June 8, 2020

Justin Bieber is vowing to do his part to stop racial injustice. 

In a note shared with his 138 million Instagram followers on Saturday, Justin opened up about how black culture has played a role in his career.

"I am inspired by black culture," he wrote. "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."

The "Yummy" singer added, "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."

This isn't the first time Justin has been vocal in his support of the Black Lives Matter movement. He recently shared an update about George Floyd's case and information on how to continue seeking justice for Breonna Taylor. He even encouraged his American fans to get out and vote even though he's Canadian and can't participate.
