Left-wing activists have taken full control of the NFL. The league has now decided to play the song “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing,” known by many as the "Black National Anthem," before Week 1 football games in the upcoming season. The NFL has also pledged $250 million in support for so-called "social justice" causes over the next decade. 

Burgess Owens, who played for the NFL and is now the Republican candidate in Utah's 4th Congressional District, just ripped the league and its decision to join the left-wing mob.

While the former football safety agrees that “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing" is "a beautiful song" and a "piece of history," he said the song is not a "black national anthem." Owens recognizes only one national anthem for all Americans. "It's time to stop forcing segregation and be one," Owens tweeted. 

Owens grew up in the Deep South during segregation and sees the current protests as part of an "orchestrated" race war with the objective of getting "the last segregationist in politics [Joe Biden] elected president."
