“This is what systemic oppression looks like”

A quick follow-up to my football piece from this morning, here’s San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid on Vice-President Pence’s “walkout” stunt:

“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,” Reid said.

“This is what systemic oppression looks like,” he said. “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.”

Sounds right to me.
