This is What Superbowl Champ Ray Lewis Said When Asked About a Double Murder Before the Game

Baltimore Ravens player Ray Lewis is ending his NFL career as a champion, but his career could’ve ended with the 2000 double Ray Lewismurder that continues to eat away at his legacy.

Although Lewis was only found guilty of obstruction of justice in connection with the murders outside an Atlanta nightclub, he did flee the scene with the two murder suspects. When CBS’ Shannon Sharpe asked Lewis what he’d like to say to the families of the murder victims before the game, Lewis gave an odd answer where he talked about the perfection of God and problems with the criminal justice system.

CBS: “What would you like to say to the family?”

LEWIS: “It’s simple: God has never made a mistake. That’s just who he is, you see. If our system — and this is the sad thing about our system — if our system took the time to really investigate what happened 13 years ago, maybe they would have gotten to the bottom line. But the saddest thing ever is a man looked me in my face and told me, ‘We know you didn’t do this, but you’re going down for it anyway.’ To the family: If you knew, if you really knew the way God works, he don’t use people who commits anything like that for his glory. No way. It’s the total opposite.”

This is in line with many of Lewis’ previous comments where he rambles on about one topic or another. By now, Lewis should have crafted a succinct and apologetic answer to this question.

  1. While I understand the media’s facination for sensationalist journalism, in regards to its targeting of Black men. all too often we provides plenty of foder for the smear machine. This is nothing new, the casting of Black men in America, in the most uncomplimentary of lights. Ray Lewis just should’ve responded with something like, “I’m here to talk about the issue at hand”, “The Superbowl”, and moved on. Rather then going into this cop-out catch-all response that Black folks always want to revert to, “gods will decides everything”. He needs be thanking those $ 1000.00 an hour attorneys that defended him in his murder trial. I’m a Black man aend I’m absolutely damn sick of this Samarian, European based fantasy conceptual god, given prase for everything good that happens. You decendants of slaves insult and desecrate the memories of the tens of millions of your ancestors, who were displaced, tortured, murdered, raped, enslaved and colonized. Whether it be Mohammden islam or European christianity, they’re are both invader belief systems imposed on a conquered people. The qur’an and the bible, both books, alledged to detail how to live and treat your fellow man. Books of peace, love, mercy, justice and philatrophy. Unfortunately, their folowers didn’t consider Black and many other non Europeans human. So, a campaign of world conquest, in which every imaginable and some not imaginable, atrocity was committed agaisnt people, that they consider to be non human. In one form or another, this went on for well over 1400 years.
    When the hell will todays people of African descent, read a book about pre-slavery Africa. Our history starts way before slavery. As a matter of fact, “FACT”, there is solid achaeological evidence, of hominid remains in Africa, (Roman named) well over one hundred and fifty thousads years ago. If you believe, (as bible scholars proclaim),that the planet Earth is six thousand years old, you need a brain tranplant. (Metaphorically speaking sarcasm)

    Ray Lewis proclaiming to the world about how blessed he is. Meanwhile several billion people on the planet not knowing what or if they’re even going to be able to eat tommorow. While others are dieing of every horrifically imaginable malady, that can affect the human body. Somehow his fantasy god gives a damn about football or whatever his (prayer) wish of the moment may happen to be. We as a people are so gotten, that we have no idea of the degree of got, that we’ve been gotten. A clinical diagnosis of Stockholm Syndrom, would be putting it mildly.

    My comments to this story aren’t about hating anyone, it’s really meant to engage the Black mind. As Tom Burrell coined it in his book, “Brainwashed”, “The New Black Brain Campaign”. Reasoned reality, is a wonderful mental state of existence. This truly is the final frontier of the Black brain.

