“There is so much division in this world,” Bieber said during the show. “So many racial injustices. And as we both know, racism is evil and it’s diabolical. But what you and I have to do is become the makers of difference. We become the people who keep having conversations with our friends, our families and our dear ones, who continue to be allies ”.
“Racism will not prevail unless GOD DO IT,” Bieber wrote on Instagram. “WE ARE WITH YOU BUFFALO AND AGAINST THIS ACT OF RACIST TERROR.”
