"Black National Anthem" Will Be Performed at Super Bowl

Recommended Posts

I am sure this decision by the NFL will be warmly received by all the open-minded folks on this forum. 🙂

NFL Announces ‘Black National Anthem’ Will Be Performed at Super Bowl

The NFL has announced that the pregame entertainment for Super Bowl LVIII will include the performance of a song known colloquially as the “Black National Anthem,” drawing mixed reactions and stirring debate on social media and beyond.

Grammy-winning R&B singer Andra Day will perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” unofficially known as the “Black National Anthem,” ahead of the Super Bowl game at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Feb. 11, the NFL said in a Jan. 18 announcement.

The song, written by NAACP leader James Weldon Johnson in 1900, served as a rallying cry for black Americans during the civil rights era.

Ms. Day took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to post her reaction to the NFL’s announcement.

“Peace & Blessings!!! Performing the Anthem at the SuperBowl yall! Grateful! Thank You God,” she wrote.

While Ms. Day’s reaction to the NFL’s announcement was understandably positive, reactions on X to the NFL’s post were mixed.

Reactions

Some reactions online to news that Ms. Day would be singing the “Black National Anthem” at the Super Bowl were positive, with some people praising the lineup.

“That’s a good lineup! Love it,” one user commented in a post on X.

Country music legend Reba McEntire will perform the national anthem at the pre-game show, while musician Post Malone will deliver a rendition of “America the Beautiful.”

There were plenty of negative reactions to the NFL’s decision to include “Lift Every Voice and Sing” at the pre-game show, however.

Some people suggested it sows division because there already is a national anthem for everyone.

“No need for a separate national anthem for the black community,” one user wrote. “Don’t need a ‘black’ national anthem and an ‘everyone else’ national anthem. Our national anthem is called that for a reason—it’s for all Americans.”

Another user said they found “Lift Every Voice and Sing” a “beautiful song” but added they would rather have no anthem at all performed at the Super Bowl “than two divided on race.”

Yeah, there is no need for a separate anthem.

You know, it's funny, 50+ years ago we fought against separate but equal.  My, my, my - you racists dont change one bit.

Don't need 2 anthems for different races.  Its 2024.  Not sure why we try to go backwards.

You don't want this song being performed, which won't hurt you in the slightest, yet you call me a racist. :lol:

Wait, what...having a song sung at the Super Bowl is the same as not being to eat at a Woolworth's lunch counter with white folks?

I don’t really care one way or another. This is one of those issues that riles people up (and both sides) but doesn’t really affect real lives in any important way.

But I do disagree with the take that stuff like this divides us further. That’s nonsense. Actual racism, when it occurs, divides us further. School shootings divide us. Abortion divides us. Migrants, and what to do about them, divide us. The widening gap between the poor and wealthy divides us. Crime divides us. 
 

Who sings what song and when doesn’t mean a hill of beans.

Great.  A song in ebonics talking about capping people?

Which was written in 1900 as a prayer of thanksgiving to God as well as a prayer for faithfulness and freedom, before there was such a thing as ebonics.

He's not the one advocating for "separate but equal" like you and Squidtard are.  :dunno:

So, yeah, you might want to look in the mirror for those "racists".  :lol:
