Cam Newton and Ray Lewis Use Black on Black Crime Rhetoric Amid Latest Police Brutality Incidents
When asked about the killing of Keith Lamont Scott, Cam says in a recent press conference:
“I’m a firm believer in justice. I’m a firm believer of doing the right thing and I can’t repeat it enough of just holding people accountable.
“I’m an African-American. I’m not happy how justice has been kind of dealt over the years…with the state of oppression in our communities. But we also as black people have to do right by ourselves. We can’t be hypocrites.”

Ray Lewis also used black on black crime as a talking point when he made a recent appearance on “Undisputed.” He says:
“You think about what Colin is doing. He’s standing up for it and saying let’s bring awareness to it. But since he’s been kneeling, we’ve still had numerous murders of cops and Dwyane Wade said it best, ‘Until we as black people value where we are in this country, we will never see change.’ Until we understand that we must stop killing each other, to really bring an issue to this.”
