The past three days have been brutal ones in the United States of America, and it's no secret that people are hurting. We want action, visible change, in times like these -- and if we can't take to the streets ourselves, we want to see people we respect and look up to taking a stance, using their platforms to voice protest in a way that feels like they're speaking on our behalf.
For better or worse, for many people, the public figures hitting those marks this week are entertainers. Here are a few of their responses.
Snoop Dogg and The Game did actually take to the streets this morning, leading what the LA Times called a "unification march for men of color" to LAPD's graduation ceremony for its newest officers. On Instagram, The Game called it an attempt to "make the Californian government and 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 !!!"
