In the wake of the police killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, The Game and Snoop Dogg invite men of all races in LA to join them on a peaceful march to the LAPD headquarters.
After a harrowing couple of days for the black community, the hip-hop world, and the nation as a whole, two of the West Coast's elite emcees, The Game and Snoop Dogg, have decided to lead a peaceful protest in their hometown of LA. They are calling today's rally Operation H.U.N.T., which stands for "Hate Us Not Today." The two veteran rappers are currently leading a group of men in a march to the LAPD headquarters, where the department is currently hosting a graduation ceremony for its latest class of new officers.
The Game announced the event to his followers earlier today via an Instagram post that shows him standing next to Snoop in a "H.U.N.T." T-shirt. He calls for African-American men, Mexican men, and "any other race of real men" to join them on their peaceful march to the LAPD headquarters. "Leave all women and children at home," he instructed. "This is our mission."

He told participants to not show up intoxicated and to not bring any weapons. "Our numbers are all the weapons we need!" he exclaimed. He then outlined the H.U.N.T. mission in a powerful statement of purpose: "To make the Californian government and its law branches aware that from today forward, we will be unified as minorities and we will no longer allow them to hunt us or be hunted by us."
