Several Cleveland Browns Players Appeared In A Pre-game Video on Racial Inequality (VIDEO)
If you thought Colin Kaepernick not being in the league this season would stop protests or discussions about race, you thought wrong.
During the preseason, as many as 12 or 13 Cleveland Browns players kneeled together during the playing of the National Anthem, putting the sports world on notice with a demonstration that hadn’t been seen before.
They kept those vibes going just before their game against the Pittsburgh Steelers by appearing on the FirstEnergy Stadium’s video board discussing racial inequality in the United States. The video featured messages from several players, including Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas, quarterback DeShone Kizer, linebackers Jamie Collins and Christian Kirksey, and coach Hue Jackson.
The Browns apparently got the idea after speaking with NFL legend Jim Brown during the preseason.
