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.

       @ Allen E.    Vaughn mitchell is gay he likes Obama because of same sex marriage now he is living free in the open with his gay partner, if you observe the comments, he is the dumbest and retarded n***** ever, when the last time he posted an article with useful information in regards of the issues he complaints about, when the last time he comments on an article where he provided facts and resources? He repeats what ever he hears on social media and the white democrats like Nancy Pelosi, how can someone have so much concern but never suggest a solution, he is a slave n***** he dont like Trump because he is racist but he worked and slave all his life for a racist boss, if you hate a president for that reason why do you work for racist people, why do you support racist businesses, all those corporation like your cable and phone company, utility company never took a stand against police brutality they are all support the cops, they strongly funded the PBA, the worse part now you have a whole police force that is terrorising the black community in NY who supports Trump, how come you dont boycott them, you have Patrick Lynch who on national tv representing the police calling black people animals because he feels you dont belong on the streets, how come you niggers never boycott him, he strongly states he dont like black people but he gets to stay on his jobs getting rich making over 100k every year, how come you niggers havent done anything about that and you want to tell me about Trump you dumb slave n*****

Allen E. I am proud to say that i am the child of ex panther of of the philadelphia chapter, i was taught and prepared for this world, but it is upsetting when you sit and watch how a group of people comfortably surrender to slavery, they repeat what they hear but wont research, they blame others for their problems but never hold those they serve accountable, they complaint and make the same dumb decision, they are afraid to embrace change, these niggers are so dumb they cant realize that Trump is a white agenda not them, they are so loyal to their masters they repeat the same thing and want Trump out for the same reasons but too dumb to use him, the militia groups been there did obama declare them terrorist, have congress ever pass a bill to declare them domestic terrorists, have obama ever defund the police, have biden ever pass a bill during his 50 years to reform the police, all those people the negros rely on are still there what have they done, whats the role of the black congress people, how cone they never submit a proposal of behalf of whats hurting the community? But they sure fight of gays and illegal immigrants agenda, i dont understand how a  group of people accept the method of the lesser evil, when no others do, it is upsetting

Comment by Allen E. on October 25, 2020 at 3:13am,you really know how to get someone's watch you stir up the pot and really upset these viewers in make one wonder if you're brown skinned or of NO color at ALL...unless one has heard it from you,or read it from you or KNOW you,they just don't just "put it out on the table" can dig it.

@vaughn mitchell,I do want to share with you that #1,I DON'T vote,NOR do I follow any party.I actually am an Apostle of The Gospel of JESUS CHRIST and God also uses me to Teach AND preach on Television,so I HAVE to "not be AN ACTOR in the play",but rather be one that "sits out in the audience and watch what's going on",so that I can be Blessed by God to "SEE" the WHOLE picture. Now,in saying that,I would like to share that I notice that O'shea,(ice cube),is stepping up to be an activist of the "rights" of people of color and there are those who are trying to diss him and assume that he's NOT intelligent enough to do so. THEN you have those that are (secretly) trying to jump on the band wagon and "parlee" on HIS plan...I really hope and believe that he is clever enough to see right THROUGH them. And while it is very true that many people of color "voted" for obama because he is "OF color"...his agenda was outrageous and further helped to turn THIS country AWAY from THE GOD OF HEAVEN! He supports and supported AND initiated SAME SEX stuff and the legalizing of those (outrageous lying)lifestyles and he never even ONCE stood up for people of color AS they were being attacked,shot,killed or even oppressed. I thought that was odd,until I learned THIS:

   OR you can look HERE:

Now,THIS lets us know that behind the scenes,OBAMA WASN'T VOTED in,he was PLACED in...(dig THAT),he COULDN'T "stand up" for ANYTHING concerning people of color...smh...

