Former NFL player Jack Brewer has slammed Colin Kaepernick for comparing a football draft to slavery, saying ‘he has an evil, anti-American spirit’ and that his Netflix special should be ‘illegal’. 

In his documentary Colin in Black & White, Kaepernick likened the NFL’s player selection meeting to slavery, with one scene showing players being paraded in front of coaches and scouts before they’re seen in shackles on an auction block.

Fellow footballer Brewer – who played for the Minnesota Vikings, the New York Giants, the Philadelphia Eagles, and the Arizona Cardinals – said Kaepernick’s comments were harmful to minorities.

‘This new Colin Kaepernick doctrine that’s penetrating the minds and hearts of so many of our underserved black kids is the single largest threat to black men in the United States of America,’ Brewer told Fox News. 

‘Because right now, folks are thinking that they’re victims are living in the most prosperous the most opportunity [sic] in any country in the world.’

Kaepernick – who earned an average annual salary of $19 million – became a controversial figure in the NFL in 2016, when he started kneeling during the playing of the US national anthem to protest police brutality and racial injustice while playing for the San Francisco 49ers.

‘Before they put you on the field, teams poke, prod, and examine you searching for any defect that might affect your performance,’ Kaepernick says of NFL owners and coaches while walking through a staged NFL practice field.

‘No boundary respect,’ Kaepernick continued. ‘No dignity left intact.’

Then a line of NFL prospects, all of them black and who are played by paid actors, walk by Kaepernick before altering into slaves for sale at an auction with shackles on while white slave owners examine and place bids on them.

He said during a Fox News interview that 'it's sick and disgusting or think that even Netflix - someone that big and popular - would even put something out like that'

Brewer – a staunch supporter of former president Donald Trump – said he found the analogy harmful to ‘vulnerable’ black children.

He added that many of those kids don’t have father figures and are behind on reading and math proficiency.

Brewer said Kaepernick ought to instead be promoting positivity to impressionable children.

‘He doesn’t have that spirit in him. He has an evil anti-American spirit. And it’s sick and disgusting or think that even Netflix – someone that big and popular – would even put something out like that to penetrate the mind of these.

Another user went as far as calling Kaepernick an imbecile in his post:

‘Colin Kaepernick compares the NFL combine, which allows all players of all races a voluntary chance to become multi-millionaires, to slavery,’ Outkick.com writer Clay Travis wrote.
