Game says racism is alive as he discusses what he feels are discriminatory practices taking place in Los Angeles.
“Racism is, I guess, still alive,” Game says to TMZ. “The place where they do Toxic, which is Club Lure, is meeting with the LAPD and I guess the LAPD is having these town hall meetings. They don’t want minorities again, Blacks, athletes, in their clubs.
“At the end of the day, me and my crew alone spent maybe $250,000 last year in Toxic, just that club,” he adds. “So, I don’t really know what’s up, what I’m gonna do about it. I talked to my lawyer yesterday and he was pretty upset about it. He’s looking for whoever is issuing that threat. They’re saying they’re gonna shut clubs down if they let rappers, athletes, minorities in. How do you do that? They’re saying you can’t have any celebrities on your flyer or let any big celebrities promote the club or they’re threatening to shut down the club.”
Game says he is boycotting Toxic, an event held in Club Lure.
“Is racism fixed?” Game says. “Has anybody fixed it? Whenever something like that is going on, I’m more than happy to stand up and be the voice of the people.”
LAPD and Lure have denied the allegations.
Game and T.I. were recently involved in a standoff with the Los Angeles Police Department. The two were outside of Supperclub, another establishment also owned by the people who own Lure. They confronted police officers over what they felt was the wrongful beating of an associate at the time.
