YMCMB Showing Support For Justin Bieber Despite Racist Video
Young Money President Mack Maine is letting the industry know that the crew is still down with Justin Bieber. In an interview with TMZ, Mack Maine says that there has not been a hint of racism on Bieber’s part.
On Wednesday, a second video of Justin Bieber using the “n” word surfaced online. In the video, a 14-year old Bieber is heard singing a very unique version of Usher’s “One Less Lonely Girl.” On the hook, Bieber uses the “n” word instead of singing “girl.” He then makes a references that if he killed a “n,” he’d be part of the KKK. This video comes only days after a video of Bieber’s joke where he uses the phrase “Run, n****r, n****r, n*****r.” Both videos are extremely offensive.
“Bieber does not have a slave mentality. He treats his people with respect,” Mack Maine offers, before reminding critics that Justin’s crew is predominantly black. Mack also adds that Justin has “legitimately adopted the culture of the hip-hop, African American culture.”
Maine also compared Bieber’s n-word joke to a jokes he told as a kid. “I remember telling a white man, Chinese man, Black man joke as a kid that was terrible. And I told it to my friends because I thought they’d think it was funny.”
Mack Maine says that Young Money will continue to work with Justin Bieber.
