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?

WELL HE DID IT SO IF I DO IT
THEN IT'S ACCEPTABLE! (it kinda is for white male celebs). I dont live by that statement. i hold myself accountable for all the wrong i do! Its not right nor fair to reapetly punish a person by a mistake they made at 19 and drunk and high! his actions on that night are not acceptable... but to be judged only by your worst moment in life its simply too mich, my original point was that we are quick to move on when white celebs do wrong, we even make excusses for them. when that dude from lost slapped that female bus driver it was all 'ah so sad for him or he must be tired' and that was long after chris and suprize its all forgotten. wrong is wrong. lets just hold all people to the same standard or just not bother n be animals

Listen- if you are a Celeb, Politician, Football Player you are in the public eye and you can expect to be Booed! That money will help cushion the blow but since their shit is out there for all to see then I don't give a damn about ANY OF THEM or their excuses! Bus Driver slapped?? You lost me! Everyone is held to a standard and in my opinion, the reason you don't see whites doing this criminal shit is because they already know it won't be tolerated! A useless individual is still useless no matter the color!

Yes it is wrong for anyone to bear a woman BUT answer me this- why is pointing out what an alcoholic like Sheen not to mention a drug addict- how does that make it better for Brown? What is the attitude that says- WELL HE DID IT SO IF I DO IT THEN IT'S ACCEPTABLE!

Blacks are allllllways on the news here for crime. They like to steal and are one tv on Trutv and steal cars and stuff like that. The media needs to stop being racist and showing so many blacks as criminals because that makes people prejudiced against blacks. They should show more Asians, Indians and that stuff, less blacks as criminals!!

Well Charlie Sheen is an alcoholic and a drug addict and has his stupid stunts cost him..you bet they have..he used to make seven times the amount that he is making now..the same with all the others..do we excuse stupid behavior, take for instance Amanda Bynes and Lyndsey Lohan..I will never watch another one of their movies or buy one of their cd's..they all need to get help. You are in the public eye and so your actions shine more than others..but back to the orignial story..Jay-Z straigthened his shit out..and look at what he has to prove it all..Chris Brown just cries like a big ass baby and then wants to throw all the blame on someone else..they did bad too...see see..boohoo..Life is unfair..grow up..white or any other color

1. Whatever White Americans do is normal – no matter how high or low their
numbers, they commit crimes
at the proper rates. Always.
This is a given. Because there
is nothing wrong with them.
To think otherwise would be racist! They are the measure
against which everyone else
is judged. 2. Racialize crime – blame most of the crime on black
people. Even where whites
commit most of it. If
challenged, make it about the
crime rate: 3. Crime rate – Where white people commit most of the
crimes it is because most
people are white. How is that
wrong? But if blacks, who are
13% of America, commit
more than 13% of any crime, even 14%, it is because there
is something wrong with
them: 4. Higher black crime rates prove Criminal Tendencies – the great thing about
statistics is that they seem so
objective and yet get rid of
all the context: the drug
trade, racist policemen and
judges, bad policing, racial profiling, poverty, etc.
Context only matters when
white people do bad stuff.
When black people do bad
stuff, it is because something
is wrong with them. That is not racist, that is just Reality. 5. Interracial crime – for added effect compare black-on-
white crime to white-on-
black crime. This is especially
good for rape because of
white male sexual
insecurities and because the government report is
particularly misleading.
Black-on-white crime proves
what everyone already
knows: blacks are out to get
whites! No matter how low the absolute numbers. 6. Hispanics – If Hispanics are not separated from whites in
some statistic point that out
and state, without proof,
that non-Hispanic whites
(True White People) have a
lower crime rate. 7. Hate crimes – blacks commit most of the hate crimes.
Everyone knows it. Except
the FBI, whose numbers
clearly cannot be trusted. 8. Where African statistics are low they are wrong, where they are high repeat them. Rape or murder is low in
Senegal? They are bad at
recording crime. Do they
even have pencils over
there? Rape is high in South
Africa? It must be right. If anything it is probably
understated! 9. Genocide, slavery, blah, blah, blah – whites killed tens of millions of people of
colour to get to where they
are. But if anyone brings that
up just say it was too long
ago to count, that they need
to get over it. Or bring up Rwanda and use that as a fig
leaf. Wars past and present
are off the books too. So is
Wall Street. The only true
measure of how violent and
immoral a race is are the street crimes they commit in
an unjust society that favours
one race over another. 10. Why blacks disagree – not because you are wrong but
because they like to whine
and avoid responsibility, are
given to emotional Negro
thinking and have low IQs. If
they had bigger brains and were objective like you, they
would see the light – like
those Reasonable Negroes
they show on television

In reply- TRUE- Statistics can show what you want them to show! Yet, even a broke clock is right twice a day -meaning- ALL THE STATISTICS AND DATA cannot be wrong! Personally I don't give a damn about a piece black shit like Brown and dragging Jay Z into this still doesn't make that woman beating MF'er right. The common denominator in all this is VIOLENCE AND BLACK PEOPLE ARE VIOLENT! If there not wanting to fight they are talking about fighting, I can sit in a room with whites for a week and any talk of race will never be spoken but BLACKS will bring it up before the conversation is over! Black people are a problem because they are a prisoner to their own pathetic upbringing, blacks have communication problems and whites are following suits and those who do are outcast as well. Trash will congregate. See Miley Cyrus or Chris Brown and so many others.

In spite of the fact he may have misbehaved during his career, he's right about Jay Z. He's a guy treated like royalty today although when he was the age of Chris, he engaged in worse behavior of which he mentions his selling of drugs. Chris is trying to be a better person and should be encouraged in that direction rather than eternally put down.
