Actor Terry Crews triggered a barrage of criticism recently when he said that equality and cooperation are the only possible solutions to the current climate of racial turmoil and distrust. Crews had opined that, "Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together." Crews’ obviously correct statement was met with a firestorm of criticism by those to whom virtue-signaling is the one true religion. This prompted him to explain: "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.” He added that he was primarily addressing members of the black community “who decide who's black and who's not,” and noted, "I have often been called out for not being 'black enough'. How can that be?"
Some of Crews’ fellow black community members didn’t care for his “racist” message of equality and cooperation. Quite a few lashed out at him. One told him: "Shut yo coon a** up.” This is where we are today: one black man calling another a racist for urging equality and cooperation among the races…and commanding him to “shut yo coon ass up.” It would be hilarious if not so sad.
Crews stated, "Any Black person who calls me a coon or an Uncle Tom for promoting equality is a Black Supremist, because they have determined who's Black and who is not.”
