This year, the Black National Anthem will play before the Star Spangled Banner, the US’s official National Anthem, and this has angered people. A teacher in Cobb County, Georgia, Jennifer Paige, is calling for a boycott of watching NFL games, to disrupt their profits in order to make them stop playing the Black National Anthem, saying “regardless of race.”
