Will Chip Kelly racism sustain a winning team?

The Philadelphia Eagles continue to operate under the cloud of Chip Kelly racism. Since the football team has sustained one win it appears that the allegations of racism have subsided. Chip Kelly racism will never sustain a winning team due to the division that continues to permeate on the team.

Chip Kelly racism began with the trade of several high talented Black football stars. It has been noted that the Philadelphia Eagles had one of the Whitest teams in football for the 2014 season. It appears that the 2015 Philadelphia Eagle team will remain one of the Whitest teams in the NFL with twenty-one White football players. This is an increase from the previous year.

In 2014, the Philadelphia Eagles finished 2nd in the NFC East Division, they were third in the NFL for total points scored (474 points). They were 22nd in the NFL for points allowed (400 points). It will be difficult for the Philadelphia Eagles to either maintain or increase with the looming Chip Kelly racism that has impacted the culture of the football team.

Why will Chip Kelly racism have a devastating impact on the Philadelphia Eagles 2015 season?

One way that Chip Kelly racism will impact the Philadelphia Eagles is talent wise. The organization itself will make more money because they are not delving out as much money as the previous years. With the removal of prominent Black players, the player payroll will have a significant decrease. With that significant financial decrease there will also be a significant decrease in talent.

“In this world, you get what you pay for (Kurt Vonnegut).” The Philadelphia Eagles in their effort to validate Chip Kelly racism have opted to employ subpar players. Subpar players will provide subpar results. This became very evident during the first Dallas Cowboys game. With wide receiver Dez Bryant not suiting up for the game and Tony Romo getting hurt during their game, the Philadelphia Eagles managed to lose the game that they should have won.

Chip Kelly racism will impact the player attitudes. Racism has an impact on job satisfaction, motivation, commitment, loyalty, and future recruitment. Racism impacts job satisfaction because when a player continues to see player such as Riley Cooper get rewarded for his racism they are less likely to perform at an optimum level. Players are less likely to be loyal and once they have established themselves and have an opportunity to leave the organization they will take their talented services to another football team. This action will become prominent because they will feel that there is no future with the Philadelphia Eagles that resulted from Chip Kelly racism. This is evident by trading some of the most talented Black players in the organization.

How can the Philadelphia Eagles render the effects of Chip Kelly racism ineffective?

One alternative for the Philadelphia Eagles is to fire the coach. The coach is responsible for player control as well as developing the game plan. The coach is responsible for player preparation too.

Another alternative is to continue the pattern of Chip Kelly racism that is now prominent with the Philadelphia Eagles. As long as the team wins, fans will endorse the efforts of Chip Kelly racism. But when they begin to lose, then the fans, the news, and the public will want Chip Kelly and his staff hung.

A final alternative is to use Chip Kelly racism as an opportunity for the Philadelphia Eagles to grow together. Several Black players on the team have voiced their support for the coach. It appears that this sentiment may be reserved for a few of the Black players. The other Black players may appreciate the opportunity that has been afforded to them but cannot wait until another opportunity presents itself for them to leave. They may become some of the most productive players in the league but the may never feel that they trust the coach because of the racial allegations.

The Philadelphia Eagles can overcome the adverse effects associated with Chip Kelly racism by promoting positive racial relationships.

About Classroom Racism Exterminator

Racism is a menace and so we’ve been taught for ages which is the primary need for a diversity expert. However, even in this modern society of today where we see a lot of colored celebrities performing on stage with huge fan followings and of course an Afro-America President for the USA, we are still in a phase where racism exists in all its brutal glory and has been eating away at the society like a plague. Classrooms, are one of the most affected areas where color differences and racism exists to its extremes. Even after decades of progress and a lot of communal efforts at bridging the gaps between colored students, white students and teachers, it is sad to say that the disparities still exist and are just as pronounced today as they were back in the 1950s. Colored students, even in the likes of New York City, are attending under resourced schools or have been significantly isolated and made to be unequal in regular schools. Even if the teachers are well-intentioned, perpetuating the structural racism that has taken deep roots into the fabric of our education system is a tough task and make the need for a diversity expert imperative. Teachers need to recognize the biases that exist within the classroom and also take conscious measures to address them and their own biases of course. James Baldwin once said, “it is your very own responsibility to change this society, if you think of yourself as an educated person.” Dr. Derrick L. Campbell took this quote very effectively and straight to the heart and thus this Classroom Racism Exterminator happened. Classroom Racism Exterminator is an initiative that will teach you about your duty and moral obligation towards eliminating racism from the classrooms. This is where and how you will learn about what you need to do to produce a better society that is free of biases and disparities amongst the blacks and the whites. Because we understand how classroom biases and conversations about racism are difficult and how teachers and students almost avoid the topics altogether, we have put together a range of effective methods and products to help address the problem at hand and talk meaningfully to counter issues related to race and racism in the classroom. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell understands that it takes a lot of courage to talk about race and racism and that racial issues need to be viewed through a very critical lens that can understand and attend to the pertaining aspects of racism in the classroom. And therefore through this website we have made a conscious effort to eliminate racism from the classroom and make the educational system equal and beneficial for all. We know and we understand that there are no words that can actually describe how racism feels. There are cases and everybody tends to deal with it in their own manner. Some might lash out verbally or others might just withdraw into shells. Whatever the case, people don’t talk about it openly and teachers don’t really make a conscious effort at addressing the issue. We don’t really know if our children or if the youth is learning to be educated or become racists in their classroom. Our program is focused on helping children of color and regardless of their race, their full potential. We want every student to be able to recognize and reach their full potential so that they think of themselves as responsible citizens of their country and not regard themselves as worthless human beings. Here you will find motivational books and flash card games, all of which have been designed focusing on eliminating racism completely from our classrooms. The books and the games have been consciously designed keeping in mind the American society and educational system. It is a small effort on our and Dr. Campbell’s part to help this society become a better place to live in. A little about diversity expert Dr. Campbell Dr. Derrick L. Campbell the driving force behind Classroom Racism Exterminator is a dynamic figure and a constant source of motivation for us. He has a Bachelors of Science in Electronics Engineering Technology, Math Education, a Masters in Education Administration and also holds a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership. Dr. Campbell is a well known personality throughout the nation. He has lectured at various events including the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), Iron Sharpens Iron Men’s Conference and a lot of local churches. He is a personality well dedicated towards eliminating the plague of racism from our classrooms and helping every child recognize his/her true potential not the color of their skin. He realizes how a child would feel if he/she was made to think they are worthless human beings. Diversity expert Dr. Campbell is compassionate and related to the experiences and therefore this initiative is a constant and continual effort to eliminate racism manifested in us, completely from the classroom and from our society.

One Response to Will Chip Kelly racism sustain a winning team?

  1. Bad Wolf says:

    I apologize, but I was born white. I live in the Phila. area, so I root for the home team. But the Eagles should have released Riley Cooper when he used racist language. Most Eagles fans were upset when Kelly got rid of D. Jack, Mac, and Shady. We haven’t had a real QB since McNabb, though Vick was better than anyone else we’ve had since we got rid of McNabb. So, what I’m trying to say is that I agree with you completely.
