as part of a story feeds your agenda.
