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.

TMZ don't let it end with these paid B Rated Bozos. Keep asking other celebrities that hang with him. Where's Rick Ross? Will Smith?

Of course Justin still makes race-based decisions-The way he dresses, talks, walks, and otherwise behaves is what he perceives to be akin to black culture. In the 90's New Jack culture we would all openly question this, as we would everything in the 90's and discuss with abandon (listen to Sublime sometime), and the only white guy that passed the test of being genuinely linked to a lower class income, rough and tumble lifestyle was Everlast, then Marshall Mathers. Justin has no inner city reference, no reason to adopt the slang, and I am not even sure what that **** is that he does with his eyebrows now....Maybe, like Rob Van Winkle, Justin will learn that you can be your whitest self and still embrace rap and hip hop as a musical style. That anything other than being yourself is - I know, it's a big word for Justin - PATRONIZING.
