(via ZIP at Weasel Zippers) -- 'Making millions of dollars despite having zero talent counts as reparations in my book.'
Via Red Alert:
Rapper Azealia Banks is well-known for her rage-filled rants about race relations and how Iggy Azalea is a cultural appropriator. For her April “Playboy” cover, she dished on how she hates America—particularly middle America, which she imagines as a swarm of “racist conservative white people who live on their farms.”
“Do you want to leave the U.S.?” asked her interviewer, Rob Tannenbaum.
“Yes! I hate everything about this country,” she replied. “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.”
When asked about why she focuses so much on race, she answered like this:
Because y’all motherf—s still owe me reparations! [laughs] That’s why it’s still about race. Really, the generational effects of Jim Crow and poverty linger on. As long as I have my money, I’m getting the f— out of here and I’m gonna leave y’all to your own devices.
