Justin Bieber "feels bad" that George Floyd 's death took him to make him wake up to America's racism problem.

After the third-degree manslaughter of George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, Justin Bieber is feeling ashamed.

The conversation surrounding the issue has been continuous for the past week, as riots expanded all over America after the murder of unarmed police suspect Floyd at the hands of white Minneapolis officers.

The 26-year-old pop star and his model wife Hailey Baldwin talked about privilege with CNN analyst and activist Angela Rye that Baldwin posted on her Instagram account on Sunday.

“I’ve been feeling shame in the sense of like, why did it take these men being killed for me to almost take a blanket over my eyes. Why now? I do feel bad when it comes to that,”  admitted the "Sorry" singer.

Baldwin, captioned the video clip, “As a white woman, I know I am privileged, and I didn’t always understand what that really meant. I will never understand what it’s like to be racially profiled and targeted and wake up everyday uncertain if I could lose my life because of the color of my skin.

She further wrote, “I want to know better so I can do better and I will not stop asking these questions and having these conversations. I want to keep learning how to be an ally, and I refuse to keep walking through life being ignorant.”

She went on to encourage fans to have an open discussion and not to be scared to ask crucial questions in order to better themselves-even though some might criticize them.

"People get nervous to say the wrong thing, and I think this conversation is so healthy, because it's not about saying the wrong thing," she said."Even if we do say the wrong thing, getting corrected in love and respect and saying, 'I'm telling you this because we respect each other and I want you to understand'."

This week we had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with @AngelaRye. As a white woman, I know I am privileged, and I didn’t always understand what that really meant. I will never understand what it’s like to be racially profiled and targeted and wake up everyday uncertain if I could lose my life because of the color of my skin. Through this conversation with Angela I really just wanted to learn, to ask questions even if I thought they were the wrong question. I want to know better so I can do better and I will not stop asking these questions and having these conversations. I want to keep learning how to be an ally, and I refuse to keep walking through life being ignorant. #BlackLivesMatter
