In the movie Judas and the Black Messiah, when the Black Panthers are playing pool in a pub while giving a speech at the same time, another group of African Americans wearing green berets approach them and force them to leave with threats.

The beret-wearing African Americans state:

This place is under the protection of the crown.

I am wondering who or what is "the crown"?

  • "The crown" is often used to refer to the British monarchy, but that can't be the case here, since this film is set in America. – F1Krazy Mar 26 at 11:33

It's "the crowns". According to the script, page 5:

A2 INSIDE - O’NEAL’S POV A2

Five young black men cluster around a pool table in the back. Several wear green berets: the calling card of the Crowns, Chicago’s most notorious gang.

After watching the movie a second time, I can confirm that the Crown or the Crowns is the name for a gang. Just like Black Panthers; the crowns are not related to the British royal family in any way.
