Usher is finally speaking out about the videos that surfaced this month showing his protege Justin Bieber using the n-word and even though he wasn’t happy, Usher says J.B. is no bigot. Usher took to Instagram Saturday posting a pic of he and Biebs with a long caption describing how he feels. He explains, “As I have watched Justin Bieber navigate difficult waters as a young man, I can tell you that he hasn’t always chosen the path of his greatest potential, but he is unequivocally not a racist.” He adds, “What he was 5 years ago was a naive child who did not understand the negative power and degradation that comes from playing with racial slurs. What he is now is a young man faced with an opportunity to become his best self, an example to the millions of kids that follow him to not make the same mistakes.”
