BEREA, Ohio -- Jim Brown stands 100 percent behind Colin Kaepernick in his decision not to stand for the national anthem before games. Rams Jerseys From China .Brown, the Cleveland Browns Hall of Fame running back and longtime social activist, appeared on a panel discussion on the NFL Network on Monday night and said that Kaepernick made all the sense in the world in explaining his position.Hes within his rights and hes telling the truth as he sees it, Brown said. I am with him 100 percent.Kaepernick has declined to stand for the anthem at preseason games, saying he did not want to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.Brown said that criticism of the San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks methods in not standing were off base. He added, though, that he would not protest the same way.I dont know what the big issue is, because this young man in backing up his statement, becomes stronger in my mind, Brown said. Now if you ask me Would I do that? No I wont, because I see it a little differently.Im an American citizen. I pay my taxes. I want my equal rights. But this is my country, and consequently I dont want to open up for ISIS or anybody that will take away what weve already gained.Brown said he appeared on the panel not to focus on Kaepernick but the things that it opens up.And the No. 1 issue in the country for me is black homicide, young black men killing young black men, Brown said.He said other groups have worked together to improve their communities. As examples, he mentioned Jewish and Spanish communities.If we came together with our great athletes and our great scholars and said, As African-Americans, when we have a community thats defined, were going to make it the cleanest, nicest, most well-educated, hard-working community in this country, ... I think that will knock down a lot of walls, Brown said.Brown praised Kaepernick for taking a stand, adding its encouraging to see young athletes making social statements. He mentioned when NBA stars Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James opened the ESPYS by talking about the necessity to end gun violence.The young men of today are stepping up, Brown said. For so many years they did not step up.He added he was happy that Pandoras box is open with African-American athletes speaking up against what they see as injustice.For me, Brown said, its like going back in time. Youth Rams Jerseys .