now,Roland Martin,(to get back to O'shea),tried to bring one of the founders of "black lives matter" on his show,that she may "connect" with O'shea,(ice cube),concerning his CWBA...MY take on that is that I HOPE O'shea isn't falling for that caper,because he already have people claiming that he "isn't intelligent enough" to make the move that he's making.The truth is that the Brother ISN'T dumb AT ALL...but I hope he is "seeing" the game that they are trying to run on him...I was inspired to do further research ON black lives matter,so that I can see WHAT it was really about...and HERE'S what I "found" (from a RELIABLE SOURCE for NEWS):

and it made sense when I read that the lgbtq( "MERGED" with "black lives matter",notice:

      and this:  

so,THAT means that the gay agenda is HIDING UNDER the "black lives matter" heading...thus deceiving ALL who are supporting and chanting those words: 'black lives matter".and that ALSO explains WHY those in the WHITE HOUSE WON'T utter those words: because THEY HAD to know that "black lives matter" REALLY is pushing something ELSE: "gayness". Pence was RIGHT In saying that "ALL lives matter"...but the media and PEOPLE found FAULT in him saying "ALL lives"...matter.


So,this lady,who is one of the founders of "black lives matter",was (in the article above) trying to get O'shea',(ice cube),to collaborate with HER so that THEY can "get things done".And ROLAND MARTIN IS THE "MATCH MAKER"...TRUTH IS: SHE knows that O'shea is UP to something (that's going to get good attention),and SHE kept mentioning "his platform being a good platform",(as though SHE needs to advise  him),because SHE knows that the brother is RICH and CAN do what SHE CAN'T! "jezebel's daughter" trying to stroke the Brother's ego so that she can EASE her way into HIS "movement"...that's pure deception.

I strongly suggest that EVERYBODY do research and LEARN that ALL LIVES MATTER! And Donald Trump is going to be re-elected,so people mighty as well accept it and get used to it.He's a DEAL MAKER and this country NEEDS that,instead of this country being "sold" to everyone that wants "a piece of her".Donald plays monopoly AND hard ball,and the deals he's been making ARE "chess moves",and NOT "checker moves".

    MY advice is: "DO YOU,O'shea...accomplish your mission,Brother...and leave those (confused) women OUT of your business.Watch out for the COUP,Brother...because if you join with them,they'll attempt it.Look at how they are FORCING THEY'RE WAY into everything ELSE."gay is not the way"! period!

Comment by vaughn mitchell on October 23, 2020 at 10:39pm
@Allen E, what is Ice Cube is doing is shaming himself. Trump, won't pass a stimulus package but will meet with a rapper, Trump, lied about the virus but will meet with a rapper, Trump, won't stop the killing if black men but he would meet with a rapper or comedian. Anyone that has smarts know that the Republicans are in charge, what can the Democrats do. The Republicans and Trump, can't even pass a health care bill, and they have 12, years to do so. Ice Cube, step Trump , about helping the black community, why did he not ask Trump, about blocking black people from voting, the killing of black people by the cops, why he is backing all these hate groups, why he lied about the virus, which had killed more black people than white people, but he goes to Trump, looking for a hand-out. Half of you that are backing Ice Cube, don't know s***. If the Republicans won't pass a stimulus bill, why will they invest any money in the black community.

Allen E. Thanks for the comment and the information that you provide, most the niggers come on here and run with the mouth and anger but cannot provide any information and facts and thats what separate a black person from the slaves, Roland Martin is one of those selling the community so he keeps their mind in the dirt, no one is willing to fight for the community because they want to have tv and radio shows, they have been doing the same thing for years but cant realize theres is no great result from it, every election they tell the black community the same thing, vote because their lives depend on it and then give them nothing, but no one is willing to questions where is the return for the vote, that is sad and you can tell when you have a retarded community they repeat and run with anything those idiots tell them, they wont read or research, do you see how quick they are knocking down Ice Cube for trying something positive, if they did read they would know Ice Cube have been sitting down with the democrats for months, all they care about is a damn election, they are not concern about black people, niggers embraced and accept slavery and cry about it, if you dont think like a slave like they do they will hate you, ask those idiots one thing about what Biden did for black people they couldnt tell you. But they will vote for him,  may be the niggers who support Biden can tell me did Abraham lincoln gave pain killers to the slave before ripping off their teeth to put in his mouth, do the niggers know majority of the democratic politicians from senators, Mayors to presidents were democrats? Hoe about they do some reading start with the first 10 presidents in America, so sad to love being slaves and serve white people for ever
