Kendrick Lamar touched on an array of topics in his new Billboard cover story -- from his thoughts on Iggy Azalea to his new album -- but there's one comment in particular that caught the attention of Azealia Banks, and it had nothing to do with the "Fancy" MC.
"I wish somebody would look in our neighborhood knowing that it's already a situation, mentally, where it's f---ked up," K. Dot said. "What happened to [Michael Brown] should've never happened. Never. But when we don't have respect for ourselves, how do we expect them to respect us? It starts from within. Don't start with just a rally, don't start from looting -- it starts from within."
Banks was less-than-impressed with that viewpoint, and called his comments about respect the "dumbest sh-- I've ever heard a black man say."
She then went on to explain why she felt that way.
"HOW DARE YOU open ur face to a white publication and tell them that we don't respect ourselves...." she added. "Speak for your f--king self."
"Once on the side of feeling like black people ain't sh-- because that's what America and my social studies textbooks taught me," she said. "Becoming an adult and doing my own research has REALLY opened up my f--king eyes, and I get upset to know that.....There are still young black kids in our public schools being indoctrinated with the same sh-- they pumped into my head. And f--k all this sh-- about erasing racial barriers and getting along... Why does white America think blacks even wanna be here?!"
"I really just want my f--king reparations, and want you guys to stop killing my sons and telling my daughters they're ugly," she concluded. "You can hate me and call my n----r all you want, because chances are I probably think you are a cracker too."
