The Game and Snoop Dogg Lead Peaceful March at LAPD Headquarters
Snoop Dogg and The Game led a peaceful H.U.N.T (HATE US NOT TODAY & HUNT US NOT TODAY) march in downtown Los Angeles this morning (Friday June 8). The protest comes in the wake of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile’s murders by police and just one day after the Dallas police shooting that left five officers dead. The Game and Snoop used their platforms to urge L.A. residents to demonstrate peacefully and respectfully in light of the recent fatalities.
Residents gathered outside LAPD headquarters, where a recruit officer graduation ceremony was taking place.
Game posted on IG: “Calling: ALL AFRICAN AMERICAN MEN, MEXICAN AMERICAN MEN & any other RACE of REAL MEN with heart to stand with us today & walk peacefully to the LAPD headquarters. [LEAVE ALL WOMEN & CHILDREN AT HOME… THIS IS OUR MISSION FOR THEM].”
He added, “Do not: bring any weapons or anything illegal. Do not come high or belligerent.. We don’t need any HOT HEADS or anyone there for the wrong reasons… We will stand as we are, UNIFIED.”
Earlier in the week, Game responded to Alton Sterling’s death by posting on Instagram, saying, “Objective: to make the Californian government & it’s law branches aware that from today forward, we will be UNIFIED as minorities & we will no longer allow them to hunt us or be hunted by us!!!” he wrote. “Let’s erase the fear of one another on both sides & start something new here in the city of Los Angeles.”
