Eric Reid decides to kneel during anthem again: We’re not “un-American.”

Eric Reid protested during the national anthem all last year, kneeling with then teammate-Colin Kaepernick, but decided this offseason it was time to move on.

With time to reflect on what happened two weeks ago in Charlottesville, he decided he needed to continue.

Reid was again on one knee during last night’s game against the Vikings, and explained to reporters afterward why he had the “change of heart.”

“A lot of thinking. A lot of praying. Talking to Colin.” he said, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. “When we started last year, if you recall, we said our goal was to raise awareness and shed light on the issues that were happening in our country. I think we accomplished that goal. What I was upset about was the narrative, the false narrative, that were being told about us, people saying that we’re un-American, that we’re against police entirely and the military. That just wasn’t true. At first I thought that was a small sacrifice to pay to get the word out and raise awareness. I settled with thinking raising that awareness was victory.

“Then fast forward to Charlottesville and the country sees what an un- American protest really looks like. That’s when I had my change of heart.
