Rappers Snoop Dogg and The Game led a peaceful protest outside of the Los Angeles Police Department’s headquarters Friday in the wake of the fatal police shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile.
Snoop said on Instagram that he wanted to reach “the graduating class” of new LAPD recruits. “This is how you make moves,” he said. “You make it happen. You get some dialogue and understanding with the new recruits before they hit the streets so that way they know that we just like them.”
The Game added his own message via Instagram, calling it Operation H.U.N.T., which stands for “Hate Us Not Today” and “Hunt Us Not Today.”
The objective, he explained on the social media site, is “to make the Californian government & it’s law branches aware that from today forward, we will be UNIFIED as minorities & we will no longer allow them to hunt us or be hunted by us !!! Let’s erase the fear of one another on both sides & start something new here in the city of Los Angeles, a city we all love & share.”
