The NFL continues to sow more division amongst Americans.
In a politically correct decision the NFL decided to kick off Super Bowl LV by singing the Black National Anthem.
Alicia Keys performed “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing”(Black National Anthem) and the National Anthem followed.
It’s 2021 and the left still hasn’t stopped trying to segregate Americans.
Not aware we have a black national anthem. So the division continues. Chiefs, Bucs players lock arms during 'Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing' rendition before Super Bowl LV kickoffhttps://t.co/bkcN3s8gou

Breitbart News shared these details:
Super Bowl 55 kicked off Sunday with recording artist Alicia Keys singing the so-called black national anthem, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,” along with a poem.
Hitmaker Alicia Keys was tasked with a virtual performance of the 121-year-old spiritual song that has come to be known alternately as the “black national anthem” after being introduced in 1899 for Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. The poem read in 1899 was set to music in 1900.
Keys sang the song to kick off the season, as well.
Both the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs took the field during Keys’ performance on the jumbotron, but the teams returned to the locker room immediately afterward.
The league chose the “black national anthem” for both Opening Day for the 2020 season and the Super Bowl as part of a national reckoning over race in the wake of the death of George Floyd, who died in the custody of the Minneapolis police.
Earlier in the month, Congress opened up with the ” Black National Anthem” too.

Fox News added these details about the Black National Anthem being played before the game:
“Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” was played minutes before the start of Super Bowl LV between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Players from both teams stood on the goal line of their respective end zones and locked arms during Alicia Keys’ rendition of the song.
“Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing” is widely considered to be the Black national anthem. The NFL announced before the start of the season that it would play the song before the U.S. national anthem in the first week of the season as part of its attempt to spread awareness about racial injustice and police brutality.
