Why Eric Reid’s work ain’t done yet
Domonique Foxworth and Monis Khan discuss why the Carolina Panthers safety is continuing his protest
Although Eric Reid helped the Carolina Panthers earn a thrilling victory in his return to the gridiron Sunday, the veteran safety referred to his first game back in the league this season as “bittersweet.” And with his decision to continue his protest during the national anthem, some Panthers fans may feel the same way.
Regardless of how controversial Reid’s presence on the sidelines may be, Domonique Foxworth discusses why he doesn’t see Colin Kaepernick’s former San Francisco 49ers teammate stopping his activism anytime soon.
The issues of police brutality and social justice remain relevant themes across the country, especially in light of one police officer in Chicago being convicted of second-degree murder in the slaying of Laquan McDonald, while the police officer who shot and killed 12-year-old Tamir Rice was recently hired by another police department in Ohio, a decision Reid himself called “unacceptable.”
