    I have a deep respect and admiration for Jim Brown. I didn't even know about him before. I agree with eveything I heard him say in this video.

    People just don't get it Jim Brown whole tone has done a 360 from what he preached against, the real issue is Colin didn't seek Jim council and he felt some sort of way and that's a fact

    Jim Brown is 82 years old and grew up without the internet. I appreciate him and I respect my elders. BUT, he has no idea what he would have done if he were 20 years old today. He might not have ever been involved in sports. He might have watched a few thousand videos of police brutality and done something completely different. It doesn't take much time or effort to find a tremendous amount of injustice. If he were 20 today and was in the NFL I believe it is safe to say he would be taking a knee and leading the charge.

    Kaep ain't no activist. That fool just picked this B.S. cause he's pissed that no team wants him because he basically sucks. Oh so now it's racist aye? GTFO

    Much much much love to the legendary Jim Brown, but with all due respect to him, HE was a football player and an activist. Plus what he said about Colin Kaepernick contradicts what he said in his interview with Graham Bensinger, and what he said in the Graham Bensinger interview is why Colin Kaepernick took a knee in the first place.

    Scrolled through a lot of comments, and once again if you don't embrace the group-think mentality, you're somehow a traitor to your race. This man was fighting for equal rights before most of you fuckers were born. He spent 30 years working with the gangs in LA and saved many gang members from death or prison. And now, since he doesn't drink the Kool-Aid on a professional football player with his bogus protest you call him vile names. Let me tell you something; as long as you insist on everyone thinking exactly the same thing, you're not going to get anywhere! All you'll do is alienate those who might have been inclined to help. You will never attain your goals this way. Listen to the man. He's been there.

    Jim is not involved nor interested in divide and conquer ideology. Jim does not see that is what is now going on in the NFL. NFL has become a tool for the Political Globalists. NFL Football used to be a place where we could go to escape politics . Tim Tebow was eventually let go for taking knees during game play to show is thanks to Christ the Lord. Christians invented the Game of Football.. When Tebow was let go, we should have all seen this coming and what the NFL had changed into. Axiomatic.

    I am a white middle aged American. I believe there are many injustices in this world we live in. Honestly I believe we should listen to people who feel that they're being treated unfairly because of race, gender, or any reason really. I believe there are hateful people of every color. For the most part America is the land of opportunity. A hard worker can accomplish anything. Every human should have the right to say whatever it is that he feels be it hateful or not. There is no denying that some police racially profile. The police officers are only human and can make mistakes. With that said I know there are those officers out there that are racist. We need to do a better job of monitoring not only our police officers but also any elected officials. The average middle class Caucasian believes that black and white must unite. For this country to truly be the greatest country on earth we need to stand up against racism, and bullies. Everybody has the right to feel free and comfortable no matter where they are. When will we stop hating? That has got to be the first step. Stop hating your fellow man.

This statement contradicts all his hard work he's put in through the years of his career. Colin donates and contributes his time to many charities and youth programs. Nobody talks about that.

    I watched and heard reactions and saw posts before I actually heard what he said, and thought he said something outlandish. But I mean, he has a good point. NFL is commercial and there's really no point not to be like everyone else and just stand, ya know? But I also don't agree w him not being able to get picked up.. But its whatever to me I just find it interesting

  • prn72271
    prn72271 2 years ago +2

    He is not speaking truth. What rules and regulations did Kaep break? The man did not even ask for any attention. He did not ask for the spot light. Nothing unintelligent about that. this was initially about his conscience, not a big movement.
    The national anthem does not include black people, well..in any positive way. Black people could not even go certian places or vote until the 1960's, so it is an impossibility for black folks to be included in it. Jim Brown is free to honor what he wants but that is truth.
    Anyways, it is a joke. There is nothing moral or immoral about standing or sitting for a national anthem. The irony is that the right (conservatives) are so caught up in their feelings over this. Saying they are Christians while idolizing carnal earthy things. Jesus said His kingdom was not of this world, America included.

    Some sacrifices are to great to bare for the average man. Jim Brown explained he is not all that great a man to have made such a great sacrifice. and “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.” Dr Martin Luther King

    • Gentris mOORE

      Amie Foerster, i'm not sure if you have the right comment for depicting my comments? But I consider a person’s action by what is on display through observable behavior. Judging a person by color is foolish to me.
      After being implied color blindness is also handicap to the socially constructed quality of life. Therefore the reality of life is incongruent to the idea of life when we think about dismissing a person’s identity (color).
      Positive direct action requires us to have a clear and open conscious, with an awareness of our social learning history.
      Innovation and civilized thought adds to the quality of life’s experiences.
      Things don’t change by standing idly by waiting for the privileged member of our society to take notice that we have some people hurt on the field.
      Jim Brown is taking a passive position, and misreading reason, and he has jumped on the idea that it was disrespecting our country, flag police and other patriotic symbols, yet, This is a “red herring, and a convenient strategy to dismiss the issue at hand.

