The Game's Comment About Black Men And Women Has The Internet In A Heated Debate

"My mans trying to sound like a philosopher, but this ain't it..."

Published May 7th

Compton rapper The Game  has kept his Instagram open to his innermost thoughts and feelings as of late, but it appears some fans believe he could've kept his latest sentiments on Black women to himself.


Recently, the Born to Rap artist took to his social media to share his own message regarding the safeties of Black men and women. In the context of the semi-controversial post, The Documentary rapper stated:

"Black women make plans for next Thursday.... Black men don't know if they'll be alive next Thursday."

  2. The thoughts expressed in the statement appeared to be that of his own, as the Compton emcee confidently signed it off with "The Game."  However, what the west coast rapper may have felt was an attempt to shed light on the plight of Black men, others felt was a pseudo-deep attempt to be conscious gone wrong.

    It didn't take long for social media to react to Jayceon's message:

  3. While Game's PSA may have been interpreted by the public for the worst, there is no word yet from him if it's a simple case of miscommunication. After all, you can mean one thing, but accidentally meme another.

    One thing is for sure, as of late, the hip hop artist has used social media as a hub to show his support toward women of color. Earlier this year, the father of three showed an outpouring of support to the victims of R.Kelly, while also citing the injustices of Cyntoia Brown and the recent murder of Jazmine Barnes:

    "With everything going on with this whole Surviving R. Kelly drama, Cyntoia Brown's injustice & recent well-deserved pardon & the murder of Jazmine Barnes [...] now is the time to to give black women as much love and respect as possible."

    Just last week, he even wrote a poem to Lauren London, in light of the actress' loss of longtime partner and rapper-philanthropist, Nipsey Hussle.
