given skateboards

Ray Barbee as a skateboarder is synonymous with love – everyone loves Ray. But what some people may not understand is that in moments of Ray’s life, just for the color of his skin, Ray has been met with unequivocal hate. Could you imagine, maybe you’re rolling up to a spot or to a small venue to see your friends band, and men you have never met want to kill you? Let alone hate you without ever stopping to think this person is a human being? Let us all together remind Ray how much we appreciate him for everything he has given skateboarding – including his music. Thank you Ray Barbee from The Berrics and skateboarders everywhere. Lets hope those skinheads got what they deserved.” Repost from The Berrics Instagram.
