‘I have benefited off of black culture’ – Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber wants to use his celebrity to speak up about racism.

In a passionate Instagram post, the singer acknowledged that he has used black culture as an inspiration for his work, and succeeded because of it. That’s why he now wants to become an advocate for racial tolerance, using his privileged role to speak up about the cause.

“I am inspired by black culture. I have benefited off of black culture,” the “Yummy” singer wrote on Saturday. “My style, how I sing, dance, perform and my fashion have all been influenced and inspired by black culture.”

He continued by sharing that since he has such a massive following, he hopes to use his fame to help be an asset to the anti-racism movement.

“I am committed to using my platform from this day forward to learn, to speak up about racial injustice and systemic oppression, and to identify ways to be part of a much-needed change,” Bieber wrote.
