Popular hip-hop artist Lecrae, who continues to top the charts and win awards, said after speaking out about the social unrest going on in America and battling depression, he realized something needed to change.

Since the killings of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling by police officers, Lecrae openly became an advocate for racial reconciliation. But despite his efforts, the Texas native was greatly misunderstood for his position, even by fellow Christians, and in the newest issue of Relevant magazine he explains how the whole experience affected him.

“I think as a Christian, people expect you to be desensitized, and that’s just not reality. We’re not a bunch of sanitized people; we’re people with issues and struggles, people with addictions. You can’t talk about those types of issues because they’re extremely taboo,” he said.

“Beyonce creates a whole album about the pain of an affair, be it real or not, and there were many women across the world who related to that. Why aren’t we writing those songs? Why aren’t we telling those stories?” he added. “Why can’t I talk about what it’s like to be a black man in America? Because people say, ‘Oh, no! That’s too black.’”
