Although Eric Reid helped the Carolina Panthers earn a thrilling victory in his return to the gridiron Sunday, the veteran safety referred to his first game back in the league this season as “bittersweet.” And with his decision to continue his protest during the national anthem, some Panthers fans may feel the same way.

Cam Newton, Carolina Panthers, NFL, State of the Black Athlete -

Cam Newton is an incredibly talented human being who has a job white Americans see as a white man’s job, and apparently this is vexing to America. Cam Newton is sometimes reduced to his athleticism, as in “an athletic quarterback,” aka black, which is predictably comforting to America. Cam Newton wears a Superman T-shirt under […]

Carolina Panthers, Commentary, Jerry Richardson, NFL -

I grew up in Denmark, South Carolina. And like any good Southerner, my first three loves were God, family and football. Football is as much a part of our culture in the South as hospitality or sweet tea — we eat, sleep and breathe it. And if you follow me on social media, it will […]

Nothing would do more “for the culture” than Sean Combs buying the NFL’s Carolina Panthers. From changing the power balance on player protests to addressing echoes of plantation labor, Combs would represent a quantum leap for the movement of African-Americans from playing field to owner’s box. It may seem like a Hail Mary for the […]

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — Before a reporter could go there with Carolina Panthers rookie running back Christian McCaffrey, right guard Trai Turner took it there.

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — It doesn’t take long for Cam Newton to remind one how spectacularly talented he is, and exactly why the Carolina Panthers still tolerate his missteps with the media after all these years.
