Terry Crews apologized for his controversial Black Lives Matter tweets during his recent appearance on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah.” Terry faced backlash in June 2020 for his comments shared during nationwide protests against the police killing of George Floyd.
Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth.
Like it or not, we are all in this together.

Any Black person who calls me a coon or and Uncle Tom for promoting EQUALITY is a Black Supremist, because they have determined who's Black and who is not.

“I’m going to let you know, I really do want to apologize to anybody who was offended by these tweets, and was hurt deeply,” Terry said. “Because as an example, as an African American man, a Black man here in this country, I did not want to give the perception that we’re supposed to gloss this over and forgive the death of George Floyd. The murder of George Floyd. And I want to apologize to everyone right now who was ever offended, because it hurt.”
“I just wanted peace. And I guess it goes back to my approval. It goes back to my need for approval, it went back to that,” Terry told Trevor. “And again, it was a mistake. It was a mistake to tweet that out at that time.”
“The need is for us as a people to actually come together and really, really be what we need to be to this country, because it’s our country,” Terry continued. “This is our country. We died and fought, and I’m not giving it away. This is our inheritance.” Although he expressed regret for the tweets, Terry has yet to remove the comments from his timeline. Thoughts #Roommates?
