Ice Cube Reacts to Latest Police Violence In Minneapolis: ‘How Long… Before We Strike Back?’

  • Save

Rapper and actor Ice Cube has taken to social media to weigh in on the tragic death of George Floyd, a Minnesota man who perished as a result of injuries sustained during an encounter with Minneapolis Police Department officers.

On Twitter, the 50-year-old Los Angeles native wrote: “How long will we go for Blue on Black Crime before we strike back???”

(Please note that Ice Cube’s above-hyperlinked tweet is a response to a message containing uncensored footage of the graphic incident; the video will play automatically after one navigates to the post.)

The unsettling two-minute-long clip shows a Minneapolis police officer using his knee to apply pressure to the back of Floyd’s neck, while ignoring Floyd’s pleas. The police officer was also ignoring protests from the individual who captured footage of the episode and other witnesses.

Floyd eventually ceases moving, and though paramedics can be seen arriving onto the scene towards the end of the video, neither they nor local doctors were able to save his life. Floyd’s family has yet to release a statement on his behalf, and plans for a memorial service haven’t been made available to the public.

Minneapolis Major Jacob Frey and Minneapolis Police Department officials revealed about one hour ago that all four of the responding officers have been fired. It’s unclear whether these individuals (and particularly the officer who pressed his knee against Floyd’s neck) will face criminal charges.

At the time of this writing, none of the involved police officers had publicly commented on the matter.

Ice Cube is set to release his next feature film, The High Note, this Friday, May 29th, via video on demand. The 113-minute-long movie also stars Tracee Ellis Ross and Dakota Johnson.

    Coloreds commit the majotity of crimes in the US, yet want to be treated as law abiding citizens. LOL.

      Easy to be an asshole when you’re anonymous. You would never say that in person to anyone. What a pussy you are.

      • Jeb's pussy

        When I need your opinion, I will give it to you, slave.

    • Music Specialist

      The highest level of crime is done by WHITE people yet you still want to perpetuate this myth of people of color.

      I totally agree with Iced Cube, you are going to push our community into treating you like you have been treating us.

      I am personally ready to start fighting back, shooting back, cutting back, lynching back, refusing you basic human rights and letting you see exactly how it feels to be subjugated within the United States.

        You must put down your Playstation controller first.

      • Music Specialist is a retard

        If New York City were all white, the murder rate would drop by 91 percent, the robbery rate by 81 percent, and the shootings rate by 97 percent. In an all-white Chicago, murder would decline 90 percent, rape by 81 percent, and robbery by 90 percent.

      Black Fecal Matter…You probably just as ugly as you are ignorant…..

    Why didn’t this tool spout his vomit when his “brothers” slaughtered each other in record numbers in Chimpcago?

    • Jeb

      Big shot behind anonymity posting online. Talk like that in real life and you’ll get a surprising response. What a douche you are.

  3. Tom Tracy

    Ice Cube the fake gangster who grew up in the Los Angeles suburbs!
    18 black people shot in St Louis over the memorial weekend but no reporting on that ? Mmmm all shot by other black folks.

    • Jeb

      Apple and oranges. Police are supposed to uphold the law and not impose violence upon citizens.

      • Geronimo

        What about citizens who shoot police? Care much?

        Didn’t think so, asshat.

        • Jeb

          Super comeback (sarcasm), but totally different topic. If you want to talk about that, let’s do so, Mr. Lame Assumption. No, shooting cops is not right. End of story. Damn, you’re a fool.

    So, we are taking advice from a gangbanging, woman beating, drug dealing, rapist who wrote a song called “f*&ck the police”?

    Yea…don’t think so. Keep praying for a race war, moron, and see how that works out for you.

    • Angelito

      You continue to post moronic comments. Hey, at least you’re consistent.

    • Seven

      White racism is based on penis envy. Always has, always will be.

      • Angelito

        There is a reason only ugly white women date black males.

    • Red Bair

      Never a gangbanger! He grew up in the white suburbs of Woodland Hills in a all white neighborhood! He is a fake gangster!

    The good news is that whites stockpiled guns and ammo after Obama unsuccessfully tried to take them away. If Iced Cubes wants a race war in the streets, we all know how that will end…chimps running for cover in their government housing.

    • Angeloser

      More fake info. You’re a disaster of a person…but one day you’ll die…so that’s something to look forward to.

    • Bad bitch

      Bitch never that, we stock pile guns too. You pussy ass white bitch. Come get some!!!! I’ll end your fucking whole bloodline bitch

      • Angelito

        Yes, but will you first loofa my stretch marks?

        Remember not to hold your pistol sideways while hopping around like an ape.

        • Al Jolson

          But you like that kind of thing. That’s what your dad said.

    Race baiting is an effective political tool.

    The people that really suffer most are the ones who believe the narrative and eventually sabotage themselves as a result. Reacting to things that don’t actually exist.

    Where are the yellow journalists, watching what they created?

  7. Stressed

    Kkk is on the rise tine to give them a doseoftheirowbmedicine

    • Bad bitch

      Im ready???? fuck the kkk. Bitch ass crackers can’t fuck with us. Thats why the police doing your dirty work. Fuck y’all pussy ass red necks. Eat a dick!!!

    Gun sales rose over 300% during the pandemic. This is good news. I have stockpiled 40,000 rds of LR22 (great for Ruger .22 rifle), about 10,000 rds of 9mm, probably 200 boxes of 410 shotgun shells, and at least a couple of thousand rds of .380 (S & W Bodyguard .380, great carry pistol). Just ordered an AR-15 and 2000 rds.

    If Iced Tea intends to start a race war, he may want to avoid my house.

    • Angelito

      You’re a liar and a big pussy. Talk big online, anonymously. Post your real name and address with a picture, then we’ll see things go for you. Yeah, I thought so. All talk. You sorry ass stupid motherfucker living in your mom’s basement.

      • Al Jolson

        Oooh, you are a big, bad, meanie. The “mom’s basement” comment was clever. How’d you ever come up with such a unique insult? Gosh, you must read a lot.

        I am temporarily living in a Minneapolis Police Station. Come riot, burn it down, then loot your Dollar General for toilet paper. Do what you were born to do.
