Lupe Fiasco has a good point!
While many of Justin Bieber's pals are making excuses for his leaked racist videos, Lupe isn't so ready to forgive and forget.
Lupe is confused as to why Donald Sterling was slammed for his recorded racial slurs, but everyone is totally prepared to pardon JB's not-so-funny parody of One Less Lonely Girl.
The rapper argued:
“Justin Bieber said it [so] it’s cool, and people are already coming to his defense. I don’t think anybody should be allowed to profit off racism. Donald Sterling made a billion dollars [when] he sold the team, and there was such an uproar about somebody who didn’t use the N-word at all, but then you have somebody who made a very racist joke about it — I wonder if Justin Bieber’s gonna get the same treatment as Donald Sterling?” I don’t think he will. It’s an absurd thing — you get somebody who we ‘like’ who says it, and says it even more ‘racist-ier’ and we don’t bat an eyelash at it.”
The last time we checked "racist-ier" wasn't a word! LOLz! But besides that, we could not agree more with Lupe's disbelief.
Regardless of your status, there should be no double standard when it comes to offending an entire people, right??!
No matter WHO you are, racism is NEVER defensable in our book!
