The mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, Louis Farrakhan, The Game, And Snoop Dogg recently teamed up in an effort to make a change. Both of the rappers are well-known gang members with Snoop reppin’ the Cripps and The Game reppin’ the Bloods. The goal of these two linking up was to spread the message in their hometown of L.A. that the black on black or brown on brown killing has got to stop.

The Game preached that when fighting for black lives there is constant contradiction due the high number of killings being within one’s own race. He touched on a very serious and eye-opening reality; It is hard to convince those who oppose that black lives matter or brown lives matter when communities riddled with gang violence are constantly killing each other. How does a group so oppressed stand strong against violence and fight for their lives when their actions don’t imply that they care about the lives of their own people?

It’s a controversial argument to make and no doubt stirred the pot among gang members, but the turnout for the event (which coaxed unity) shows that there are plenty of people who back this positive school of thought and change could very well be on its way!

That’s The Move!

The Message Is As Real As It Gets

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
