Earlier this month, Vice President Mike Pence left an Indianapolis Colts game to protest players kneeling during the national anthem. It’s something athletes across the country, including Atlanta, are doing on the field to protest police violence against African-Americans. Ameer Mohammed of Atlanta says he wants his own experiences with police to be a learning experience for his children. GPB  intern Maya Martin produced a conversation between Ameer and his son, Faheem.
