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.
