Another No Talent Entertainer Calls for Reparations
|Talent Challenged Rap |
This past Friday, rapper Azealia Banks unleashed a Twitter rant in which she demanded that the U.S. government fork over $100 trillion in reparations, reports the Daily News:
“ITS MY MONEY, AND I WANT IT NOWWWWW!!!!!!” Banks tweeted on Friday afternoon, after linking to stories from various newspapers describing the ways in which American Indians and Holocaust survivors have sought reparations from the American and German governments, respectively.
“Jews and Native Americans all got reparations because they organized. Please don’t let my ‘beef’ with hip-hop distract from what we need… To be focusing on. We are owed MAJOR F***ING BUCKS kids, MAJOR BUCKS.”Keep in mind that this lunatic happens to be worth $3 million and grew up attending posh music schools in Manhattan. If you wade through all of her deranged and rather racist tweets, you find her premise to basically be that a disturbing number of contemporary blacks drop out of school, kill each other, wind up in prison, amass zero wealth and frankly fail at life because the government allegedly never accommodated them for slavery:
"Stop making this about my ‘feelings’ because it’s not. This is about what the black people are legally OWED. Affirmative Action, Welfare and Medicaid are patronizing as hell if you ask me…. It’s like, ‘here, we built this entire economic superpower of a country off of your backs, so here’s a nickel for bread.’ At this point, it’s not even about race or cultural appropriation or any other that other annoying sh*t because the black youth has a bigger Battle to fight. More than we need to preserve our identity, we need to get our f*cking money. And I’m dead serious."
"Let these corny white people get their little black fantasies out, because they’re only put in place to distract us from the real issue. We need to get our money. F*ck all this other sh*t. A huge reparations payout would mean mass access to HIGH education for ALL blacks in this country. We could re-write the script."Notice how she mentions affirmative action, which itself is a racist policy that benefits blacks by hurting others, including Asians. Also notice how she mentions the “patronizing” nature of welfare. This despite the fact that blacks keep voting for the same Democratic stooges whose entire agendas revolve around passing out handouts left and right.
Plus, and this is key, handing out reparations (especially $100 trillion) to every single black person in the country would destroy the economy and thus rip opportunity and freedom away from everybody, including black Americans.
The people to whom reparations were owed are long dead; our duty is to the living, and to generations yet to come, and their interests are best served by liberty and prosperity, not by moral theater.
Fuk Off Azealia!
