The Game Compares The Case Of Bill Cosby To The Killings Of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown & Tamir Rice

Here are The Game's thoughts on the Bill Cosby case.

The charging of Bill Cosby with felony sexual assault charges continues to generate opinions from all corners of the Internet. The previously celebrated comedian and actor now faces up to ten years in jail, and former fans and celebrities alike have taken to social media to give their two cents on the matter. Next up to speak their piece? The Game. Posting a series of photos to his Instagram page that read “Black Lives Splatter,” the Compton rapper wrote a lengthy caption about the case against Cosby.

Comparing the charging of Cosby to the non-indictment of the killers of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Tamir Rice, Keith Childress and Sean Bell, The Game lamented the justice system’s knack for letting officers who have killed young black men go free. Taking the stance that Cosby has been charged based on hearsay while officers have not been charged for crimes committed on camera, the rapper questioned why his alleged victims waited to share their stories. While calling rape a “huge deal,” The Game also shamed social media users for sharing Cosby memes:

Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown on camera, is FREE. George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, is FREE. Timothy Loehman, who killed Tamir Rice seconds after arriving on the scene.. on camera, is FREE. Officers who shot Keith Childress 19 times for holding a cellphone they thought was a gun, are FREE. Officers who arrested Sandra Bland & detained her until her mysterious death, are FREE. All of the officers who shot 50 rounds into Sean Bell's car, on his wedding day, killing him, are FREE ! I could go on all day, but you get the point... & again, y'all put Dr. Huxtable in jail off of word of mouth. I'm not here to say these women are liars or not because RAPE is a huge deal & I don't wish that on any woman of any color... But whether or not he actually did anything, we won't know because of the lack of evidence or proof & the duration from the point of the alleged assault to now.... Why did it take these women over 10 years to bring this to the light ? & while we out here laughing & making memes of a 70+ year old man who practically raised us all on tv as children....

The Game’s opinion on the Bill Cosby case rings similar to that of his fellow rapper Waka Flocka, who took to Twitter to state that he believes the comedian is being “framed.” Calling the entire case an “organized lie,” Waka concluded that the conspiracy was a ploy to bring down another “famous minority.” Actress Lark Voorhies on the other hand, took the stance that “Anyone who defends this man is defending the devil himself,” urging her followers to separate Cosby’s beloved characters from the man himself.

Peep The Game’s full commentary on Bill Cosby below:

I think it's crazy that Bill Cosby has a mugshot for alleged assaults 11 years ago with no physical evidence or proof besides these womens accounts of what he did to them an entire decade later.... But Darren Wilson, who killed Mike Brown on camera, is FREE. George Zimmerman, who killed Trayvon Martin, is FREE. Timothy Loehman, who killed Tamir Rice seconds after arriving on the scene.. on camera, is FREE. Officers who shot Keith Childress 19 times for holding a cellphone they thought was a gun, are FREE. Officers who arrested Sandra Bland & detained her until her mysterious death, are FREE. All of the officers who shot 50 rounds into Sean Bell's car, on his wedding day, killing him, are FREE ! I could go on all day, but you get the point... & again, y'all put Dr. Huxtable in jail off of word of mouth. I'm not here to say these women are liars or not because RAPE is a huge deal & I don't wish that on any woman of any color... But whether or not he actually did anything, we won't know because of the lack of evidence or proof & the duration from the point of the alleged assault to now.... Why did it take these women over 10 years to bring this to the light ? & while we out here laughing & making memes of a 70+ year old man who practically raised us all on tv as children....in other news.... The people we pay taxes to keep employed are still taking the lives of men, women & even children, ON VIDEO, are out here enjoying the New Year FREE & I don't see no memes of that shit.... & who am I except a man with an opinion....... So I'm not here to ask anyone to do anything other than pay attention & govern yourself accordingly - The Game #BlackLivesSplatter

Miley Cyrus Is Making Music With Mike Will Made It Again After Dissing Hip-Hop

Miley Cyrus recently revealed she’ll be reuniting with Mike Will Made It on her upcoming album, which could be considered a controversial move since shunning hip-hop last year. In a recent interview with the radio station 95.5 PLJ, Cyrus explained that her next album will feature a wide range of genres, one of being hip-hop.

