Goodell has recently apologized for the NFL response and action and has pledged 250 million to black causes over the next few years. Now NFL is planning on changing the
anthem up a little bit, for Week 1. The league is planning on playing “Lift Ev’ry Voice And Sing” before each game during week 1 of the NFL season, which is considered  the “Black National Anthem.” This is following the trend of  NASCAR race, which the song was recently played at recent race.
