The deadly gunfire erupted in Dallas Thursday night as videos showing two African-American men – Alton Sterling and Philando Castile -- shot to death by police in Louisiana and Minnesota spurred protests and debate over police use of force across the country.
In an Instagram post announcing the event Friday morning, The Game called for men of color to take part in the peaceful march to “make the Californian & it’s (sic) law branches aware that from today forward, we will be UNIFIED as minorities and we will no longer allow them to hunt us or be hunted by us !!!” “It’s all about getting some dialogue going and getting us acquainted with each other, before a tragedy,” he told KTLA in an interview shortly before 9 a.m.
“I would be lying to you if I told you that I wasn’t saddened by what occurred in Dallas,” he said when asked if Thursday’s night events had increased his resolve.
