The NFL's administration iterated to the media this week that the 2021 regular season will continue to advance social justice like in previous years.
"NFL players can wear social justice messages on their helmets again this season, and 'It Takes All of Us’' and 'End Racism' will be stenciled in end zones for the second straight year as part of the league’s Inspire Change platform," reported the Associated Press.
"The league will also bring back the 'Say Their Stories' initiative, and for the first time, each team will highlight its social justice work during a regular-season home game in Weeks 17 and 18."
This included a renewed commitment to play "Lift Every Voice and Sing" before games, which is also colloquially known as the "Black National Anthem," as we previously reported at The Post Millennial.
The NFL's revenues in 2020 were down 25 percent from 2019, dropping an alarming $4B to $12B in total. Debate remains ongoing on whether this was caused by the pandemic, the league's push for social justice messaging, or a combination of the two factors.
