Ray Lewis Calls On The Black Lives Matter Movement To Focus On Black-On-Black Crime

A Facebook video has surfaced of former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis who asked, "I'm trying to figure out if black lives really matter. The March murder rate rose by 29 percent, but we’re not rioting in the streets over black-on-black crime." In his emotional plea, he continued:

“I’m trying to figure out in my mind why no one is paying attention to black men killing black men. Why do we always find ourselves as 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. But every day we have black-on-black crime, killing each other.

I know black lives matter, because I’m a black man, but man, stop killing each other. Man, we got to put these guns down in Chicago. Baltimore, Miami, man it ain’t that hard. You got to be OK with earning a living. It ain’t supposed to be easy. If we don’t change what we’re doing not only will our kids not have a future, but we might find ourselves extinct.”

This isn't the first time Lewis criticized the movement. In September, Lewis said “Remove the word ‘Black’ and say ‘Lives Matter.' Stop sending mothers back home empty. You can never replace a mother’s child. If we want Black Lives Matter, let’s make it matter to us. That’s the new call.”
