The Game is continuing to do his part to end violence against the Black community. He initiated a peace treaty between local gangs in Los Angeles Sunday where he put on an anti-violence summit in California. Called “Time To Unite: United Hoods + Gangs Nation,” the event was shared on Instagram a day before it began. Snoop Dogg shared hosting duties with Chuck. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti was also in attendance.
“I want to extend the invitation to all CRIPS, BLOODS, ESE’s & all other gang members, major figures & GANG LEADERS from every hood in our city as well as the surrounding cities,” Game wrote on Instagram.
Good morning world. I hope everyone slept well….. Los Angeles, on behalf of myself @SnoopDogg, & the honorable @louisfarrakhan I want to extend the invitation to all CRIPS, BLOODS, ESE's & all other gang members, major figures & GANG LEADERS from every hood in our city as well as the surrounding cities to our meeting 11am this morning, July 17th at 8039 S. Vermont Ave Los Angeles, California 90044 to have the much needed conversation amongst ourselves about our influence on the youth in our respective neighborhoods & how we can serve as better role models to them & the brothers we stand beside daily…. Because the sad truth that no one wants to face is, before we can get OUR LIVES TO MATTER to anyone else… We have to show that OUR LIVES MATTER to US !!!! WE have been responsible for more of the KILLING of ourselves than anyone else by a long shot & the percentages in which BLACK on BLACK, BLACK on BROWN, BROWN on BLACK, BROWN on BROWN murders are so fucking high verses any other killing of us that it is disgusting & this needs to be addressed & laid to rest !!!!! Don't think we can't change it & better ourselves, lead by example & make our city a safer place for our children…. Because together, WE CAN !!!! I'm asking everyone who will attend: DO NOT bring any weapons or anything illegal. Do not come high or belligerent.. We don't need any HOT HEADS or anyone there for the wrong reasons or you will respectfully dealt with & REMOVED from the building… We will stand as we are, UNIFIED. I'm calling ALL GANGS, of ALL RACES, ALL GROWN MEN affiliated or not & WE WILL STAND UNIFIED SUNDAY !!!! Our numbers are all the weapons we need !!! We do not need to be dumb, retarded or uncivilized Sunday… ALL WE NEED IS EACH OTHER… I will not lead any of you into a trap !!!!! LET'S do the opposite of what we've been doing & show the world that we are MORE than the problem… Thank you – Game
He added the gathering ways focused on a “much-needed conversation amongst ourselves about our influence on the youth in our respective neighborhoods & how we can serve as better role models to them & the brothers we stand beside daily.”
The event was a huge success, leaving hopeful attendees unable to get inside. A huge screen was set up so all could be included in the discussion.
The Associated Press reports Game – who was moved to start the rally to make a safer world for his 5-year-old daughter – was nearly in tears as he spoke about the loss of a former gang member he grew up with in foster care in Compton.
Shout out to all the homies from every Crip, Blood & Mexican gang who came out today in peace to show love & get down with the movement. We might not all be from the same hoods or share the same blood, but we are all brothers with one main thing in common: WE ALL WANT TO LIVE !!!! & today is another positive step in the direction of UNITY…. Thank you all for being apart of this. It's not about one of us… It's about ALL OF US !!! #HuntMovement #HelpUniteNationsToday #HATEUSNOTTODAY #HUNTUSNOTTODAY #LosAngeles #LeadTheCharge #FOI #NationOfIslam
The Game also shared a signed treaty between gangs agreeing to a cease-fire. It continued the message of anti-violence that the MC is pushing.
“WE have been responsible for more of the KILLING of ourselves than anyone else by a long shot, “Chuck said in an earlier post. “And the percentages in which BLACK on BLACK, BLACK on BROWN, BROWN on BLACK, BROWN on BROWN murders are so f—— high verses [sic] any other killing of us that it is disgusting & this needs to be addressed and laid to rest.”
We each have to take the initiative to create change within ourselves before we can ask anyone else to do so….. I am responsible for myself & I offer my hand to anybody from anywhere to shake it…… I LOVE ALL MY BROTHERS & I want you to LIVE homie….. If you feel the same way, reach out & extend your hand to someone & let's alter our futures one person at a time !!!!! I signed it 1st……… The opportunity to save lives is yours too if you want it……. OUR CHILDRENS FUTURE IS AT STAKE #HUNTmovement #LosAngeles #JusticeOrElse #NationOfIslam #CityOfRefuge #UnitedInPeaceFoundation #TheWayToHappiness #Crip #Blood #Ese #CeaseFire #BlackAndBrownPride [TAG SOMEONE IN THIS POST & LET THEM SEE WE ARE TOGETHER & THEIR LIVES MATTER TO US AS WELL] & I WILL ASK EVERYONE BELOW THAT WILL COMMENT NEGATIVELY & HATE…. WHAT THE FUCK ARE "YOU" DOING TO HELP ???
The treaty was sponsored by Game’s H.U.N.T. movement – an acronym he explained at the July 8 march to Los Angeles Police Department headquarters with Snoop that means “hunt us not today.”
“Objective: to make the Californian government & it’s law branches aware that from today forward,” he wrote on Instagram at the time. “We will be UNIFIED as minorities & we will no longer allow them to hunt us or be hunted by us !!!”
Minister Tony Muhammad shared a few words on behalf of Minister Louis Farrakhan, which promoted solidarity among gang members.
On behalf of the honorable @LouisFarrakhan Minister Tony Muhammad spoke truth & solidarity here today at the #HUNT gang/community meeting. Another power move by US, as a city unit to bring peace back to our LosAngeles. Truces were made, hands were shook & stories were told…. & most importantly, voices were heard….. WE are onto something & it feels good. The question is not, what has someone else done… The question is, what will YOU do ??? This is OUR FIGHT TOGETHER #UniteAllHoodsAndGangs #LosAngeles #AmericaIsCrying
