Ice Cube Calls Out Democratic Party: “What’s In It For The Black Community”
Ice Cube Calls Out Democratic Party: “What’s In It For The Black Community”: American rapper, actor, and filmmaker, Ice Cube goes at the Democrats, following the Democratic National Convention. Following the Democratic National Convention, Ice Cube says the Democratic party has not yet done what’s necessary to demonstrate they merit the Black vote in the 2020 Presidential political race.
“Lot of people getting up there and talking and, everybody really eating it up, throwing their hands in the air like they just don’t care damn near. What I didn’t hear is, ‘What’s in it for us?’ What’s in it for the Black community besides the same old thing we’ve been getting from these parties? What’s in it for us, for real?
“I didn’t hear anybody mention a Contract with Black America, and I don’t know why because its one of the most comprehensive reform documents that have come around in a long time that could really address the problem. The way it looks, they don’t really have a problem. Everybody talkin’ about, ‘Get Trump out, get Trump out, get Trump out.’ If you vote, that’s gon’ happen on the first day. So, now what? Trump out, now what? What do we get in the first 100 days? That’s what we’re trying to figure out. What do we actually get that they could give us overnight like that?”
Highlighted speakers during the convention included previous President Barack Obama, Vice Presidential chosen one Kamala Harris, Presidential candidate Joe Biden, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Look at Cube’s contemplation on the occasion beneath.
