Harkening back to the Million Man March in 1995, The Game and Snoop Dogg joined efforts today (July 8) to form a peaceful men-only protest in Los Angeles.
The Game posted an invitation on Instagram today, telling minority men to come out to Joe’s Auto Park. From there, they would walk to the LAPD Headquarters. He requested that women and children stay home because the men wanted to perform this mission on their behalf.
The Game also clarified that this was a peaceful protest and no one should bring weapons. Instead, their power would be in the number of men who turn out. “We will stand as we are, UNIFIED,” he wrote. He followed up the announcement with video of the group marching towards LAPD Headquarters. “We good, baby, we come in peace,” Snoop says on The Game’s video.
In his own video, Snoop explains how they’re interested in getting a dialogue going with the new 2016 recruits. “This is how you make moves, man, you make it happen. You get some dialogue, some understanding with the new recruits before they hit the streets so they know that we, just like them, want to go home.”
