Ray Lewis Statue


The NFL had an interesting weekend to say the least. It doesn’t seem like the news of the national anthem kneeling’s is going away anytime soon.
Amongst the kneelers was ex-player Ray Lewis, who took the field to kneel with Ravens teammates. This being the first such case of ex-players doing so.

As a result of this an online petition has been started to take out a statue of Lewis from Raven Stadium. The petition has over 39,000 signatures as of September 27,2017 afternoon. This is from people not liking him taking the knee.

Though it’s funny how over a month ago Lewis was telling Colin Kaepernick to stay away from the social activism.

I would stand with the petitioners. Not because of the kneeling, or stance on social activism though.

It’s because Lewis should be in jail. Lewis did have double murder charges dropped.

Then he was allowed back to the NFL and played a total of 13 years with Baltimore. So if you want to glorify Lewis for being involved with criminal activity go ahead and leave the statue up.

If your just doing this in response to the kneeling, which they have every right to do no matter what you think of it then no, it’s outrageous.
