Terry Crews: White People Can Be Republican, But 'If You're Black, You Have to Be One Thing'

On Tuesday, Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews slammed presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, warned about “black supremacy,” and insisted that black people should not be pigeon-holed into one political party. The black actor shot back at Biden’s notorious statement to Charlamagne tha God, “If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re voting for me or Trump, then you ain’t black.”

“The problem with that is, black people have different views,” Crews said on the CBS show The Talk. “When you’re white, you can be Republican, Libertarian, Democrat. You can be anything. But if you’re black, you have to be one thing. Even Joe Biden said, ‘Hey man, if you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black.'”

The actor warned against “gatekeepers” of blackness.

“Blackness is always judged,” he explained. “It’s always put up against this thing, and I’m going, ‘Wait a minute: That right there is a supremacist move. You have now put yourself above other black people.'”

“We have people who have decided who is going to be black and who’s not,” Crews explained. “And I simply — because I have a mixed-race wife [Rebecca King-Crews] — have been discounted from the conversation a lot of the time, by very, very militant movements, the Black power movement. I’ve been called all kinds of things — like an Uncle Tom — simply because I’m successful, simply because I’ve worked my way out of Flint, Michigan.”

Crews became notorious for tweeting, “Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together.”

This is a smart man. To the oblm, that means he must be silenced. At any cost.

I don’t know his politics in general, but those comments are worthy of respect.

I like Terry Crews. He’s a talented actor, former football player and thinks and speaks for himself.

I applaud him and once i read the thread title i knew he was black.

It would be career suicide and then burning of the body for a white to say why can white people be different political persuasions but blacks have to be one thing.
