I’m trying to figure out if black lives really matter,” Lewis said in a video posted to his Facebook page on Saturday. “The March murder rate rose by 29 percent, but we’re not rioting in the streets over black-on-black crime.”

“I’m trying to figure out in my mind why no one is paying attention to black men killing black men. Why do we always find ourselves as 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 said.

Lewis previously made headlines when he issued a “message for the rioters in Baltimore” last year, telling kids in his city to “get off the streets” and reminding them that “violence is never the answer.”
