Cam Newton’s politically correct response to Colin Kaepernick’s on-field activism is not sitting well with folks on Twitter. Cam was asked about his peer’s decisions to sit for the National Anthem during football games and offered up this response to ESPN:
“You know, a lot of scrutiny happens when athletes start talking about, you know, race, but the truth of the matter is we gotta do right by each other. No matter what color we are … Who am I to say, ‘Colin, you’re wrong?’ And who am I to say, ‘Bro, you’re right?’ Because we all, you know, we all have the right to think whatever we wanna think. And I respect that by everybody,” Cam said.
Colin has refused to stand during the National Anthem for the San Francisco 49ers’ past three pre-season football games. The quarterback says he’s refusing to stand because he doesn’t believe he should celebrate a country that oppresses people of color. The bold move has been lauded by many and slammed by others.
Cam’s take has managed to be as divisive, pacifying those who believe racism doesn’t exist and infuriating those who recognize the problem. Some of those folks took to Twitter to bash Cam over his words, with many leaning on comic relief as a way of dealing with their disappointment in the dabbing athlete.

No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
