The good news for Miguel? He didn’t leg drop anyone in the crowd during a performance this weekend.

But the artist did stir up controversy for a very different reason yesterday, Tweeting of his race and the stereotypes that surround it:

“Im proud of my heritage but honestly, black people are the most judgmental people in the world. S–ts sad man. we’ve been conditioned, pre-programmed to hate ourselves”

Miguel – whose father is Mexican and whose mother is African-American – did not give specific examples to back up his point, but did add:


“that’s why I appreciate those who choose to think and act for themselves regardless of ethnicity or culture. the problem can not be fixed until the problem is recognized. Not everyone is the same thank goodness. And obviously, I love all my fans.”

Perhaps sending he had said something controversial, Miguel then concluded:

“Of course EVERYONE is judgemental. I just PERSONALLY believe WE are the most critical of our own”

Interesting. What do you make of Miguel’s comments?
