Snoop Dogg and the Game led a peaceful march Friday to Los Angeles Police Department headquarters, where they urged improved relations between police and minority communities.
The rappers organized the demonstration hours after five police officers were shot to death in Dallas. In a posting on his Instagram account announcing the march, the Game said women and children should stay home and men of color should march to make law enforcement “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,” the posting said.
Snoop and the Game arrived at headquarters with about 100 marchers as a new class of 37 police recruits were graduating. Snoop shook hands with police officials and told reporters he hoped his presence would help reintroduce the black community to the department and open a dialogue.
