Why taking the knee stomps on my foot

( CNN) This entire protest narrative has been provocative, but I like it when I’m made to think.

On Sunday, watching my first Buffalo Bills game in the two weeks since the protests proliferated, I was proud of Vice President Mike Pence choosing to walk outof the game after some of the San Francisco 49 ers took a knee.

It made me think about the issue again, like I did after Seth Meyers talked about it on his “Late Night” show last month. Meyers stimulated his phase about his love of football — and support for the protesters — in a respectful way, and he never once spoke of how , combat veterans and families of the fallen should feel. Instead, he explained how he personally feels about NFL players taking a knee during the National Anthem.
