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

Rapper Ice Cube still thinks President Obama‘s a cool dude who just gets picked on by all the jocks and such who want nothing to do with him. In a conversation with TIME Magazine’s Belinda Luscombe, Ice Cube praised the job Obama’s doing and used a schoolyard analogy to explain the divisiveness on Capitol Hill.

He talked about his music and the effects of profanity on young people in the interview, and then Luscombe asked Ice Cube about Obama and how well he thinks the president’s doing. He said, “I think it’s great with all the obstacles, you know. You couldn’t ask for more.”

He continued, “Obama reminds of the black kid at a white school that don’t nobody want to play with. That’s fine. He go in there and do his thing, do what he can.”

Ice Cube did, however, make it clear he’s not particularly interested in being too politically involved.
