Justin Bieber is using his huge social media platform once again to help spread more awareness about the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, which works to improve the inequalities and injustices faced by black people.
On Friday, the Grammy winner posted a black-and-yellow text message which stated “Black Lives Matter” on his Instagram. A few minutes later, he added an explanatory caption.
Bieber wrote, “I am a white Canadian and I will never know what it feels like to be an African American.”
The 23-year-old singer continued, “But what I do know is I am willing to stand up and use my voice to shine light on racism, because it’s a real thing and it’s more prevalent now than I have ever seen in my lifetime.”
“We are all God’s children and we are ALL EQUAL,” he wrote in conclusion.
