This thug is denouncing racial injustice due to the murder of George Floyd, but has no problem posting anti-Semitic imagery on his social media accounts. The profound impact that Jewish Americans had on the civil rights movement means nothing to this piece of garbage. Shame on him.
Ice Cube Criticized For Posting String of Anti-Semitic Images and Conspiracy Theories
By Billboard, June 11, 2020
While many of his peers have been preaching messages decrying injustice and intolerance, rapper Ice Cube spent Wednesday (June 10) confoundingly posting images that appeared to amplify anti-Semitic tropes tying Jews to the oppression of black people. They also appeared to nod to debunked conspiracy theories about the noses of Egypt’s sphinxes that first surfaced as attempts to manipulate black voters in the 2016 election.
The day-long Twitter spree — which follows a Trump-level torrent of tweets over the past two weeks — featured dozens of posts kicked off with a retweet of an image of a dog defecating on a Confederate flag, before pivoting to a series of image of black cubes — including one suspended inside a SIX-pointed Jewish star — which are sometimes referred to as the “Black Cube of Saturn.” The Daily Beast wrote that placing the occult image inside the star “heavily implies that the Jewish people are stoking the flames” of division, while the cube has also been tied to claims that Jewish people were behind the 9/11 terror attacks and COVID-19.
While a spokesperson for the rapper, 50, had not returned Billboard‘s request for comment at press time, in response to someone leveling a charge of anti-Semitism against the him, Cube wrote, “What if I was just pro-Black? This is the truth brother. I didn’t lie on anyone. I didn’t say I was anti anybody. DONT BELIEVE THE HYPE. I’ve been telling my truth.” He also added the statement, “You know who I am and what I stand for. I believe in actual facts and I stand on the TRUTH alone. LIES GET SPIT ON” to the former.
One of the images posted last week showed men with the kind of exaggerated facial features typically associated with anti-Semitic tropes playing Monopoly on the backs of black people. The shot came from a 2012 mural that was painted on a wall in London’s Tower Hamlets neighborhood and was removed due to its disturbing imagery.

hey, just to flag that the image of the mural you've shared is quite anti-semitic. I wrote about it here a couple of years back. I expect you hadn't clocked the connotations – but hopefully this helps. stay strong, and in solidarity x https://t.co/qTpgTaM1xy
