Millionaire Says Mike Pence Walking Is “What Systemic Oppression Looks Like” [VIDEO]

Eric Reid, NFL kneeler and whiner, thinks the Vice President walking out of a game is a “PR stunt” and “systemic oppression” of black people.

49ers safety Eric Reid accused Vice President Mike Pence walking out of his game as a publicity stunt that was also “systemic oppression.” On the other hand, the actions of Eric Reid in kneeling instead of standing for the national anthem are not a PR stunt but a serious protest.

How can anyone pretend not to see the extreme hypocrisy? Pence has more right to leave a game he is not obligated to watch than Reid does to disregard the terms of a contract that makes him a millionaire.

The local Bay Area NBC affiliate reports, “Vice President Pence Leaves 49ers Game After Players Protest During National Anthem.

Reid also suggested that Pence’s exit seemed to be a “PR stunt.”

“He knew our team has had the most players protest,” Reid told NBC Sports Bay Area. “He knew that we were probably going to do to it again. This is what systemic oppression looks like. A man with power comes to a game, he tweets a couple things out and leaves the game with an attempt to thwart our efforts.”

President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter after the start of the game that he requested Pence to “leave the stadium if any players kneeled, disrespecting our country.” In the same tweet, Trump said he was “proud” of Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence, who was also in attendance.

If Reid thinks a man who makes a fraction of his yearly salary walking out of a game counts as systemic oppression, perhaps we can come up with a reason an NFL player would be such a complainer. Is there a reason why the NFL players feel especially “oppressed” by police?

Can you think of something?

Clickbait and joking aside, this lady has the numbers!
