Terry Crews Explains His 'Black Supremacy' Statement

Terry Crews went viral this week for tweeting about the possibility of “black supremacy” being a problem one day, and now, he’s explaining what he meant.

“One of the big things that I tweeted was the fact that I felt, you know, defeating white supremacy without the help of white people could create a black supremacy. Now, the term ‘black supremacy’ was just destroyed. What I was trying to say is that I, as a member of the black community, there have been so-called ‘gatekeepers’ who decide who’s black and who’s not. And in this effort to really push equality and to end white supremacy and systematic racism, there are certain black people who have determined that what I’m doing has no bearing. I have been rendered moot because I am successful. And my point is just the fact that we need all of us,” Terry said during a virtual appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

Find out how Terry responded to his tweets after the backlash.
