With just a day to go before before the US Presidential Election, Beyonce is making her position clear while encouraging the masses to do the same to.
Ice Cube caught flak recently, when it was revealed that he worked with the Trump reelection campaign on the Platinum Plan for Black America.
However, fellow rapper T.I. is now coming to Ice Cube’s defense, telling fans on Power 106 to give the N.W.A. rapper the benefit of the doubt.
His words below:
Shortly after Donald Trump‘s 2016 election as United States president, rapper Waka Flocka Flame took to a concert stage and wiped his butt with a Trump jersey.
Apparently, the ‘No Hands’ rapper has had a change of heart in the time since as he recently took to the Web to suggest he believes the business mogul-turned-politician is a better Commander-In-Chief than his predecessor, Barack Obama.
Almost seventh months have passed since Louisville, KY healthcare worker Breonna Taylor was killed by police in a raid-gone-wrong.
And the international outcry remains sky-high this week, following news that none of the officers have been charged with murder or manslaughter in relation to her death.
One person who isn’t part of the furious mass is basketball legend Charles Barkley.
For, during TNT’s pregame coverage of the Western Conference Finals, he offered words that have rustled the feathers of many.
See what we mean below…
Wednesday afternoon (September 23), a grand jury indicted former Louisville police Detective Brett Hankison on 3 charges of ‘wanton endangerment’ for firing into a neighboring apartment the night Kentucky EMT and aspiring nurse Breonna Taylor was killed by cops (as we reported here).
The decision was handed down after six months of pressure from civil rights activists, celebrities, protestors, and more to arrest to the three officers responsible for killing. The other two officers remain uncharged for the incident – meaning no one is being held directly responsible for Taylor’s death.
As protests erupt around the country in response, celebrities like Alicia Keys, John Legend, Oprah, Cardi B, George Clooney, Viola Davis, Kerry Washington, and more have taken to social media to express their outrage.

It’s been over 6 months since officers from the Louisville Police Department shot to death African American EMT worker and aspiring nurse Breonna Taylor in her Kentucky home after breaking down the door to her apartment in execution of a late-night, “no-knock” warrant.
Inciting a firestorm of controversy in the wake of the incident, the department did eventually terminate Brett Hankison and banned “no-knock” warrants but the state justice system at large failed to bring said policeman on charges (click here to read more).
That fate was changed when a grand jury presented its official report and their findings were announced Wednesday (September 23).
