Justin Bieber has recently been exposed as a blatant racist, telling insensitive jokes, blasting off stereotypes and even changing the lyrics to one of his own songs to be about killing a “n****r” and joining the KKK. He’s a real class act, that Bieber, and you’d think that these damning videos would at best lose him some of his “hip hop friends” that he’s so desperate to be part of and at worst get him a serious ass whooping.
Surprisingly, neither of those two things are happening. While they can’t speak for everyone, Lil Wayne’s Young Money crew are standing by Bieber and think he’s still a-okay.
Young Money Prez Mack Maine tells TMZ … everyone on the label has interacted with Bieber extensively and there has not been a hint of racism on Justin’s part. Mack Maine says the majority of Justin’s crew is black, and “Bieber does not have a slave mentality. He treats his people with respect.”
Mack Maine says Justin has “legitimately adopted the culture of the hip hop, African American culture.”
And Mack Maine says everyone in the Young Money camp believes Bieber’s age at the time he recorded the song is highly relevant. Mack Maine confessed, “I remember telling a white man, Chinese man, Black man joke as a kid that was terrible and I told it to my friends because I thought they’d think it was funny.”
Mack Maine says that joke was as offensive as Bieber’s, and the difference is simply he didn’t get caught.
For all these reasons, Mack Maine says Young Money will continue to work with Bieber.
Alright, I’m just going to come out and say it: in no way are these dudes okay with what Bieber said and the only reason they’ll continue to “support” him is because he’s a moneymaker. They can make buckets of cash off this little asshole, so why wouldn’t they? They certainly don’t think he’s thugged out with so much “swag” that they must foster his talent; they see a paycheck and that’s it. I guarantee you Bieber’s n-word glee has only made them despise him even more than they already did.
That being said, I do get what Mack Maine is saying in that we’ve all done or said things that weren’t right, but we haven’t taken the heat because we didn’t get caught. That being said, never in my life have I sang a song about killing black people as I chuckled with glee. There’s a line, folks, and Whitey McWhiterson from Whiteville, Canada crossed it.
