49ers To Fly "Black Lives Matter" Flag Over Levi's Stadium

49ers To Fly “Black Lives Matter” Flag Over Levi’s Stadium

The San Francisco 49ers will fly the Black Lives Matter flag over Levi's stadium.


It may only be a matter of time before the Black Lives Matter flag completely replaces Old Glory at the rate things are going.

The San Francisco 49ers have decided to fly the BLM banner above Levi’s stadium in their ongoing quest to be labeled as the most “woke” team in the NFL.

The San Francisco 49ers will fly a “Black Lives Matter” flag at Levi’s Stadium as the franchise continues its support of the fight against racial inequality.


The 49ers will fly the flag next to the California state flag and the United States flag. On Monday, CEO Jed York discussed the “Black Lives Matter” movement, according to the Bay Area News Group.


“First and foremost, you're saddened and outraged when you see events take place, especially when they're specifically violent events that are targeted at African-Americans. We're focused on taking actions,” York said.

"We have to make sure we do everything we can that they have a voice, whether that's making sure they can get out to vote (and that's the best way to make your voice heard in this country), or if we can work with groups like the Players Coalition and others that can help change laws and tactics, that we might not be experts in.

"We want to work with people that are experts, so that we can make real, serious change in this country,” he added.

While advocates of the Black Lives Matter movement cheer this move by the 49ers, they're actually ignoring what the flag represents.

Just ask leaders in the BLM movement.

Holding the BLM flag to the same reverence as the American flag is as ludicrous as holding the Pride flag or the Rebel flag to the same reverence.

History will back that up.

In 1965, civil rights activists, led by Dr. Martin Luther King marched to the Capitol while carrying a large American flag the entire way.

They didn't make up their own flag, which could have caused even further divide in the country.

They recognized that the Stars & Stripes belonged to all Americans, no matter what color they were.

Now you might ask: Can't both flags be flown together as a symbol of unity and freedom?

Again, let's ask the members of Black Lives Matter directly...
