Justin Bieber made a huge step in activism on Friday when hepublicly supported the Black Lives Matter movement. The Canadian performerhas typically been mute on topics relating to the racial tensionsin the U.S., but the Lord has lead him down the path of speaking out via Instagram.
“I am a white Canadian and I will never know what it feels like to be an African American but what I do know is I am willing to stand up and use my voice to shine light on racism,” the singer wrote. No word on where Justin’s urge to use his voice for the Black community came from, but it was a welcomed post by fans who are still pissed at The Weeknd’s girlfriend Selena Gomez for her lack of empathy for the BLM movement.
