Ice Cube Calls Obama the ‘Black Kid at a White School’ No One Likes Playing With

Rapper turned actor Ice Cube thinks President Obama is doing the best job he can under the Ice Cube.jpgcircumstances, but the analogy he used to describe Obama is sure to raise some eyebrows.

When TIME magazine’s Belinda Luscombe posed 10 questions to Cube for an upcoming issue, she asked about everything from his children to the job Obama is doing as president. When she asked Cube how Obama was doing, the rapper compared Obama to an unpopular kid at school and put the blame on whites for ostracizing him.

Asked by Luscombe about Obama’s job performance, Cube answered, “I think it’s great with all the obstacles. You couldn’t ask for more.”

Cube added: “Obama reminds me of the black kid at a white school that don’t nobody want to play with. That’s fine – he goes in there and do his thing, do what he can. I think to me he’s done the best job a man in his position can do under the circumstances.”

Ice Cube was also asked about his music, more specifically, at what age he introduces it to his children.

“As young as they can sit in the car and roll with me. If I’m listening to my demo, they listening to my demo,” he answered.

When asked if he’s OK with his kids using foul language around me, Cube said he’s certainly not.

“Ah, no, no — no, no. No bad language in the house. My thing is, I know kids cuss, they do their thing, but I tell my kids don’t do it in earshot of any adults or you’re in trouble.”

  1. I think it's a very profound analogy, when you think about it!

  2. Excellent analogy…..

  3. I AGREE WITH HIM COMPLETELY. NOBODY UPSET ABOUT THAT BUT THE WHITE KIDS AT THE SCHOOL.

  4. Perfect imagery! As usual Ice Cube paints us a picture, gets our attention and keeps it real!

  5. Very few Republicans have anything good to say good about Mr. Obama—everything practically he’s for, their against. Seems like some of it is racially motivated, while on the other hand— it might just be politics as usual…..

  6. We should not be respecting or accepting the opinion of someone like Ice-Cube who played a pivotal role in the creation of NWA (Niggers With And Attitude), which introduced “gangsta rap” that
    has led to death and destruction in the Afrikan/Black community
    and particularly among our youth.

    • Really??? Okay…..let me see if I can explain why I disagree: Firstly, it’s really obvious how Ice Cube has evolved from the immature kid he was wayyyy back then. He now has his own family, and as he said…he won’t even allow his children to listen to music with obscenities in it. People have a tendency to forget all the stupid stuff THEY did as kids.
      Secondly, if I remember correctly, a lot of NWA’s music dealt with either societal issues, or anger due to the treatment of their fellow brothers and sisters…such as F*** The Police, etc.
      I’m not much of a rap fan, but if you actually listen to the lyrics, you’ll find that sometimes…they make a valid point.

  7. Sad but TRUE

  8. AMEN CUBE, UNLIKE SOME PARENTS IN THE PRIVILEGE SOCIETY WHO TRY AND HIDE EVERYTHING FROM THEIR KIDS INSTEAD OF TEACHING THEIR KIDS WHAT IS REAL, THEY THINK OVER SHELTERING THEIR KIDS IS THE BEST THING.. AND CUBE IS RIGHT ABOUT PRESIDENT OBAMA, HE IS DOING A GREAT JOB GIVING THE CIRCUMSTANCES.. HE DOING A BETTER JOB THE BUSH AND THAT IS REAL

  9. Well said!!

  10. Keep blaming whitie, while Blacks kill Blacks, LOVE being in White Hollywood, buy $10 million plus homes, cry like babies when Whites disrespect us (D. Sterling), keep calling ourselves Gangsters that can’t Gangster your TRUE White enemy etc etc.. keeping it REAL, sounds like Al Sharpton Lol.. It’s been this way for 100’s of years. Lol We have a Black Prez.. YES.. But have Blacks come together to build on it??? All of US???

  11. The part left out of the analogy is that “Black kid” was elected Stduent Council president. And he’s done a lot for the whole student body but won’t or can’t address issues specific to the other “Black kids”.
