Azealia Banks is not a fan of the March for Our Lives movement.
The “212” rapper wrote a now-deleted lengthy rant about the recent student-led protests on Instagram, but Rhymes with Snitch captured the post.
She writes, “Miss me with the b******t. As if you’d see my black a** at some rally for gun control when everyone ignored every advance made by black youth to speak out about police violence ….. in fact … those advances were met with even MORE Police violence.”
“Black people have been protesting gun violence for ever!! I don’t see any of these kids as heroic or brave, when black kids have been fighting the good good fight for ages.”
“There were no police in riot gear at this march for our lives joint but let there be more than 15 n*****s on a corner … the cope are pulling up with tasers and tear gas,” Azealia adds.
She goes on to write, “This ain’t a battle of the struggles, but I have to save my voice for the causes that matter most to me, which are black America-centric.”
“White America’s obsession with guns is white americas problem. Let the liberals and the conservatives battle it out… tired of helping left white american fight for their causes while they ALWAYS turn blind eye to ours. I’m still waiting for a Democratic politician to issue an official apology for slavery… .”
The March for Our Lives protests that took place Saturday drew tens of thousands of participants across the country.
The rallies were organized by high school students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, where a gunman killed 17 people on Valentine’s Day.
