Well, it had to happen: Poor, misunderstood crooner Chris Brown has compared himself to Trayvon Martin.

“I identify with Trayvon 100 percent as far as living in 2013 and still dealing with blatant racism,” he tells Jet magazine in the October cover story.

Brown somehow blames a lot of his woes on the fact that he’s not accepted by “white America” in the same way that Jay Z is, according to The Huffington Post.

“Nobody brings up the fact that he stabbed somebody and sold drugs,” Brown says of Jay Z. “He gets a pass.”

That’s actually a good point. Jay Z pleaded guilty to stabbing a record producer in 1999. Yet apparently being a woman-beater is worse to most of us.

Brown still doesn’t get it. All America wants is some humility.
