Petition to remove Ray Lewis statue from

  • After warningColin Kaepernick to keep quiet about social activism earlier this year, former Ravens great Ray Lewisknelt during the playing of the national anthem Sunday with current Morten Andersen Jersey members of the team.Lewis said Tuesday his decision to kneel on both knees was to "simply honor God in the midst of chaos." He was criticized for the anthem demonstration by bothKaepernick supporters and those who believe Lewis and the Ravens weredisrespecting the flag.The latter launched a petition SundayAlex Mack Jersey to remove Lewis'statue from M&T Bank Stadium, saying on Change.org that kneeling during the anthem is "disrespectful, regardle s of what you are protesting."The petition addre sed to Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti has receivedmore than 60,000signatures as of Thursday afternoon.I took two knees because I have a first amendmentright just like everybody else. And when I came out of that locker room, I had choice to make, Lewis told105.7 The Fan in Baltimore.And look at my Game Vic Beasley Men's Jersey fellow players and I looked at these young guys. Im not in the protestingbusine s, Im not into this, whatever (Donald) Trump wanna say. Im not into that me s, but if these young boys doing what they doing, then I got to meet them where they are.President Trump created quite a stir in the NFL by calling any player who kneels during the national anthem a "son of a bitch" and calling Atlanta Falcons Game Jersey for owners to "fire" those players.NFL teams responded with a ma sive display of solidarity Sunday and Monday as players, coaches and owners all locked arms during the anthem to relay a me sage to Trump that they will not be divided.Im not in the league anymore, so the Trump comments dont bother me, but theyre so out of order,said Lewis, a 13-time Pro Bowler and Super Bowl MVP whoplayed his entire career with the Ravens.Youre just talking about kids, youre talking about the kids who got mothers, mothers who sacrificed everything and families who sacrificed everything, and now you dont give us no platform to say nothing on it just baffles me that he would come out Matt Ryan Jerseyand say something like that.
