According to the story, the NFL is going to play “Lift Every Voice” before playing the “Star-Spangled Banner” at each game’s kickoff.

“Lift Every Voice” has been called the Black national anthem.

OK, sarcasm aside — mostly — but this makes me think that if we have multiple national anthems, do we really have a national anthem?

What happens if a white player decides to take a knee during the Black national anthem?

Worse, what happens if white fans protest, sit or, worse, boo during the Black national anthem and then stand for the “Star-Spangled Banner,” or vice versa during the “Star-Spangled Banner” after that?
