In this video clip, Ray has had a problem with the Black players all season.
He allows an opposing player to easily get through the line of scrimmage, and tackle Rev, his own quarterback! Resulting in a broken bone in Rev’s wrist.

It was unusual for a white player to speak out against another white player, in defense of an African-American player.
But sometimes having integrity means trying to feel what it feels like to go through what someone else is going through.