“A song that [Mark Ronson] and I have done together is more rock driven, modern Debbie Harry or Joan Jett,” she said. “Then we've got songs with Mike Will [Made It] that lean more hip-hop and songs with Andrew Wyatt that lean more pop/alternative. I just have kind of everything."

This revelation comes a year after the former Hannah Montana star called out hip-hop and distanced herself from the genre in a interview with Billboard, which prompted many to label her as a culture vulture.

“But I also love that new Kendrick [Lamar] song [‘Humble’]: ‘Show me somethin’ natural like ass with some stretch marks,’” she said in the interview. “I love that because it’s not ‘Come sit on my d**k, suck on my c**k.’ I can’t listen to that anymore. That’s what pushed me out of the hip-hop scene a little. It was too much ‘Lamborghini, got my Rolex, got a girl on my c**k’ — I am so not that.”

For her fourth-album Bangerz, the former Hannah Montana star called on Mike Will to executive produce the effort. Pharrell Williams and will.i.am to work on the production. French Montana, Future, Nelly and Ludacris were also featured artists on the project.

Cyrus’s recent country-pop/rock effort, Younger Now, debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 with 45,000 equivalent units sold in its first week. The project as a whole failed to garner any certification from the RIAA.

Oprah Discusses Her Final Days With Her Mother In New Video

Oprah Winfrey opened up about her mother’s recent passing with People. The entertainment mogul recalled her final days with Vernita Lee, who died on Thanksgiving Day at the age of 83.

Winfrey reveals that her mother was in hospice care, and she attempted to find the words to say ‘thank you’ to her mother before she died.

“In hospice care they have a little book about the little conversations,” Winfrey revealed in an interview. “I thought, ‘Isn’t this strange? I am Oprah Winfrey, and I’m reading a hospice care book on what to say at the end.'”

Throughout those final days, Oprah revealed that she enjoyed watching the visiting nurses come in to keep her mother company, even when she didn’t need them.

“She would tear up when she saw them,” she explained. “You could see the appreciation and love she felt for them. Then, I said to her, ‘What a wonderful thing to be able to say goodbye,’ because she’s completely coherent and perfectly understanding everything.”

She also said that her last goodbye to her mother before she passed was very special. She was able to have her good friend, gospel singer Wintley Phipps, FaceTime in and sing the song “Precious Lord.” After the rendition ended, Oprah said her peace.

“What I said was, ‘Thank you. Thank you, because I know it’s been hard for you. It was hard for you as a young girl having a baby, in Mississippi. No education. No training. No skills,’” she continued. “‘Seventeen, you get pregnant with this baby. Lots of people would have told you to give that baby away. Lots of people would’ve told you to abort that baby. You didn’t do that. I know that was hard. I want you to know that no matter what, I know that you always did the best you knew how to do. And look how it turned out.'”

“I feel complete,” she continued. “I feel really, really moved by all the people who’ve reached out to me… I feel like it was as sacred and as blessed as a passing can be.”

Black-Owned Business Walker & Company Acquired By Proctor & Gamble

Walker and Company, the cosmetic company that creates health and beauty products specifically for people of color, has joined forces with Proctor & Gamble in efforts to keep maximizing their global outreach for black and brown people.

Founded in 2013 by Tristan Walker, Walker & Co. has created a slew of other flagship brands that make grooming products designed for the various textures of hair and beards that people of color pre-dominantly have. For men, Walker shelled out the Bevel Trimmer designed to help style men with more coarse or curly beards. Back in 2015, the trimmer made it on GQ's coveted Grooming Award List. 

“We wanted to build a trimmer that we fundamentally believe is the most advanced trimmer on the planet,” Walker told VIBE of the Bevel Trimmer. “We’ve innovated it in three ways: power, blade innovation and form.”

Because Walker has helped revolutionize the beauty industry, there's no denying he's excited about joining Proctor & Gamble family and taking advantage of all he could accomplish with its support.

"When I started Walker & Company Brands, I set out to build a company that would meet the health and beauty needs of people of color on a global scale,” Walker said in a statement. “Having access to P&G’s outstanding technology, capabilities and expertise helps us to further realize that vision, giving us the power to scale and bring new products to people of color, while staying true to our mission and continuing to nurture the loyal community we’ve worked hard to build.”
