Looks like Azealia Banks is back at it again.
After hearing the incident with Jussie Smollett, Azealia Banks is now chiming in. She believes that the incident might be used to control the Black vote through “emotionality” and identity politics.
Banks posted her feelings on her Instagram story saying “Sorry… this is all promotion for the next season of empire/propaganda to make sure black for the DNC next go around”. She continued her rant by adding “Loads of black people didn’t vote at all in the 2016 election which worked in Trump’s favor.”
Most people think Banks is out of her mind, but her statements are backed up with facts on this topic. Vox reported: “The black voter turnout rate declined for the first time in 20 years in a presidential election, falling to 59.6% in 2016 after reaching a record-high 66.6% in 2012.”
Banks feels Smollett’s call for his community to be “Gayer and Blacker” and his spreading of this message through media is just another case of “democratic strategy to keep control over the black vote exploiting our Uber-emotional self-pride.”
Banks then goes on to tell her followers vote for the GOP and to definitely avoid the strong holds of Hollywood.
