Lore’l had to call CAP on both Terry Crews & Billy Porter for their recent comments around Black Lives Matter, the protest, and equality.
On Sunday (June 7), Crews tweeted out the following: Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together. With immediacy, folks on Twitter began to check crews for his words that, frankly speaking, came off as a misguided attempt to demand Black people include white people to bring about equality and justice across the board.
Billy Porter says that he wants the LGBT community to be respected and included in the Black Lives Matter movement. “LGBTQ+ black folks are black people, too!” Porter said. “Our lives matter, too! So this is my response to those of y’all who don’t understand that: F— you! Porter shared that Black people risk their lives every time they leave their homes and it’s doubled for queer people of color.
