In a new Playboy magazine interview, Banks reveals she's no longer a fan of the United States.
She says, "I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. All the people who are crunched into the middle of America, the real fat and meat of America, are these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at (superstore) Kmart and have a racist grandma - that's really America."
And the tough-talking hip-hop star also takes aim at the media, who have depicted her as an angry young rap star on the back of a series of rants aimed at Iggy Azalea, Lily Allen and other stars.
She rages, "Lorde can run her mouth and talk s**t about all these other b**ches, but y'all aren't saying she's angry. If I have something to say, I get pushed into the corner."
Banks insists race issues are at the heart of all her angry tweets and social media posts, and she feels more than justified in attacking her white peers.
She adds, "Y'all mother**kers still owe me reparations! That's why it's still about race... Yeah, I am loud and boisterous. And I am black, and I am a pain in your a**. But I'm not really talking to you, and that's what makes those people mad. You're not invited to this conversation. This is not about you. When you rip a people from their land, from their customs, from their culture... There's still a piece of me that knows I'm not supposed to be speaking English, I'm not supposed to be worshipping Jesus Christ. All this s**t is unnatural to me.
"People will be like, 'Oh, you're ignorant because you don't speak proper English'. No. This is not mine. I don't even want this s**t, so I'm going to do whatever the f**k I want with this language. I'm going to call you a f*g or a cracker or a b**ch."
Meanwhile, her Playboy cover has hit the web - in the photo, the provocative hip-hop star wears a leopard-print one-piece bikini and balances a black cat on her head.
