Why Terry Crews' "Black Supremacy" Stance Makes No Sense

For "black supremacy" to exist, the entirety of Western history would need to change.

UPDATE July 2020: Unfortunately, the massive backlash to Terry Crews' prior "Black Supremacy" tweet in early June seemed to teach him nothing.

Terry Crews is back at it again, posting to Twitter his new acronym for "coon": "Conquer Our Own Negativity." The message furthers Crew's strange warnings about the Black Lives Matter movement leading to a form of "Black supremacy," a view he's been vocal about since early June.

Again, Terry, "black supremacy" and "#blacklivesbetter" are not valid concerns. Nobody is saying or suggesting either of those things. You have a massive platform and a voice that many people look to for guidance. Instead of using that platform to push respectability politics and fictional notions of "black supremacy," why not promote the Black community's basic human rights in America?

The core question is: Who do you think of when you dance, Terry?!

Beyoncé in "Black Is King"

Beyoncé has released Black Is King, and as usual, her work is subtly shifting the world and inspiring millions.

Black Is King is rooted in Black history. "History is your future," Beyoncé says prophetically toward the beginning. "One day you will meet yourself back where you started, but stronger." The film is studded with references to African history, portraying the lives of African royalty.
