Terry Crews Defends His Decision, Adds: ‘Unite With Good People, No Matter The Race’

OPINION | This article contains commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Actor Terry Crews has repeatedly called for people to unite together, to put aside their differences, and to pursue peace.

Liberals are writing him off as a radical.

He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. He does not understand the plight of the black community in America. He should not just look past racial injustices.

Democrats have used these lines and others to try and criticize Crews, but he’s remaining steadfast.

“If I’m truly your equal, I can discuss my concerns with you- but if I’m not- all my concerns are perceived as threats,” he wrote on Twitter on Tuesday morning.

As recent as the Fourth of July weekend, Crews was also advocating for goodness.

“Are all white people bad? No,” he tweeted.

“Are all black people good? No,” the actor continued.

“Knowing this reality- I stand on my decision to unite with good people, no matter the race, creed, or ideology,” he added. “Given the number of threats against this decision-I also decide to die on this hill.”

Faithwire reports:

The actor has been under the social media microscope for nearly a month now after sharing several of his comments about equality and justice.

On June 30, Crews warned Black Lives Matter activists against turning the movement into “black lives are better.”

“If you are a child of God,” wrote the “America’s Got Talent” host, “you are a brother and sister. I have family of every race, creed, and ideology. We must ensure #BlackLivesMatter doesn’t morph into #BlackLivesBetter.”

Earlier last month, critics piled on Crews after he first tweeted that all Americans were in this racial struggle together and should work together for a solution.

“Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together,” he said on June 7.

Crews appeared on a video interview with CNN’s Don Lemon where he was also asked about his call for unity to bring about racial change.
