The NFL reportedly will play the Black national anthem, “Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing,” prior to “The Star-Spangled Banner” in Week 1. The Golden State Warriors’ star Stephen Curry sees that as a blank response to protests around the country. He responded to an Instagram post on the news, saying “Can someone please explain to me how this solves anything?”

Curry wants real change, not just a mirage of a solution. It’s a near guarantee a large number of players will kneel or find some other form of protest during the anthem ahead of games this season. Many players already have said they will do so.
The two-time NBA MVP has been in support of protests around the world stemming from George Floyd, a Black man who died in Minneapolis police custody.
