Rapper, actor, and entrepreneur Ice Cube said on a recent podcast that "nothing has changed" for black people who have "overwhelmingly" supported Democrats for over 50 years, and insisted that change is needed.
On the "Full Send Podcast," which has previously hosted President Trump, Tucker Carlson, and even O.J. Simpson, Ice Cube was asked about his support for Trump in the 2020 election cycle.
"When you kind of supported Trump and stuff like that, what did you think about it, because you're [in] Hollywood, you know, there's a lot of, like, propaganda and stuff like that. What was that like, getting flak for that?" asked host Kyle Forgeard.
"I never supported Trump or Biden. I never asked to speak to the Republicans or the Democrats," the artist replied. "I created a document called 'The Contract with Black America' that spelled out a lot of different issues that we believe were the reasons why [there] was so much unrest after George Floyd was killed," he continued.
"[Do] you think there's like a stigma amongst like the African-American community to Republicans and stuff like that?" Forgeard then asked.
"I don't know what's going on in the African-American community when it comes to that, you know? I mean like black people have supported Democrats, you know, overwhelmingly for 50, 60 years, and nothing has changed. So, something's got to change," he explained.
The movie star also explained how his "Contract with Black America" was well received by Democrats and Republicans, both of whom reached out to him prior to the 2020 election:
"I released the document and everybody wanted to talk to me. The Republicans asked to talk to me and the Democrats. I went to talk to both of them about the contract. The Republicans asked could they implement some things from the contract into their proposal. And I said the document was open for anybody to use in any way they desire."
He described how he met with Democrats, who told him, “'We like 90% of what’s in there and we’ll talk to you after the election about it.' And I said 'Okay.' And I felt like, after that, everybody started to pile on and say that I was for Trump and I was for this and I was for that. It’s not true."
However, Ice Cube has also previously expressed that Democrats placated him until after the 2020 election, but never followed through on holding a meeting.
