NEWS: Christian Rapper Lecrae Still Fighting with Fans Who Want Him to Remain Silent on Race.


After getting blasted by fans for a Fourth of July tweet about what enslaved Africans were doing on the date in 1776, Black Christian rapper Lecrae has found himself in the middle of another social media firestorm.

 This time, the outspoken star shared a lengthy message about #BlackLivesMatter on Instagram.

 The July 7 post was in response to Philando Castile’s death in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. The 32-year-old was fatally shot by a police officer during a traffic stop when he reached for his wallet to hand over his license.


Referring to his position as the father of a Black son – along with two other children – the artist says he will “never stop” sharing his point.

After criticizing the #AllLivesMatter hashtag as being “extremely selfish,” Lecrae tears into Christians who say “preaching the gospel is all we need.”

“[It] ignores how sin affects infrastructures and societal systems. They project blame on themselves when they see these kinds of posts,” he wrote before taking aim at those who “assume my anger is at white people and not white supremacy.”

“No there are many ‘woke’ white folks out here. Allies and friends,” the rapper added. “But if you ever trusted in anything I’ve said, if you’ve used my words to stir your hope or joy, then trust that same voice now.

 This is an epidemic that school books or church services haven’t taught you.”

After telling fans he’ll still love them if they decide to unfollow, many have continued to take issue with #BlackLivesMatter, ignoring the problem with #AllLivesMatter.

User phser_man17 claimed only saying “Black lives matter” was racist.
