More Bootlicking from Jim Brown

August 28, 2017 | Revolution Newspaper |


Last week, Jim Brown, who is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and claims a reputation as a voice against oppression of Black people, attacked Colin Kaepernick and other football players for their national anthem protest.

Last season, Kaepernick, then with the San Francisco 49ers, began refusing to stand for the anthem, in protest of police terror and brutality against people of color, and others have taken his lead, including into this season. Brown said, “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.”

This is the same Jim Brown that met with Trump last December at Trump Tower in NYC and said of this known racist monster, “...I fell in love with him because he really talks about helping African American, Black people...”

The same Jim Brown that said about the Black Live Matter movement in 2015, “The problem that I’m looking at, is young, black men terrorizing their own community.” Fuck you, Jim Brown. Intelligent manner? You mean bootlicking manner.
