Charlotte Newspaper Criticizes Cam Newton For Wedlock
Cam Newton has been scrutinized his whole career, going all the way back to his college days. Even with his team going 15-1 and Cam on the way to winning the MVP of the league. That hasn’t stopped (WHITE) people from finding silly things to complain about. First, there was the lady who got mad at his “pelvic thrusts” from when he was dabbing. Now, things are getting more out of hand as a Charlotte newspaper had a letters page wondering if Cam Newton was a bad influence for having a child without being married.
Here are some of the letters:
So the man whom we celebrate, and with good reason, has produced a son. Congratulations would be in order if he had been man enough to marry the mother of his child and make a home. This happy occasion is blighted when Cam, whose own parents were married, skips the very basis of being a good parent.
I am just very sorry and very disappointed.

It is amazing that the birth of Cam Newton’s son by his girlfriend is a front-page story. The U.S. is seeing a rise in unmarried births and for the media to flash this as the greatest happening for Cam Newton is contrary to today’s family principles.
Cam is a role model to many of our young males, both white and black. The least that he and his longtime girlfriend could have done is to get married prior to giving birth to show his followers that not only is he a superstar, but also a person with high morals.

But look at these people who wrote the letters:
Anyway, it’s crazy that people wrote these letters. But it’s even crazier that the Charlotte Observer decided to publish them. Crazy. Anyway, the reactions are worth it.
