Bob Marley’s eldest son Ziggy Marley explains why he said he is not black.

Bob Marley’s eldest son Ziggy has elucidated his debatable statement singing that he is not black.

The Reggae star recently received backlash after he sensationally claimed he was not black during a Facebook post, which is based on his controversial song, “I Am A Human.”

According to , fans just misunderstood the broader message he is trying to convey as he doesn’t identify himself as black or white but rather as a human being.

Sources say the singer sees himself as a black man of African ancestry, but chooses to be identified as a human being.

“We are all humans whether you’re black, white, brown, or purple, and that is just what he is saying ‘I am human,” the source explained.

The singer made the controversial statements while he was promoting his self-titled album, which was released in 2016. The project is centered around the themes of love and unity among the human race.

I am a human
Haven’t I suffered for so long?
Still the reason for hope
Keep on holding on

I am a human
Well, I am a child like her
And if you look into my eyes
Deep down there’s a light

I’m not a Christian, I’m not a Muslim
I’m not a Jew, it shouldn’t matter to you
I’m not a capitalist and I’m not a communist
I’m not a socialist, I’m not the politics
Tell me, are these the reasons, you can’t live right?

I am a human
Haven’t I suffered for too long?
Still the reason for hope
Keep on holding on

I am a human
Yes, I’m a child like her
And if you look into my eye
Deep down there’s a light

I’m not a soldier, I’m not a jihadist
I’m not a Buddhist, I’m not a Hindu
I’m not a “what”, I am a “who”
I’m not black, and I’m not white
Tell me, if this is why we fight?

I am a human
Haven’t I suffered for so long?
Still the reason for hope
Keep on holding on

I am a human
Well, I am a child like her
And if you look into my eyes
Deep down there’s a light

I’m not a Christian, I’m not a Muslim
I’m not a Jew, it shouldn’t matter to you
I’m not a capitalist and I’m not a communist
I’m not a socialist, I’m not the politics
Tell me, are these the reasons, you can’t live right?

I, I, I, I
I am a human
Haven’t I suffered for too long?
Still the reason for hope
Keep on holding on

I am a human
Yes, I’m a child like her
And if you look into my eye
Deep down there’s a light

I am a human
Haven’t I suffered for so long?
Still the reason for hope
Keep on holding on

I am a human
Well, I am a child like her
And if you look into my eyes
Deep down there’s a light
