Cam Newton Responds To The Critics, Claims Race Is A Factor

I’m sure by now everyone knows that many people (even ones that are reading this right now) don’t like Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton for all kind of reasons. They don’t appreciate his dancing, his celebrations, his way of life. But the answer to why people don’t like Cam Newton could be bigger than football.

During the Panthers first press conference as the preparation for Super Bowl 50 starts, Cam was asked why he thinks people don’t like him and his response is well, sadly, accurate:

“I think it’s a trick question,” he said, “because if I answer truthfully, it’s going to be, ‘Oh, he’s this, that…’ But I’m going to say it anyway. I don’t think people have seen what I am or what I’m trying to do, and I said that prior to me being in this situation. But when I said it then, ‘Oh, he’s immature, he’s young, he’s this, that, and the third.’ I felt a certain type of way then, I feel the same type of way now. The only thing that has changed is that we’re winning. I said since day one, I’m an African-American quarterback that may scare a lot of people because they haven’t seen nothing that they can compare me to.”

As Super Bowl week continues to near, you’ll hear more and more of what people think about Cam Newton, so get ready for some hot takes.

Here’s the full video of Cam’s press conference

  1. maybe if cam showed some respect to other teams/fans/players, he would not feel this way . I do not think he understands this is not about race, because Russell Wilson and j Winston are loved by many, nothing said about them guys. no other quarterback makes pretend he is sleeping in front of a defense while they are warming up before a game (cam in front of cardinals last week) , no other qb rips jerseys from the stands and stomps on them , no other qb dances, flashes, makes disrespectful gestures , just to mention a few things he does many other irritating things that he is attributing to race. it is not race ! cam is a disrespectful a hole , what is he going to do in the super bowl hand peyton manning a cane or papa johns pizza??? c’mon man this guy has to grow up

      • If cam newton would take your advice and stay quiet it would take him places too. Respect! stated a lot of facts. Cam Newton is very talented but he is also disrespectful to his staff and opponents along with their fans. After he scored a touchdown vs Arizona one white staff member is standing right in front of him trying to give him a high five and instead he bumps him out of the way. C’mon man

  2. Of course Cam is right. All those white people are fine with Johnny Manziel and make excuses for him. Imagine if Cam was Manziel! Those same white people would be losing their minds. ITs those racists that say its not a race thing, but it clearly is for them. They say things like “show respect” but they never say that about Johnny or any other white players. Only to black players.

    Whites want blacks to bow down to them, even stupid loser poor white fans.

      • YOU. But most people that look like you are racist, flat out. There is no denying it. We see it, we all know it, and anyone who dies it is either an idiot or a racist too. White people are the biggest racists on this planet. They are so jealous of someone like Cam and will hate their butts off.

    • You clearly don’t know what your talking about, Manziel has been suspended for his actions and scrutinized plenty. I would like to hear facts, if you have any, on what comparable things other players have done that would show Cam is being disrespected because of his race.

  3. I like to watch Cam Newton play. I think he is an incredibily gifted athlete.. The however is as follows . A friend of mine wrote this and I agree with it.

    Dear Cam,
    Don’t play the race card. People are not scared because of your skin color, they just think the antics are stupid and classless. Act like a confident adult with a modicum of restraint and the respect will come naturally.

    Respectfully,
    What your parents should have taught you!

    • Shut the fuck up Cindy. Its you white people who play the race card and hate on black people. Cam has done nothing wrong at all this year yet people hate on him. They wont do the same to Rodgers for discount double check, but they will to Cam. Call him a show boat just because he is black. You white people make me sick.

  4. You bet it some factor’s, you moran colored! He wont win MVP becuase he a colored, point blank!! I hope it Tony Romo or Tim tebow. They both done great thing’s AND theyre good fine Christian boy’s!

  5. I was going to skip the Superbowl because I was interested in neither
    team..Now I have someone to root against. Go 5-head manning and Denver
    Bronco’s !
