    ...what is going to happen if some white (or other) players "take a knee" when they play this 'black national anthem?'

    Good question. I imagine that the NFL will say that that would be a hate crime.

    I looked up the "Black National Anthem" and learned that it's a spiritual hymn. Here's the third verse:

    I wonder if something like this is God's cunning way of getting His name back into the conversation in the midst of all this.

    As a sports fan my entire life it’s more reason not to watch the NFL...

    They are going to say that's a hate crime against blacks, when black players have contended for years that taking a knee is not disrespectful? And if it suddenly is, then taking a knee during the customary national anthem is not a hate crime against ALL Americans? That's about as logical as Alice in Wonderland.

    Roger Goodell needs to resign and give the job to a black person. The offer to play this so-called "Black National Anthem" is just a subterfuge to keep the black players satiated. A real offer is needed and Mr. Goodell needs to resign immediately. The NFL white power structure needs to be dismantled and anything less is just window dressing.

    I saw an NFL game 35 years ago. It was a lot of fun. I could not afford to go now.
