Are We Facing Another Mass Extinction Event?

The war of words and Twitter feud between Iggy Azalea and Azealia Banks just will not come to an end. In the latest installment of events -- which were triggered this week by Banks's emotional Hot 97 interview about racism and the entertainment industry - the "Heavy Metal and Reflective" rapper is calling out the media for painting her in a poor light when she just "wants to talk about black stuff."

For those who may be a little behind, let's catch you up. In the ongoing, way-too-long feud between Azalea and Banks, Banks accused Azalea of appropriating black culture for her own gain and stealing away art from the black community. Azalea, meanwhile, has defended herself and her mentor T.I. against Banks's comments. Earlier this week, however, Banks gave an impassioned radio interview, where she discussed her feelings on race, Azalea and the music industry. Following that interview, Azalea called out Banks on Twitter, calling her "poisonous" and "miserable."

Now, Banks is calling out the media for what she feels is a system that is perpetuating racism. Citing "white publications" like Us Weekly, Banks is stating that the photos used for the Iggy/Azealia articles are unflattering.

And Banks is getting some high profile support from the hip-hop community. Solange Knowles and Tyler, The Creator have both tweeted their support for the star.
