Rapper and filmmaker Ice Cube has accused Hillary Clinton and her supporters of waging a war against black people, saying that her comments in 1996 helped to encourage police brutality against black people which then gave rise to the Black Lives Matter movement.
In an interview with Bloomberg, Ice Cube said, “To call your own citizens ‘Superpredators’ is pretty harsh and a pretty big indictment. It’s really not solving the problem, it’s just making it worse. Now the authorities feel like their justified in how they treat these so-called ‘Superpredators.’”
Ice Cube was referring to Hillary Clinton’s 1996 comments where she said America needs to bring “no conscience, no empathy, superpredator gangs of kids to their heels.” Hillary was rallying support for President Bill Clinton’s violent crime legislation, laws that Ice Cube says caused more harm than good.
“The L.A.P.D. did a war on gangs,” Cube said. “But if I’m a black kid that’s not in a gang but I look like a gang member to this white officer, than it’s a war on me.”
