Ice Cube On defensive AGAIN As Roland Martin Blast Him Over Trump “Platinum Plan”

Ice Cube is striking back at ‘SELLOUT’ Label {VIDEO}

Ice Cube is once again on the defensive as Roland Smith attacks him for working with Trump.

Ice Cube is tired of being blamed for endorsing President Donald Trump for presenting his plan, called the Platinum Plan. The plan was supposed to focus on ways to give African Americans a fair chance at being prosperous and to help stop the race from being targeted by law enforcement and other groups.

Since Ice Cube met with the Trump administration, he’s faced large scale criticism from the black community and has had to defend himself on a regular basis. On October 14, he tried to explain via Twitter that he was only concerned about the welfare of black people and that they would be treated better and not which political party puts the plan in place. He said: “Facts: I put out the CWBA. Both parties contacted me. Dems said we’ll address the CWBA after the election. Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA.”

Fans were not convinced and continue to drag the iconic rapper for supporting the Trump administration, which has been accused of several instances of racism since taking office. The Black Lives Matter’s ideology is based on their belief that the administration does nothing to alleviate the circumstances of blacks, including the violence meted out to them. Recently, they used the murder of George Floyd and Breona Taylor to support their theory.

Again on October 14th, Cube defended himself as he tried to reason with fans. His angle was that there are no good sides in the US and what matters most is action for black people. He said: “Every side is the Darkside for us here in America. They’re all the same until something changes for us. They all lie and they all cheat but we can’t afford not to negotiate with whoever is in power or our condition in this country will never change. Our justice is bipartisan.”

On October 30, he stated: “The government is only one aspect of the CWBA. We plan to challenge the private sector and we also have legal arguments for the courts. We’re fighting on all fronts for a long time till we get our piece of the pie.”

His reasoning is not sitting well with fans and analysts. One of his detractors, renowned reporter Roland Martin, once again called out the rapper for his perceived alliance with Donald Trump.

Martin shared his thoughts on the matter, including that he believed Cube had been conned. His comments came after Cube posted this statement on Twitter: “Let me get this straight, I get the president of the United States to agree to put over half a trillion dollars of capital in the Black Community (without an endorsement) and Ni**as are mad at me? Face with tears of joyFace with tears of joyFace with tears of joy…have a nice life.”

Here are a few of Martin’s responses to that statement:

“The only problem @icecube is that you didn’t get Trump to put $500 billion of capital in Black communities. It’s a lie. It’s ONE LINE on the cover sheet of his so-called Platinum Plan. No specifics. NOTHING. Bruh, you got played. ”

“Why do I know you got played @icecube? I’ve talked to numerous Black Republicans who currently work with the administration and THEY said the $500 billion “commitment” is a joke. You’re just wrong, bruh. 2/2”

“Come on @icecube, you at least gotta give Black folks enough credit to know that we know when we are getting played. All Jared and Trump wanted was to be able to say you co-signed the plan. They got exactly what they wanted. What did we get? A one sheet plan of nothing. 5/10.”

“Look @icecube, I get your intentions. But all of the data – lack of ANY endorsement by top Black REPUBLICAN business leaders and NO outreach to ANY Black media outlets – proves that $500 billion commitment is as trusted as Trump’s wedding vows. They are worthless. 10/10”

'How do you go from NWA to MAGA?': Fans blast Ice Cube as a 'sell-out' and 'hypocrite' after the Trump campaign revealed he has been working alongside the President {VIDEO}

In the aftermath of catching all kinds of heat for hooking up with Donald Trump on his so-called “Platinum Plan” for Black America, Ice Cube is striking back with a defiant tweet.

“When I got [the] bus to school. Homies called me a sellout. When I started rapping in 1983. Bangers called me a sellout,” Cube (above) wrote. “When I left NWA. They called me a sellout. When I start doing movies. Rappers called me a sellout. When I started my own [3-on-3 basketball] league. The arena said it was a sellout.”

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Ice Cube has coughed up an explanation why he’s working with the Trump campaign after getting heavy backlash on Twitter.

In our lifetimes, there has perhaps existed no other president who has stoked racial divisions and earned the support of white supremacists as much or as often as Donald Trump. However, it seems this behavior did not stop Ice Cube from getting involved with the Trump campaign to help build a platform based on a series of promises to attract the support of Black Americans. On Tuesday, Trump advisor Katrina Pierson thanked the West Coast icon on Twitter, writing, “Shoutout to @icecube for his willingness to step up and work with @realDonaldTrump Administration to help develop the #PlatinumPlan.”

According to multiple sources, the plan Pierson is referring to is a new Trump platform supposedly aimed at addressing the needs and concerns of Black people in America.

Ice Cube quickly confirmed his involvement, tweeting, “Facts: I put out the CWBA.” Cube went on to explain that he was in talks with both parties about their commitment to the so-called “Contract with Black America,” drafted by Cube himself, who explained that the Democrats promised to discuss the plan after the election, while the Trump campaign was willing to make immediate adjustments to their platform.

The West Coast rap icon has been known to withhold his support for Democratic politicians in the past, arguing that neither party has proven that they are genuinely looking out for the good of Black communities in America.

While Ice Cube’s skepticism is more than justified, his public willingness to work with the Trump campaign will undoubtedly be used as “evidence” that the Trump administration is not racist, despite the perpetuation of racist policies and dog whistle rhetoric that consistently empowers white supremacists. Critics have called the move irresponsible, suggesting that Cube’s actions will be misconstrued as an endorsement and may influence the many hip hop fans that idolize him. Additionally, those who have paid attention to the words and actions of the Trump administration know that a promise coming from such a corrupt organization means little to nothing in terms of concrete change.

That chick running capers...I don't support Nothing SHE DOES AND wouldn't...why: Because of THIS:

https://abcnews.go.com/US/start-black-lives-matter-lgbtq-lives/stor...

and THIS:

https://www.washingtonblade.com/2020/09/16/lgbtq-black-lives-matter...

so,what's going on is Roland Martin is trying to institute something that's geared toward blocking what O'shea is doing. O'shea need to leave them alone because they don't want him in it. He doesn't support the gay agenda and shouldn't let them talk him into it. I hope Ice cube is reading this and I hope he recognizes the game that those two are trying to run on him. Roland is scheming and so is that woman...look into their eyes and listen to what they are saying. They don't want Brother O'Shea to do anything on his own. Gay is NOT the way in NO way at all! 

WATCH OUT CUBE...they trying to set you up,Brother!

Like I said before 1 Dick, call me the N, word to my face, and you will never repeat that word again in your life , you white racist piece of s***. You talk s*** that you from Bk, that don't mean s*** to me. Mike, you want to help get his ass off here. Screenshot his racist statements, hit up caribbean fever on facebook, and send it to them. He need to take his racist ass to yahoo, he would be banned on Twitter or Facebook using the N, word, he get away with it here because no one is checking this fool. As, for Cube, he is finished, watch how many movies he appear in, or how much his music sell. They use his name, to try and get blacks to vote for Trump, while cops are shooting black men, the country is headed towards a civil war and he think Trump, is going to invest $500. Billion, in the black community, when he won't stop the cops from killing black men. More black people died from the virus than whitepeople when that fool lied to the people.
