Actor Terry Crews and CNN Tonight host Don Lemon engaged in a spirited debate on CNN last night about Black Lives Matter and what the movement means.
Crews, who has recently written numerous tweets related to the movement said that “Black people have to hold themselves accountable,” for the recent violence in Chicago and Atlanta that has left several young children dead from gunshot wounds.
“There are neighborhoods being held hostage by people, who are literally running [them] with violence and then [claiming] that Black lives matter.” Crews said, with no evidence.
Lemon then explained that the Black Lives Matter movement is specifically about police brutality and the criminal justice system. He explained that he previously lived in Chicago.
“There are a lot of groups there fighting gun violence in that city,” Lemon asserted. He then explained that the myth of “Black on Black crime” is due to proximity.
