America is a great country. Our free market system provides massive opportunity to create wealth -- for anybody with a dream and some motivation.
No matter what age, gender or race you may be, the American free markets provide a chance to be rich. To be famous. To be powerful.
Sometimes, you can achieve all three. Case in point: Hip Hop artist Azealia Banks.
As a young rapper growing up poor in Harlem… raised by a single mom, educated in the public schools Azealia had an American dream.
She hit it big in rap and Hip Hop recording.
You could say Azealia has become a young, talented and successful recording star.
Her music career opened doors to acting roles.
She has achieved that American Dream in multiples.
Azealia Banks was named one of Forbes "30 under 30."
She earned over a million bucks in 2012, 2013 and much more in 2014.
With so much to thank America for, to thank our free market system and capitalism for, it makes me crazy to hear her say this:
“Yes! I hate everything about this country. Like, I hate fat white Americans. …. these racist conservative white people who live on their farms. Those little teenage girls who work at Kmart and have a racist grandma—that’s really America.”
You hate everything about a country that has given you so much??
Azealia Banks has earned this week’s "Fool of the Week." BIG TIME!
