The Game Openly Discusses Feelings On Sean Bell
In an eight-minute video from ThisIsGame.com, the Compton-based rapper stepped away from any possible beef with the G-Unit camp or promotion of his upcoming album to give his personal feelings on the controversial case.
I feel like how long [are] we gonna sit around and letem just tear away at who we are. First, as human beings then as young black American youth, he said in the videos opening.
Comparing the action of the police towards Sean Bell, Game contrasted the 1992 Rodney King incident and why he will be able to have an active voice today.
The Rodney King shitwe were all too young for that. I couldnt be as vocal in 92 as I am in 2008 due to the fact that I was only 11, he said. Now its a whole nother ball game. Its 2008 [and] Im one of the most potent voices in the black communityand just in America, period, he continued.
While spending a few moments to speak on the positive impact and possibility of having either the first black president with Barack Obama running or the first woman president with Hilary Clinton, Game re-addressed the Sean Bell verdict by offering his explanation behind why the three cops were acquitted.
See a lot of people dont see how these cops were acquitted. When you in the judicial system and youre fighting a case in the court of law, in any court in America, you have the right to a jury trialor you can let the judge be the jury. When youre of the lawhaving a judge be the jury is the route you want to take ten out of ten times. Judges used to be prosecutors, used to be DAsthey all in the system, he affirmed.
Looking forward, Game acknowledged his role in the media and public appearance with a promise to address this situation further.
Im going to use my voice to talk to my people. When I say my people, I dont mean just black peopleI mean all people. I mean American people, he said. Using freedom of speech to whoever will listen to me, Im gonna make it happen for Sean Bell [and his family] because I believe he was done injustice and he was done wrong, he concluded.