    I disagree Jim Brown is not my hero Kaepernick is; Jim Brown just explained to you that he is safe to the point of being to afraid to boldly sacrifice and stand for justice, this makes Jim Brown an Idle Man. It would have been better if JB had said nothing and held his position as a passive activist. “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.” Dr Martin Luther King

Jim Brown is not my hero, because if it was up to him he would chose to do what's safe and to become ineffective to the cause. I can't listen to a man set idly by: “There comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because conscience tells him it is right.” Dr Martin Luther King

      Kaepernick is an American too, so what? and Colin is also an American activist standing for justice in the American way, bringing attention to the equal protection laws as outlined in the 14th Amendment of the Constitution. If it got your attention Noland Gleason it was a cause well orchestrated. You must be referring to the individuals in Carolina totting around anti-American Confederate Flags calling for separation on many fronts to the citizens of the Union of States. Jim Browns OK, but he is not a True American Action Hero in this book.

    • Jay Senise
      Jay Senise 2 years ago

      DropSixteenTV Tv: just my opinion, so if what you're saying is true and Kapernick did all these things (donated, paid for, enlighten) and most importantly sacrificed. Assuming he did indeed do all these things with an open mind and after the backlash started he continued to carry on his objective (which I personally believe you are correct and Kapernick did do all these things and thought that his message was bigger/more important than his bank account and football career) {my question is} why doesn't he just make a statement to the public that he did this and he's accepted his fate and he doesn't need boycotting of the NFL, doesn't want protests outside the NFL headquarters, doesn't need everyone making him look like a victim in an attempt to strong arm some football team to hire him? Don't forget, He quit his last job with SF. He was actually signed for this year but chose to hit free agency. Seems like he's happy to have everybody else fighting his battle for him. Or maybe he really doesn't care. If so, tell the people! Oh and if he was actually being "black balled" by the NFL, let me tell you something, Roger Goodell would have suspended him for 16 games without pay for conduct detrimental! He has the power and he loves to flex his suspension muscles. So case closed on black ball conspiracy theory! Mic dropped. Gnite

  • Charles Lumia
    Charles Lumia 2 years ago

    It's definitely disrespectful to sit during the national anthem. That's my opinion, obviously, but it just so happens to be the opinion of millions of Americans.
    The NFL made its decision. Collectively it chose its fans over a player. If you don't like it, don't watch. That's the same choice I would have had to make if they chose differently.

    • Charles Lumia
      Charles Lumia 2 years ago

      I see what you're saying about many people dissing the anthem. Plenty of people do it I'm sure, right there in the stadium too. It's just that the cameras aren't on them so nobody notices or cares.
      That should be considered though. Kaepernick knew, as a quarterback in the NFL, that people like him, watch him, pay attention to his actions, etc. Being in such a position you have to be more cautious I think.
      You gave a good example with the wife beating players though. They're in a similar position, people know them, watch them, etc. yet many of things that they do are seemingly ignored by many.
      Maybe the position, being in the spotlight as an NFL quarterback, plays a role in it. Greg Hardy, while a good player, wasn't nearly as well known (I can't even think of his position) on defense as he would have been if he were a quarterback, let alone a starting quarterback who played in a Superbowl.
      Going back to Michael Vick since he was a quarterback too: He obviously did terrible things to those dogs and I believe he went to prison for it. Generally he isn't well liked among the NFL fans that I know but he certainly was given a pass by the NFL and others. He played in the NFL afterward. He still has some sort of association with the NFL I believe.
      If Michael Vick gets a pass from the NFL it seems like Kaepernick should definitely get a pass from them too. I can't speak for the NFL obviously but I can speak for myself and I was completely against what Vick and Kaepernick did. Not that what they did is on the same level, just comparing them since they're quarterbacks.

    • prn72271
      prn72271 2 years ago

      Charles Lumia you are reading my comment simplistically.
      Many people are dissing the anthem and there is no outcry? That is the point I am making.
      The nfl is not worried about the billions when they employ an abusive convict. Its not billions either, people around the world dont give a backside about The US anthem. This is tribalism at best.
      You can feel anyway you want (i respect that) but it is just that, a feeling. What he does, does not affect your patriotism, does it?

    • Charles Lumia
      Charles Lumia 2 years ago +1

      There are nearly half a billion football fans in the world (I guessed at that number). Over a hundred million of us for sure. It's unreasonable to lump all football together and say that they are getting beers during the anthem, etc. Most people stand towards the flag and put their hand on their hearts as they respectfully should.
      As for the Greg Hardy and conservative comments, that's obviously silly. I don't know anyone who thought that players beating their wives/girlfriends was a good thing or supported the action at all. Same with Michael Vick and the dog fighting. There was and is a lot of animosity towards all of those players from football fans.
      Back to Kaepernick specifically: I found him sitting during the national anthem to be disrespectful. Of course he has every right to do so, he was simply expressing himself. But it's offensive to many of us. It's like racist and bigoted people. Sure, of course they have every right to be racist and bigoted but that doesn't mean that we reasonable people can't call them out on their nonsense.
      Kaepernick could have expressed himself and his views in a more reasonable way if he wanted people to listen. You don't get anyone's ear by offending and insulting them.

