Rapper Ice Cube has been shredded all over social media for daring to work with President Donald Trump on the Platinum Plan, which is designed to help folks in the black community.
Because, you know, Trump is an evil, vile racist who hates anyone of color. Well, that’s the narrative the left pushes anyway.
Instead of backing down, Ice Cube continues to double down and offer praise for the administration for working with him.
The legendary rap artist recently spoke with Maria Bartiromo on Fox News over the weekend where he put his critics back in their place.
“I like that it’s aimed towards black Americans, you know, that’s the key. I just think whatever we do got to be aimed towards black Americans,” he said.
Ice Cube emphasized that black people have been unfairly lumped in with other groups through buzzwords like “minority” or “people of color.” Going forward, Ice Cube said he feels that black Americans should be at the front of the line in terms of getting help from any programs.
Though Ice Cube reiterated that he does not wish to be used as anyone’s political pawn or be lumped in with big-name figures like Candace Owens, he did respond to those criticizing his working with the Trump administration.
“At the end of the day, they’re mad ‘cause I’m just willing to work with anybody that’s willing to work with me to see some of these things that’s in the Contract with Black America come to pass,” the rap legend said. “I’ve been getting pushback ever since I came out with the Contract with Black America, you know, from everybody who really don’t want us to … have real demands, but people who just want us to basically shut up and vote, and I’m not gonna do that.”
“I’m a citizen of this country just like everybody else, and I can say what I want to say,” Ice Cube said. “I’m not aligned with anybody’s personal views. I only care about what they do in public as far as helping the public and, you know, empty rhetoric, empty talk, everybody’s popping off, at the end of the day, we need to get what we need in this country to survive. If we don’t get that, this country won’t survive. And that’s what I’m saying.”
Another famous rap artist, Lil Wayne, has also expressed praise for Trump’s Platinum Plan.
“Just had a great meeting with [President Donald Trump],” Lil Wayne tweeted. “Besides what he’s done so far with criminal reform, the platinum plan is going to give the community real ownership. He listened to what we had to say today and assured he will and can get it done.”
So the radical left is getting ticked off at two black men for not doing what they think all black people should do, which is only work with Democrats, and yet conservatives are the racist ones?
Let that sink in for a moment.
