Admitting the timing was a mistake, Crews went on: “I just wanted peace. And I guess it goes back to my approval. It goes back to my need for approval, it went back to that.

He said of the message he meant to put out there, “The need is for us as a people to actually come together and really, really be what we need to be to this country, because it’s our country. This is our country.

“We died and fought, and I’m not giving it away. This is our inheritance.”
