Lil Wayne
, Birdman and the rest of the Young Money Entertainment crew are not abandoning Justin Bieber in the wake of the latest racist video to surface ... telling TMZ that Bieber is still family. 

Young Money Prez Mack Maine tells TMZ ... everyone on the label has interacted with Bieber extensively and there has not been a hint of racism on Justin's part.  Mack Maine says the majority of Justin's crew is black, and "Bieber does not have a slave mentality.  He treats his people with respect."

Mack Maine says Justin has "legitimately adopted the culture of the hip hop, African American culture."

And Mack Maine says everyone in the Young Money camp believes Bieber's age at the time he recorded the song is highly relevant.  Mack Maine confessed, "I remember telling a white man, Chinese man, Black man joke as a kid that was terrible and I told it to my friends because I thought they'd think it was funny." 

Mack Maine says that joke was as offensive as Bieber's, and the difference is simply he didn't get caught.

For all these reasons, Mack Maine says Young Money will continue to work with Bieber.

Or alternatively ... we mooch off his money and fame, he gets to claim our natural hip-hop cred ... a win-win. So why would we let racism come between us and a good thang? Principles-4-sale, but then, that's always been hip-hop, hasn't it?

Rappers as usual run to the defense of a racist. But still degrade blk women in their songs.

I just saw this on another site - Harvey and Charles lied - do you remember when Justin appeared on TMZ a couple of years ago? They were given access so that they wouldn't report on his bigotry. Follow the link.

Of course they are going to defend him. JB is richer than the rest of them put together. They party and use drugs at his house. Drive his fancy cars. Its all on JB's dime.

What hypocrites! Lil Wayne went after scooter Braun way after he told Justin to stop hanging around with lil twist. Justin Bieber on the other hand used the N word more then once. I don't want to hear he was just 15 either. I remember being 15 & knew what not to say. Problem is that Bieber thought he could say anything at the time. They are stupid enough to think he can become a rapper. Eminem is really the only white rapper with huge success that has lasted. Eminem also struggled to get his success. Bieber is a Canadian who has faced little adversity. Macklemore has had success, but will it last over a decade like eminem. I doubt bieber will have one hit song.
