“It is sick and disgusting to think that even Netflix, someone that big and popular, would even put something out like that to penetrate the minds of these kids, should be illegal,” former NFL Defensive Back Jack Brewer said Monday, condemning Netflix’s special featuring former NFL player-turned-racial-activist Colin Kaepernick.

The Netflix special likens the NFL draft and training camp combine to slavery, Fox News explains:

A line of actors playing NFL prospects, all of them Black, then walk by Kaepernick before morphing into slaves at an auction with shackles on while White slave owners bid on them. 

"Colin in Black & White" explored the former NFL star’s life from high school to the events that supposedly led him to become an advocate for social justice. One clip that had gone viral on social media showed Kaepernick comparing the scrutiny players receive from coaches to that of slavers

….

At one point, the owners start whipping the players as Kaepernick attempts to make the comparison between the abuse slaves suffered in the United States and the NFL combine process that determines which players are drafted into the league.

“It is sick and disgusting to think that even Netflix, someone that big and popular, would even put something out like that to penetrate the minds of these kids, should be illegal,” Brewer said Monday in a Fox News interview.

Kaepernick “has an evil, anti-American spirit,” should be promoting positivity to young black and African-American men, and needs to do some serious self-reflection, Brewer said:

“This one hurts me, because every day I get up, and I go out and try to help young African American boys become men, and try to instill those values. And when you have someone like this, who has the audacity to call multi-millionaires ‘slaves’ and compare a process of someone living their dream, going to the National Football League, comparing that to slavery, it’s gone over overboard.

“And I think Colin Kaepernick needs to do some soul searching. You just watched that video, you see how dark it is, and to take the most fragmented, the most vulnerable population we have in America, where we have kids that 70% of them don’t have fathers, most, a lot of them can’t, their reading and math proficiency levels rate against third world countries. You have kids that are already hopeless and then you go out and push this mentality and you’re supposed to be someone that’s a leader.

“Think about the movement that this guy started, the opportunity that he had, that he could actually come in and promote positivity to young black and African-American men and tell them how great this country is. He doesn’t have that spirit. He has an evil, anti-American spirit.

“It is sick and disgusting to think that even Netflix, someone that big and popular, would even put something out like that to penetrate the minds of these kids, should be illegal.”

Brewer noted that he went through the NFL’s draft and combine process and emerged with his dignity intact. Instead of being told that they’re victims, young black men should be taught that they’re living in a country of unparalleled opportunity and prosperity, Brewer said:

“My dignity is in place – and, I did go through the NFL combine. This new Colin Kaepernick Doctrine that’s penetrating the minds and hearts of so many of our underserved black kids across America is the single largest threat to black men in the United States of America.

“Because right now, folks are thinking that they’re victims, and they’re living in the most prosperous, the most opportunity, in any country in the world.”
