I'll be the first to admit that I've never heard of Azealia Banks until today. I'm from the so-called 'Generation X', a few years younger than the 'Brat Packers'. But this caught my attention, the viral story about a 23 year-old black female rapper who tweeted that she "might have to kill one of these crackers in their sleep!!" I wanted to learn more about this so I went to Bank's twitter account (@AZEALIABANKS), saw the series of posts in their entirety, and actually put the tweets in context. Granted there is never any excuse for genuine racial hatred and violence, as that opposes the laws of Jesus Christ, who taught us to "love your neighbor as yourself." But social media is an interesting cultural phenomenon, where I believe that people should be able to rant once in a while without being immediately scolded and condemned by the "politically correct' thought police.

Paul Joseph Watson of PrisonPlanet.com made a youtube video entitled ''Rap Star Jokes About Killing Crackers In Their Sleep'' in response to Bank's comments, which went viral. Watson asked Banks that if black lives matter, why she doesn't speak out against the hundreds of thousands of abortions which snuff out the lives of black babies every year. She tweeted back to Watson with profanity and said that abortion has nothing to do with the topic of Ferguson, to which Watson replied that she avoided the real issues. I'll preface this by saying that I like Watson's work and have greatly appreciated his research and articles for years. However, in this case, Watson neglected to point out something very important regarding Bank's initial comments which would have put her controversial comments in a more proper context. Instead, it was turned into an overly-sensational controversy which only seemed to incite more racial anger on both sides and in the comment sections of twitter, youtube and instagram.

Banks had initially begun ranting about police abuse and said it makes her "feel such a general hatred for all straight white men," continuing "It makes absolutely no sense.... But it is how I feel... And what makes it even worse is the fact that I sleep with white men..... LOL ...I might have to kill one of these crackers in their sleep !!" One minute later Banks added "Lol, I'm joking," and said "But something seriously has to be done about this shit. I don't want to hear about another unarmed black kid being shot by the damn cops." None of these follow-up comments were included in Watson's critque of Banks; and none of the additional follow-up comments have been reported in the alternative or mainstream media, so here they are below. But first a recap with the text of her initial comments:

  • I hate when these police violence things happen. 10:35 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • I know it's so fucked up but these things just make me feel such a general hatred for all straight white men. 10:38 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • It's a burning anger. 10:38 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • I just start thinking the worst most racist things about white people when these things happen and I can't help it, I'm sorry. 10:40 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • It makes absolutely no sense.... But it is how I feel 10:42 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • And what makes it even worse is the fact that I sleep with white men..... LOL 10:45 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • I might have to kill one of these crackers in their sleep !! 10:47 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • Lol, I'm joking 10:48 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • But something seriously has to be done about this shit. I don't want to hear about another unarmed black kid being shot by the damn cops. 10:50 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • It's so discouraging, just as a young black person, to know that people like me can be murdered and have there be no real justice.(ctnd) 10:52 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • Or CONSIDERATION for your life 10:53 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • It's almost as if the 3/5ths Clause still exists. 10:53 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • I'm sorry if I've offended anyone with my Black-Kunt-Supremifeminism tonight. It was not my intention to hurt anyone. 10:58 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • Oh, to be clear I wasn't apologizing for the tone of the rant, just for the joke about killing crackers in their sleep LOL. Goodnight y'all 11:03 PM - 24 Nov 2014
  • In subsequent posts Banks stated "Racial Conversation is actually REALLY REALLY healthy I think. Its important to communicate and share our ideas and feelings with each other. No matter how right, wrong, gross, or radical the IDEAS are. . . They are only ideas! Just pay your taxes and keep your hands to your self!" She went on to critque the NYPD, asking "Why are NYC cops so fucking bloodthirsty?! .... seriously. Come the fuck on now. NYC cops shouldn't have guns... Just give them tasers and iPads like they have in the UK. NYC should have CCTV like London, because this police-shooting-unarmed-"suspects" shit is getting yet of control."

    The rapper also told fans how she had bought two live twenty-five pound turkeys and was going to personally kill them for thanksgiving dinner: "If you are brave enough to eat a turkey you should be brave enough to kill it yourself." She then tweeted how she butchered, plucked and marinated the two live turkeys in her bathtub for her thanksgiving dinner celebration. "It was honestly probably the most disgusting thing i've ever done in my life, but I love taking the xtra step. Exercising my survival skills," she said.

    In another series of Nov. 25th tweets, Banks remarked "I just the white people in my mentions would stop being so selfish. Stop trying to make everything about you. It's not about you. it's about Me and Us (Black folk). Of course that's what I get for posting on a public forum, but you guys REALLY aren't invited to join this discussion. *grabs American flag* *pirouette's away from you* *hhmph*"

    Banks continued "Lol do u think all the cute white boys wont wanna date me now because they think I'm gonna kill them in their sleep?!... THAT MOMENT WHEN UR SARCASM IS SO ADVANCED THAT PEOPLE ACTUALLY THINK YOU ARE STUPID IS THE BEST."

