Lift Evry Voice and Sing will be performed live or played before The Star-Spangled Banner prior to each NFL game during Week 1 and the league is considering putting names of victims of police brutality on helmet decals or jersey patches, a person familiar with the discussions told The Associated Press.

Insanity upon insanity
Nigel Farage’s old radio station before his contract was dropped over BLM/Antifa/Taliban talk:
Tweet: Iain Dale, Presenter LBC Radio
I see BLMUK have removed the ‘defund the Police’ part of their policy platform on their GoFundMe page. The ‘Abolish capitalism’ bit still remains.
Everyone can support the slogan ‘Black Lives Matter’, but I do not and will never support an organisation which is proto-Marxist.

They haven’t removed it, still in the original information, just click ‘read more’...
“Developing and delivering training, police monitoring and strategies for the abolition of police.”
This could have avoided getting so messy if you had listened to Nigel Farage, LBC just sacked him for telling the truth!
GoFundMe: UKBLM FUND
Black Lives Matter UK (BLMUK) is a coalition of black activists and organisers across the UK. Weve been organising since 2016 for justice in our communities.
Were guided by a commitment to dismantle imperialism, capitalism, white-supremacy, patriarchy and the state structures that disproportionately harm black people in Britain and around the world. We build deep relationships across the diaspora and strategise to challenge the rise of the authoritarian right-wing across the world, from Brazil to Britain...
Our commitment to all black lives means that we lift up the experiences of the most marginalised in our communities, including but not limited to working class queer, trans, undocumented, disabled, Muslim, sex workers, women/non-binary, HIV+ people...
How well spend the funds!
Developing and delivering training, police monitoring and strategies for the abolition of police...
behind paywall, but article reports on what is on UK BLM GoFundMe website:
2 Jul: UK Telegraph: Of course black lives matter, but the unelected BLM Marxists should not matter
More and more people, after rushing to show they’re not racist by “taking the knee”, will think twice on realising BLM’s hardcore radicalism

Still remember Peyton Manning's return game against the Steeler where he took them apart.
Interview after with Troy: "Hey, what can I say? He's Peyton Manning"
So do they first stand for their black skin color anthem and then kneel for the everyone else’s skin color anthem? Is there an anthem for non binary folks? This is so confusing.
I cant decide if Ill sit or take a knee.
Call me when the white anthem starts.....
They won’t. Search “iowa fans support protest.” The U of Iowa players said support protests or don’t come to the games.
Q: Is a white NFL fan a racist if he takes a knee during the “Black national anthem” or is he a racist if he doesn’t?
Anyone can look up to him as a role model without irony.
I can think of a few ways to protest the singing/playing of an anthem other than the Star Spangled Banner.
1. Do you think some might just start singing out very loudly the Star Spangled Banner when the other anthem starts, thereby drowning out the other anthem?
2. Do you think some might start chanting U.S.A. very loudly while the other anthem is played, thereby drowning out the other anthem?
3. Do you think some might stand with your back to the field in defiance of the other anthem?
4. Do you think some might hold up your hand and ‘speak’ the numbers 17 and 76 (for 1776) in American Sign Language. See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjvzIgFNY9Q @ 0:41 for “17” and then @ 3:03 for “76”?
5. Do you think some might raise a hand with a singular finger extended, corresponding to the longest finger on your hand to celebrate the greatest digit?
Baby Got Back?
Yet when BLM activist murdered 5 Dallas police officers the NFL would not allow the Cowboys to put something on their uniforms to honor those officers.
I am done with the NFL
Hymn Soviet Soyuz.
The first game of the season will have huge numbers of empty seats, greatly embarrassing the NFL.
But after that, the home team owners will send sound trucks through the nearby inner city neighborhoods, giving out as many free tickets as they need in order to fill the empty seats, so they can claim, "See? See! We're popular once again!"
Of course, this will create other new problems they'll have to contend with. Even though the camera operators will be forbidden to show violence in the stands between rival gangs, it'll be pretty tough for the announcers to ignore the sounds of gunshots, which will reverberate around and around the stadium.
I suppose the NFL will blame the empty stadiums on Covid-19.
I wonder what will happen when people stop watching on TV. The whole college football “industry” is a feeder or farm team system for the NFL I suspect college football will be next.
Aaaaaaaaaaaa Freak out! Le freak, is chic... Freak out.
Oh, that aint it?
So when are they gonna play the white anthem?
Probably drop their pants down below their asses.
The NFL is suicidal.
And how many white, useful idiots will still give their money to the nfl that hates them?
