Use the mute button or don't watch if it bothers you that much.  I have an attention span longer than a goldfish, I don't need to hear the national anthem to be reminded what country I'm in.

conservatives are away so worried about things be shoved down their throats.

Fark it, white lady... pro sports is ONE area where black Americans have a high profile. Why should they stifle their voices to ensure old white people aren't jimmie rustled?

Racists hate being reminded they are racists.

Lift Every Voice and Sing, which is often referred to as the Black National Anthem.

I thought it was "Whoomp! There It Is!"

I know it is my personal anthem.

The objection I have to "Lift Evry Voice" is that it's a hymn, and I don't really want more religion in public spaces.

It's honestly a better song than the national anthem we do have, and I wish it were more widely known, but I don't support that level of forced religiosity.

Keep yer danged politics out of my sports.

Sports is about two things:

Big meaty men slapping meat

Over the top displays of nationalistic patriotism celebrating the armed forces.

Sports mix with politics all the time. Especially the NFL and its broadcasters. Aside from the standard fetishization of the military and jingoistic truck ads every 3 minutes, we've seen both Dennis Miller and Rush Limbaugh in the booth.
God forbid they throw a bone to the majority of their players.

She's definitely trash.

I can't help but agree with her a little on the following:

"...we're one country," Kelly said. "We don't need separate anthems."

So I vote we just don't do either anthem. I'm sick of that propaganda anyway.

/How many native Americans have to stand, take off their hat, put their hand over their heart, and sing the national anthem?

~70% of the NFL players are African-American. If the "average" American can tolerate watching a minority dominated sport, then the "average" American can deal with an anthem that celebrates, or shows respect to, a majority of the participants.
 
2021-09-09 3:32:25 PM  
Making white people uncomfortable while watching sportsball is not allowed in this country. White TV lady says so.

If you are a white person that is uncomfortable with pro black messaging, while watching a sport that is dominated by black athletes, you may need to ask yourself why that is.
 
2021-09-09 3:32:53 PM  
"I don't think that the average American - Black or White - wants to hear the Black national anthem before they hear the national anthem..."

I don't actually care. I don't particularly want to hear the national anthem either, but I'll say neither hurts me or degrades me in any way, or hurts who I am. If it bothers you, you should be thinking about why rather than how.

If this blonde idiot had had a job in 1947, she'd be decrying the Brooklyn Dodgers signing Jackie Robinson as "woke" and that average Americans don't want to see someone like them out there.

Megyn Kelly Rips NFL for Shoving 'Race Based' Messaging on Fans: 'Average Americans' Don't Want the 'Black National Anthem'

Why not? It's a good song. Conservatives should be thrilled a song with powerful religious overtones is being played on national television. I thought that's what they wanted? If nobody told them it was unofficially known as the "Black National Anthem" they would love this.

"I don't think people want politics in their sports,"

Then why do they sing the national anthem before games?
 
2021-09-09 3:36:44 PM  
I don't care to hear either of them before a sportsball game, but if I gotta Lift Every Voice and Sing certainly is a better jam.

Playing both for most folks at the stadium just means more time to wait in line for nachos

I mean she should consider it divisive, if they end racism and stop hate she'll no longer have an audience.

Lift Every Voice and Sing, which is often referred to as the Black National Anthem.

Yes, that's the official black national anthem. But any black person who's ever been to a cookout (which is to say all of us besides Candace Owens, Larry Elder, and Alan West) knows this is the real black national anthem:

It started as a poem by James Weldon Johnson.  It only became a hymn (in some hymnals) later on.  God isn't even mentioned until the 5th stanza.

In other words ...  Lighten up Francis.

The social commentary and social change push through sports is unfortunately happening because it couldn't gain any real traction through regular means.  And it still gained traction, eventually, despite Kaepernick's poorly planned and worsely executed knee-taking.  Fortunately, more organized and articulate people finally figured what he was sort of trying to accomplish.

Considering the state of the nation today, I believe a decent replacement for the national anthem may well be Stuck in the Middle With You.

Well, yes. Megyn Kelly's idea of getting along is "fall In line, do what you're told". She's a fascist, she supports fascists, and her response to being attacked by fascists was to carry more water for fascists.

Firstly:  No national anthems.  Fark the national anthem!

Secondly:  How does playing the "Black national anthem" help anything at a sportsball event?  It's basically as low effort as it gets.  When the teams start giving millions of dollars to civil rights and other organizations that can actually make a change and use their outsized weight to push for political change directly, then I'll give them credit.  Playing a song?  Fark off!

Ah!  There's the Megyn Kelly i know and love!

For a moment there, the narrative was that she changed somehow (because she was actually trying to HELP Trump deal with the obvious challenges appealing to women that he had.)  But deep down, we all knew that sorta standing up to Trump, and going to MSNBC, and pretending like white knighting the white race wasn't her goal, were all just passing fads.  I'm glad to see her return to type.  It has been far too long since someone has told me that Santa Claus was really Santa Claucasian.  And I was REALLY worried that my first grader might grow up not hearing that while he's yellow on the outside, Spongebob is really all white internally.

Really, tho, any mindlessness to numb out reality...religion, sports, politics...

Drugs and alcohol for some people.

I prefer to combine mine. Shrooms and politics is my favorite, but in a pinch alcohol and arguing politics while football (american) is on will do.

Football (soccer) is great with alcohol, lots of bawdy, disrespectful songs regarding possible lineage of miserable players.

God is often invoked late in most games. Generally, he is less likely to provide requested plagues and socially transmitted diseases on demand regardless of the team.
The explanations offered for the need of these diseases are suspect at best, but any corner kick not resulting in the evisceration of the goalie is almost certainly the fault of one of the forwards parents having a job washing camels, and therefore the incompetence of the player.  It does seem unrelated the farther from alcohol one becomes.

So, I guess religion is acceptable in certain circumstances, but god doesn't seem to be as willing to join in as most people would suggest.
