Ray Lewis Blasts Black Lives Matter For Ignoring Black-on-Black Crime: Do Black Lives Really Matter?

Former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis posted a video on his Facebook page over the weekend where he ripped the Black Lives Matter movement for ignoring the problem of "black men killing black men."
In his heartfelt video commentary Lewis called out the movement for making black people feel victimized while "every day we have black-on-black crime killing each other." Lewis said there aren't any riots over this problem.
"Why do we always find ourselves 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?" Lewis asked in the video.
The black community needs more men like Ray Lewis to step up and tell it like it is, because the messages from race hustlers like Al Sharpton are sending black people down the wrong path and dividing our nation.
