Just imagine if Ray Lewis was white

The Baltimore Ravens' Ray Lewis has a warning for the NFL owners:

Lewis told ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio that he thinks there’s a segment of the population that will be at risk of turning to criminal activity if there’s no football to watch on Sundays in the fall.

“Do this research if we don’t have a season — watch how much evil, which we call crime, watch how much crime picks up, if you take away our game,” Lewis said. “There’s too many people that live through us, people live through us. Yeah, walk in the streets, the way I walk the streets, and I’m not talking about the people you see all the time.”

Asked to explain why crime would increase without NFL games, Lewis said: “There’s nothing else to do, Sal.”

The question now is whether "Meet the Press's" David Gregory will have Lewis on to ask him if these comments are "racist" and "code language" ...

He was obviously talking about the one-third white population of Baltimore who, thanks of course only to Raven's football, is the mostly law-abiding segment of the population. Any other interpretation of Ray's words would by definition be RAAAAACIST on the part of the interpreter.
