Azealia Banks: Kanye wants white world's acceptance
Azealia Banks is a quote machine these days.
Banks landed the April cover of Playboy and declared her hatred for “fat white Americas,” “racist conservative white people who live on farms,” and “everything about” America.
She also had some not-so-subtle words for Kanye West, who Banks said longed for white people to like him and his music.
“In American society, the game is to be a nonthreatening black person,” she said. “That’s why you have Pharrell and Kendrick Lamar saying, ‘How can we expect people to respect us if we don’t respect ourselves?’ He’s playing that nonthreatening black man s—, and that gets all the white soccer moms going, ‘We love him.’ Even Kanye West plays a little bit of that game — ‘Please accept me, white world.’ Jay Z hasn’t played any of those games, and that’s what I like.”
Banks’ other comments on America were also startling.
“I hate fat white Americans,” Banks said. “All the people who are crunched into the middle 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.”
The rapper also threw some support behind the idea of reparations because her white fans get “handed down” their grandfather’s estate.
Never change, Azealia.
