Lupe Fiasco Wonders If Justin Bieber Will Get the Donald Sterling Treatment
By Courtney E. Smith
He responded with a question of his own: did Donald Sterling, the soon-to-be former co-owner of the Los Angeles Clippers, actually say the n-word?
“I don’t think anybody should be able to profit off racism,” Fiasco said. “Donald Sterling made a billion dollars. Sold the team, made a billion dollars. There was such an uproar about someone who didn’t use the n-word at all. Then you have somebody who made a very racist joke about it. I wonder if Justin Bieber is going to get the same treatment as Donald Sterling. I don’t think he will.”
Fiasco goes on to characterize Bieber’s statement as being “more racist-er” than what Sterling said and finishes up by saying, “but whatever, I don’t really care either way.”
