Previously, a pastor named Louie Giglio was in a conversation with Chick Fil A CEO Dan Cathy and rapper LeCrae, and described white privilege as “white blessings.”
LeCrae said “First of all, I want you to know I wasn’t okay with it. Even as I sat there, I was very uncomfortable and I was processing on, like, ‘how do I — what do I say in light of this?’ It’s been a lot of times where as I’ve navigated white supremacy or racial injustice where I been trying to figure out where I wanted to lash out, honestly.” LeCrae noted that he ended up having a conversation with the pastor afterward, and said he told the pastor his views and perspective on the situation. Since then, LeCrae has faced backlash for his response to the comments. Now, LeCrae has addressed the backlash via Instagram.
