The Game has made good on his promise to actively help change attitudes about race in America. Thursday night, the rapper hosted a private meeting in a secret location with more than 100 Black celebrities to discuss race, politics and the continuous police killings of innocent Black men and women across the country.

Chuck posted about the gathering on his Instagram page, explaining that a new strategy was used to try to solve the deeply embedded racist issues that continue to cause violence against Blacks. The police shooting deaths of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, as well as the Dallas shooting in the aftermath, led The Game to start taking action.

“Everyone shared their objectives, opinions & views on political, non-political & everyday issues that have plagued us as a people for hundreds of years,” he shared. “Well, this time we’re collectively taking a different approach at burying these problems once & for all. This is a fight for everyone….. Not just blacks, but everyone…. & all races, ethnicities, cities, states, countries & continents were brought up & we had a very peaceful meeting where voices from all entertainment groups were heard & no leaf was left unturned.”

Actress Kimberly Elise was also in attendance. She expanded on what she called a “creative coalition” in an Instagram post that night.

With one I respect and appreciate my brother in the cause #TheGame @losangelesconfidential Last night many of us within the black Hollywood community came together to discuss what's going on in our country and what we can do with our voices and influence to make change. Discussions were had, feelings were expressed, most of all strategies were created. You will continue to see some of us out front others of us will work quietly yet powerfully in other forms behind the scenes but we. are. here. You have all always supported us in our art I want you to know that we feel the pain deeply and we support and are working to make change for our people and ALL people in LIFE. We love you. #creativecoalition #townHallMeeting #yourlifematterstous #blacklivesmatter #lifematters #onelove #wearethehumanrace

Actor Terrence Jenkins also shared a photo from the event, which included not only entertainers but policymakers.

Like, Elise, he promised there was more to come, though it is unclear what else has been planned.

“I vow to continue to use of [sic] my voice & platform to spread positive and peaceful change. MUCH more to come…” he wrote.

  1. o yes u want ur youth protected? teach them to not be thugs like u "celebrities" were when u were younger it wasnt cool then it isnt cool now teach them to actually work for there stuff instead of oo we gotta protect our kids from the police u teach them good morals etc they wont get into trouble to begin with

  2. A New Direction: Black Industrial Firm Invests 100K in African-American Start-Up Because ‘Black Businesses Should Pull Others Forward’

  3. We need for you guy to buy up a block (Black Gentrification) clean it up; bring in businesses that support the black family. This is what is needed from brothers like you Lebron and any other rich athlete or personality. We do not need brothers and sisters like you getting cough up in some mess by some racist ass cop because of your status. You know they hate you guys more than us poor struggling Negros? We have the foot soldiers we need celebrities like you to be our voice inside of these board room meetings.

    This is the only time I choose commerce over conscience because our brothers and sisters need employment. We must force Nike, Adidas, Under Armour, Puma any company that we as blacks endorse must support the black community in more ways than midnight basketball and high dollar basketball camps. The need to open up small piece work factories in poor run down neighborhoods hirirng young men and womem. Remember inner city jobs did not gvate prisons.
