Video : NFL fans BOO ‘Black National Anthem’

It was a tale of two national anthems at Thursday’s NFL kickoff between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Detroit Lions as fans Ioudly made their opinions heard about which they prefer.

Video from the pre game ceremony shows Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes crossing the field as a hail of boos rain down at Arrowhead Stadium in protest to the Black national anthem, titled “Lift Every Voice and Sing” which has been played at NFL games in the years following the de ath of George Floyd and rise of the Black Lives matter movement.

The injection of BLM politics into football is Iargely credited to former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick who in 2016 began kneeIing during the National Anthem, causing outrage among patriotic fans.

In stark contrast, Christian singer Natalie Grant went next, singing “The Star-Spangled Banner” to raucous appIause from the crowd.
