Justin Bieber has come out in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. In a post made to Instagram, Bieber wrote, "I am a white Canadian and I will never know what it feels like to be an African American but what I do know is I am willing to stand up and use my voice to shine light on racism, because it's a real thing and it's more prevalent now than I have ever seen in my lifetime.. we are all Gods children and we are ALL EQUAL."
