Lift Ev'ry Voice and Sing - At the Super Bowl. Yea or Nay? [View all]

It's a great song.

But it feels like I got thrown a bone. What is really being done? I would love to see a collage of images of the work that NFL players are doing in communities. I would love to see numbers flash of the charitable donations that owners are making in these communities. Maybe during the song, there could be a collage of those whom we have lost to acts of violence. I have heard that they started adding the song because of George Floyd. A song? Really?
