Azealia Banks says major corporations made bank off slave labor. The hip hop star published a series of accusatory tweets on Friday, arguing that major corporations owe African Americans “major bucks” after profiting from slavery in the 18th century. Banks tweeted on Friday afternoon, after linking to stories from various newspapers describing the ways in which American Indians and Holocaust survivors have sought reparations from the American and German governments, respectively. Banks goes on to name corporations including Aetna, New York Life Insurance, JP Morgan and Chase as companies that are still profiting off capital established during the Industrial Revolution. Banks states that the money these organizations made in the 1800s came directly from slave labor.
