Terry Crews Goes Viral Over 'Black Supremacy' Tweet, Responds to Backlash

Terry Crews sent out a tweet on Sunday (June 7) that went viral, and many called him out for his thoughts.

“Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together,” he posted on Twitter.

Terry immediately received backlash for suggesting black supremacy could even exist.

Terry responded immediately to Whiskey Cavalier actor Tyler James Williams, who he worked with on Everybody Hates Chris.

Tyler wrote, among other things, “Our people are tired of white people who put on a good face a claim they ‘arnt racist’ while operating and benefiting from the privilege of a clearly racist system. We’re not trying to do this alone. We KNOW we can’t. But we refuse to have allies who won’t go the distance.”

Terry responded, “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.”
