It is not uncommon for the NFL to have controversial boycotts surrounding it. It has been boycotted by fans who are tired of players protesting during the national anthem, and now it's being boycotted because its most popular team owner refuses to do just that.
Some people are boycotting the NFL because they think it is disrespectful toward America, some are boycotting due to injuries sustained by head trauma, some are boycotting due to its subpar officiating, some are boycotting due simply to boredom with professional sports.
With all the controversy surrounding the NFL recently (however overblown or utterly new) we even have supporters of segregation getting involved and this is personally the thing that pushed me over the edge.
For the past few seasons, it has been a tradition for NFL players to kneel together during the national anthem in protest.
Even if you're not interested in football it's hard to ignore this when it's plastered everywhere in the media.
But it's worse now. Prior to games, the NFL has caved to segregation and are performing a "Black National Anthem" before games.
Bill Maher took aim at this ridiculousness and called it out for what it is...segregation.
"I think we should have one national anthem. I think when you go down a road where you’re having two different national anthems, colleges sometimes now have, many of them have different graduation ceremonies for black and white, separate dorms. This is what I mean: segregation. You've inverted the idea. We're going back to that under a different name.

Why does the left not see this? Why do black people not see this? I know there are some that do, but collectively and as a whole, they are blinded to this for some reason whether it be their absolute hatred for President Trump or something else. But whatever it is, it's POISON!
