America-First superstar Kari Lake is going viral again, outraging the radical left and fake news media for taking a seat during the Woke NFL’s “Black National Anthem” performance at Superbowl LVII.
Lake later told Fox News, “James Weldon Johnson’s ‘Lift Your Voice’ is a beautiful song, but it is not our National Anthem.”
As The Gateway Pundit reported, influencer, “Victoriously Aware” actress, and author Sheryl Lee Ralph sang the Black National Anthem at the big game Sunday.
NFL Plays Divisive Black National Anthem Before Super Bowl LVII – With Woke Activist Singer (VIDEO)
The Western Journal reported,
In 2020, the so-called black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” was first introduced as a newfound staple to be sung before every NFL game.
The song, a Christian hymn honoring the birthday of Republican President Abraham Lincoln, certainly has noble origins. But the reason for its inclusion before pro football games was anything but noble.
According to Time, the NFL introduced the song as a “black” national anthem in “an effort to reinforce the league’s professed newfound alignment with Black Lives Matter.”
The “black national anthem” was added as a concession to those who felt the “racist” origins of “The Star-Spangled Banner” didn’t represent them.
Benny Johnson tweeted the photo of Kari Lake sitting during the divisive “Black National Anthem.” Kari responded, “I’m just here for THE National Anthem.”

Kari Lake War Room, in response to backlash, reiterated some of Lake’s feelings on the matter and reminded Twitter users that Democrat Katie Hobbs, who stole the 2022 Election from Lake, is a twice-convicted racist like most Democrats.
Our girl is against the idea of a “black National Anthem” for the same reason she’s against a “white National Anthem”
She subscribes to the idea of “one Nation, under God” @katiehobbs is against it because she just simply hates black people. https://t.co/ZKdX3fNB1a
