“We have officially entered The Twilight Zone on a day when Mitt Romney marches for #BlackLivesMatter and Terry Crews does the thing he does….“.
Another Twitter user, @TheBronzeStatue replied to Crews’ Tweet:
“Black supremacy don’t exist. There is no history of our people killing, enslaving, and making laws to instill power for 400 years of generations.”
Actor Tyler James Williams replied to Crews’ tweet:
“Terry, brother, I know your heart and you know I have love for you and always will.
No one is calling 4 black supremacy & the narrative that we are hurts our cause & our people. We’re just vigorously vetting our “allies” because time & time again, they have failed us in the past.”
“I understand, Tyler. I was not saying Black supremacy exists, because it doesn’t. I am saying if both Black and Whites don’t continue to work together — bad attitudes and resentments can create a dangerous self- righteousness. That’s all.”
