If rapper Azealia Banks is right and there’s no difference in the variations on the N-word, it’s like we learned nothing from Rachel Jeantel’s testimony during the George Zimmerman trial. For what it’s worth, Banks — who saw nothing wrong with calling blogger Perez Hilton a “messy faggot” — is considering dropping her own use of the N-word (except for in her raps, of course).
For now, we’ll let someone else see how cool and accepted it is. So, what else is on Banks’ mind?
If he was, that’s the first we’d heard of it.
@AZEALIABANKS is officially a moron. I tried to hang in there, because 212 is such a tune. But my god.

Let’s back up a bit to where this whole thread started this morning. Maybe that will give us some idea where this train of thought is headed.
