Rapper Azealia Banks, who generally uses controversy to sell her lackluster music, is at it again — this time disparaging America and “fat, white” people.
“I hate everything about this country,” the New York born rapper told Playboy Magazine. “Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma — that’s really America.”
And of course she believes that — despite her tremendous success considering her egregious lack of talent — she is a victim of racism.
“It’s always about race,” she said, comparing herself to white pop sensation Lorde.
“Lorde can run her mouth and talk shit about all these other b**ches, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner.”
“Yeah, I am loud and boisterous. And I am black, and I am a pain in your ass,” she added. “But I’m not really talking to you, and that’s what makes those people mad. You’re not invited to this conversation. This is not about you.”
The rapper who has been involved in feuds with Iggy Azalea, Lady Gaga, Pharrell, T.I, Lil’ Kim, Nicki Minaj and too many others to list she thinks she deserves reparations too.
“Why do I have to explain this to y’all?” she asked. “My little white fans will be like, ‘Why do you want reparations for work you didn’t do?’ Well, you got handed down your grandfather’s estate and you got to keep your grandmother’s diamonds and pearls and shit.”
She also thinks America’s school system is racist.
“Young black kids should have their own special curriculum that doesn’t start from the boat ride over from Africa. All you know as a black kid is we came over here on a boat, we didn’t have anything, and we still don’t have anything,” said the rich pop star.
Don’t be surprised if you haven’t heard any of these comments before, as mainstream media has focused on shots Azealia took at Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and Pharrell, as well as the fact that she likes older men because “they smell better.”
I wonder if Britney Spears made similar comments about black Americans whether the media would have glossed over that, too.
