T.I. has always been an advocate for the black community and while they appreciated this, his other fans don't seem to be that happy reading his latest post. Some of his fans and followers are bashing him for only focusing on dark-skinned people.

People are very upset in the comments as you will see below.

Somoene said: 'You talk a whole lot about segregation in this country.. but yet you do a whole lot of segregating yourself.. 🤔'

Another follower bashed Tip and posted this: 'Dam bruh are you all about just African Americans? Or unity and equality of all people? I can understand the whole preaching empowerment to the African American community seeing as you are apart of that yourself however from what I’ve seen on your posts and words it seems as if you ONLY seem to talk highly of that specified demographic of people as opposed to using your social influence on equality for all. I have been a fan since you came out, follow and support you and as a minority, myself in this great beautiful Country one can’t take how you present yourself as someone who ONLY believes in “Black excellence”. Correct me if my perspectives wrong?'

A person also wrote: 'Not just black men but all real men🤙🏽🤙🏽🤙🏽'

Someone else said: 'One day hopefully we’ll all live in peace together! Cause there’s really only one race and that’s the human race.'

A follower told Tip that 'People like this is the real reason certain types of black people are always screaming racial stuff.'

One Instagrammer told Tip that they lost their respect for the rapper: 'You're so concerned about your people so why aren’t you supporting Trump. The Left has held the black community down for sooo long. Trump wants the black community to stop being controlled and held down. He wants more black owners & more black businesses. The left wants everyone on welfare. They want to control u. Look up what Malcom X said about Liberals. No sane person would vote for the Democrats. They started the KKK. You have lost all my respect- if you really cared about America u would be supporting Trump. Very sad.'

Somoene said: 'A BLACK man cant show LOVE and APPRECIATION for other BLACK men without other races feeling UNCOMFORTABLE and needing to be included even when they enjoy and benefit from a whole SYSTEM of comfort and Privileges from NOT being BLACK 365 days a year. 🗣HE SAID BLACK MEN AND THAT'S WHO HE MEANT.'

What do you think about Tip's post and the people's reactions?

    I support TI I see nothing wrong with what he said. The black man is the one that is a target he's just talking to the brothers trying to set them straight every thing he said is true. Now that person that said he should support 45 you must of bump ed your head. He is the biggest racist around. He has done absolutely nothing for the. Black or Brown community.

    T.I. Being that so many black men were raised by mothers or grandmothers, they need your example and encourage ment. Keep pulling your brothers up and letting them know that they count and that they are important. They shouldn't want to become a number!! So T.I. continue to do your thang!!! I pray for you and your beautiful family. 🙏❤

    I appreciate and understand the message T.I. conveyed to our race of men. Men of color has always been ostracized from their looks to their behaviors. If we as a black nation do not uplift what's ours-that we have left(WHO THE HELL WILL)! Non -color races speak on subjects they have no experience or exposure about the struggles of being a person of color. They haven't because they are not of color. I could careless about what they have seen-the point is(have you lived the life of a black man)? Have you been outcast b/c of the blackness of your skin etc. The list goes on. This is not about race, it's about empowerment of the black man. Non- color people chill out. You want recognition-recognize this Everything's not about you! Take several seats!

    I feel just my opinion he addresses black men because they need more encouragement then other races because they've been through more than other races stop taking things so personal blacks can't never have a cumbyya momment without others sticking their noses in damn up lift your race to not be prejudice against others and there wouldn't be no need to address such matters.
