Hey NFL, Why Not Start Games with the Jewish National Anthem?
Did you hear the NFL is planning to play the "Black national anthem" before each football game? This is the most bizarre, insulting, idiotic, ignorant, offensive and most importantly -- racist -- decision in the history of sports.
First of all, I didn't even know there was a "Black national anthem." Did you? Silly me, I actually thought we were all Americans. I thought the one and only American national anthem was called "The Star Spangled Banner." I thought that one national anthem brought together Americans of all colors, races, sexes, religions and cultures.
I was clearly wrong.
A national anthem for only one race of people sure sounds insulting, offensive and racist to me. I'm glad it's not my race promoting such a divisive and intolerant idea.
But, as long as the NFL is playing this insulting game ...
I'm Jewish and I feel left out. I'm insulted. It's downright intolerant to leave my people out. Where is the diversity and inclusion in the NFL?
Is the NFL creating a caste system? Is the NFL saying black people are superior to Jews? More important than Jews? More important than any other race or culture?
I can't be the only one feeling left out. Why isn't the NFL playing a white national anthem? Or a Hispanic national anthem? What about Christians, Muslims and Hindus? How about my friends who are Italian American, Irish American, Polish American and Asian American? Don't they all deserve recognition before NFL games?
A recent NFL TV ad campaign reported: "The NFL is gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender." So, where are their national anthems before games?
Have I left anyone out?
