Ice Cube Posts Somber and Serious Video on The Contract with Black America His Big Bold Plan for All



Fresh off working with Governor Gavin Newsom on the passage and signing of AB3121 and joining him for the historic bill signing, Ice Cube reveals his discussions and thoughts following conversations with both Presidential campaigns in his latest video.

Update: 10/14/20




Watch the video below: from Ice Cube's twitter account: Unfiltered and unedited post. He captioned the post with DON'T KILL THE MESSENGER 



As citizens and lawmakers both, we are joining to demand the Contract with Black America be addressed immediately to finally create the "more perfect union" all Americans deserve. As such, it is time for a complete paradigm shift in how we run our institutions and operate our country. The problems facing America are too deep and wide to simply reform one area or another. Long-lasting solutions demand a comprehensive thorough "rethink" of America so that each new approach in each area supports the success of the others. This Contract with Black America will provide conceptual approaches in several areas.

Darrick Hamilton, in the Preface to the Contract, says "This Contract with Black America strikes at the heart of racism and presents a blueprint to achieve racial economic justice. It was written in the backdrop of the killing of George Floyd, which set off a wave of protests not seen since the Civil Rights Era of the 1950's and '60's, and a global pandemic in which the Black mortality rate is more than double the White rate and in which 45% (nearly half) of Black-owned businesses closed. That the impact of something presumably random, such as a pandemic, however catastrophic, can be so linked to one's racial identity is highly problematic – and further evidence that, as a nation, we are failing miserably.

This links to a larger political and economic vulnerability, whether we're in a pandemic or not: the immoral devaluation of Black lives has been ingrained in America's political economy and is long overdue for a reckoning. This Contract with Black America is a patriotic pathway to promote our shared prosperity and achieve racial economic justice." Ambassador Andrew Young is equally supportive. "The Pandemic has revealed to us the importance of the essential worker of which many are minorities. We can grow no stronger without improving the sustainability of those at the bottom of the economic pyramid. The Contract for Black America is a comprehensive step toward an action plan that addresses the future stability of minorities and essential workers across the nation."

To address racial inequality, after reading the Contract with Black America, we the undersigned agree to support and demand an open debate and a clear and fair vote within the first 100 days of the 117th Congress in 2021 on the following proposals to be codified into specific bills.

View The Contract with Black America

  • Adopt a plan of "Neo-Reconstruction" to redress past wrongs systematically imposed on Black Americans economically throughout many generations that has resulted in a "wealth gap" where the average White family has 10x the wealth of a Black Family.

  • Our entertainers should be persuaded to deliver more positive content that leads our youth to make better choices in life. A new pride must develop with these new opportunities and we must fight against negativity, frustration, hopelessness, depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, crime, and violence.

  • Broadcast networks will be required to air Black produced content equal to 20% of the total content on the network as measured by time.

  • Rename all streets, schools, public structures, etc. named after Confederate soldiers or leaders.  A memorial will be built in Washington D.C. to victims of police excessive force.

Responses from Black Twitter with the revelation that Ice Cube is working closer with the Trump Administration rather than the Democratic camp of Biden and Harris.
