"When you rip a people from their land, from their customs, from their culture - there's still a piece of me that knows I'm not supposed to be speaking English, I'm not supposed to be worshiping Jesus Christ. All this s--- is unnatural to me. People will be like, 'Oh, you're ignorant because you don't speak proper English.' No. This is not mine. I don't even want this s---, so I'm going to do whatever the f--- I want with this language. I'm going to call you a f-g or a cr----r or a b----."

Rapper Azealia Banks said in a recent interview with Playboy Magazine that she believes that worshiping Jesus Christ is "unnatural" and she "hates everything about this country."

The 23-year-old Harlem-born singer is proud of her views, even demanding reparations from the country that she proclaims to hate.

"I hate fat white Americans," Banks stated in the interview that accompanied her 10-page nude pictorial in the April edition of the magazine. "All the people who are crunched into the middle of America are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma - that's really America."

Banks went on to describe a childhood that involved punching a teacher at three years old. "People have always been scared of me," she said proudly. "We were playing house, and the lady was like, 'I'm a monster! I'm gonna eat your family!' I punched her right in the eye."

The profanity-filled interview goes deeper into Banks' history, showing that an abusive childhood at the hand of her mother is to blame for much of her current attitude. When Banks wrote in a school journal that she hated her white teacher, Banks' mother was called. "She found my journal and called my mother, who was embarrassed, because my mother used to say stuff like that - 'White people are the devil. Stay away from them.' That teacher was scared of me after that."

Banks then went on about how she believes that she deserves reparations for "the generational effects of Jim Crow and poverty." She says that once she has those reparations, she'll leave the country. "My little white fans will be like, 'Why do you want reparations for work you didn't do?'" she said. "Well, you got handed down your grandfather's estate and you got to keep your grandmother's diamonds and pearls and s---."

It was at this point that Banks begins to discuss her thoughts on how she doesn't believe that she should be worshiping Jesus Christ. "When you rip a people from their land, from their customs, from their culture - there's still a piece of me that knows I'm not supposed to be speaking English, I'm not supposed to be worshiping Jesus Christ. All this s--- is unnatural to me. People will be like, 'Oh, you're ignorant because you don't speak proper English.' No. This is not mine. I don't even want this s---, so I'm going to do whatever the f--- I want with this language. I'm going to call you a f-g or a cr----r or a b----."

"In my adulthood I'm having to destroy all these things society really wants you to think," she continued. "The history textbooks in the U.S. are the worse if you're not white. Young black kids should have their own special curriculum that doesn't start from the boat right over from America."

Banks goes on to express what she says is America's demand for "nonthreatening black people" as a game that is to be played. "That's why you have Pharrell and Kendrick Lamar saying, 'How can we expect people to respect us if we don't respect ourselves?' He's playing that nonthreatening black man s---, and that gets all the white soccer moms going, 'We love him.' Even Kanye West plays a little bit of that game - 'Please accept me, white world.' Jay Z hasn't played any of those games, and that's what I like."
