Justin Bieber was a stupid kid when he made that ridiculous video. Acting like that, is kind of like smoking a cigarette or drinking, it's doing something wrong, rebelling of youth. In Canada, racism is not understood the way it is in the USA. We have heard about it, but not lived it. Same as reading about sex or engaging in it. The sensitivity to the insult is not the same. I remember saying to a black friend Ha Ha, all I can see is your white of your eyes one night when we were out walking. That's how stupid Canadians, especially before spending time down in USA are. I would never say that now and Bieber would never do it now, both because he was young, and because he just didn't get it, being Canadian. Once again Americans, there are other countries besides USA with other thoughts and experiences. Enlighten yourselves!
BTW, I'm not condoning it. He should explain his ignorance.

Why make a huge thing out of Justin Bieber's racist video. When rappers use the term in less than endearing ways constantly. You finger Justin because you fear taking any side that might not appear to align with a minority. Here's an interesting article for you personnel: http://www.nytimes.com/1993/01/24/nyregion/rap-s-embrace-of-******-fires-bitter-debate.html

PS. I am by no means a fan of Bieber. In fact quite the contrary.

Nope.... You're. Right this feels different. He's laughing with glee. I don't feel like he's as ignorant as all that.

Don't believe to anything TMZ says about KERRI CASEM. She's an EVIL SCIENTOLOGIST PUPPET.
