Cam Newton Says America Is Beyond Racism And All Hell Breaks Loose

Remember when Cam Newton was constantly being blasted by the white media and fans for his innocent antics while on the field?

The QB was called everything from a “thug” to the “N-word” for just being Black and leading a NFL team.

Sadly, Cam Newton has completely disassociated himself from the plight of his own community in the recent cover story for GQ Magzine, and now claims race has nothing do with how he’s perceived according to NBC Sports:

Unlike some of the other quarterbacks at the top of that list, Newton is African-American and that has led to some questions about whether race is a factor in some of the criticism he has received. It was something bandied about heading into the Super Bowl with Newton sharing his opinion that “an African-American quarterback that may scare a lot of people because they haven’t seen nothing that they can compare me to.”

That doesn’t mean Newton believes that his critics are fueled by racism, however. In an interview with Zach Baron for GQ, Newton said he didn’t agree with former teammate Josh Norman and backup Derek Anderson when they asserted race was the motivating factor.

“It’s not racism. Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion,” Newton said. “I’ll let you be the judge. I don’t look at it like that. I look at it like some people have certain beliefs, and I have my own belief, and we can agree to disagree on certain things. But this is what makes sports so amazing, that we can start a discussion around a table, in the newspaper, in the magazines, that will get people’s attention. And that’s what sports does. … I don’t want this to be.
