Baltimore Ravens Players and Staff Beg for Justice, While Totally Ignoring Ray Lewis’ Previous Double Murder Case
In an act of solidarity, the Baltimore Ravens sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on August 31, 2020 pressing him to put the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act on the Senate floor to a vote. The Ravens’ twitter account commented “Ravens players and staff signed a letter to Sen. Mitch McConnell urging him to bring the George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2020 to the Senate floor for a vote.”

According to a report from Fox Baltimore, political analyst John Dedie claims that more athletes are becoming politically active because they can.
“Professional athletes have a large voice if they choose to use it,” he remarked.
This is in contrast to four years ago, when Colin Kaepernick stood up against alleged cases of police brutality and took a knee during the national anthem, which received a significant amount of pushback from the public.
“The conversation has completely turned from five years ago when Colin Kaepernick was the antichrist to now people are looking and saying you know what he had a point,” he stated.
According to a Pew Research poll from last year, most adults expressed their acceptance of professional athletes to voice their public opinions about political matters.
Dedie does not believe that athletes going public about their political views will have a substantial effect on a team’s fan base as many would like to believe.
“If your team is winning and has a winning tradition you can go out on this limb and sit on it, when your team doesn’t have a strong winning tradition it’s easy for the fans to say I’m done with you,” he stated.
It is rather curious that Ravens are demanding justice, when one of its former stars, linebacker Ray Lewis was implicated in a double murder back in January of 2000, but was later acquitted. Despite mounting evidence that he committed the act, Lewis got off free. There were no calls by Ravens players for Lewis to be brought to justice
Thanks to the crystallization of political correctness, America is going through a collective psychosis that may be impossible for it to extricate itself from. Most social functions across America may never be the same because of the woke mob.
