Lewis co-hosted the "TMZ Sports" TV show and got more in-depth then ever on his feelings on Kaep's stand -- and what he thinks needs to be done to make actual change in the black community.
"Kaep, I applaud you, but I am a solutions-based person. If you don't have solutions from a protest then it remains a protest."
So, what's Ray's solution to social injustice? Jobs. He heads up an organization aimed at job creation in inner city areas ... which he says is the key to ending the cycle of disenfranchisement in the hood.
"We have to give these people something to do, so that they don't choose the wrong thing."
Check out the clip ... Ray is as powerful as ever ... and makes his position on Kaep's protest and the issues in black America crystal clear.
