One of the most militant and pro-Black rappers of our generation says there’s a very good reason she prefers dating old, White men. Azealia Banks was asked about her dating choices by a fan on Instagram and offered this response:
“Because black men take black women for granted and I’m too busy with music to be fighting for my rights at home. I already have to fight for respect with black men in hip-hop so when I get home, I like things to be nice and easy. Make sense?”
The artist first made the revelation in 2012 during an interview with GQ magazine, saying, “I date lots of white guys. It’s still seen as slightly taboo in African American culture, but I thought, ‘Let me put this in your face and tell it how it is.'”
And in a 2014 interview with Dazed, she continued to praise White men in this extreme TMI moment. “White boys do eat p*ssy better than everyone else, though, I will say that. Maybe it’s those thin white-boy lips!”
Dating preference aside, Banks had no issue putting her naked body on display for everyone to see in the current issue of Playboy. To see some of the snaps, click here.
