Eric Reid continues to kneel even after the lack of interest in picking up Kaepernick this season. As he continues his silent protest there is still push back and hate against him for doing so.
Most commenters on the protest are worried about the soldiers that died for the flag instead of why he is protesting. Reid choose to kneel when he could have done something extremely disrespectful.
He is simply trying to put a spot light on the issues that most people would love to just sweep into the shadows.
The truth of the matter is you cant fix a problem that you refuse to acknowledge. Ignoring racism in America is not going to make racism go away. If you ignore cancer it will eat away at you body. We have been ignoring the cancer that is racism for too long so if you truly love America its time for us to fix this problem.
