Lupe Fiasco Compares Justin Bieber To Donald Sterling Due To Racist Remarks

Lupe Fiasco: "I wonder if Justin Bieber is going to get the same treatment as Donald Sterling. I don't think he will."

Lupe Fiasco was recently asked to address Justin Bieber's unearthed video clips, which feature the Pop singer using the n-word in racist remarks.

"Donald Sterling, did he say the n-word?" Fiasco says in an interview with MTV. "Justin Bieber said it, but it's cool? People are already coming to his defense."

Yesterday (June 5), Mack Maine said Young Money artists wouldn't reject Bieber as a result of the racist tapes. 

"I just did an interview for, I think Fox Sports or something," Fiasco says, "and they brought up Donald Sterling in that capacity in sports. I just was like, 'I don’t think anybody should be profiting off racism.' Donald Sterling made a billion dollars. You know, sold the team, and made a billion dollars. There was such an uproar about somebody that didn't use the n-word at all. And then, you just have somebody who just made a very racist joke about it."

This makes Fiasco ponder Bieber's future.

"I wonder if Justin Bieber is going to get the same treatment as Donald Sterling," he says. "I don’t think he will. It’s an absurd twist of fate. Absurd thing. I guess that’s how the universe puts things out...It'll test you with this. See how people react. Then you get somebody who we quote-unquote 'like' who says it and says it even more racist-ier. And we don't bat an eyelash. It becomes this absurd thing. That's why I don't even deal with it...Whatever. I don't really care either way. It's just interesting to point out."
