Via Charlotte Observer:

“If a day comes that I feel like we’ve addressed those issues, and our people aren’t being discriminated against or being killed over traffic violations, then I’ll decide it’s time to stop protesting,” Reid told the Observer. “I haven’t seen that happen.”

In fact, Reid said, he believes America is getting a little worse for African-Americans.

“It feels like we’re going backwards,” Reid said. “You’d like to think we’re past certain things, the way we treat people. I thought we were at a time where you love your neighbor as yourself. But as I’ve studied history — it hasn’t repeated itself necessarily, but it’s dressed a little different and is acting the same.”

There weren’t any issues with Reid’s protests last season and there probably won’t be any this season as well.  Whether or not you agree with his views or protest, everyone should agree that he has the right to do so.
