3:44 PM PT -- It would appear getting away from it all in Utah had caused an epiphany for Justin Bieber, who says he will use his platform to speak out against racial injustice ... this after acknowledging how much he's gained from black culture.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
JB took to IG Saturday with a powerful statement, writing ... "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."
He went on to say, "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 a part of much needed change."
Justinand Hailey Bieber are doing camping right -- and by that, we mean hardly camping at all ... 'cause they got a recreational vehicle that takes the "rough" out of roughin' it.
The couple's roaming the Wild West in Utah and looking to pitch a tent as you'd expect a huge pop star to do it ... in a monster of a machine. Check out their sweet RV, complete with built-in canopy and some lawn chairs to boot.
Just imagine how tricked out it looks on the inside 👀
