The “Black Lives Matter” movement has received fawning attention from the press, politicians and celebrities alike.

Beyonce paid tribute to the group with a racially charged and controversial performance during the halftime show at the Super Bowl.

And Barack Obama has invited the group to participate in White House summits.

But someone is finally speaking out against the group and their slanted agenda.

Former NFL star and Super Bowl champion, Ray Lewis, posted a video to his Facebook page asking if “black lives really matter” to the movement.

He took the group to task for rioting in the streets of Baltimore and Ferguson after the deaths of Freddie Gray and Michael Brown, but ignoring the black-on-black crime that plagues inner-city America.

RealClearPolitics reports on the transcript of Lewis’ comments:

“Why do we always find ourselves the victims, and now we have the separation once again that we’re being victimized because of one bad white cop, two bad white cops, three bad white cops, killing a young black brother. But every day we have black-on-black crime, killing each other?” Lewis asked in the video.

“The March murder rate rose by 29 percent, but we’re not rioting in the streets over black-on- black killing each other,” an aggravated Lewis said.

Lewis asked the “Black Lives Matter” movement if black lives do indeed matter.

“I’m trying to figure out if black lives really matter,” Lewis questioned. In Chicago alone, the murder rate has soared 72 percent in 2016 — 88 percent in the first three months of 2016 compared to the last year.

“I’m trying to ask the question to an organization of black lives, if they really mattered, then why not riot now?” Lewis said about black-on-black crime statistics.

“Brother, if nobody will scream to you, I will scream to you. I know black lives matter because I’m a black man, but stop killing each other. Man, we have to put these guns down in Chicago, Baltimore, Miami, man it ain’t that hard. You have to be okay with earning a living. It ain’t supposed to be easy,” Lewis said.

“If we don’t change what we’re doing not only will our kids not have a future, but we might find ourselves extinct,” Lewis concluded.

But what has “Black Lives Matter” actually accomplished?

The Obama regime’s own FBI Director warns of a “Ferguson effect” whereby police are less likely to intervene in situations out of fear of becoming the next target of a group that has chanted “pigs in a blanket, fry ’em like bacon,” while marching in the streets.

Police officers shying away from doing their jobs will only increase the crime and murder rates that all too often disproportionately affect black inner-city residents.

But the “Black Lives Matter” movement has never been about honestly confronting issues plaguing society.

It’s been a vehicle for racial grievance politics that is best evidenced by the promotion of the false “hands up, don’t shoot” meme from the Michael Brown case.

Despite all the evidence pointing toward Brown starting a fight with Officer Darren Wilson, and there being no evidence of Brown being shot while trying to surrender, the “Black Lives Matter” marketing “hands up, don’t shoot” as a social movement lit the powder keg that ignited riots in Ferguson.

What Ray Lewis is asking is for “Black Lives Matter” to honestly assess the problems they claim they want solved — and figure out what really matters.
