Legendary Cleveland Browns running back Jim Brown lambasted anthem-protester Colin Kaepernick, saying he needs to act more intelligently.
He also attacked his glaring lack of patriotism.
“I’m going to give you the real deal: I’m an American,” Brown said. “I don’t desecrate my flag and my national anthem.”
He went on to criticize Kaepernick for lacking intelligence on two fronts. The first being that, working out social justice problems in America can be done “in an intelligent manner,” not by kneeling during the national anthem.
But kneeling for the national anthem the way Kaepernick did last season as 49ers quarterback isn’t how Brown would show leadership.
