When it comes to the topic of race relations, outspoken Christian rapper Lecrae is striking a note that resonates with some of his fans but might leave others covering their ears.

In an op-ed published by Billboard on Friday, the Grammy award-winning artist once again spoke out against racism, insisting that harmony and understanding require humility following the police shooting deaths of Louisiana resident Alton Sterling and Philando Castile of Minnesota, and the subsequent killing of five Dallas police officers — Brent Thompson, Patrick Zamarripa, Michael Krol, Lorne Ahrens and Michael Smith — at the hand of a black sniper who said he was targeting white officers.

The music producer referred to an excerpt from a TEDx Talk in which he explained that everyone has a story and a crucial step toward trying to relate to one another is understanding those stories. Doing so, however, takes some humility.

“I think that it takes humility to hear another person’s vantage point, especially when you believe the one that you have is correct,” Lecrae said.
