DON LEMON BREAKS DOWN 'BLACK LIVES MATTER' TO TERRY CREWS: On Monday evening (July 6th), Terry Crews appeared on Don Lemon's CNN show to discuss Crews' recent controversial tweets about the Black Lives Matter movement. Crews spoke about his issues with the movement, saying, “when you have the leaders of the black lives movement, who are now talking about, you know, if we don’t get our demand, we are going to burn it down. Other Black people who are talking about working with other Whites and other races, 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.” Lemon later broke down the Black Lives Matter movement for Crews, saying, “The Black Lives Matter movement was started because it was talking about police brutality. If you want an All Black Lives Matter movement that talks about gun violence in communities, including, you know, Black communities, then start that movement with that name. But that’s not what Black Lives Matter is about.”
