Over the weekend Usher finally broke his silence on his protégé. After video surfaced of Justin Bieber using the n-word and singing about joining the KKK, Usher took to social media to defend the pop star, telling fans Bieber is “unequivocally not a racist.”

In a lengthy Instagram post of a throwback picture of the pair, Usher explained:

“At my core, I am a person that supports growth and understands without judgment, that growth often comes as a result of pain and continues effort. 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.”

Despite the video evidence of the young singer joking about killing Black people, Usher blamed the incident on youthful ignorance.

“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,” Usher wrote. “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.”

After the 5-year-old clip hit the web, Bieber apologized to his fans.

“Five years ago I made a reckless and immature mistake and I’m grateful to those close to me who helped me learn those lessons as a young man,” he said in a statement. “Once again … I’m sorry.”

Apparently, this latest negative incident has caused the Beebs to reevaluate his life. According to reports the pop star recently recommitted himself to God and has been studying with New York minister Pastor Carl Lentz. Bieber even got baptized in a hotel bathtub to seal the deal.

After a string of arrests and bad behavior, maybe God can help Bieber clean up his act.

    Does anyone notice that NOT ONE white celebrity/person of any status has come to Beibers defense not one.Yet Blacks falling over themselves to cape for this Dude
    The desperate need for white validation this is the pathology of many AA..Sad

    P>S so he just a kid who thinks killing [email protected]@ers and joining the KKK is funny at 15
    Is this the same society that routinely try black boys as adults from as earlier as 11 and Trayvon Martin was considered a hardened criminal /weed head at a mere 17 ? SMH

      So true, White people and other non-Blacks don’t even buy his apology. I actually saw the video on The Talk and Julie Chen called him rotten kid with such disgust, I kinda got chills lol

    Well well look what we have here…..negroes in the spotlight defending their master(s). How new. Im not exactly sure what dipping him in a tub full of tapwater is supposed to accomplish…but whatever. Im still waiting for anyone who jokes about Jews getting put in an oven to get such a warm pass. We’re the only ones that tolerated shit that no one else tolerates and then scratch our heads wondering why we’re in last place. Pathetic. I will not be supporting racist sympathizers.
