Chris Brown Says Justin Bieber’s Haters Are Racist, I Say They’re Just Douche-ist

Chris Brown and Justin Bieber at Haiti telethon February 2010 Can we all start a petition to get Chris Brown to stop talking? Some kind of Ursula the Sea Witch agreement? Because every time this guy opens his mouth I grit my teeth even harder than the last time. At this rate I’m going to need dentures by New Year’s. His latest comments have to do with his half-pipe buddy Justin Bieber. In previously unreleased quotes from a September JET magazine interview, Chris blamed people’s dislike of Bieber on racism.

“Justin’s not a bad kid, I’ve been around him. But if he hangs with too many Black people, ‘oh he’s hanging with the ni**as, so we’re going to let you go.’ That’s strictly what it is. It’s unconscious racism. C’mon, y’all know this s**t is bulls**t. So like at the end of the day, people f**k with people and Justin does great music. He’s still pop, but he hangs with the Black people.”

No, Chris. That’s not “strictly what it is.” Justin Bieber isn’t disliked because he hangs out with black people. Part of Bieber’s problem is certainly the people he hangs out with, but it doesn’t have to do with their race. It has to do with the fact that they hold little baggies of suspicious powder and hot-box a car with him and encourage him to pee in a mop bucket. Oh, and it’s also not so good that he hangs out with Chris himself, someone who beat up his girlfriend and continues to act like he was the victim of circumstances out of his control, as if a hurricane forced his fists into Rihanna’s face.

This isn’t the first time Chris has cited racism at an inappropriate time. He also accused the Los Angeles County DA of being racist when he was ordered to do more community service to make up for the community service he was found to have never completed. There is racism in this world, and it’s possible that some racist people disapprove of Bieber’s companions because of their skin color. But to blame anyone’s dislike of Bieber’s behavior on racism is absurd.To go even further and say that he’s just a good kid shows how much Chris hates taking responsibility for things, even other people’s actions. Apparently that’s because Chris relates to Bieber.

“I can identify with what he’s going through. People don’t understand certain people, so if they don’t understand you, they automatically hate you. They cancel you out. I’m speaking out now because I really don’t care anymore.”

I don’t think you ever cared, Chris. I really don’t.

      What Chris Brown said is not the most eloquent, and he certainly sounds like a dumbass. I will also say that as a belieber, I don’t necessarily like that Justin hangs out with Chris. But since they like to work on music together, fine. HOWEVER, I think there is some validity to what Chris is claiming, but I don’t think it’s in a “Justin is bad because he hangs out with black people” type of way. I have noticed that when a lot of people make fun of Justin they say things like “Don’t you think he’s kind of a…thug?” And will be like “He raps? What a douche.” I think a lot of people have certain expectations from Justin based on his race, and since he doesn’t meet what general society thinks a “nice white boy” should be, they make him out to be a criminal, and a bad person. In all reality, Justin hasn’t done anything that is unheard of for people his age. I think it’s high time we all stop acting like drugs, sex, speeding, and drunken belligerence is shocking behavior for a 19-year old.

      Also, Justin is a sweetheart to his fans.

        I think that there is certainly a racial aspect to why some people don’t like him. There will always be people with prejudices. But the problem I have with Chris’s statement is that he says that’s “strictly what it is” and uses it as a reason to write off anything anyone can say to criticize Justin, as if he’s really a good kid who’s misinterpreted because people are just racist. That’s the opposite of helpful.

        And I don’t think the “he’s just being 19″ excuse is acceptable. Not only is that NOT how every 19-year-old acts, but it gives Justin permission to keep causing as much trouble and being as self-destructive as he wants and then just shrugging his shoulders and saying, “I’m 19.” Then it’s not just a mistake anymore; it’s doing something because you have a ready-made excuse for it. That’s a terrible message to send young people. I think it’s high time we stop treating drugs, sex, speeding and drunken belligerence as business as usual for a 19-year-old.

        I also don’t think being sweet to his fans should cancel out his other actions.
