Chip Kelly smashes reporters trying to criticize Colin Kaepernick

colin-kaepernick-time-magazine-1474571784-600x800Colin Kaepernick has been getting crushed by the media for his stance against the injustice in America, but his point is slowly being proved.  Unarmed men are still being killed by Police and now his head coach is even sticking up for him.

I know you’ve said in the past that he certainly has the right to do it. But, what are your feelings about how this has really just taken off nationally?

“Well, I think it’s an issue. You look at what’s gone on in Tulsa and Charlotte in the last two nights; it’s an issue that’s at the forefront of our country in that it needs to be addressed, it needs to be taken care of because what’s going on is not right. I think, again, he’s shedding light on a situation that is heinous and shouldn’t happen in this country. We all have inalienable rights as a citizen of this country and they’re being violated and that’s what I think Colin is standing up for.”

How has he done budgeting his time? He’s kind of been a model—?

“Again, a question for him about modeling his time. When he’s here, he’s doing football and when we’re here from 8:15 when we get here in the morning, until 5:00 when we leave, he’s at every meeting, he’s done everything, there hasn’t been anything, ‘Hey, coach I need time because I’ve got this going on.’ He hasn’t done that. He understands what his job is and he’s balanced it really well and I think he’s managed it really well. He’s focused. He’s dialed in when we’re at practice. He’s dialed in when we’re in meetings.”

How do you feel when he takes over the locker room and he talks about his concerns, which are valid and important? I think specifically about after the Rams win, when you beat the Rams, and he was talking about injustice in America and I believe some of the players were uncomfortable with that. How do you feel when he takes over the room?

“I don’t think Colin takes over any room. I think it’s–“

Oh he did after the Rams game.

“I can give you my opinion of what I think. I think he’s asked questions about a subject and he’s answering those questions.”

He should turn down. He should say, ‘Talk to me at another time.’ I was in the room. Were you in the room at that time?

“Yeah, I walked by in the locker room. I’m in the locker room.”

Anyways, so we disagree on if he took over the room. Do you think it’s appropriate that he should be talking about those things after a win?

“Yeah, I do. When he’s asked a question, I think he should answer what his feelings are on those questions. If you don’t believe that’s a thing then maybe you shouldn’t ask him those questions.”
