Justin Bieber is using his platform to speak up about black culture.

With 138 million followers, Justin wrote on Instagram: “I am inspired by black culture. I have benefited off of black culture.  My style, how I sing, dance, perform, and my fashion have all been influenced and inspired by black culture.  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 a part of much needed change.”

 

 

On May 26, Justin reposted the video of George Floyd’s death along with a caption that read, “THIS MUST STOP – this makes me absolutely sick.  This makes me angry this man DIED.  This makes me sad.  Racism is evil.  We need to use our voice! Please people.  I’m sorry GEORGE FLOYD!”

Following George’s death, Justin, along with many other artists, began to focus on speaking out against racism.  Check out some of Justin’s posts below.
