Actor Terry Crews continues to speak out against the continued racial tensions across the country by reminding everyone that no race of people is better than another. 

Over the Fourth of July weekend, Crews tweeted that people of all races are guilty of sin but he has chosen to "unite with good people, no matter the race, creed or ideology."

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."

And on June 7, the 51-year-old insisted that we don't need to be in a race war after tweeting, "Defeating White supremacy without White people creates Black supremacy. Equality is the truth. Like it or not, we are all in this together."

Crews' comments have drawn criticism and support.

Twitter user Benjamin Dixon said, "Terry, all this does is reveal to the world that you've spent the majority of your life not contemplating anything and you've had your first epiphany. Sadly for you, it was a false epiphany. You've decided to die on the hill of a false epiphany, and so let it be."

Another follower wrote, "I can't support you anymore with every tweet its like you just stab my heart. I'd think you'd stand for minorities and your black brothers/sisters but you just keep saying these undermining opinions like our pain means nothing." 

But former NFL star and author Burgess Owens agreed with Crews, tweeting, "Thank you Terry. It's absurd we live in a day where this even needs to be said."

Twitter user David Jacobs wrote that it may take a while, "but love always wins in the end."

Another follower tweeted, "It's sad that you are in this situation. I pray for healing in this nation, however, I fear it has reached a point of no return. Thank you, sir, for taking your stand." 

Following the death of George Floyd, Crews posted an emotional video to Instagram.
