    That won't stop them from being killed by police though..We are a threat immediatley to them. Ohio is an open carry state..Whites can walk around strapped. Can a black person do that? I agree the black comunity needs to address some things but that won't fix the racism…

  2. Roger Daye says:

    The Black community shouldn't put all of the responsibility for action on James and should collectively boycott as a sign of protest against injustices in the systems that perpetuate racist policies and social and economic injustices.

  3. He was specifically asked about Tamir RIce. Who was a child playing in the park. WHile I agree Men of all color need to step up more with their kids and Americans should have more committment and pride in their community. That will not negate the fact that FOREVER African Americans have been targets of police violence (fatal and other wise) and it has to stop. We need more influental figures Black as well as White / Hispanic etc… speaking out against this issue and not simply saying what Black people could be doing differently!!

  4. Jim brown is getting old!!! Lost his damn mind….

  5. It's all about the greed.

  6. The Black community shouldn't expect LeBron James to not report to his job when most Black folk will not donate a dollar to their local civil rights organizations. To ask him to not play is equivalent to the rest of you to not report to your jobs. Are you willing to not work based on the Grand Jury decision?

  7. That was an Uncle Tom answer if I've ever read one!

  8. You what Black Wall street was that community you speak of! Rosewood was that community you speak of! Did it stop them from killing niggaz?

  9. Jason Moore,
    The issue is does the IMPOSTER police officer value the life of the person they are apprehending despite their action.( evidence repeat itself) REAL Police officers are to protect and service not judge the person because of the color or class of the individual. Today, it seems the IMPOSTER police officers are shooting and using the african american people as target practice and praising one another for the complete shot.(one down the rest to go) This is a different type of Lynching. I find the police officers who are holding inappropriate biases in their heart hiding behind their badge and wearing the blue suit are the sons/daughters, grandchildren of the old slave owner who left the legacy of BIGOTRY to their family. It is easy for the IMPOSTER white police officers to KILL, BEAT, KICK, SETUP, LIE on a child boy/girl because he knows he will be protected. (Let me be clear, not all white police officers are hiding bigotry behind their badge. There are white police officers with true badge of honor) To add there are some african american police officers who need to redirect their attitude and behavior against their race as well.
    Focus on the crime and action to remove off the street, away from the community, and society in a more safe and appropriapte measure for both the police officer and person of interest. Shot to KILL is not the answer. Lying saying you were threathen not the answer.

    Jim Brown is correct about what can help build and strenghten the community as a whole therefore no IMPOSTER police officer will come into the community and believe he/she will get away with murdering another african american child or individual. We have to live life with Purpose look within ourselves and to set personal goals that are beneficial to our family and the community. Stop asking for the white race to apologize for their ancestors murders it won't happen. Most white people are uncomfortable, ashamed, embarrassed and guilty. For this reason, they wear a mask as if their grandfather/mother, father/mother, sister/brother, cousins were not murderers of the african american race.( Let me be clear, I don't believe all white people were against or presently against black people because there were a number of white people who die with us and fought for us and presently love and support us) Also, I have lots of great white friends.
    Taken the responsibility of your family and community helps to reduce ammunition for any IMPOSTER police officer to come in and tear it down. Sadly, we are not building our own family and community as we need because we are clouded with superficial success. We are influence by what others do and believe if you can't beat them join them.We have to love who we are more and we must stop killing, stealing, and violating one another or anyone.Developing common interests and make decisions that are in the best interest of our family and community and understand the importance of togetherness for the family and the community.
    This issue is so DEEP rooted. Lebron has a responsibility to build his family and the community he came from as well as his present community the celebrities he is around and society.I believe he is doing his part hopefully he improves as he grows to understand what more he can do but he does not have to carry that cross alone in this situation.

  10. OF course we need to do better in our communities, but damn, that wasn't the question. He went straight to the same old rhetoric white folks keep saying "Ohh the fatherless homes, and clean up your blah blah blah blah blahh" As IF that will STOP the Murders from COPS in specific. To me, it is a distraction and part of the problem to constantly try to slick in b on b crimes when talking about police brutality, damn nearly saying, "Until we stop the killings in our community, don't expect the cops to stop killing y'all too".. Well, why were we being killed before we were integrated and there was no b on b crime to blame? Why aren't white folks who tend to take more than one life at a time in their own homes, their own communities ( and others) not being killed by cops at the same rate? Deep sigh. I am resigned to think, with all of these excuses, some black folks don't see an end to it ever and it's business as usual afterwards and some white folks just don't intend on ending it ever as it has become the greatest sport/hunting game they've ever invented…and it's business as usual, because negro death is business….. as usual.

