Former Baltimore Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis had some harsh words for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick for his refusal to stand for the national anthem.
During his appearance on the Fox Sports 1 Channel’s “Undisputed,” Lewis saw nothing wrong with the young NFL player speaking his mind — it was how he went about doing it that Lewis wasn’t happy with.

“Listen I understand what you’re trying to do, but understand, take the flag out of it,” Lewis began.
“I have uncles, I’ve got brothers, going into the military, that said I will never see you again. To understand that I will always respect that part of what our patriotism should be. And that’s the side that I think if Colin just really steps back, to effect change, to effect true change in what he’s trying to say, if you don’t have a real solution, if you ain’t seen as a true activist, to go into hoods and do these things on a daily basis and not just jump up and just protest off this one thing because you’re sick of it — we’ve been sick of racism for 400-plus years.”
