has baller wolf for the carolina panthers,
been turned out?
i’m starting to believe so.
i should have known by some of his outfit choices.
so in a recent interview with gq for the september issue,
cam thinks we are past racism.
as a nation,
this is what he had to say via espn…
In a wide-ranging interview with GQ, Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton told the magazine he doesn’t think he is subjected to extra scrutiny because he is black.
“It’s not racism,” Newton told GQ. “Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion.”
Newton has been critiqued for his playing style and demeanor on and off the field throughout his five seasons in the NFL, and some have pointed to Newton’s race as part of the reason he receives such criticism.
The quarterback, however, dismissed that idea to GQ.
“I don’t want this to be about race, because it’s not. It’s not,” Newton said. “Like, we’re beyond that. As a nation.”
Before Super Bowl 50, Newton created headlines when he described himself as “an African-American quarterback that may scare a lot of people because they haven’t seen nothing they can compare me to.” He later eased off those comments in the run-up to his first Super Bowl appearance, when he became the sixth black quarterback to start the NFL’s title game.
“I don’t even want to touch the topic of black quarterback, because I think this game is bigger than black, white or green,” Newton said in February before the game. “I think we limit ourselves when we just label ourselves just black, this, that and the third. I wanted to bring awareness because of that, but yet I don’t think I should be labeled just a black quarterback, because it’s bigger things in this sport that need to be accomplished.”
Asked by GQ about other hot-button national issues, Newton said he doesn’t have an opinion on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and wouldn’t say whether he voted for North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory.
“I love people too much to care about those type of things,” Newton told GQ.
i’m starting to think that some of the blacks in the industry are brainwashed.
they say the stupidest shit to get let in the door.
it’s like hazing for a fraternity.
they become “new blacks” to get more money and fame.
i hope his negro wake up call isn’t a tough one.
he is so handsome too.
lowkey: i do like that coat on the cover tho.
the outfits they styled him for the magazine as well…
it looks like fall is about superheros and comic characters.
i’m going to love this…
