Miguel Spurs Controversy With Tweets On Paganism & Race

Miguel comments on black people being "conditioned, pre-programmed to hate ourselves" while speaking on race.

California crooner Miguel seemed compelled to let loose a little social commentary via Twitter earlier in the week, and in the process spurred an online debate thanks to his somewhat controversial comments. The singer’s thoughts on ethnicity and culture began with a Tweet concerning those who wear the cross around their necks, as he referred to it as “a Pagan symbol” historically speaking.

Miguel later shared his thoughts on race as he referred to black people as being “the most judgmental people in the world” and also expressed his appreciation for “those who choose to think and act for themselves regardless of ethnicity or culture.”

In total, the singer sent out close to 10 Tweets addressing race and culture, although he didn’t interact with anyone directly during his brief Twitter vent.

Miguel released his debut album, All I Want Is You, in 2010 and has since appeared on records with Kendrick Lamar, Mariah Carey, and J. Cole. His most recent album, Kaleidoscope Dream, was released last year.
