Azealia Banks waves the “Black banner” with raging bullets pointed at “fat white Americans”.
Banks, 23, also spewed venom at those “who are crunched into the middle of America.” Banks said that “the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms,” and she does not care.
“A lot of times when you’re a black woman and you’re proud, that’s why people don’t like you.”

The Playboy interview magnified Bank’s outspoken tweets and gave her more than 10 pages of ammunition. When asked about people’s reaction to her tactless statements, Banks replied, “It’s always about race. Lorde can run her mouth and talk sh-t about all these other b—hes, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner….y’all motherf–kers still owe me reparations!”

Banks also dissed Pharrell and Kendrick Lamar adding, “The race thing always comes up, but I want to get there being very black and proud and boisterous about it. You get what I mean? A lot of times when you’re a black woman and you’re proud, that’s why people don’t like you. In American society, the game is to be a non-threatening black person. That’s why you have Pharrell or Kendrick Lamar saying, “How can we expect people to respect us if we don’t respect ourselves?” He’s playing that non-threatening black man sh-t, and that gets all the white soccer moms going, “We love him.”
Even Kanye West was not spared. “Please accept me, white world,” Banks said of Kim Kardashian’s husband.
By Banks’ standard, only rapper Jay Z stood true to his roots. “Jay Z hasn’t played any of those games, and that’s what I like,” she said.
