contrary to popular and STUPID belief, brown does not describe those of middle eastern or hispanic descent. those of hispanic descent have their own color - latino, and most middle easterns are of their own color - arab, so arab and brown are not the same ethnic group!
brown people are generally made up of south asians (indians, bengalis, nepal, sri lanka, etc..) and also some of south america, like guyana
"Yo Omar my brown homie lets go and chill at the mall buddy!"
"For the last time you idiot I'm not brown im Arab and PROUD! You wanna hang out with a brown guy so much, go talk to Russell Peters!"

One of the most storied franchises in history of the NFL, the Cleveland Browns won 4 NFL Championships before the championship game became the Super Bowl. Jim Brown, possibly the greatest football player of all time, wore the orange and brown his entire career. Despite Art Modell moving the team to Baltimore in 1995, the NFL compensated Cleveland by giving them a new expansion franchise in 1999. Cleveland Browns fans are some of the most dedicated and die-hard individuals on the planet and wait longingly for the day the Browns return to glory.
The Browns are going to win the Superbowl this year.

A color associated with waste matter. More typical, association of a stain that can be traced back to poor personal hygiene. Many times, one would use the term brown or in the plural sense, browns, as describing a poorly performing professional football team.
Bill: Whoa! I'll never do your laundry again as I spied brown stains in your underpants!

Frank: I know, funny isn't it, sort of reminds you of the Cleveland Browns. Did my underwear smell as bad as the Browns play?

Bill: No, not that bad.

Occurs when supervisory personnel intentionally undermine their staff through nefarious means.
Cathy browns her staff when she intentionally lies to and about the staff; demands increased performance of her staff while refusing to provide the tools and training necessary for them to meet the new performance standards; requires a member of her staff to assume supervisory capacity then refuses to acknowledge, reward and/or compensate that staff member for a job well done; forbids and prevents a staff member from working from home only to then beg that staff member to work from home on a project requiring immediate attention; surreptitiously and without approval accesses and reads her staff's emails; without further compensation, reduces by a week a staff member's accrued vacation hours to lessen the impact on her scheduling needs; bullies her staff into into 'doing as told' then denies having provided said direction...
