In case you were wondering what the NFL was doing to advance the cause of social justice and equality, the league and the league’s players association are going on television to tell you all about it.
According to an NFL press release via MSN:
We will devote the entirety of our one-hour program on NBC next Wednesday, Sept. 9, to providing a platform for our players and allies to discuss the work that we are doing together to advance social justice and equality.
Additional details on this program to be announced at a later date. Breitbart
NFL end zones will be inscribed this season with two slogans: “It Takes All Of Us” on one end line, “End Racism” on the other.
As part of its social justice awareness initiatives, the NFL also will allow similar visuals on helmets and caps.
Previously announced were decals on the back of helmets, or patches on team caps, displaying names or phrases to honor victims of racism and/or police brutality.
Now, a T-shirt designed by NFL Players Association executive committee member Michael Thomas, a safety with the Houston Texans, can be worn in warmups.
That T-shirt says: “Injustice against one of us is injustice against all of us,” in the front. The back says reads: “End racism.” Fox News
The NFL has made it clear that they no longer represent America and American values, they have caved to the demands of the few and fallen for the racism distraction in our nation.
We know people will still watch NFL games and justify it to themselves, but we can only hope that more people start to see the corruption and blatant hate and division that the NFL stands for these days. I for one have not watched sports for 4ish years and I will continue to do so.
