  • First off, sorry I didn't post a video last week.

  • I was actually in Australia and Singapore for a couple of weeks.

  • But anyway, I haven't done a rant in a very long time.

  • I mean a legit rant from back in the day where I would just turn on

  • the camera, wake up, try to figure out how I turned on the camera

  • before waking up--you know what I mean.

  • Just ranting in one spot with no cutaways.

  • But I didn't say anything about tearaways!

  • Aaay!

  • It's a bad joke.

  • [crowd goes 'awwww']

  • Not a good start.

  • So back to the topic.

  • The last time I made a rant about Justin Bieber called Bieber Fever

  • he was the biggest thing in entertainment.

  • Literally, that should tell you how long ago that was.

  • And I was basically talking about

  • this innocent, humble 16 year old heartthrob.

  • However, four years later you say 'Justin Bieber'

  • and you definitely don't think 'innocent, humble 16 year old

  • heartthrob' anymore.

  • Anyway, even if you couldn't care less about Justin Bieber,

  • we all know who he is and how he's been getting

  • into a lot of trouble lately.

  • From vandalism to drugs and, most recently, a little racism.

  • And for those of you that might not know, about a week ago there was

  • a video about Justin Bieber making a black joke where he says

  • the N-word and pretty much everyone called him a racist.

  • And obviously he publicly apologized for it.

  • But then a few days later another video leaked of him

  • making another racist comment, this time in [soft form].

  • If you haven't seen that video, it's basically 15 year old Justin Bieber

  • singing his song, 'A Less Lonely Girl!'

  • But instead of 'girl' he uses the N-word and sings it over and over.

  • And just when you think it couldn't get any worse, he brings up the KKK.

  • And if that first video wasn't enough, after this second one

  • everyone is calling him a racist.

  • He's been caught with drugs, doing so many other stupid things, and now this?

  • I could easily pick the safe route and talk about how unfit

  • he is to be a role model because, honestly, I agree with that.

  • He should not be a role model for kids.

  • But that would be boring because everyone else is doing

  • that right now or they're going to be for the next couple weeks.

  • But if the question is if Justin Bieber is racist,

  • I can honestly say that I see both sides.

  • And I'm about to give you the side that's probably a little more unpopular.

  • Like I said, I still don't think Justin Bieber should be a role model for kids.

  • Not because he does drugs or does other stupid things,

  • it's because he gets caught doing them.

  • He can take all the drugs and do all the stupid things

  • he wants. It's his life.

  • But he has so many kids looking up to him, he has a responsibility

  • to not let those things get out. But that's just my opinion.

  • And now because of those two leaked videos,

  • everybody and their mothers are saying that Justin Bieber's a racist.

  • And, personally, I really don't think he is.

  • I'm sure a lot of other people agree with me too,

  • but they don't want to say it because they don't want to sound racist.

  • Let me tell you why.

  • Both of these videos are of Justin Bieber when he was 14 or 15 years old.

  • And as a teenager everybody says and does stupid things.

  • And if you're in your twenties and you could still see your MySpace

  • I bet if you went back and read it you would see how stupid you are.

  • You'd say things or write things that you would never do now.

  • And if you're a teenager now, you might think that things

  • you're saying and doing aren't stupid now, but check your Facebook

  • in 5-10 years and I'm pretty sure you're gonna think otherwise.

  • And I know a lot of people are gonna say that him being a kid

  • at the time doesn't make it any less racist.

  • I agree, he doesn't. He said the N-word

  • and some pretty racist things that got out to the public.

  • But like I said, everyone does and says regrettable things when they're kids.

  • And even if you don't excuse him for his age and you still think

  • he's a racist, as bad as it may sound,

  • he was clearly not serious about what he was saying.

  • I mean, in the first video he was literally making a joke.

  • Jokes aren't meant to be serious.

  • If you were black or a stand-up comedian that wasn't black and he said

  • what he said, people would just let that slide.

  • It's just because he's Justin Bieber. A lot of people don't like him,

  • so he's instantly a racist.

  • In the first video, he was literally making a joke.

  • It was a racist joke, but still it wasn't serious.

  • The second video's a little edgier, but it's still pretty obvious

  • that he was joking.

  • I mean, he's spoofing his own song while other people are laughing with him.

  • It literally looked like a video of a bunch of friends goofing off

  • together, hanging out in a room privately.

  • I'm sure he never meant that video to be seen or heard ever,

  • just like the Donald Sterling situation.

  • Which brings up a good point. There's a big difference

  • between the Justin Bieber situation and Donald Sterling.

  • See, I do believe that Donald Sterling is a racist because

  • in his recording he says some things that were clearly serious

  • and not meant to be a joke or make people laugh.

  • But the thing that makes him racist is that he actually sees other ethnicities

  • as inferior to his own and he acts upon it.

  • See, that's a real racist.

  • Justin Bieber just said some racist things to make people laugh.

  • Sure, call him an idiot, but he's not a racist.

  • There's no evidence of him treating people differently because of race.

  • Even if sometimes he acts like an ass to fans or flight attendants

  • or Seth Rogen-- it's not because they're black.

  • He's an ass to everyone! Equally! He's an equal ass!

  • I mean, look at his Instagram. He has black friends.

  • I'm pretty sure if he didn't like black people

  • he would not be friends with them.

  • So overall, to wrap up, no I do not think Justin Bieber should be a role model

  • for kids and in no way am I defending him, but he's not racist.

  • I guess that is kind of defending him.

  • But I'm not defending him because I'm a Belieber.

  • I just don't think it's right to be calling someone a racist when they're not.

  • Calling someone a racist is a big deal in this day and age

  • and you can't label someone a racist just because of a couple of jokes

  • they made back when they were a kid!

  • I mean, if you can honestly say that you've never said something

  • as a kid that you wish you didn't say, and if you never repeated

  • a black joke or any racist joke that you heard to a bunch of family

  • and friends in a private location thinking no one else would hear it,

  • congratulations. You literally might be the best person in the world.

  • The best person that I know, at least.

  • You should be the next Justin Bieber! The President, the Pope!

  • Because you're pretty damn close to perfect and people should be following

  • a role model like you.

  • But then again, if you really do believe that you haven't done

  • anything wrong in your life and you think people

  • should follow what you do, it's pretty cocky of you to think that.

  • And now I hate you.

  • See how that works?

  • And I'm gonna say it again: Just because this video

  • is based on racism and I already know the comments, my last name

  • is Okinawan so it's pronounced HEE-ga.

  • Not Higga.

  • So it's pronounced NigaHEE-ga.

  • If you're interpreting it the other way, that's because you're reading it wrong

  • and that would make you a little racist!

  • But anyway, thank you guys again so much for watching.

  • Like I said, this was my first rant in a long time without any cutaways.

  • Although I did have a lot of urges to do so, especially on that one

  • part of the video where I said: "Wiggle...he's an ass to everyone!

  • Equally! He's an equal ass!"

  • So close.

  • TEEHEE

  • This video's racist, man.

  • No...what?!

  • You can't get away with saying all of this.

  • You're not a stand up comedian, you're not black,

  • and you don't have any black people in it!

  • Yes, there is! You're in it.

  • In the very beginning, remember?

  • First off, sorry I didn't post a video last week.

  • I was actually in Australia and Singapore for a couple weeks.

  • What?! I'm in the video?

  • See? What'd I tell ya'?

  • Hell yeah, I'm a n-------!

First off, sorry I didn't post a video last week.
