Ice Cube took to Twitter on Wednesday to defend his stance on advising the Trump administration's "The Platinum Plan," an initiative to help black Americans.

Ice Cube's tweet defending his stance on the issue came after several prominent Black thinkers and activists spoke against him after Trump campaign senior advisor Katrina Pierson revealed that the rapper helped revise the plan.

Those who slammed Cube said that Trump has never done anything to address racism or eradicate racial inequality and is using rapper for his own image.

"Facts: I put out the CWBA. Both parties contacted me," Cube tweeted. "Dems said we'll address the CWBA after the election. Trump campaign made some adjustments to their plan after talking to us about the CWBA."

CWBA (Contract With Black America) is a plan the rapper released earlier this year to address racial inequality. In that, he had laid out 13 areas for improvement related to police reform, prison reform, bank lending and more.

"Every side is the Darkside for us here in America," he wrote.
"They're all the same until something changes for us. They all lie and they all cheat but we can't afford not to negotiate with whoever is in power or our condition in this country will never change. Our justice is bipartisan."

In another tweet on Thursday, Ice Cube said he will "advise anyone on the planet who has the power to help Black Americans close the enormous wealth gap."
