Jason Whitlock: NFL Playing 'Black National Anthem' is a Bad Idea


Jason Whitlock: “I wrote a column this week about the NFL just swallowing the entire ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement. They’re flying flags, and talking about the NBA putting names of police shooting victims on the back of jerseys, and how they’re going to play two National Anthems before Week 1. That’s crazy… If everybody is standing for ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ and then immediately everyone goes to their knee for the ‘Star Spangled Banner’ that will be the worst thing to happen to the NFL in the history of the NFL, and the worst thing we have ever seen happen to a popular sport in America. You’ll probably be able to hear the sounds of people picking up their remotes and turning off their TVs in unison all over the country… It will be one of those critical moments where football will never be the same again and will have dramatically changed the course of football.” (Full Video Above)

Listen to Jason Whitlock explain to Clay Travis why the NFL considering playing the ‘Black National Anthem’, aka Whitney Houston’s ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’, alongside the Star Spangled Banner before Week 1 games sets the stage for nuclear consequences for the future of the league.

Check out the video above as Whitlock details a nightmare scenario of every player standing for ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing’ and then minutes later kneeling for the National Anthem, and why it could be the single worst thing to ever happen to the NFL.
