The One Story: HBCUs And The Gatekeeping Of Black Culture

Azealia Banks is notorious for her Twitter tirades. But the young rapper might’ve gone too far recently though, directing her vitriol toward former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.

On Tuesday, a satirical social media story drew Azelia’s ire. The story, which later turned out to be a joke, claimed that Palin said “black people enjoyed slavery.” Azealia was none too pleased by the alleged statement.

That was only a mere sample of the speech she directed toward Sarah. Sarah would take to social media to let her feelings be known on what was said.

After Azealia discovered the article was fake, she issued an apology.

“Dear Sarah Palin,

I hope this message reaches you in good spirits and in good health. I want to start this letter off by telling you that I actually, really like you. While many other American people may see you as someone to be ridiculed, I truly believe that you possess a certain “je ne sais quoi,” (a french term which is often interpreted to denote one’s inexplicable charisma.) Given a bit of book-reading/media-training/patience, that charisma could become your magic carpet. There is something very charismatic and misunderstood about you. The misunderstood bit oftentimes reminds me of myself.”

You can read the rest of the apology here.

Rather than leave the situation at that however, Azealia responded to the news that Sarah Palin would sue her.

Azealia better hope she’s right. What do you think? Sound off in comments.
