    I guess ppl have yet to notice the barracdes and heavy police presence in the suburbs and other areas with high property values during times of social unrest

    On being under more scrutiny and criticism because he's a black quarterback:

    "It's not racism," Newton told GQ. "Everybody's entitled to their own opinion."

    "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."

    On hot button issues such as Trump, McRory, HB2, etc.:

    "I love people too much to care about those type of things."

    "I'll let you be the judge. I don't look at it like that," he told GQ. "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."

    His only direct remark about race was in relation to his football critics.

    As far as hot button issues, he said he lets people form their own opinions about what's going on.

    So what's the problem? Y'all got to stop expecting these black athletes and entertainers to be activists. Nobody expects Brady, Manning, Rodgers, etc. to speak on any serious issue, which is exactly Cam's point. He wants to be a great quarterback, not just a black quarterback. The only reason he's asked these questions is because he's black, which I don't think is fair.

    He does say though that he has his own beliefs and opinions, so it's not like he's oblivious to what's going on.

    It's just kind of jarring and somewhat disappointing because Cam hasn't really shied away from talking about race in the past

    Before the Super Bowl last yr he suggested his race scares somes ppl, fans leading to what I believe where some constructive discussions of race in sports

    But now, according to him, race doesn't play a factor when people critique him. We're beyond that. Opinions change, but that's a big turn around. He just comes off as naive at best, disingenuous at worst

    I can understand him not wanting to use his race as a crutch, but he could have easily had said "for some critics and fans the way I play the game bothers them in great part because of the color my skin unfortunately"

    More than likely he is trying not to rock the boat and appease everyone, specially the majority of white fans and reporters

    So much to be said about this. Smh, dirty. Sad to see some crap like this. I don't know if that lady is married, boyfriend, etc.. but that's some Samuel L Jackson, hiding in the court type stuff. Where the feminist organizations at to do what they do behind this issue? That's gonna set a standard too. I bet more cops gonna follow....

    Where the feminist organizations at to do what they do behind this issue?

    Fair question

    From my observations blk feminist are the loudest voices speaking out against police violence against blk women. ... But despite their efforts these stories don't get the same attention from others because they don't fit neatly into the familiar narrative

    Which brings me to my question, what do you plan to do to help make sure that these stories are brought to the forefront and the actions of the officer are not ignored? You are a blk man right?

    You act like every story where a black man gets publicized. We shouldn't be quibbling about who brings this up or stands up for it. But that's what happens when you have special interest groups within groups. All black people should speak out against injustice against any black person.

    Not tryna quibble

    And ur right, black people should speak out against injustice against any black person

    Sadly that doesn't happen due to homophobia, misogny, selfishness, etc

    That's why these special interest groups spring up

    But I digress

    inb4 some halfwit starts rambling nonsense about feminism, george soros and obama.

    But those are very true. How can you not take into account those things?

    george soros is not bank rolling blm

    it was just a rumor that started on conservative blogs because he and hilary clinton share strong ties

    plus there is no way to directly fund an amorphous movement like blm, even if he wanted to

    not even going to address the rest
