Ernie Johnson Jr of TNT recently addressed the Alabama football team. His message was simple. There's value in everybody. You will be able to listen to the entire speech, one of the best five minute messages I've ever heard. Ernie ended the speech by saying “be a better human”. I also talk about Lift Every Voice and Sing, often referred to as the Black national anthem. I read excerpts both pro and con, from media members around the country. The Black national anthem will be played before every NFL regular season game this season.
