He’s been treated good,” 布朗说. “他有 (一个) Netflix documentary. Don’t get it twisted. See that’s the wrong thing about the world. We think, ‘Oh Kaepernick treated so bad because they don’t let him play football.’ Yeah, they didn’t let him play football, they gave him commercials. They gave him money. I’m not trying to tell you what ‘they’ did, I’m telling you the reality of what happened.

Brown added: “卡佩尼克, I feel like he’s a great guy. He stood for a great cause but he don’t understand. He’s not from Liberty City. He’s not even built like that. Dudes like me, they ban you. They don’t even give you contracts. They don’t even want to deal with you. I’m not really an icon right now. You don’t see them writing no books about me.

Brown also reiterated his remarks on Cigar Talk, saying Kaepernick isn’t fromthe hoodand has never beenin the trenches.

Jones spoke to TMZ体育 on Friday and said he agreed with the former 坦帕湾海盗 star to a point.

As far as the community part, I think AB is right,” 琼斯说. “We haven’t heard anything that Kap did for the community or given back to the community after the settlement.

Where Jones disagreed with Brown was over the desire to play again. Jones has seen Kaepernick work out and still believes he’s gunning for the NFL.

I just think it’s hard for a guy to fairytale for 2.5 小时, three hours every day throwing the ball if you don’t want to play,” Jones添加了. “I think he wants to play. Do he deserve to play? That’s another question. 但, do he want to play? I do think he wants to play.

Kaepernick started a firestorm during the 2016 season when he knelt during the national anthem to protest against racial and social injustices. He was let go after the season and failed to latch onto another team. He accused NFL owners of collaborating to keep him out of the league – which was settled.

He started the Know Your Rights camp toadvance the liberation and well-being of Black and Brown communities through education, self-empowerment, mass-mobilization and the creation of new systems that elevate the next generation of change leaders.
