NFL legend Jim Brown met with President Donald Trump at the White House, yesterday, and was asked about players kneeling during the National Anthem:
I can be very blunt about taking a knee. See, first of all, I’m an American. That flag is my flag. Things that I’ve overcome in this country have allowed me to make me a better person. I don’t think that we should take knees in protest instead of be standing up for our flag. I think we should work out our problems as a family. And that’s what I would advocate to my children and to all the young people that I deal with.
