Terry Crews: Attention Whore.

It's funny when Twitter is blocked and you try to read an article that's mostly Twittter posts and it's just blank spaces.

Wait, not "funny".  What's the other one?

I don't think there's a problem with Crews' logic, only a misreading of what #blacklivesbetter is intended to mean. You start with bad information, it doesn't matter how perfect your logic is; garbage in, garbage out.

I'm glad people are confronting him about the statement. If he can be brought into the fold, it is a good thing. I doubt there's anything behind #blacklivesbetter that he'd be against, so he'd naturally be in favor of it if given the right initial information.

In this online world of hot takes, it's way too easy to misunderstand something that is limited in length like a tweet.

Just read various things about her on Wikipedia and I'm not sure that Brooklyn Nine-Nine would care for an endorsement.

Welcome to today's episode of "nice guy tries to say something nice, but is clumsy about it, so let's all pretend they're actually terrible because reasons."

That article seems to want more attention than Terry. I read the tweet to mean don't settle for minor amounts of better, anything less than police reform isnt enough, etc. There's nothing about his response (if he has one yet) or users who agree so it is just a hit piece on him.

I don't love or hate Terry himself, but I have enjoyed much of his career.

Terry Crews could take a dump on my chest and I'd still be a fan.

Has Terry Crews ever said or done anything of worth? No?

Then he can fark right off, dumbass useful idiot to white racists.
 
2020-06-30 5:56:15 PM  
He made a very uncontroversial statement.

But everyone wants to be angry these days
 
2020-06-30 6:25:17 PM  
So the essence of his comment was to not let the movement become something dangerous (a movement for superiority rather than equality), and people are upset about that?

Note that he said "we must ensure BLM doesn't become" Black lives better. Not that it had. Not that it was even going that way.

farking reading comprehension, how does it work?

The problem here is we take one small step towards racial equality and Terry is oh so  worried about black people taking advantage of all the good white people.  Yeah let's not go too far with all this equality black people. Save some for later.

That's the point right there. Black Lives Matter is not, has never been and is not in any danger of becoming about anything other than equality, except in the eyes of white supremacists who falsely claim it to be. So why, other than to confirm the lies of white supremacists, would Crews make their point for them?

I don't guess I get the 99 reference because of a mildly upset reply to fuzzy worded tweet.

I'd say that his stuff during #metoo was pretty important.  He talked about how he was sexually assaulted at a Hollywood thing.  It started a big conversation about how #metoo isn't just a thing that is about women, but that it can happen even to guys who are huge.  And that it should be OK for them to talk about such things too.

I'd say that that's more important than pretty much anything that's happening in these threads on Fark.

He's allowed to be worried about t he future of the movement.  Feminists said the same thing.

Ehh no.

Every movement needs to be reigned in. The first statement from the movement for black lives decided it would start making some disparaging remarks about Israel (nothing about the neighbouring countries btw) and had some pretty choice anti Semitic words to fit into its statement.

The women's march's black organisers also pushed out the Jewish originators of the movement and also brought up anti Jewish conspiracy theories to justify it.

So let's be a little aware of what has been said in the past and be vigilant. Because if they are willing to come down like a ton of bricks on Terry Crews's statement and then say they agree with the sentiment at heart, doesn't work for me.

If the movement comes across as hostile to any other race, people SHOULD be vigilant, and call it out, and feel free to speak of the direction of the movement.

based on what?

Like the one tweet said:

"Let's keep on making the ascent up the mountain of equality before we worry about a slippery slope on the other side, okay?"

That's pretty much my take on this.

Shortsightedness is a sure path to defeat. Were you never taught as a child, that your actions have consequences, well after your action has reached its conclusion?

Seems to be a major problem in the world right now.
Stop being naive.

It's a PAC based on Marxist idealogy.

NY BLM Leader, "if this country doesn't give us what we want, then we will burn down this system and replace it."

And I love the thinking if you disagree with BLM, you are a racist.  that's what freaking got us here.  let's create more division.  Good thinking there champ!

For being on that singing show, Terry Crews sure is tone deaf.
