National Football League executives: the league’s “social justice” message is “massively strengthened”

The NFL’s first game is scheduled to be held this week, and a top league official confirmed that the message of “social justice” will continue to be promoted in the 2021-2022 season.

NFL players can wear social justice messages on their helmets again this season. As part of the league’s Inspire Change platform, “It Takes All of Us” and “End Racism” will be stamped in the end zone for the second year in a row.

The league will also resume the “Tell Their Stories” program, and each team will emphasize their social justice work for the first time in the 17th and 18th regular season home games.

Anna Isaacson, NFL’s senior vice president of social responsibility, told the Associated Press: “As the season begins, the key message for us is that we will again vigorously carry out social justice work.”

A few years ago, former quarterback Colin Kaepernick (Colin Kaepernick) and other players knelt while playing the American national anthem, which aroused great anger from fans, and NFL players came under fire. At that time, NFL executives were reluctant to express support for Kaepernick and others, but after the riots and protests in 2020, the alliance was swallowed by “anti-racism” messages and allowed “social justice” messages to proliferate.

About a year ago, NFL President Roger Goodall posted a video message saying that the league “[believes] The lives of black people are important,” and his organization admitted that “it is wrong not to listen to NFL players early and encourage everyone to speak out and protest peacefully.” This may refer to Kaepernick.

The term “Black Lives Matter” also refers to a group founded by several self-proclaimed “trained Marxists” and is one of several NFL helmet decals approved by the league. Others include “stop hatred”, “it needs all of us”, “inspire change” and “tell their story.”

Last season, the league allowed players to engrave the names of George Floyd, Brenna Taylor, Trevon Martin and Ahmed Abery on their helmets. It is not clear whether the NFL will continue this trend in the 2021-2022 season.

Isaacson told the news media: “This will provide us with a unified time frame to further expand all the work that our club is doing and will enter the playoffs. Inspiring change will continue to take center stage.” “As the season progresses. In the beginning, the key message for us is that we are vigorously working on social justice.”

With the decline in TV ratings of sports events (including NBA games and Tokyo Olympics), the news consistent with “black people’s fate is also fate” continues.Compared with 2019-2020 NFL Season average ratings, The audience for the 2020-2021 season has decreased by about 7%, with an average of 15.4 million viewers.
