Yesterday, Vice President Mike Pence attended the game between his home team, Indianapolis Colts, and the San Francisco 49ers at LucasOil Field in Indianapolis.
However, he was offended by the players from San Francisco 49ers who were kneeling during the national anthem.
After he saw their disrespectful behavior he left the game.
According to the Liberty Writers, later on, he tweeted how much he doesn’t support their pointless behavior. When the game finished, safety Eric Reid spoke about his actions.
Eric is one of the first players who decided to kneel together with Colin Kaepernick. He claimed that Pence’s actions were “systemic oppression.”
Apparently, he stated: “My honest reaction … Does anybody know the last time he’s been to a football game? With that being said, he tweeted out a three-year-old photo of him at a Colts game so with the information I have the last time he was at a Colts game was three years ago. So this looks like a PR stunt to me. He knew our team has had the most players protest. He knew that we were probably going to do it again. This is what systemic oppression looks like. A man with power comes to the game, tweets a couple of things out and leaves the game with an attempt to thwart our efforts. Based on the information I have, that’s the assumption I’ve made.”

It seems that he doesn’t find any understanding in what kind of disrespect he shows when he kneels during the national anthem. He is offending many people who love the country and just want to watch their favorite sport. Even though they haven’t accomplished anything with their protesting, they still continue to keep up with it.
