Azealia Banks Says Lightening Her Skin Does Not Negate Her Views On Blackness

(AllHipHop News) Azealia Banks has admitted to lightening her skin and now states that what she has done is no different than other ways non-whites adopt Euro-centric features.

“What’s the difference between getting a nose job and changing your skin color? What’s the difference between getting a hair weave or changing your skin color? Nobody was upset when I was wearing 30-inch weaves and tearing out my edges. You guys loved it, but what is the difference? I don’t understand what the difference is,” Banks said in a video posted on Twitter.

In the video, she says her changes in hue have not negated her bold stances on the state of Blackness as it relates to race relations in America.
