CNN’s Don Lemon Lectures Terry Crews: Black Lives Matter Doesn’t Care About All Black Lives

CNN anchor Don Lemon lectured Terry Crews over the actor’s previous statements about Black Lives Matter, suggesting the movement really isn’t about all black lives.

Lemon, who at one point told Crews he needs to get thicker skin like him (“I have skin as tough as an armadillo”), suggested the group is, and should be, solely focused on police brutality, not black-on-black crime.

Crews initially reiterated comments that by not working with the white community, BLM is simply their own supremacist group.

“When you have the leaders of the Black Lives Movement, who are now talking about, if we don’t get our demand, we are going to burn it down,” he said. “Other black people who are talking about working with other whites and other races, they’re being viewed as sell-outs or called ‘Uncle Toms.’ You start to understand that you are now being controlled.”

“You’re not being treated as loved, you’re actually being controlled. Someone wants to control the narrative,” he added. “It was almost supremacist move where they viewed their black lives mattered a lot more than mine.”

Lemon Ain’t Having It

Enter professor Lemon to educate Crews on how a black person is supposed to think. As he is known to do, the allegedly thick-skinned journalist let emotion get the better of him and engaged in a foot-stomping, perpetually interrupting fit in talking down to Crews.

What particularly set him off is Crews bringing up the numerous black children who have been killed recently. Lemon promptly dismissed the importance of those lives.

“That’s not what Black Lives Matter is about,” Lemon insisted. “It’s not an all-encompassing … So the Black Lives Matter movement is about police brutality and injustice, in that manner, not about what’s happening in black neighborhoods.”

Only some black lives matter. That’s literally what he is telling Crews.

Crews Tries to Battle Back

Crews noted that Black Lives Matter is not concerned solely with police brutality only to be cut off by Lemon once again.

“I know that, but I agree with that’s not [what] Black Lives Matter movement is about, Terry,” CNN’s resident political hack replied. “Black Lives Matter is about police brutality and about criminal justice. It’s not about what happens in communities when it comes to crime, black-on-black crime.”

This is easily debunked by viewing the group’s pro-Democrat mission statement which sports commentator Marcellus Wiley recently explained delves into the family structure and combatting white supremacy.

“We know what identity politics does; it divides and it polarizes,” Wiley stated. “No matter how you want to look at it, that’s just the effect of it, no matter how great the intentions are. And we all know, the road to hell is paved with good intentions.”

And that, prior to Lemon’s embarrassing counterpoint, is all Crews has been trying to say.

No one race is superior to any other. But it is the Democrat party who would like people to believe there is.

“The problem with that is, black people have different views,” Crews told CBS last month. “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,” he continued. “Even Joe Biden said, ‘Hey man, if you don’t vote for me, you ain’t black.’”
