Azealia Banks

Azealia Banks turned heads on Twitter again, openly discussing her religious beliefs as a practicing witch, a faith that has long promoted feminism.

Recently, Azealia Banks, a popular and often controversial rapper, stirred up some religious groups’ backlash with a tweet about her faith in witchcraft. Azealia Banks was blunt stating, “I’m really a witch,” on her Twitter account while she was reflecting on the beliefs of her ancestors before they were brought to this country. She maintains (correctly) that prior to coming to America, Africans held beliefs drastically different from the Western Christian beliefs that were forced upon them once they were removed from their homeland and sold into slavery in America.
