Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton Rejoices to See Confederate Flags Removal

Cesar Tordesillas – 4E Sports Contributor

Fort Mill, SC, United States (4E Sports) – Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton rejoiced Friday to see the Confederate flag taken down from the South Carolina Statehouse grounds in Columbia.

Newton described the flag as a “remembrance of something not what this country is all about” and a “symbol that represented so much hatred.”

He said that the flag’s removal is about Caucasians, Chinese-Americans and everybody just coming together.

The Panthers, who represent North and South Carolina, were among many organizations in the Carolinas that pursued the flag’s removal.

The plea gained momentum after nine black churchgoers were shot and killed three weeks ago at a church in Charleston, South Carolina.
