Former NFL Player Blasts League Over ‘Black National Anthem’ Playing Before NFL Games


Former NFL star Burgess Owens blasted the football league over reports that the NFL will play “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” dubbed the “Black national anthem,” before all Week 1 games this season.

The retired safety suggested the move was in line with “trying” to “segregate” the nation “again.” “There is no ‘black national anthem,” Burgess Owens tweeted. “Why does it feel like the country is trying to segregate again sometimes?”

By doing this the NFL will once again divide our country and will choose symbolism over substance. We have issues to overcome but doing this will create more division and set us back over 50 years as a nation. I won’t watch week one if they do this. And I hope millions of other fans won’t either. Let’s find ways to unite our country not tear it apart.
