Default NFL Not yet "Woke" enough

https://www.westernjournal.com/naacp...estern-journal

The NFL is beginning to learn the hard truth that there’s no such thing as woke enough.

Even as the league chose to sidle up to the Black Lives Matter and other race-baiting initiatives — losing viewers in the process — it hasn’t stopped the NAACP from pushing for even more self-destructive action by the NFL.

In a scathing letter to league commissioner Roger Goodell on March 9, Derrick Johnson, president and chief executive officer of the NAACP, urged the league to cut ties with Fox during the NFL’s annual broadcasting rights negotiations.

If there is one thing that the NFL cars about, it is money. If Fox is willing to pony up more money than the other networks, the NFL will sign a contract with them. What will be interesting to see is how they respond to the left when the NFL realizes how it affects their bottom line.
