Facts About Cam Newton & The Black Quarterback
Unity Consciousness #578


These are just some of the facts:
1. Cam felt compelled to speak to the issue of not labeling him in a way other quarterbacks are not subjected to.
2. This is not the first time this topic has come up in the NFL. It comes up every time there is a Black quarterback in the Super Bowl or who is doing well or poorly or often anytime a Black quarterback plays a game in the NFL.
3. Cam Newton has faced this before somewhere in his career. This is a certainty. How can it be about racism in America for Cam in general as a Black person and not be about racism in Sports for Cam?
4. Cam Newton has faced this as a Black Student, a Black Male, etc. This is why he felt compelled. Black people face this everyday in all aspects of life, including President Barack Obama. How can it not be about race for Cam when it's about race for the President. The same people who have made it about race for the President has made it about race for the Black Quarterback.
5. “Race” as a color, is attributed to Blacks more as an anomaly, than the worldwide norm it is.
6. Hell yeah it's about race because it's about racism. This point speaks to all other points.
7. The NFL, the players, coaches, organizations, owners, fans, media, and the rest of the general public are still stuck on the stupidity of racism as a way of life. America was founded on racism and still runs on racism. Without racism and other inequalities, America could not exist.
8. In all of America's major institutions, race is a category that is tracked and it is not for the benefit of Blacks. If it was not about race, these things would not occur and would not be tracked to the Nth degree.
9. Cam Newton did not “bring up” the issue of race. Whites do every day in every way. It's ingrained in the society. Its in our faces even as Blackness is in every person's veins alive today. Far too many people, Blacks and Whites are in denial about the prevalence and perversity of racism, but everyone feels racism and everyone knows racism and everyone sees the results of racism. Oh say can you see? You have to be clueless not to.
10. It is quite ridiculous to think most Black people just make up shit White folks do. To suggest racism is a myth that only exists when Blacks bring it up is part of the constant attempt to malign the Black mind as paranoid and lesser than the "honest saneness" of the White mind. It is also an attempt to make people afraid to bring up the subject of racism (speak truth to reality).
11. It is quite ridiculous to ignore the real everyday shit established as acceptable in this country as it pertains to “race.”
12. It is idiotic to suggest a public opinion poll is evidence against racism when the poll itself and the denial of most respondents are evidences of racism's psychological warfare through miseducation that has made people crazy sick. Let's get some keeping it real poll questions, some keeping it real pollsters and some keeping it real respondents so we can at least admit to our unhealthiness.
11. It is a false deceptive notion (a bold-faced lie) that we are anywhere near issues of Blacks and Whites beings exceptions rather than the rule of law and rule of behavior in America and elsewhere. We are not making progress.
12. Cam Newton said he was proud to be African-American. To be young, gifted and Black, that's where it's at.
13. Black and Proud is a lethal combination against the status quo. Add to that, being powerful, the best, and doing it your way and taking over “their game” and every opportunity to malign you will be taken in addition to the general malignment bestowed upon Blacks in general from birth since the colonization of history and information.
14. What world of lies must people live in to suggest football or sports** are past racism's wretchedness and that this is a post-racist society? Lebron James got race lambasted when he took his talents to Miami. This despite all the love they had for him, they never saw past race and got past race. The problem Lebron and Cam face is still the problem we face.
14. No one has mentioned the Whiteness of Peyton Manning or Tom Brady or the ethnicity of the Bronco's coach. Have they?
15. Most things are in reverse and are reversing.
16. Nothing said here should be taken into a vacuum of thought. Plenty more has been said about race, racism, Blacks, Whites, history, genetics, family tree, etc. that must be taken into consideration to understand this particular message more comprehensively. All these things speak to the facts about Cam Newton, Blacks, Whites and The Black Quarterback.

**Trent Dilfer has made it a point to give Cam Newton props for being both intelligent and athletic.
In Tennis, Chris Everett and a few other commentators have acknowledged Serena's career greatness on the court on the basis of her talent. They speak of her as the greatest over and above themselves and others who have been historically the epitome of the sport. We shall see if these sprinkles and trickles translate into more and more humans becoming human beings such that racism's long and deep reach is a memory rather than a currency.
And yes, there are a few, relatively speaking, who do the conscience thing, to some degree, but these actions are more than offset by those who do not abide by the calling of the higher authority. This is why the actions of the few should never be held up as summary evidence of making progress when the actions of the many continue to take away exceedingly more and impact billions, trillions and more. In other words, trying to say race is not an issue for America in regards to Cam Newton and Black Quarterbacks is a silly attempt to use the case of Cam to deny the claim of all the rest of us Blacks worldwide. This continues to confirm every case and must be addressed as the shape-shifting of racist nations continues to try to reimage itself into something better without becoming something better. No we are not better off. We have simply shifted in the ways we are worse off. We have also lost more of what made us better off when we knew we were worse off. And that, simply put, is collective identity and all that fundamentally comes with it.
