The latest recipient of the King Solomon “Best to Keep your Mouth Closed” Award (Proverbs 17:28, NIV, “Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues”) is gangsta rapper and actor Ice Cube — fella must’ve really not liked his name.Mr. Cube offered his interesting political insights and political metaphor to Time Magazine’s Belinda Luscombe. According to IJReview.com report, hip hop recording artist and Hollywood actor Ice Cube was promoting his new movie 22 Jump Street when Luscombe asked Ice Cube how he thought Obama was handling the job of president, to which he responded:
“Obama reminds me of the black kid at a white school that don’t nobody want to play with.”…“I think he’s done the best job a man in his position could do under the circumstances.”Huh?
Then Ice Cube admitted he wasn’t really into the political game. Yes sir, we gathered that from your initial clueless statement.I would love to chat with Mr. Cube about tax reform policy, expanding the welfare nanny-state, the relationship between economic, energy, and national security, and the inflation resulting from quantitative easing monetary policies.
And maybe we could discuss the global security situation in Iraq and its potential effects upon regional stability. Mr. Cube is placing the blame of people not like Obama’s leadership in the White House on his race, but he admits that he doesn’t even keep an eye on what really happens in the political world — as Oprah would say, “brilliant.”
However, IJ Review takes Mr. Cube on for his using a simpleton metaphor noting that “Ice Cube is not shy about his racially-charged lyrics, including those for his single Cave B*tch – one that is clearly derogatory against white females. There’s also Black Korea (rails and makes threats against Koreans in black neighborhoods), as well as the N*gga Trapp (denigrates the “capitalism” that has made him rich, attacks white women, and slams Bush), and the in-your-face anti-white “Race War.”Why here’s just a little taste of the cheery ditty, Race War:
“Check this out: now I’m black, But black people trip, Cause white people like me, White people like me, But don’t like them, What’s the fu*k up, Are you my friend? Hell no, you’re a racist, You say you got one black friend, so you’re in.”
Yes, Mr. Cube is truly a renowned expert on race relations in America. Sadly enough, he has a following who will listen to his drivel and take it as gospel — and yes, they vote.
