Millions of patriotic Americans have flooded social media vowing to boycott the NFL over the league’s plans to play “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” known as the “Black National Anthem,” before the Star Spangled Banner.

Accusing the NFL of bowing to social justice warriors and playing identity politics, social media users slammed the NFL for politicizing the game. “We are the UNITED States, not DIVIDED Races. We have ONE National Anthem and it’s the Star Spangled Banner,” said Pamela on Twitter.

The NFL plans to play the so-called “Black National Anthem” before all Week 1 games this season. This will begin with the nationally televised first game of the season, which is on September 10, when the defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, host the Houston Texans. 

The song also will be played before the Star Spangled Banner during the full slate of Week 1 Sunday afternoon games, during Sunday Night Football and during the two ESPN Monday night games.

The decision to play the so-called “Black National Anthem” as the first anthem was not received well by patriotic Americans, and soon fans began a hashtag ‘Boycott NFL’ on Twitter.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz was among those who criticized the league’s plan to play two “national anthems.”

Other patriots followed suit, and by Friday morning, the hashtag #BoycottNFL was trending on Twitter:

  1. The world has been multi cultural for centuries now and racism really is a myth. Discrimination is about income .Its a class war Rhe black people who think they’re victimised by police for their colour forget that the other people in prisons are the same class

  2. It’s a stupid stunt, I hope they don’t do it. Then again the NFL has played the PR game for the Military and much more for decades.

    • Yeah, but the military presence in nearly all the pre-game ceremonies is a huge turn-off. Why can’t entertainment be just that, and not some sort of hive-mind guilt trip?

  3. There was a very simple solution to this when it first started and that was to do what they did years back, the players did not enter the field until after the anthem was played. Now why would they not simply revert to that and end this? Because they do not want it to end, they, the owners, management and the commissioner and many of the players are part of the problem, they work for the agenda, divide and conquer, they are minions of Satan. Now why would anyone knowing this wish to participate in either going to a game, buying any jerseys, and or watching it on T.V, especially if your paying extra to watch? I stopped watching all sports 16 years ago and have not regretted it or missed it at all.

  4. There are many more silent protesters to add to the very vocal ones. We’ll speak with our wallets by refusing to buy NFL products or go to games. I’ll take my kid steelhead fishing to occupy our time during the NFL/NBA seasons.
