Ice Cube is a man with a plan!
The hip hop mogul has always been vocal regarding racism and recently presented a detailed plan for addressing racism in America. On Wednesday (July 22), Cube appeared on The Breakfast Club where he discussed his “Contract for Black America,” police reform, and societal change among other topics.
“If you just do police reform, it’s just gonna be abuse picking up in other areas. We got to do not only police reform but justice reform and prison reform. The 13th Amendment still allows for slavery when it comes to being incarcerated. These things need to be fixed and it’ll start solving a lot of problems we have in America,” he said.
The rap icon unveiled the latest version of the contract on Twitter on Sunday (July 19), writing, “we’ve been working with a lot of experts and great people during these last few weeks. The document is much stronger and much more detailed. We will continue towards perfection.”
The 22-page document begins by calling for “a complete paradigm shift in how we run our institutions and operate our country,” and extensively outlined provisions that would combat racial inequality across several areas, including education, legislation, and police reform.
The 51-year-old told hosts Charlamange Da God, DJ Envy and Angela Yee that the document is “far from perfect,” but he feels it’s a step in the right direction to seeing meaningful change for the Black community.
