Snoop Dogg and The Game unite in protest in Compton in wake of the murders by police on Alton Sterling & Philando Castile. The famous two opposing gang representatives, Snoop Dogg & The Game (Crips and Bloods) joined forces on Friday (Jul. 8) to protest outside the LAPD headquarters.
Asked about this by TMZ, Snoop explained “that’s not the answer,” but added that “there’s a lot of built-up frustration.” However, the protest he launched in Los Angeles was different, he said. “You can’t answer hate with hate. You gotta answer hate with love. This is a love offering.”
Standing in front of Los Angeles Police Department headquarters, Snoop said on Instagram that he wanted to reach “the graduating class” of new LAPD recruits. “This is how you make moves,” he said. “You make it happen. You get some dialogue and understanding with the new recruits before they hit the streets so that way they know that we just like them.”
The Game added his own message via Instagram, calling it Operation H.U.N.T., which stands for “Hate Us Not Today” and “Hunt Us Not Today.”

The objective, he explained, is “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 !!! Let’s erase the fear of one another on both sides & start something new here in the city of Los Angeles, a city we all love & share.”
In order to see change, we must be active in our Peaceful protests, getting our voices heard through rational discussions, and standing our ground without killing any one. Violence only begets more violence — all we want is Safety. Black Lives Matter!
