Justin Bieber vows to “speak out against racial injustice” says “I have benefited off of black culture”

In a new Instagram post, pop star Justin Bieber writes:

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.

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 part of a much-needed change.
