Along with the help of his friends, the rapper organized a group of over 100 Black celebrities and held a secret, peaceful gathering dedicated to discussing what can be done in the wake of our country’s recent atrocities and racial strife.

In a post detailing the event, The Game shared that the group dedicated the conversations towards discussing how we can “take a different approach to burying these problems once and 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.…” the rapper shared on Instagram. “We as a HUMAN RACE were all affected with the past weeks tragedies & we ALL want immediate change…”

Take a look at his detailed recap of last night’s community meeting in the post below.

Tonite a meeting was held. A meeting of African American celebrities at a private location & things were discussed..... Everyone shared their objectives, opinions & views on political, non-political & everyday issues that have plagued us as a people for hundreds of years...... 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.... We as a HUMAN RACE were all affected with the past weeks tragedies & we ALL want immediate change... So gather as you may, in groups or movements of your choice/race or gather diversified & have theses conversation.... They are all important. Keep an open dialogue with one another & that will resonate in the lives that we are all trying to save going forward, especially OUR YOUTH !!!
