49ers Safety Eric Reid Resumes Protest by Kneeling for National Anthem

By Anthony Blake

Despite claims that he would not, San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid decided to kneel for the national anthem once again before the team’s preseason game with the Minnesota Vikings.

Reid previously took a knee alongside Colin Kaepernick last season but had said he planned to abandon the protest this year.

Reid explained the motive behind his change of heart and why he felt resuming the protest was necessary in 2017.

These demonstrations will only continue to be talking points until change is made in the way we operate as a nation.

Unity rather than divisiveness is required before any kneeling will make much of a difference.
