“I hate everything about this country.”
That’s how Azealia Banks, the 23-year-old Harlem-born rapper, started out her interview for her Playboy cover story.
In her 10-page spread, Banks goes on to explain exactly what it is about America that she hates, from “fat white Americans” to the singer Lorde, who Banks implies can get away with running her mouth without seeming angry because of her skin color.
Banks said she her hatred for the country comes from “fat white Americans…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.”
But clearly she doesn’t hate the freedom of speech.
“Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma — that’s really America.”
“Lorde can run her mouth and talk shit about all these other bitches, but y’all aren’t saying she’s angry,” Banks said.
“If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner.”
Banks, who dropped out of high school, said she could write a book on why “black people shouldn’t be Christians.”
“Young black kids should have their own special curriculum that doesn’t start from the boat ride over from Africa. All you know as a black kid is we came over here on a boat, we didn’t have anything, and we still don’t have anything.”
Her cover story and the rest of her interview goes on stands March 20.
