Former Cleveland Browns star Jim Brown slammed the black community during a Tuesday interview with Fox Sports commentator Jason Whitlock.

Brown, who is widely considered the greatest running back in NFL history, made an apparence on the show “The Herd” to discuss many topics including violence in the black community and the decision not to indict the police officer who shot Tamir Rice.

Brown said the following:

I could talk for 10 hours on police brutality through the years historically against African-American people, but then there are other people that have had problems with the police. The problem that I’m looking at, Jason, is young, black men terrorizing their own community. My thought of all of this, how it should be cleared up is to have the community take pride in itself, clean it up, be the cleanest community in the world. Fathers do the right things with their kids and their wives, and I think we’ll see a tremendous change.


Whitlock has also strayed into the political arena occasionally. Earlier in the year he called the protests at the University of Missouri “bullshit” that was built on lies. (RELATED: Black Sports Writer Calls The Missouri Protests ‘Bullsh*t’)
