    On Monday night, CNN host Don Lemon spoke over black actor Terry Crews, lecturing him about the Black Lives Matter movement. Crews noted that Black Lives Matter has a broad range of demands far outside the realm of police brutality, and if other black voices try to suggest other approaches to various issues, they find themselves shut down and branded as “Uncle Toms.” Lemon illustrated Crews’ point by speaking over him, dismissing the actor’s concerns about black-on-black crime that has killed innocent children caught in the crossfire. (snip) Lemon gave a rather interesting answer. He suggested that Black Lives Matter...

    Terry Crews has chosen a hill to die on. It's not a hill that would normally be controversial, but in the year 2020 everything seems to have a political bent to it. Crews tweeted the fact that there are bad eggs in every race - including white and black. But he will be friends with anyone of any color if they are simply kind people. What he ultimately wants, is harmony. And the actor says he's received "threats" for voicing that reasonable opinion. Are all white people bad? No. Are all black people good? No. Knowing this reality- I...

    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...

    Source: AP Photo/Richard Drew A few days after football star Drew Brees distanced himself from his sincere remarks about the American flag because critics called him a racist, actor Terry Crews finds himself on the receiving end of the same cancel culturalists (not a Merriam-Webster approved term). This weekend, Crews shared a beautiful sentiment on Twitter: That white and black Americans should actually work together to defeat hatred. "Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy," Crews wrote. "Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together." Defeating White supremacy without White people creates...

    Powerhouse WME agent Adam Venit is on leave from the talent firm as it investigates an allegation of sexual harassment from actor Terry Crews, according to a report in The Hollywood Reporter. Crews disclosed, in a series of tweets on Oct. 10, that he was groped last year at a Hollywood event by a “high-level” executive. Crews wrote that he was at a function with his wife when the Hollywood executive came over and grabbed his “privates” and that the alleged assailant then “grinned like a jerk” when Crews asked what he was doing. Sources close to the situation told...

    Hollywood star Terry Crews unleashed a flurry of tweets on Tuesday detailing sexual harassment he received at the hands of a “high-level” Hollywood producer. The star of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and movies like “The Expendables” told fans that revelations about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein in a recent expose by The New York Times are just the tip of the iceberg. He then disclosed an 2016 incident at a Hollywood function in which an industry power player grabbed his testicles. “This whole thing with Harvey Weinstein is giving me PTSD,” the actor tweeted. “Why? Because this kind of thing happened to ME....

    Ted Cruz failed to take down Donald Trump in the Republican primaries, but maybe Terry Cruz Crews can get the job done. With elements of the current election cycle often compared to the zany, low-I.Q. future America depicted in the 2006 satire Idiocracy, it's perhaps no surprise that Crews may soon reprise his character from that film—pumped-up, machine gun-toting, R&B belting President Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho. In Idiocracy, Camacho, a former professional wrestler and porn star, presides over a failing, fervently anti-intellectual U.S.A., where commercialism and the cult of personality reign supreme, and society teeters one flush away...

    CNN anchor Don Lemon weighed in on the recent wave of toppled statues and suggested that Americans were taught "propaganda" about the nation's history. During Monday's nightly handoff with colleague Chris Cuomo, Lemon accused the president of "putting himself in a position" where he is "defending racist, treasonous people" over his support of Confederate statues and his recent tweet suggesting NASCAR made a mistake by banning Confederate flags. Lemon then defended the recent onslaught of statues that have destroyed by rioters of non-Confederates like Ulysses S. Grant and George Washington, saying "movements are often messy" and how young people "have...

    You likely won’t hear a single peep about him from the likes of CNN’s Chris Cuomo, Don Lemon and Brian Stelter, but early Tuesday morning a retired black St. Louis police who’d lived a righteous life and given back to his community was reportedly murdered in cold blood while defending a friend’s pawnshop from one of the left’s beloved looters. One of the first people to bring the death of David Dorn, 77, to the wider public attention’s was President Donald Trump, who tweeted the following late Tuesday, long before the national media picked up the story the following morning:

    CNN White House correspondent John Harwood said President Trump's reelection strategy is to use his fixation on race to rile up white voters about "black and brown people" in the United States. LEMON: The president is downplaying the pandemic as some kids with sniffles and rambling about race and black people thanking him and on and on. I would like to know who those black people are. But, why? Why is he doing this? JOHN HARWOOD, CNN WHITE HOUSE CORRESPONDENT: Don, the president is fixated on two distinct ideas. One is that he had this strong economy that was going...

    On May 20, CNN's "Cuomo Prime Time" aired one of those jokey interviews between CNN host Chris Cuomo and his brother, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. The governor had submitted himself to a coronavirus test on camera. Chris decided to mock the size of his brother's nostrils by unveiling a series of ever-larger Q-Tips (or test swabs) and cracked his brother up. CNN happily posted the fun on YouTube under the headline "Chris Cuomo teases brother Andrew with giant test swab," now at more than 693,000 views. Before that, Chris asked his brother "First of all, is it true that...

    Maybe … but was it a “hate crime”? The FBI says no, even though the garage-door pull in the stall assigned to Bubba Wallace at Talladega does look like a noose in the pictures shown on CNN. However, the news that it has been there at least since last year — long before anyone knew Wallace would draw that stall — led the FBI to conclude that there was no ill intent.Wallace won’t let it go, however. CNN’s Don Lemon told the NASCAR racer that he’s “handled this like a champ,” but a champ might know when to walk...

    NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace appeared on Don Lemon’s CNN show on June 23, the same day the FBI determined he was not a victim of a hate crime. NASCAR officials said they found a noose hanging from his garage stall at Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama on June 21. It was the first time Wallace spoke out since the FBI determined the noose had been hanging in the garage since last fall. “I’m pissed. I’m mad because people were trying to test my character and person I am,” Wallace told Lemon. “They’re not stealing that from me but they’re trying to...

    Don Lemon delivered a monologue on white supremacy and white entitlement on the Wednesday edition of his CNN program. Lemon said black people do not need the "permission" of white people to know that systemic racism exists and to do so is "whitemansplaning." "Listen, I'm just going to say it," Lemon told viewers. "I'm just going to say this stuff from now on and I'm not going to like kowtow to you know, people that say black folks, white folks, whatever and whisper 'white people, black people.' We don't have to whisper anymore, I'm just going to say it."
