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?

The blacks are on the news for crime all the time. They need to censor some of that so it doesn't look like blacks are so criminalized. And they don't just take welfare and section 8 housing all the time either. Even though they have lots of kids outta wedlock, they still try to be good.

@ Cripty keep

What do you suggest ,that all news stations edit the crime tape so we can create the illusion that Blacks are not really the people who create most of the crime?? Anything else we can do? Howz about we buy all this motherfuc*ers a house and car! Would that be enough?

The fact that he compares himself to Trayvon shows what he douche is he . Trayvon was a victim just walking home when he was attacked by a nut case who in my opinion got away with cold blooded murder ...
Chris is a batterer with a bad temper !!

If your asking blacks to quit blaming whites for their misfortune then you are asking a lot. Why don't I ever hear Asian Americans bitch because they have no food? That's right- they saved their money and opened up their own stores. Hispanics- why are they screaming police brutality since there is a this so called racism in police departments. Blacks will always condemn whites and they will NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER EVER call out their own black brothers and sisters and so the story goes- they have nothing but bitterness to carry into tomorrow.

I think they pick on him too much too. I told my son, look out for the woman, because I have seen so many, that confronts, insults and goads a guy into hitting. I told him, no matter if she killed a puppy, it will always be, you in the wrong. I think this kid blew, he'll never blow again and people should lay off of him. I think Rihanna had some guilt to bear too. And no, I'm not saying he was right to do it, but let him who is 'without sin' keep throwing stones. I know and you know, we've ALL had our moments.
