Is this who today's youth idolize? Female rapper says she hates America and 'racist conservative white people who live on their farms' in the middle of it

Rebel Staff

Female rapper Azealia Banks has drawn a lot of criticism over her recent interview with Playboy magazine.

In it, the 23-year-old from New York reveals she hates America. In fact, she hates everything about it and plans to leave.

“I hate everything about this country. 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,” she said.

“Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma — that’s really America,” Banks stated before going onto talking about race.

“Black people need reparations for building this country, and we deserve way more f***king credit and respect,” she said.

“It's always about race. Lorde can run her mouth and talk sh*t 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. Really, the generational effects of Jim Crow and poverty linger on. As long as I have my money, I'm getting the f**k out of here and I'm gonna leave y'all to your own devices.”

Azealia Banks has over 500,000 Twitter followers. There is no telling on what the reception will be when she performs her next concert in the country she hates so much.

This is why my children will never bring “crap” into my house.

Yet another product of America’s declining educational system – learn clichés, spew them without any regards to context or facts, assume you are saying something intelligent!!!

So is she racist? Openly prejudice? No she is rightly justified to speak her opinion! But reverse her color to white and talk like that about the opposite of white, and it would be headline news, all major media outlets, and she would eventually sink into oblivion.

I don’t think anyone is stopping her from leaving!

Every one has the right to their opinion, and the right to express that opinion.. no matter how idiotic and ill-informed that opinion might be. That’s the American way! What? She’s leaving America?…. OK, Bye!

I believe this rapper should live in Iran, China or North Korea.

She s free to talk nonsense is because she lives in America.

Thank you

Total nobody. Just don’t look. Just don’t look.

Black people are far more racist than white people ever could be. This is just more proof of that.

“I hate everything about this (America) country…I’m getting the f**k out of here…”
Hey Maude! Hey Pam.! Hey Leticia!
You got room for this member of the Modern Intelligentsia in your Council of Canadians?
Sounds like she’s got the right stuff!

Okay Azealia, don’t let the door hit you butt on the way out.

This performer brings up the rear of black American gangsta rap music culture that is in its death throes being replaced by much more uptown mixed-race funk.

Banks has left the building. Please, Miss Banks, leave the west.

Never heard of Azealia Banks before, but from what little I have seen, it would be a good thing that she would leave to save the kids from exposure to all her smut. I understand that ISIS is recruiting.

So when she is broke and looking for handouts, and that day will come as her 15 minutes is nearly up, I wonder how she is going to think about white america supporting her ass. I really do hopes she goes some place where there is no social safety net. Go see how long you and your stupid foul-mouth last when you “ain’t gots no money”.
commented 2015-03-17 16:04:53 -0400
She just offended at least half her ticket buyers, good luck keeping you money.
Bye and good riddance!!!

" Following her father’s death, Banks says that her mother “became really abusive—physically and verbally. Like she would hit me and my sisters with baseball bats, bang our heads up against walls, and she would always tell me I was ugly. I remember once she threw out all the food in the fridge, just so we wouldn’t have anything to eat.” Due to escalating violence, Banks moved out of her mother’s home at age 14 to live with her older sister." YET she was GIVEN many opportunities few children get and then “As a teenager she trained in the performing arts at the LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts in Manhattan.” So having an abusive BLACK mother and lots of opportunities to better her life, all she can do is condemn white folks on farms who live miles out of her experience…and condemn America that gave her a leg up…. listen, kid…don’t blame white folk for your problems and if you want to see racism, look in the mirror.

Clearly the word “racist” has lost all meaning.
commented 2015-03-17 15:00:04 -0400
Hope she stays out of Canada with an attitude like that……

Not very bright, did her manager tell her to say that shit.
