Grammy-award winning rapper and outspoken Christian Lecrae said on Thursday that Americans speaking on someone else’s culture without understanding or attempting to learn about their perspective frustrates him.

“America is full of different cultures, yet it baffles me when the people with cultural differences, who rarely interact with each other on deep levels, have so much commentary on the others cultural perspective,” said Lecrae on Facebook.

“I don’t have any Moroccan friends and I couldn’t imagine trying to understand their cultural outlook on the world without having meaningful relationships with them,” the rapper added.

Lecrae said he spent months traveling to Native American reservations and learned a lot about their culture after making friends with some of them and hearing about their experiences.

By building meaningful relationships with these Native Americans, he was able to understand their perspective.

“Everyone who lives in America (or is Christian for that matter) does not see everything the same,” Lecrae continued. “But if you find yourself upset at someone’s outlook … that may need to be the very person you build a relationship. But what do I know? I’m just a rapper.”
