Chris Brown Likens Himself to Trayvon Martin, Says Jay Z Gets a "Pass"

by at .  Updated at . Comments

In a new interview with JET, Chris Brown compares himself to Trayvon Martin and says that Jay Z, despite his own shady past, gets a pass from the media.

The star, claiming shared experiences with Martin, says, “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 n--gas,” Brown adds.

As for his reputation, the singer claims he's unfairly singled out.

“No disrespect, because I’m a fan, but nobody brings up the fact that [Jay Z] stabbed somebody and sold drugs,” observes Brown. “He gets a pass.”

Regardless of how you feel about that comparison, Brown’s anger issues are well-documented, and he says he's worked hard to overcome them:

“You have to go through the struggle before you can get to the good part. I don’t try to last out at people, or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be.”

Overwhelmed by scrutiny, Brown feels as if he’s been pushed over the edge, and appears to liken himself to a slave with the following comment:

“I got to the point where it’s only so much you can take from the master, you feel me?” he asks JET. “I’ve taken my fair share of lashings.”

Regarding the unending Rihanna and Karrueche situation, he says, "Relationships are the most difficult part" for him, but he's handled them like a man.

"I was honest with those two girls and I put out that video (above)," he says.

Brown, who calls himself single now, admits, "My ex and I broke up because of the 'situation' and she had moved on. I fell in love with another girl."

"Then my ex came back, so it was like, 'What is a man to do?'"

"I told them both the truth. I didn’t do the sucker role." 

What do you think of Chris Brown's comments regarding Rihanna, Karrueche, Jay Z and Trayvon Martin, the unarmed teen who was shot and killed in 2012?

Only a woman beating, tattooed rapper, race card player, Obama voting, trash talking, never learning asshole would try and profit emotional support from the death of that black boy with hopes of gaining sympathy from the public. This punk must be related to Al Sharpton! I guess he lives with the thought of never letting a tragedy go by unless you can benifit from it. Any fan of this punk bitch is sewer waste.
