Jason Whitlock: “Last week, Cam Newton appeared as a guest on NFL insider Josina Anderson’s podcast, and provided Newton a platform to argue that his NFL unemployment is directly tied to his hair style… Cam is complaining that he’s hearing ‘whispers’ that NFL coaches and executives ‘want that 2015 Cam Newton’… So who was the 2015 Cam Newton? Ohhh, that was the Cam Newton that was the MVP and played in the Super Bowl. Imagine NFL teams wanting THAT version of Cam Newton back? How racist and unfair! Cam should file a lawsuit claiming NFL owners aren’t obeying the ‘C.R.O.W.N. Act’, the ridiculous California law that prohibits discrimination based on hair style and texture. The law is a bone the Democratic Party has thrown Black women because they know hair style is a critical issue for Black women voters. Some people tie their votes to taxes, immigration policy, abortion… Democrats believe Black women vote based on hair style options. Cam Newton thinks like a woman. He told Josina Anderson ‘my hair is deeply rooted in my culture, and the people who look like me.’ I’m not sure how to describe Newton’s hair style. He wears dreadlocks that are shaped into spikes that stand straight up; he looks like a clown. He occasionally covers his hair with a Mary Poppins style bonnet. What ‘culture’ is Cam reflecting? Who originated this culture? Kunta Kinte? Frederick Douglass? Booker T. Washington? Martin Luther King? Marcus Garvey? Nelson Mandela? Malcolm X? Who?? Among athletes and young Black men, Cam Newton is not alone in his hair obsession. Many male athletes have adopted the belief that a feminized hair style is central to their identity and culture. Men are every bit of obsessed with their looks and modern fashion as women… Cam is sitting around with Josina Anderson talking about Fashion Week in Paris, like how did we get here? Pro athletes, particularly Black jocks, they dress outrageously and use their stadium and arena entrances to walk the runway as models. It’s all supposed to be ‘cool’ and ‘hip.’ It’s feminine. They’ve adopted the personalities of women. If Cam was still in his playing prime, NFL teams would deal with his desire to be a fashion icon and hair model. But as a backup quarterback no NFL team wants to deal with the distraction of Cam’s childlike feminized identity. No coach wants Cam influencing their starting quarterback to waste time on fashion, dreadlocks, and cornrows. Cam should have played tight end in the NFL. His personality quirks would be accepted. Tight ends are not leaders, they’re baby wide receivers, and divas in training. The quarterback position is for LEADERS. Despite all the efforts to emasculate football, the game is still hyper-masculine. It’s counter-productive to inject a feminized leader with a victim mentality into the quarterback room. Cam is out of the league for the same reason as Colin Kaepernick. Diminished skills made teams reluctant to deal with the victim mindset and obsession with looks and branding. Cam should quit doing interviews with reporters who will tell him he’s a victim. It makes him look weak. He behaves like someone who folds at the first sign of resistance. The 2015 NFL MVP Cam Newton and the 2010 National Champion Cam Newton— the ‘clean cut Cams’, were resilient warriors who fought through adversity and criticism. They were ‘Super Cam’. Unfortunately, Newton pivoted to ‘Super Model Cam’. He’s succumbed to the matriarchal culture promoted across social media. Nobody wants a transgender quarterback. Josina Anderson won’t tell Cam that, only a man will tell Cam the truth. Real men, unfortunately, are in short supply.” (Full Segment Above)
