RAPPER AZELEA BANKS IS SPEAKING FOR EVERYONE..GET OVER IT
BY UEN BOSS
If you were comatose you missed the various twitter wars between rapper Azelea Banks and Iggy AND Action Bronson. These wars are different..they speak to a different time, place, energy, and meaning. Azelea Banks is a African-american woman. She speaks from the heart..sometimes by shooting first asking later..but its real. She is calling our hip-hop and urban artist who are white that appropriate African-american music, but are quiet when it comes to social issues concerning African-Americans. Racism, police brutality, systemic racism, and a corrupt justice system all plague the African-american community. They are plagues that are constantly being put into place by white supremacy.
The hip-hop community and African-americans everywhere need to truly think about what Ms. Banks is talking about and understand why she is truly speaking for everyone.
