Usher Defends Justin Bieber's Racist Remarks

Usher sprung for the old pic of the dude...nah show his ass how he looks now.

Anywho, by now you should know there has been not one but two videos leaked of  a younger Justin Bieber making racial jokes. If not, oh well, Usher is sticking up for the kid he discovered via Instagram.

“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,” wrote Usher. “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.”The two videos, which leaked online this month, show a 15-year-old Bieber making racist jokes and singing his hit “One Less Lonely Girl,” but replacing the word “girl” with the N-word.“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,” added Usher. “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.” - Source

The best excuse for now is his age but I know a lot of people (personally and not so personal) who make the same types of jokes against other races that are African American yet call for Marshall Law when we're the butt of the joke. To me this isn't racism. It's ignorant.

When's the last time YOU used a racial slur? Are you racist? Let's stop giving this little shithead so much attention.
