Huffington Post reports, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of Sunday’s NFL game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers as several 49ers players knelt in protest during a rendition of the national anthem.
In response to Pence’s protest, San Francisco's 49ers, Eric Reid, stated, “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.”

Food for thought:
Just when I was beginning to like Pence... He pulls a Donald Trump Stunt!!
To put an end to the back and forth protesting, how about issuing an executive order for Human Rights Protection, to bring an end to Police Brutality against African Americans, and extend the protection to military servicemen and women.
In the past, Pence made it perfectly clear how he feels about the integration of women in the military, as well as women serving in Combat roles, and for him to take a stand in defense of military veterans is hypocritical at best!!
With such a bold move, to mimic the actions of Trump, he obviously didn’t get the memo, as to why the NFL players are taking a kneel, translation, they are taking a stand against police brutality!! Duh.....
Not only do African Americans fear for their lives when they encounter law enforcement, military personnel also fear for their safety when they are forced to serve in integrated working environments, where their basic Civil Rights are not upheld by their supervisors or the Pentagon, subsequently leaving them to suffer Human Rights violations, such as Rape, Sexual Assault, and in the case of PFC LaVena Johnson, murder!!!
And Trump has made it perfectly clear how he feels about women...
And you call yourselves leaders!!!!!!!!?
