The Game Says It’s Time to Take Action Against Police Brutality
Early Wednesday morning (July 6), The Game takes to Instagram to voice his thoughts on the brutal police shooting of 37-year-old Alton Sterling in Louisiana.
The Compton rapper posted the difficult-to-watch footage of two officers restraining Sterling before pulling the trigger and shooting him dead. Below the clip, The Game posts a lengthy caption in which he says it's time to take action against police brutality.
He writes, "All we gone do is repost it & type "SMH" over & over again huh ?? Then we gone put #JusticeForAltonSterling & #BlackLivesMatter hashtags on Instagram & pretend that's us taking action huh ??? What happened to the generation of people who stood together, held hands & took to the streets peacefully or violently if it had to come to that & wouldn't move or be detoured from that stance until real results were handed over to us?!?!"
Police brutality has reached disgusting heights in recent years, and the latest incident is a tipping point for The Game. The "Hate It Or Love It" rapper is clearly fed up with hashtags and social media posts and wants people to take some real action.
