Don Lemon just told Terry Crews to start up his own movement if he wants to talk about the gang violence and black on black crime problem.

So, why don't BLM deal with gang violence and black on black crime?

What happened in that interview is that Don Lemon did not give Terry Crews an opportunity to speak.

I am a huge fan of Terry Crews. I would love to hear what he has to say about his.

Proper bonkers world though when a tweet sparks such outrage.

Terry Crews depends on white managers in the entertainment industry for work. He may be down on his luck and seeking to be noticed by prospective employers.

He tried to denigrate and divert attention from the BLM movement.

I don;t think so. I think Terry Crews is perfectly happy and safe in Brooklyn 99.

The thing is, we didn't get to hear his point at all.

Media doesn't give time to everybody to express their views, nor is it obliged to do so, especially when it is diverting attention from other current issues that are featuring on that media.

If Terry Crews feels strongly then he should become active in promoting his interests. There is no evidence that he has contributed money or time to promote the principle of stopping gun violence by blacks.

The problem that BLM faces with such views is that there are 'Uncle Toms' and Uncle Terrys out there who profit from pandering to conservatives and white extremist views.

There is nothing more Donald Trump would like than to have the media attention diverted away from BLM.

Hey, he just wrote a tweet. They called him on to comment on it. They not only did not let him comment on it, they put words in his mouth.

Disgraceful, divisive journalism.

And am am a supporter of BLM.

I'm a bit wary of censorship though. And sanctifying causes. I'm seeing a fair bout of that about traps.

Let's keep the lines of communication open, people.

He was also on Roland S. Wilson I think his name was. I usually don't like Roland but I give him Max credit for inviting Crews on and I think they also had a good discussion.

He's lost work alright but he laughs at that: he said in the interview hed rather be cancelled than in jail for killing the bloke who molested him.
That was the Roland S. Martin interview btw.

One little line: that's when Lemon said that if you want a group called All BLM then he should go start it himself.
Classic interview- this will go viral because he's saying BLM are hypocritical for not saying their culture must also look at itself😎

Sorry, Mothra, Roland S. Martin 😗
Thank you so much for this. Am watching.

Interupting the watching because a comment to Terry's tweet encapsulated my overall reaction ... 'We're a long way from that bridge". I get it. It means that Terry's ideas are utopian. That we've some work to do before we get there.

I get that BLM doesn't mean blacks lives matter more ... or that white lives don't matter ... just that there is a very real problem in the US with people being profiled, particularly young men. And young men have been known to die from it. That's, of course, not okay. ANd i get what the guy in the other video said about all movements being extreme at th time. MLK was extreme.

But MLK didn't just silence critics. He countered them.

And indeed, Terry may be closer to wha t MLK was saying that his critics.

And i want to hear more about Terry's ideas ... so ii'll go back to watching this clip now (thanks Miles) but i suspect what i will find is Terry is an idealist. He speaks for what should be. In an ideal world. Which we;'re not in.

No. That's not what he's saying.

Careful Miles. Don't use his in the same way you rare criticising others for doing.

So you're saying a black man is not allowed to critique anything or he's an uncle Tom? You're mad bro but it kinda explains the madness of the hip hop, thug and drug murder culture that even black culture itself is ashamed of!

Terry Crews made a claim about the creation of Black Supremacy which was roundly criticized. He needs to determine what his opinions are and needs to learn how to express them.

It is evident that black supremacy in the US is not only improbable but impossible in the foreseeable future.

One response: "Why is it that every Black man I know with a white partner feels the need to “both sides” this?"

Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together.

Black supremacy dont exist. There is no history of our people killing, enslaving, and making laws to instill power for 400 years for generations

dude...black supremacy? Really? This statement would have been perfectly fine without that ridiculous phrase. Please read more and/or have someone else craft your tweets. #majorfail. (note: it would have been okay to NOT say anything)

You've seriously got to stop ragging on hip hop, Miles. Much of it is incredibly poetic and powerful.

Th rest is disgusting bilge water, true, and this is the stuff that makes the radio .... but the art form itself is quite something. And it started somewhere and meant something. Still does to some.

Well i reckon that was massively taken out of context. I do understand what he was trying to say. It's poorly worded and quite unfortunate but i believe he is referring to moral supremacy.

Again, this is all just one guys's twitter feed

So talking about pimping for fun makes black culture stronger does it?
