Colin Kaepernick explains why he believes he gets criticized

colin kaepernickChris Simms of Bleacher report believes Colin Kaepernick gets criticized more than she should and he at down with the 49ers star quarterback and asked why he believes that’s that case.

“Stereotypes, prejudice,” Kaepernick said. “Whatever you want to call it. I think between the tattoos, the way I dress, the way I talk. People don’t think it should go together with a franchise quarterback or something that’s leading the team or representing the organization.”

“I think it’s a great deal for both sides,” Kaepernick told Simms, per PFT.  “The NFL is a performance-based business.  So you should have to perform to earn some of your money.  At the same time, I realize that my success isn’t because of just what I do out there.  I have great teammates around me that make plays, and I want to continue to have good teammates around me, so the contract allows the organization to keep those players.”

I find it funny that Simm is making this into a big deal, when only maybe a few people have have said ignorant things about Kaepernick.
