Panthers, NFL monitoring protests in advance of Sunday game

Stefon Diggs hauls in a touchdown pass against Green Bay Sunday night

Panthers president Danny Morrison said in a statement Thursday that the team is "in contact with government officials, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and the NFL. They scored 46 last week, so they can do a lot of things". According to The New York Times, during the unrest, four officers were also injured, but the wounds are not life-threatening.

"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color", Kaepernick said.

"My big thing is holding people accountable, no matter what the race, no matter what the gender is, no matter what the age is, " Newton said.

Officials with the City of Charlotte said that the shooting involved two civilians. ". At this point and time, I think it's tough to find left tackles". He also bemoaned the fact that what had begun as a peaceful protest Wednesday night in uptown Charlotte had turned violent.

Section of Great Wall of China marred in name of restoration
The photos shocked the Internet with many expressing regrets or saying "it is even worse than damaging the Wall". This section of the wall is often referred to as the "most handsome and wild section of the Great Wall ".

Carolina Coach Ron Rivera, meanwhile, said violence was not the "right way" to protest injustice. The situation escalated on Wednesday night. From when Cam (Newton) rolled his auto and had his accident, when my house burned down, when my brother passed, the way the community gave us support, I mean - that's Charlotte. NASCAR closed its Charlotte offices Thursday after several windows were broken on the ground floor the previous night. Now attention will be shifted toward the Minnesota Vikings who come to Charlotte, NC after defeating the Green Bay Packers 14-17.

"I'm an African-American. I am not happy with or how justice has been kind of dealt with over the years, you know, the state of oppression in our community", he said. "It's kind of chaos down there right now and I hope this clears up soon". The only message you're sending doing it that way is we're going to go out and we're going to be violent, we're going to be hoodlums, we're going to go ahead and conform to the image.

On defense that day, the Panthers featured the same starting 11 they had in a loss to Atlanta in their previous game, but things eventually started to change. "That's not who we are".

The NFL has yet to publicly comment on whether the Panthers' home game will occur as planned at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday or move to another location.
