Chris Brown says Jay Z is “getting a pass” for stabbing someone and even compares himself to Trayvon Martin.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Chris Brown painted Justin Bieber’s skateboard half pipe, surprising many since few know they’re such good friends.
But perhaps Chris Brown and Jay Z are not so buddy-buddy. Speaking to an interviewer from CNN, Chris Brown says Jay Z is getting a pass on his past misdeeds:
“This is something I’ve been dealing with for the past maybe five years. Anybody with a voice – Tupac, Michael Jackson, the Notorious B.I.G. – gets formatted … except maybe for Jay Z, who is accepted by White America because he shakes hands and kisses babies. No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that he stabbed somebody and sold drugs. He gets a pass.”
In the past, Chris Brown has been called a “woman beater” for his 2009 assault on Rihanna. But in 2001, Jay Z plead guilty to stabbing a record producer, and Chris Brown believes Jay Z got off too easy on this compared to how the media has portrayed Chris Brown since the Rihanna incident.
Chris Brown compares himself to Trayvon Martin, claiming an underlying racism is responsible for his treatment in the hands of the public eye:
“I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism. This generation is so used to racism that it’s normal; we don’t care. We aren’t on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as ni**as.”
Chris Brown says there is “only so much you can take from the master,” and he believes he’s already received his “fair share of lashings.”
Do you think Chris Brown’s Jay Z comments are fair to characterize himself as being like Trayvon Martin?
