Last night actor and activist Terry Crews was on a local access channel Don Lemons show on CNN. The subject was a tweet sent by Crews on June 30
terry crews terrycrews If you are a child of God, you are my brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed and ideology. We must ensure #blacklivesmatter doesnt morph into #blacklivesbetter
What a novel concept: grace, a celebration of our shared humanity, an echo of St. Paul (Galatians 3:28), an expression of the American ideal.
But that isnt the reception he received in social media where a movement focused on police brutality has morphed into a race grievance industry grift that is overtly hostile to our form of government.
Lemon, while not as aggressive as hes been known to be, was certainly not in the mood to let Crews make his case. Crews was repeatedly interrupted and towards the end Lemon hectored him about what he should believe.
Lemon directly says that Black Lives Matter does not have an all encompassing goal of protecting black lives. Rather it only cares about black lives that are politically advantageous. He tells Crews that if he wants to be interested in the epidemic of black-on-black violence he needs to start his own organization.

BLM is a fake name.
BLM is demonicRAT fundraising operation.
My gosh, Lemon is such a dumbass.
People tell pollsters that they support BLM because they think that BLM is about BLs, but here CNN admits it’s not.
Sorry, when I did the search, your thread hasn’t come up.
Years from now, this period will be referred to as the “Era of Stupidity”
Also from Tery in the interview:
“Black people wanting to work with other races are being views as sellouts, they’re being called Uncle Toms, you start to understand you’re actually being controlled.”
Secondarily, he’s a rare Black man that wants the Black community to discuss and address Black on Black violence. He sees it equally problematic and contributing to the greater problem that must be addressed. He of course takes a lot of heat for speaking truth to those who need to hear it.
I'm gonna have to steal that!
Terry should have asked Lemon if his white boyfriend is racist
When BLM says, Slavery was/is evil, arent they, then saying that Mohammad who practiced it and approved of slavery was evil? That sounds like hate speech to me.
Black Lives Matter isnt a sentence or a proposition to discuss. It is, in that charming leftist phrase, a dog whistle.
Who’s Larsen? Not Brie I assume.
Whos Larsen? Not Brie I assume ...
It is a class of crime spell check style.
Mr. Crews is a nice person. I hope he sees that Don Lemon didn’t want to understand his point of view.
Mr. Lemon isn’t an objective journalist. He is an activist on TV. He invited Terry on his show to argue with him and then cut him off.
