Justin Bieber shared a powerful post on social media on 6 May (Saturday). The singer admitted to having been inspired by black culture over the years. He also claimed that this is visible in his style – his singing, dancing, performance and fashion.

Amid on-going protests against racial injustice, Justin promised to use his platform to fight against racial inequality. The singer also wishes to be part of this change.

“I am inspired by black culture. I have benefited off of black culture,” writes Justin. “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 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.”

Justin Bieber has recently been very vocal about where he stands. He was urging his own fans to educate themselves and advocate against racism in their communities.