    She then elaborated on the origin of the phrase 'cracker:' "And to be fair... *AHEM* the use of the words "cracker" in reference to white is not a comment on the color of skin..... (Ctnd)... So much as it was used as a term to describe someone who cracks a whip. ... So u guys can stop talking about the color of your skin now." She added "Yes, Azealia Banks needs to be the topic of discussion at the next KKK rally. Can I be Miss KKKamaraderie ?"

    Several posters on twitter acknowledged that they 'got' Bank's joke about killing the 'crackers' she slept with and responded in kind, with the following: "i'd totally date you and just sleep with an eye in the back of my head... I want to date you BECAUSE you want to kill me in my sleep... I would date you even if you'd kill me afterwards... I got the joke, and would totally let you sleep with me, but only if you wore that maxipad/lifejacket thing in your photo... i'd totally date you and just sleep with an eye in the back of my head." One, however, said "damn azealia, i like you and wish you could just shut the fuck up sometimes. you really have 2 go that extra mile dont you?"


    On Nov. 26, Banks posted an instagram photo of herself and a white photographer in which Banks remarks "This guy is gonna get killed in his sleep tonight @guyeppel". The photog is described on his instagram channel as "Guy Eppel Photographer of Magic moments. http://www.guyeppel.com." That post prompted more arguments among users, the most interesting being the following:

    errybody4kel: IF YALL DONT GET THE FUCK ON COMMENTING ON HER PAGE! Anything & everything she says y'all always gotta comment on it like STFU! Know that Miss @azealiabanks has no filter & is forever saying off the wall shit and could careless about y'all mad ass "crackers" coming at her! Yes we still call y'all crackers just like y'all still call us niggers.... So please find something else to do.

    outlawstark9: @errybody4kel You mad bro? You are seriously insecure to be this racist.

    errybody4kel: Lmao me? Mad at what? Insecure about what? @outlawstark9 I'm proud of who I am. I know where my roots are from. Do you? You don't even know me to call me a racist. Y'all sitting over here attacking Azealia because she called y'all out. It's true. Most of y'all are monsters and the fact that y'all are so brainwashed by your ancestors disgust me.

    outlawstark9: @errybody4kel If you had any idea what was really going on behind the scenes in this country you'd know all Americans Black, White, Latino, Asians are brainwashed by the government. I was in a combat position in the military, I fought side by side with other races and we are still brothers to this day, when I hear anyone talk that way even if there white, I set them straight, bc that is undeniable ignorance and insecurity.

    errybody4kel: @outlawstark9 well I'm not insecure nor am I ignorant. My views of other people are different from your way of viewing. Me sharing my opinions don't necessarily make em ignorant. Ignorance is lacking of knowledge. I have knowledge that there are some good & bad white people. And just not whites. All people. I commend you for your services and respect the fact that you say what's right. You can't deny that there we still call white people crackers as whites calls us niggers. Like I've stated before I'm not mad. I didn't like the fact how people are searching up her page just to throw hate on it. I was pointing out that Azealia is her. She's always brash and blunt. She might not put herself in the "best light" but she's been doing this for years. I just learned to get use to it.

    outlawstark9: @errybody4kel I feel ya, best of luck to you...

    In a 2013 interview, Banks was quoted as saying:

    "It's kinda bullshit, I feel it's kinda like hypocritical. For some reason this word faggot is still so offensive, it's just strange to see why. There are all kinds of people who are against the N-word in hip hop music, there are all kinds of people who are against hip hop music in general because they see it as a negative influence on African American culture, you know what i mean? Why are all these other things like murder and sex and violence and all these other things accepted, but as soon as I call one gay white man a faggot, his feelings are more important.. Freedom of speech, you know, and with freedom of speech comes the freedom to be offended, you know? Fuck being a faggot, fuck being a nigger. Fuck being whatever. There are such bigger problems.. and then you've got organizations like GLAAD, which are fucking complete bullshit. I mean let's look at it, it's gay and lesbian alliance against defamation, or whatever.. that's what it stands for, right? I mean would you agree that homosexuals, and the homosexual community, have bigger problems than the word faggot, you know what I mean? Some people are Satanists, some people are Christians, some people are Jews, Buddhists, you know what I mean? Some people are still Nazis.. there are some people who are still KKK members.. Come on people, please. If you're trying to call me a homophobe, you're basically trying to imply that I'm insulting you for having sex with men. I have sex with men too - what the fuck?"
