Tamera Mowry Remains Quiet While Husband Battles Black Commenters About His July 4 Post

Today is about Americans. I see my feeds and the disagreements and name calling and columns and while it annoys the crap out of me is signifies one blatant fact…freedom. As completely crazy as things seem right now, we are free to be ridiculous. Do you know how many countries in this world that is unacceptable? Most..a massive majority. Venezuela where socialism has ruined the country…nope. Our biggest rivals China and Russia…nope. Even in many EU countries…nope. Having said that…we must also remember that while it seems we are so divided we are not. The massive majority of us…massive…agree on about 90% of everything, yet we allow politics, politicians and outside sources emphasize the 10% at most that we do not agree. We the people need to remember one big fact on this anniversary of our independence…we are one. Before you call someone a name, or make a judgement…we are one. Before you eliminate a friend or end a relationship..we are one. Before you think you are different, or that you are in a column that no one else understands…we are one. Now…go enjoy the day and celebrate freedom. Let the positive…the 90% shine through. #thehousleys #celebratethe4thofjuly

Tamera Mowry’s husband Adam Housley was on the receiving end of some backlash after his Fourth of July post about unity went completely left.

The actress’s spouse of seven years posted a lengthy message on Instagram Wednesday, boasting about freedom of speech and imploring followers to recognize that “we are one.”

“Today is about Americans. I see my feeds and the disagreements and name calling and columns and while it annoys the crap out of me is signifies one blatant fact…freedom. As completely crazy as things seem right now, we are free to be ridiculous. Do you know how many countries in this world that is unacceptable? Most..a massive majority. Venezuela where socialism has ruined the country…nope. Our biggest rivals China and Russia…nope. Even in many EU countries…nope.

“Having said that…we must also remember that while it seems we are so divided we are not. The massive majority of us…massive…agree on about 90% of everything, yet we allow politics, politicians and outside sources emphasize the 10% at most that we do not agree.

Now…go enjoy the day and celebrate freedom. Let the positive…the 90% shine through. #thehousleys #celebratethe4thofjuly.”

In response, several Black commenters weighed in on the problem with the holiday, which was established at a time when Black people were enslaved.

“I agree with everything you said. But I celebrated my independence on June 20th because on July 4th for many years prior my people could not celebrate the freedoms that yours could. As a fan of yours, I just hope you can understand that as well. Unlike many others, I hope you’re enjoying your holiday .”

“@jessicajacqualynblog we can all celebrate both and nowadays; your people are my people and vice versa,” Housley responded.

“@adamhousley I agree we are all one human race I just disagree in ignoring cultural groups and one’s history for the sake of all adapting to a dominate [sic] one world culture,” the user replied. “We are all human but currently, we are not one. And it’s not just a ‘move on’ matter. But our people have always been the same not just nowadays. The thing that’s different about nowadays are laws against violence. The Fourth would not be significant for me without the [19th of June]. I see no reason to celebrate today. I also do not judge others for celebrating the Fourth. I would only hope to get the same respect in return for my choice.”

“Btw you’re awesome for responding and keeping the conversations going. Feels like actual progress @adamhousley.”

As other fans also took issue with Housley’s stance, he replied to them too.

“@adamhousley it is easy for me to hold a bit of prejudice because my people suffer the most systematic oppression but I do believe inclusion is the only way to stop the spread of hatred. However, this is not my people’s holiday.”

“@theoriginalqueenz it is all our holiday…past injustices and all,” Housley said in response.

“We are a VERY divided country right now. It is necessary to acknowledge that fact,” someone else said to which Housley responded, “@anita0130 you didn’t ingest anything I just said.”

In a now deleted exchange, things got more tense for Housley.

“Another privileged white man telling the people who were and still are treated like s— in this country how they should feel *pretends to be shocked.* Drink your Bud Light, eat your hot dog, wave your flag and stfu.”

“Lol. People like you are the problem,” Housley said. “Everything you just said is stereotypical and true of anything I do or have done. Enjoy your life in a hole. The rest of us are moving on.”

Mowry has not weighed in on the matter but used her Fourth of July post to focus on the couples’ children.

🇺🇸Happy 4th of July from Aden and Ariah! #fourthofjuly
