Terry Crews lauds ‘Black Supremacy.’
Blog King, Mass Appeal
LOS ANGELES — “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Terry Crews pissed-off a bunch of white folks on Sunday when he disseminated a racially insensitive tweet suggesting that African Americans are taking over the country. As riots and protests gain steam in the aftermath of George Floyd’s quietus, the sinewy actor decided to let the world know whose team he’s on. “Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy,” Crews, 51, tweeted. “Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together.”
Crews’ gaslighting remarks are a head-scratcher. After all, many ethnic groups (incl White Americans) are protesting alongside their negro counterparts in the war against police brutality and racial injustice.
Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.
Like it or not, we are all in this together.

As you’d expect, the “Black Supremacy” communiqué went viral; igniting massive backlash on Twitter. “We have officially entered The Twilight Zone on a day when Mitt Romney marches for #BlackLivesMatter and Terry Crews does the thing he does…” director Darryl Wharton-Rigby wrote.
“I love you as a friend Brother Terry. But I disagree with you 100 %,” tweeted Godfrey, a comedian. “No such thing as Black Supremacy. That is a tactic that Racist whites use to counteract our rebellion to their horrific treatment of us. It’s called Gas lighting. Black pride isn’t anti white.”

“Every time I think Terry Crews has done the worst, he always does more,” added author Frederick Joseph. Floyd, a black man, was asphyxiated by white police officer Derek Chauvin on May 25th. The crooked cop was caught on video genuflecting on Floyd’s scruff for nearly 9 minutes.
His last words were “I can’t breathe” — à la Eric Garner.
As a ramification of police brutality, the City of Minneapolis has decided to disband its police department in exchange for community-based public safety and several cities are expected to follow suit.
Crews has had issues with white men before.
If you recall, three years ago, he sued agent Adam Venit for sexual assault.
Venit, a white man, allegedly fondled Crews’ phallus at a Hollywood soirée.
Is the tweet racist?
Did Crews cross the line?
