Rapper Azealia Banks has been in the media lots lately thanks to her ongoing feud with Iggy Azalea, but even though she’s currently taking a break on taking shots at Iggy on Twitter, she’s now calling out the country for not giving black people reparations.
In a series of tweets, Azealia Banks argues that reparations were never given because they are the one thing black people needed to have equal footing in the country (read tweets from bottom to top):
Does she do anything else besides tweet?
Yes, rap. And she’s dope.
First y’all get mad when black artists don’t speak up for black people, then when they do y’all want them to be quiet. Y’all don’t know what the hell y’all want.
She told no lies. She annoys me but she can speak the truth when she wants to.
I can only imagine the white tears that were in her mentions.
Reparations are never going to happen. But it sickens me to know some black people actually disagreed with her on this. Some of us have really been brainwashed.
I really want her to win, but to do that she’s going to have to use this attention to sell her music.
She not lying at all I will never forget what my history teacher told us he couldn’t come up with a legitimate reason as to why Japanese Americans got reparations and African Americans didn’t and this is coming from a white middle aged male smh. Say whatever you want about Azealia be she is no dummy.
I respect it. These tweets & J cole interview with Angie Martinez raises my vibration
She’s about to be blacklisted.
Azealia Banks is the new Heather B!!!
She told no lies.