  2. Shannon Sharpe and Ray Lewis are friends. He was picked by CBS to interview Lewis because of their relationship. The last time the Ravens were I.the Super Bowl, it was Sharpe, a member of the Ravens, actually defending Lewis from the media barrage during Super Bowl media day. I had no problem with Sharpe’s question. He wasn’t judging Ray Lewis or attacking him in any way. The storyline was much discussed leading up to the Super Bowl, and you were expecting CBS not to revisit that, considering those families had spoke to the press weeks before the game? And while many people know about the situation that happened 13 years ago, not everyone does, though or heard Ray Lewis address it as he did Sunday.

  3. As Black Man,I find it offensive that another Black man asked that quest. Who are we to judge this man after all this time? Not one of us was there at the time, therefore,none of us can say for certain if Rays being honest or not. Sounds like another version of crabs in a barrel to me.

  4. God knows what happened and will be The ultimate judge.

  5. Ray Lewis was lying through the skin of his teeth you could look in eyes and tell there was not a shread of truth in what he was saying.I beleive that he did have something to do with this although not found guilty but eventually he will pay if he did take part in these murders this is something that you never ever get away with no matter how long it takes somewhere he will slip.O.J. Simpson was never charge with the murders of Nicole and Ron Goldman and I never beleive he did the killings but I do beleive he had a part in it yet he is rotting away in prison it took about 17 yrs after Nicole’s death and he still landed in prison for something that had no connection with her murder.So punishment is not always for what you were accused of doing and you thought that you got away scott free it always come in another form of justice

  6. Mr. Sharpe was doing the dirt of the network that employs his butt. The media is always looking for ways to critique most Black men in sports who may have or did have a run in with law enforcement. Mike Vick, Mike Tyson and of course OJ Simpson. But how about when they’re not Black and get away with raping a woman?
    Did Mr. Sharp or any of the others question a certain Pittsburgh Steeler about rape? Of course not. Did they bring that up four or five years later during an interview? Nope and he (they) won’t!

  7. How could he come up with a honest answer, when he know within his heart that he is GUILTY. The system work in his favour, because he is a THUG, and one who can be used as a good PROPOGANDA INSTRUMENT. He should be still sitting in JAIL, looking out of a KEY HOLE.
    Instead we are out there celebrating with a person who got away with murder.

  8. Im not sure it was an appropriate question to ask during an super bowel interview.
    Ray lewis went out a winner and appears hes become very religious and thats a good thing.
    Id say best wishes to him and hes family.

  9. WHY SHOULD RAY BY NOW HAVE A SUCCINCT AND APOLOGETIC ANSWER FOR SUCH A STUPID QUESTION WHEN THE OTHER 2 DEFENDANTS WHO WERE CHARGED SAID THEY WERE DEFENDING THEMSELVES WHEN THEY WENT TO COURT AND WERE FOUND NOT GUILTY. RAY HAD THE BIG NAME & POCKETS SO OF COURSE HE’S THE ONLY PERSON EVERYONE SEEMS TO REMEMBER BUT I’M TOTALLY PISSED THAT SHANNON WAS SUCH A CRAB IN THE BUCKET AND EVEN ASKED SUCH A QUESTION B/C ROTHENBERG IS NEVER, EVER ASKED ABOUT THE RAPE HE WAS INVOLVED IN DOWN IN GEORGIA. NOT ASKED ABOUT IT AND THE NFL DID NOT NOTHING, NATHAN TO HIM WHEN THEY HAVE SUSPENDED PLAYERS FOR BEING ACCUSED OF LESS. I LOVED RAYS ANSWER B/C ITS SO, SO TRUE. GOD TOOK HIM OUT OF THE BAD SITUATION AND AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE WHO HE HAD NO BUSINESS HANGING WITH AND HAS NEVER MADE HIM LOOK BACK SINCE. HIM ENDING HIS CAREER ON TOP ONLY PROVES IT. ITS FUNNY HOW PEOPLE HAVE SUCH A PROBLEM WITH PLAYERS SUCH AS RAY AND TEBOW USING THE PLATFORM THEY WERE GIVEN TO UPLIFT GOD’S NAME & GLORY. WOW!!! HATERS HATE ON!!!!……..JENNY JONES!!!!
