The Game also posted footage on Instagram, with the caption:
Tonite a meeting was held. A meeting of African American celebrities at a private location & things were discussed….. Everyone shared their objectives, opinions & views on political, non-political & everyday issues that have plagued us as a people for hundreds of years…… Well, this time we’re collectively taking a different approach at burying these problems once & for all. This is a fight for everyone….. Not just blacks, but everyone…. & all races, ethnicities, cities, states, countries & continents were brought up & we had a very peaceful meeting where voices from all entertainment groups were heard & no leaf was left unturned…. We as a HUMAN RACE were all affected with the past weeks tragedies & we ALL want immediate change… So gather as you may, in groups or movements of your choice/race or gather diversified & have theses conversation…. They are all important. Keep an open dialogue with one another & that will resonate in the lives that we are all trying to save going forward, especially OUR YOUTH !!! WE ALL MATTER & tonite we took another stab at the end goal & that is to BETTER THIS WORLD NOW, not just for the moment but to make an impact that will drive out NEGATIVITY & welcome LOVE worldwide…… The haters, naysayers & negative minds will exist… They too will be reformed as time progresses & change presents itself on a world scale…. One day at a time my people….. & as we all prepare ourselves for tomorrow… I will part by saying, I LOVE YOU ALL… Rest well ??? #HUNT