    • prn72271
      prn72271 2 years ago

      Charles Lumia chose fans over players? These same fans who will support men who do all sort of wickedness. No national outcry from conservatives about Greg Hardy?
      It goes to show you how morally bankrupt people who claim to know God are. They put feelings and symbols over actual people.
      What I find ironic is how many servicemen and women have supported the man but yet people who are getting beers, hot dogs and chatting rubbish during the anthem (whether at home or at the game) are "outraged".

      Alright, while i'm here anyway... I've kept my mouth shut about this to see what you athletes would do on your own. You DO know you used to be my people. Our nations always excelled in excellence in everything, including of course taking care of our bodies, being in shape, and of course competition to keep us working at excellence. Now, of course, Evil would know this. Which is why Sports became the door into his world. He'd hand you millions and a chance for Fame, and out went another Light, and another Soul was lost. You guys can see no further than this world. Once you became a millionaire and was having the Good Life, this became all that was important to you. You have millions, mansions, cars, boats, planes, beautiful wives, children, and yet - you're not happy. You think you are because you have everything, but something is missing isn't it? It's your Soul. The Soul that knew we were all family and took care of each other. The Soul that had a Conscience and knew the difference between right and wrong. The Soul that knew that this was just a time of testing and growing and that one day it would be over and we would look back and wonder how we made it through without becoming evil. And that's when you would think of me and be so grateful I forgave you and slapped you upside the head and said, "Wake up !" Which is what i'm doing right now. "Wake up ! " We have our people out on the streets because they can't fit into the white man's world, or don't want to. They are our people. Our people are in jails and don't belong there. Our people are living in poverty. Our people have to look into their children's eyes on Christmas and they both cry.Our people are veterans and some are having a hard time. There are so many good and innocent people, our people, in this country, hurting, that could use some help. A friend. A rescue. Just enough money to get a car to get a job. Maybe tuition to college. So many ways you could help others instead of just helping yourself. By caring only for yourself, you no longer are family. And you are alone in this world. You didn't used to be. Now, get your stingy ass to the bank and take out at least 10-20%, tax deductible, and go make people happy. Let them know someone loves them. All you need in return is a smile, because you do it out of love for others. And while I'm at it, every time you get hit you bang your brain around. How many millions do you suppose you all have to keep making, anyway? I hate it when you get hurt; your life damaged, just so some fat, rich, evil, lizard can make money and sleep with beautiful men. I wish you all would come back home. But you can't half ass it. You have to want it. Things are changing. I don't know what's going to happen, but things are changing from what we can all see. Please remember who you used to be before you became a rich man. I love you all. Always, Colin's mom

    Preach Jim preach!

    Jim Brown, have a point. However, Jim Brown, is not Kaepernick. Although, a person sign a contract, in any Professional Sport. No where, in that contract by law, that say one give up his constitutional rights, in US. Kaepernick, have every right,
    not to stand or kneel, during the National Anthem, under the constitution of the US. There, are those that agree and those
    that may disagree with Kaepernick method, in regard to him protesting, about the mistreatment of Black people, in US. It
    does not make Kaepernick method wrong because he doing a little different, than Jim Brown stance, in his error.
    What if someone, want to take on a religious stance, in regarding the flag?
    Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or
    that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.
    Leviticus 26: beginning verse. Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image,
    neither shall ye set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the LORD your God.
    See folks, a flag or any other man made idol, we are not to worship it, nor give praise too it. That, is a form of Idolatry.
    1 Corinthians 10:14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.
    " The devil, plant the seed, that if one does not honor, the flag, in US or any other country, that have a flag, that person
    is wrong. Worshipping and praising any idols, are an abomination, against God.
    1 Corinthians 6: 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither
    fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.
    See, the vast media outlets and vast population of people, in US, is more focused on Kaepernick, did not honor the flag.
    Instead, of being much concern, about the injustices of people, in America. Why put more emphasize, on a flag, that is
    an idol, than placing more emphasize, on injustices towards humans, in US or any where, in the world? The God, I serve,
    does not want his people, committing idolatry. Many of these preachers, of the cloth, need to tell the people, the truth
    about worshipping or praising any idol, is wrong, in God sight. Many, will say, I serve in the US military and that is wrong,
    to not honor the US flag and many will say, that serve in the US military. We fought, for your freedom, to give you the right,
    to have freedom of expression, under the constitution. Many of us, have relatives, that served in the military before and
    some relatives, that are still active, in the military. However, obeying God, is far more important, than obeying the will of
    Satan. Never, allow pride, to cause you, to disobey the LORD.
    FYI: I understand, NFL Owners, Sponsors and Fans have expectations.

    I respect Jim Brown on everything he has done for the community. But a knee doesn't deserve the backlash he has received. He can still play which most try to make seem like a fairytale, lol. He played in the Superbowl and people who don't like him try to say well anybody can do that, LMAO!! The man deserves a shot, but will the NFL Slave Owners give him one is the question???
