Usher says Justin Bieber isn’t a racist, so…

Usher‘s the man responsible for bringing Justin Bieber into our lives, so we only have him to blame thank, right? You’d think he’d be pretty disappointed from all of the revelations about Justin happening lately – from the racist jokes, to the glee over talking about killing “n****rs”, JB is really a class act.

Surprisingly, most of the black people in Justin’s public life don’t seem to be all that bothered about it – though that sorta makes sense considering how much money they have to lose by severing ties with the little prick. With that in mind, Usher offered a message of support and insisted that his little protegee is totally not racist at all, he was just “naive”.

Usher posted the above photo with the following message on his Instagram page this weekend:

At my core, I am a person that supports growth and understands without judgement, that growth often comes as a result of pain and continues effort. As I have watched Justin Bieber navigate difficult waters as a young man, I can tell you that he hasn’t always chosen the path of his greatest potential, but he is unequivocally not a racist. What he was 5 years ago was a naive child who did not understand the negative power and degradation that comes from playing with racial slurs. What he is now is a young man faced with an opportunity to become his best self, an example to the millions of kids that follow him to not make the same mistakes.

Ay carumba. Again, I find it hard to listen to any of these assholes coming out and supporting him – especially when their motivations are not about tolerance about financial gain. NOPE.

  • If, as you say, most of the black people in his life have no problem with it, then why do you? Are you the Black Defender?
