Ray Lewis Talks On Black Lives Matter For Willfully Ignoring Black On Black Crime

Ray Lewis, a former Baltimore Ravens linebacker, is criticizing and condemning the Black Lives Matter movement for their calmness when it comes to the rising rate of black-on-black crime. Ray Lewis, a current ESPN NFL analyst, posted an extremely emotional and heart wrenching video on his Facebook page on April 2nd discussing the hypocritical stance of Black Lives Matter. The video has already received over two million views.

Part of the video has Ray Lewis discussing the rising rate of black-on-black crime. In an exert from the video, Ray Lewis said, “I’m trying to figure out if black lives really matter, then in Chicago alone the murder rate has soared seventy-two percent in 2016. Eighty-eight percent in the first three months of 2016 compared to last year. I’m trying to ask the question to an organization of black lives, if they really mattered, then why not riot now?”

Breitbart News’ Warner Todd Huston described the findings from DNAinfo.com last week, “According to DNAinfo.com, the first three months of 2016 have seen more shootings than the first three months of any year in over a decade. With 790 shots so far this year, that is over 80 percent higher than the 419 March ended with in 2015.”

Later on in the video, Lewis said that he has been “trying to figure out in [his] mind why no one is paying attention to black men killing black men.” Ray Lewis, who is now 40-years-old, knows quite a bit about violent run-ins. He scolded and rebuked the movement of Black Lives Matter for not protesting the rising rate of black-on-black murder rates, yet always protesting when a black person is killed by a law enforcement officer.

“Why do we always find ourselves half the victims, and now we have the separation once again that we’re being victimized because of one bad white cop, two bad white cops, three bad white cops, killing a young black brother,” Lewis said. “But every day we have black-on-black crime killing each other. … The March murder rate rose by 29 percent, but we’re not rioting in the streets about black on black killing each other.”
