*Jim Brown says he’s all for Colin Kaepernick calling attention to racial disparities in the U.S., but the NFL great has a serious problem with the way the quarterback has gone about it.

In an interview with The Post Game, Brown said he would never protest by going against American symbols like the flag or national anthem.

“I want to be in his corner, and I do think, ‘God bless him,’ he said, but added, “Colin has to make up his mind whether he’s truly an activist or he’s a football player.”

“Football is commercial. You have owners. You have fans. And you want to honor that if you’re making that kind of money,” he continued. …”I can’t be two things at once that contradict each other. If I sign for money, then the people I sign with, they have rules and regulations.”

As for Kaep taking a knee last 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.”