  11. Brown is as realistic as Common. The condition of black people in this country is not just because black people are bad parents. Ghettos don't exist because of black people.

  12. Chloe Gordon says:

    All the people need to stop buying the things they don't need boycott

  13. THR REPSONSIBILITY LIES WITHIN US AND NOBODY ELSE NO MIKE J OR LEBRON OR OPRAH NONE OF THEM BLSCKS NEED TO STOP BEING LAZY,MAKING EXCUSES WHILE EVERYTHING LIES WITHIN THEM OR US STOP POINTING FINGERS AND GET OFF YOUR BLASCK ASSSSSSES AND MALKE SHIT HAPPEN….YOU WILL RUN TO A SALE FAST AS FUCK,YOU WHIRE OUT OVER BLACK FRIDAY BUT YOU POINT FINGERS…THERE LIES THE PROBLEM..

  14. WHAT JUST HAPPENED? I'M LOST! CLEANING UP THE COMMUNITY WILL IN NO WAYS STOP POLICE BRUTALITY! THE ONLY THING THAT WILL DETER THAT BEHAVIOR IS "HOLDING THESE OFFICERS RESPONSIBLE"

  15. I agree with Myron Johnson. Most Blacks, I know, aren't going to put their jobs in jeporady, but with talk about what somebody else should do. Besides, I thinks it's a wrong move. There's strength in numbers. If there's to be protest, let the whole team or NBA or NFL protest. Why just put it one man? Be effective! Stand up as a group, if you want to get change.

  16. Kara Poole says:

    So basically, "yes, they have been killing us for years…..I use to protest against that……BUT we need to just focus on us. If we do better then we'll see some change".

    Question? Do you think if we CONTINUE to counter the symptoms of white supremacy and the effects that it have in our communities and homes that they will some how find a way to be civil and human?? Well, when we pull up proof of our history and civilization prior to invasion from "parasitic conquerors" we find civilations that were thriving under its own soveriegnty. We had communities….well nations that were running fine like Jim Brown is suggesting. We had networks of strong familes that last for hundreds of thousands of years…..and that did not stop the "parasitic conquerors" from imposing and destroying it…..that did not "make everything just fine".

    Extra Point: And today, we look at the lineage of the strong African nations scattered throughout colonial land that act nothing like the civilizations we came from….and seem to overlook what caused this self destruction that we have now. Stop losing focus………

    It's time we give them something to ponder— cut them loose: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfnruW7yERA&feature=youtu.be

  18. Tony Harris says:

    If you have a problem with what Jim said, you are a part of the problem…this man has fought the fight for years, and understands this issue fully…nothing wrong with saying "Hey Black Man, stop acting like your shit don't stink"…what he's talking about is taking personal responsibility…We can hold them accountable, and ourselves accountable…I'm the first to speak out about injustice done to our people, but what about when it comes from our own?!

  19. Well said. I remember Jim Brown from when our mailman in Columbus GA was so proud of his son-in-law, the famous football player and soon he stopped bragging. His first wife Suzie grew up with my aunt and she hated him for ruining her friend's life. I hadn't realized that Jim Brown grew up to be such an honorable man.

  20. Black people stop looking toward athlete's and entertainers for leadership!!! Don't put the on Lebron!! He 's doing his part. Where are the people!! They should be in the streets!!! Where are the politician that the people voted for? Where the pastors at…. Where's the naacp, where's the rappers, …. It's more of us than one Lebon

  21. I disagree with Brown. Firstly, where is his proof that black men don't step up to their parental responsibilities, second, I believe it's a a question of all men not just black men. It appears that Brown has fallen into that racialized abyss.

  22. Its not LaBron James place to be forced to speak out. Why don't they ask Michael Jordon.He never spoke out for any black cause. James is sending so many black kids to college each year. Hundreds of kids from Ohio. I thik that's commendable for LeBron James.

  23. Stella Knight I AGREE, HOWEVER, IT IS EVERYONES JOB TO SPEAK OUT AGAINXT POLICE BRUTALITY AND THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM'S REFUSAL TO CURB THIS BEHAVIOR BY HOLDING LAWENFORCEMENT ACCOUNTABLE.
