Sen. Ted Cruz is not a fan of the NFL’s plan to play the Black National Anthem before games during the first week of the season.
The Republican from Texas called the plan “asinine” on Twitter.
“How many national anthems do we have??” he wrote.
He then asked if there is a Hispanic national anthem or an Asian American national anthem.
“This is asinine. We are ONE America. E Pluribus Unum,” he tweeted.
According to ESPN, the NFL will play “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” which is also known as the Black national anthem, before every Week 1 NFL game.
It will be played before “The Star-Spangled Banner,” according to the report.
The NFL has not commented on the plan.
