Cam Newton sat down with ESPN this week and talked about the Colin Kaepernick situation. Well, at least he talked about talking about the Colin Kaepernick situation. As usual, Cam Newton shared no real thoughts on any sort of issue, echoing the content of his GQ interview this summer.
Newton and Kaepernick are both black quarterbacks who come from the 2011 draft class. Newton has been a lightning rod of controversy for the dumbest things. He even has his own National Anthem controversy! But while Kaepernick wants to see change, give money, and answer questions – even if he doesn’t have the best answers – Newton continues to be vague and pretend that race issues are just insanity that should disappear. People get offended by Cam Newton and Cam Newton continues to talk like there’s no way this could be related to race. Via GQ:
