The outspoken rapper blasted the movement.

Azealia Banks has openly criticised The Women’s March and warned her followers of the dangers of feminism. 

The controversial rapper took a swipe at this weekend's international campaign, which saw hundreds of thousands of protesters take to the streets in cities all over the world on the first full day of Donald Trump's presidency.

Banks questioned the protest on Instagram, asking "Why do women fall for these white feminist tricks all the time?"

"Now that some white dude has taken office who simply said something silly about grabbing a p***y, they want to march in the streets under the guise of 'standing up for human freedoms.'"

"Intersectional feminism only exists in our heads lol," she continued. 

"Feminism only cares about and fights for white women. Feminism is basically white women protecting each other and keeping all other women out."

 

Intersectional feminism only exists in our heads lol. The proof is in the pudding. Feminism only cares about and fights for white women. Feminism is basically white women protecting each other and keeping all other women out. Look at the numbers for that march, look how much power and strength white women have when they join together. White women could save the entire world if they TRULY wanted to but they don't. If Taylor swift said to vogue and told them to give equal opportunity to girls who don't fit the privileged white girl image what do you think would happen? DIVERSITY. If white women were on the front of americas race issue and actively worked to level the playing field - racism would be gone. That's is how much social power white women TRULY have. We don't have true diversity and transparency amongst women as a cornerstone of mainstream feminism because white women don't want it !! They like their power and want to keep it. It's dangerous to involve yourself and consume all these blanket statements about what women need deserve and want because the list of grievances doesn't TRULY represent all women. What a lot of mainstream feminism stands for is dangerous because you have these very privileged and entitled white women speaking on be half of all women and it shouldn't be.

The rapper continued her rant by claiming "white women could save the entire world" before adding that they don’t want to. 

"Look at the numbers for that march, look how much power and strength white women have when they join together. White women could save the entire world if they TRULY wanted to but they don’t."

Banks went on to target country-pop singer Taylor Swift in her rant.

"If Taylor swift said to Vogue and told them to give equal opportunity to girls who don't fit the privileged white girl image what do you think would happen? DIVERSITY."

"We don't have true diversity and transparency amongst women as a cornerstone of mainstream feminism because white women don't want it !! They like their power and want to keep it,” she said.

"What a lot of mainstream feminism stands for is dangerous because you have these very privileged and entitled white women speaking on be half of all women and it shouldn't be."

The '212' rapper made a bold statement on the equality between men and women.

"Man and woman are not equal and never will be because we’re not supposed to!!" she said.
