According to Complex Magazine, Usher has finally put out a statement in regards to the recent videos that TMZ released of Justin Bieber. In the videos, he is seen telling jokes with a very racist undertone & punch lines. 


Everyone was wondering wether or not Usher, Justin's "mentor" would speak publicly. He has recently been preparing for the release of a new album and has finally broken his silence saying,


At my core, I am a person that supports growth and understands without judgment, that growth often comes as a result of pain and continues effort. 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.
