Miguel is steady trooping through this whole “leg drop” fiasco. After being the target of countless memes and endless Twitter slander, the crooner is still walking around with his head up. However, he recently made some comments on Twitter about he felt the African-American community is overly critical. He wrote:

“Im proud of my heritage but honestly, black people are the most judgmental people in the world. Shits sad man … we’ve been conditioned, pre-programmed to hate ourselves … 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 … Of course EVERYONE is judgemental.”

In a followup interview with BBC’s Charlie Sloth, Miguel explained his comments and even took time to bust a live freestyle where he poked fun at his unforgettable Billboard Awards moment.

Watch Miguel’s interview and freestyle below…

(freestyle starts at 7:32mark)

“I think what is clear when you put it all in context is that I’m saying that we are judgmental of our own … If you take it out of context, I seem like I’m uneducated [but] I see more black people tearing down other black people than I see any other culture tearing down their own culture regardless of what they’re doing … I’m just talking about what I see, and how disappointed I am in that. I’m not judging my own people. That’s a fallacy. I’m merely … making a conversation of it.”
