In a new Instagram post, pop star Justin Bieber writes:
I am inspired by black culture. I have benefited off of black culture.
My style, how I sing, dance, perform and my fashion have all been influenced and inspired by black culture.
I am committed to using my platform from this day forward to learn, to speak up about racial injustice and systemic oppression, and to identify ways to be part of a much-needed change.
Earlier, Bieber tweeted a meme that read “All lives to do not matter until black lives matter.”
Bieber also recently shared a meme that said:
“It is not enough to be quietly non-racist.
Now is the time to be vocally anti-racist.”
