Vocal Trump critic, rapper/actor Ice Cube shocked people on both the left and the right when it was announced that worked with the Trump Administration on the “Platinum Plan” after his request was rejected by Democrats. Needless to say “Black Twitter” was not happy about a black man working with Republicans.
In a tweet on Wednesday, Ice Cube accused Democrats of brushing aside his Contract with Black America, saying that the party told him they would address the issue after the election. Cube said that the Trump campaign has spoken to him about the initiative and as a result, some adjustments to the campaign’s “Platinum Plan” which is described as a roadmap for economic, educational, and financial investments in black communities.
“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.” – Cube said.

The reaction to this news was made with vistrol from black Twitter which proceeded to call the rapper/actor a sellout.
Ice Cube told Black people not to vote while secretly working with trump, that's fraudulent behavior. A walking voting suppression billboard, this strategically planned with the trump campaign. Ice Cube used our oppression against us while being a tool for trump secretly.— 👑 Mr. Weeks 👑 (@WonderKing82) October 14, 2020
Damn, either Ice Cube don’t know… don’t show… or don’t care about what’s goin on in the hood… 😥— Cyrus McQueen (@CyrusMMcQueen) October 14, 2020
Ice Cube is going to have to change his name to Warm Water. The heat he is receiving…(Baby!)— Karen Hunter (@karenhunter) October 14, 2020
As I said, I knew Ice Cube would eventually morph into a MAGA hat wearing lunatic, money laundering fraud schemes are always enticing to the obvious sellouts, but once he started posting antisemitic memes, I knew it was a done deal. He can go fuck himself.— Ricky Davila (@TheRickyDavila) October 15, 2020
People bashing Ice Cube got the right to be mad. Trump hasn't done anything for the black community, now he's suddenly putting 500B into it?— Alex Fontenot (@AlexFon25) October 15, 2020
The same dude who was against athletes kneeling for BLM but was supporting White Nationalists? pic.twitter.com/lk6cbyrLtD
Be clear: Trump ain't shit, Ice Cube ain't shit & the Platinum Plan ain't shit but a SCAM! Black people there is NO $500 billion from Trump for us! His plan for us is "herd immunity" to wipe us out. Trump blew smoke up Cube's ass while the rest of us will get a kick in the ass! https://t.co/8JqNOnnFca pic.twitter.com/LnzhLSPTx8— Reecie @BlackWomenViews (@ReecieColbert) October 14, 2020
Ice Cube a coon. Never thought I’d see the day— Chris Cadence Show & No Idol Apparel 🇳🇬 (@ChrisCadence_) October 14, 2020
Earlier this year, Ice Cube put together a political manifesto that puts forth a blueprint to achieve racial economic justice.
“A Contract with Black America: Addressing Racial Inequality” was intended to put pressure on companies, including financial institutions, to invest in black communities and approve more loans to black families and black-owned businesses.
