Justin Bieber has officially joined the Black Lives Matter movement. Bieber

The pop star took a political stance on his Instagram account on Friday (Sept. 22) to show his full support for the cause. Publishing a black and yellow graphic as his post, Bieber proudly professed his beliefs. “I am a white Canadian and I will never know what it feels like to be an African American,” he started the post's caption. 

Bieber continued: “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 God's children and we are ALL EQUAL.”

Take a look at the IG post from the star below. 

We're not sure what made Bieber suddenly feel the urge to do this now. But, we most definitely appreciate that he's using his star power to be a positive voice for change in society and to have the backs of people who need it. Hopefully, this will influence many of his fans to do the same. 

Thank you, Biebs.
