You know what, I have defended Azealia Banks before. I have always felt like she was given a harder time than she deserved, and that people were too quick to throw anger in her direction. Well, not anymore! For someone who talks so much about the racism she’s faced and the hatred she feels in this country, you would think that she’d vote for someone who supports progressive change.
She not only voted for, but vocally supports the candidate who was endorsed by the KKK. It is truly mind-boggling. I am boggled.
Tuesday on Facebook, while many were mourning and consoling themselves, Banks wrote this celebratory message when Donald Trump became our president-elect:
“TRUMP BEAT THE MEDIA. THIS IS DEEPER THAN POLITICS. HE BEAT THE F*CKING MEDIA HE IS MY FUCKING HERO RIGHT NOW. I AM ELATED.”
A lot of Banks support for Trump seems rooted in her hate for Hillary Clinton. That doesn’t make her crazy, but a lot of fans seems to think so. She wrote, “If I'm mentally ill and can
a.) very accurately predict the outcomes of future events
b.) make incredible music
c.) be the catalyst for numerous GLOBAL conversations surrounding race & gender
D.) make an entire nation of people move from the comfort of my toilet seat
e.) truly make people stop and think, taking my ideas into their homes, classrooms, workplaces etc.
Then you all need to get some of this crazy. My voice is sooooo powerful. If I were actually crazy, and didn't make the slightest bit of sense.... you lot wouldn't be going crazy every time I say or do something. You all love Azealia Banks. You all hate Azealia Banks. That's power.”
No, Donald Trump has power. You have Facebook rants.
