Ice Cube came under fire on Wednesday (10/15) after Trump administration senior official Katrina Pierson thanked him for "for his willingness to step up and work with Donald Trump" on The Platinum Plan, a program that aims to create 3 million jobs for Black Americans, make Juneteenth a national holiday, and more. Ice Cube responded that he'd spoken to the Trump campaign about his Contract for Black America, which he said both parties had approached him about, and, when asked if he was "working with the Darkside," 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."
Now Ice Cube has responded further on Twitter. "Black progress is a bipartisan issue," he writes. "When we created the Contract With Black America we excepted to talk to both sides of the isle. Talking truth to power is part of the process."
