Hall Of Famer Jim Brown To Kaepernick: I’m An American, I Don’t Desecrate My National Anthem

Wayne Dupree: "Many of you are getting tired of hearing the name Colin Kaepernick, who believes he’s on the side of justice right now with all the help he’s getting from black activists."

Dupree Continues:

I have to admit, I am tired of the story but when NFL Hall of Famer Jim Brown weighs in and his position puts Kaepernick’s decision into perspective, you have to know about it.
Brown came up with there was real racism in the National Football League. Brown saw true discrimination and dealt with it on a regular basis. But when he was on the field of play, he played the game. What does that mean for Kaepernick? It shows how far our culture has sunk into whiny tears and crybabies based on what Brown went through.
Brown wasn’t able to sit and eat at the lunch counter and he was an activist back then and everyone knew it and respected him for it but he never took it out on the game that paid him to play.
Brown’s statement to the media, the activists who think they are helping Kaepernick and to the former 49ers quarterback himself, is a pointed and direct one that every American should listen to and accept it for their own message.

Brown opened up about Kaep to The Post Game … saying, “I want to be in his corner, and I do think, ‘God bless him’ — but noting, “Colin has to make up his mind whether he’s truly an activist or he’s a football player.”
“Football is commercial. You have owners. You have fans. And you want to honor that if you’re making that kind of money.”“I can’t be two things at once that contradict each other. If I sign for money, then the people I sign with, they have rules and regulations.”
As for the protest, Brown says … “I’m going to give you the real deal: I’m an American. I don’t desecrate my flag and my national anthem.”
“I’m not gonna do anything against the flag and national anthem. I’m going to work within those situations. But this is my country, and I’ll work out the problems, but I’ll do it in an intelligent manner.”
