Chris Brown - Chris Brown claims he faces 'blatant racism'

Chris Brown says he still faces ''blatant racism''.

The outspoken rapper explained he has sympathy for African American teenager Trayvon Martin - who was fatally shot in February 2012 by neighbourhood watch coordinator George Zimmerman - and he insisted racial discrimination has become ''normal''.

He told the October issue of Jet magazine: ''I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism.

''This generation is so used to racism that it's normal; we don't care. We aren't on drugs or catching AIDS, but they still look at us as n****s.''

The 'Don't Wake Me Up' hitmaker - who assaulted his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 - also insisted he is learning to overcome his anger issues, while insisting he has been the victim of his ''fair share of lashings.''

He added: ''You have to go through the struggle before you can get to the good part.

''I don't try to lash out at people, or be as mad or impulsive as I used to be ... I got to the point where it's only so much you can take from the master, you feel me? I've taken my fair share of lashings.''
