'We are ONE America': Ted Cruz blasts NFL's reported plans to play 'Black national anthem'

League will reportedly play 'Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing' before Week 1 games

By Valerie Richardson - The Washington Times - Friday, July 3, 2020

Calls to boycott the NFL trended Friday on social media following reports that the league plans to play the song known as the Black national anthem before all Week 1 regular season games.

Multiple media outlets, including The Associated Press and the Undefeated, cited sources saying that “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,” known as the Black national anthem, would be played or performed before the first week’s games, immediately before “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

The hashtag #BoycottNFL trended on Friday morning as some Republican lawmakers and others condemned the idea, saying it promoted the concept of a nation divided by race.  :snip:
