The NFL is causing more attention to its pregame festivities. The Black national anthem is reportedly set to return before NFL games for good starting in 2021. “Lift Every Voice and Sing” was played before the start of Week 1 games during the 2020 NFL season, and Front Office Sports reported Wednesday the NFL plans to make it a “prominent part of big league events.”

Following the news of the NFL’s Anthem announcement, conservative pundit Tomi Lahren decided to weigh in.
Check out her take below:
So the NFL will include the Black national anthem and “social justice messages” in the 2021 season. That should do wonnnnders for ratings. 👍🏼

Another tactic to divide this country to keep the race card playing. I feel for the people feeding into this believing this. Haven’t watched the #NFL in a few years when they started letting this happen. Their ratings are down and continue to plummet! When will they get a clue?

Yeah so if you watch a game just change the channel until all the BS has passed. Then let’s see some football. Christ, the game definitely has changed!

It blows my mind that conservatives are still bitching about the NFL but at the same time can't wait until the season starts…🤷♂️
— TheOtherOne (@Interloper_X) July 15, 2021
Yes – ratings will be amazing! Mainly because we, as NFL fans, support social justice causes and our fellow Americans. Respect matters – don't you agree, Tomi? Or is that not allowed by the cult leader?🤔

NFL Revenue the last 5 years:
16: $13.1B(Kap kneeled)
Looks like the NFL is doing just fine.
You will be watching too so what you complaining for?

Haven’t watched a minute of the NBA, MLB and I guess I’ll be adding the NFL to that list. Until sport can keep it about sport, I’m out!!

What are you/others so afraid of? Serious question. How does this impact your/anyone else's enjoyment of the game on a fundamental level? Some of the league's white players are Democrats and/or non-Christians—are you stumping to have them silenced too? Much ado about nothing.

Let's compare the NFLs rating to your… what are you doing now? A podcast or something?
— MinnesoTED (@MinnesoTED) July 16, 2021
Glad I stopped watching last year! Looks like I won’t be watching this year either. The NFL game has gotten boring anyway!

@ first I didn’t get why they would play the black national anthem but it took me 5-10 min to find and read an article about the history of the BNA. I think it’s beautiful the NFL is doing this. Relevant/thoughtful/good decision in all.
— MiNATO #iCANTBREATHE (@Kado_TM) July 15, 2021
The NFL is a business, their goal is to generate revenue, they’d only do this to generate more revenue vs *not* doing it. Thats capitalism. You think the NFL shouldnt be capitalist? Their primary goal shouldn’t be to generate revenue? Wow! Very radical of you Tomi, I’m impressed!

Dropped all sport channels at both homes.

So you are basically admitting that white people won’t watch because a “black” song will be sung? LOL y’all can’t help but to be racist and it’s just comical at this point.

Tomi was not a big fan of NFL players protesting the National Anthem. Clearly she’s not a fan of the New Anthem.
Tomi knows exactly how to stir the pot. We’ll see if ratings really suffer as a result.
