OWINGS MILLS, Md. -- Ray Lewis said the Baltimore Ravens chose not to sign Colin Kaepernick after the quarterback's girlfriend posted a "racist" tweet featuring the former All-Pro linebacker and owner Steve Bisciotti.
"We were going to close the deal to sign him," Lewis said on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" on Tuesday night. "Steve Bisciotti said, 'I want to hear Colin Kaepernick speak to let me know that he wants to play football.'"
The Aug. 2 tweet by Nessa Diab compared a picture of Lewis hugging Bisciotti to a scene from "Django Unchained," where Samuel L. Jackson's loyal house slave held Leonardo DiCaprio's cruel plantation owner.
"His girl [Kaepernick's girlfriend] goes out and put out this racist gesture and doesn't know we are in the back office about to try to get this guy signed," Lewis said. "Steve Bisciotti has said it himself: 'How can you crucify Ray Lewis when Ray Lewis is the one calling for Colin Kaepernick?'"
Lewis was asked whether the Ravens would've signed Kaepernick if not for the tweet.
"Then he's flying him to Baltimore," Lewis said. "I am sitting with all three of them and we are all having a conversation about bringing Colin Kaepernick in."
No, I don't see that as a racism. I don't see that as looking down at someone because of their skin color. This is an example of:
Person A: "you're an uncle Tom, and your boss is racist"
Person B (Ray Lewis): "you're racist for implying racism!"
that is the whole point of the meme to begin with... to imply the racism.
Interesting since you see racism in almost everything else.
Everything else? I assume you would be able to find something very fast and very recent of me claiming something is racist since I claim almost everything else as racism.
So, you'd just shrug your shoulders if you're Biscotti and sign the guy, eh?
Ray Lewis tells Kaepernick to stop with the social justice, him and his gf view Ray Lewis as doing the bidding of the owners and telling them to shut up. They view him as akin to an Uncle Tom which is implying that Ray Lewis is the racist...
Ray Lewis is being called out by many people from the black community for this as they see the white owners as being racist. So he calls them racist for calling him a racist.
