We were introduced to the on-screen, father-son duo of Terry Crews and Tyler James Williams by watching Everybody Hates Chris once it aired in 2005. Since then, fans continue to keep up with actors.
Recently, Terry Crews has been catching a lot of heat for his recent remarks regarding, “Black supremacy.”
“Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth,” Crews penned. “Like it or not, we are all in this together.”
Although the actor has been under fire for the comment, Tyler James Williams has stepped in with a different approach. “Terry, brother, I know your heart and you know I have love for you and always will. No one is calling 4 black supremacy & the narrative that we are hurts our cause & our people. We’re just vigorously vetting our ‘allies’ because time & time again they have failed us in the past,” Wiliiams wrote on Twitter.
“Our people are tired of white people who put on a good face a claim they ‘arnt racist’ while operating and benefiting from the privilege of a clearly racist system. We’re not trying to do this alone. We KNOW we can’t. But we refuse to have allies who won’t go the distance,” he continued.
Williams concluded his Tweet series by making his intentions clear on why he addressed the situation. “I’m not trying to call you out @terrycrews. You know it’s all love always. But we’re rightfully angry right now and fed up with anyone not with our cause wholeheartedly. I don’t want to see that energy pointed your way or diverted from the cause.”
Well said Tyler.
