In the aftermath of last week's Charleston shootings, the Carolina Panthers organization and its players continue to reach out in support of the victims and their families.
The organization, which holds its training camp in Spartanburg, South Carolina, has also joined the movement for the removal of the Confederate battle flag from the S.C. state capitol. Gov. Nikki Haley called for the removal of the flag Monday.
"So when it comes to the flag, that's nothing new," Norman continued. "That's what it's been since day one in the South. But don't get it twisted. I love S.C. and wouldn't change from calling it my home.
"But some things from our culture from the past just have to change and stay in the past. It shines a very bad light on what's so much future promise and progress for our state. And it's just so very sad to see lives have to be taken for this issue or topic to have lights placed upon it."
