This is such a sweet image in such a tough time for the entire family.
The Biebs posted this comment on Instagram, along with the commenter's screen name, which will surely result in more than a few messages from Beliebers:
"It's not your place to judge. God put these people in my life for a reason, and just because they are African American that makes them a bad influence?? These are the people that I love and all of us are going to help make the world a better place."
Now we read the original comment - a couple times - and we're pretty sure the commenter didn't drag race into the discussion!
We're not sure if there was some other exchange with this commenter that DID involve race, but if this is all that was said…
…might want to think before you jump to conclusions and put someone on blast for all your Beliebers, Biebsy.
