Azealia Banks: Will Her Personal Outspoken Views Sabotage Her Career?

I like the mixture of Rap/Hip Hop with House Music, I think its’ dope but will Azealia Bank’s heart felt outbursts on interviews and Twitter ruin her career? Here is my take; I love that the girl is raw and honest, I actually agree with some of her concerns. The problem is she can’t express those views absent of being confrontational, which makes her come off as crazy. As refreshing as it is, she is also extremely immature and comes off as a hypocrite at times. I love to have at least a dichotomy within an artist, but it can be someone’s downfall if they can’t express themselves in a less combative way. She reminds me of Kanye; compose/logical in one moment then becomes a bit crazy and all over the place with her views. Should this be problematic in an artsy where honesty should be valued even with disagreements?

NYPD Officer Speaks Out on Fellow Cops Who Turned Backs to Mayor & Why People of Color Fear Police

The NYPD’s stop-and-frisk practices raise serious concerns over racial profiling, illegal stops and privacy rights. The Department’s own reports on its stop-and-frisk activity confirm what many people in communities of color across the city have long known: The police are stopping hundreds of thousands of law abiding New Yorkers every year, and the vast majority are black and Latino.

An analysis by the NYCLU revealed that innocent New Yorkers have been subjected to police stops and street interrogations more than 4 million times since 2002, and that black and Latino communities continue to be the overwhelming target of these tactics. Nearly nine out of 10 stopped-and-frisked New Yorkers have been completely innocent, according to the NYPD’s own reports.
