The Game paid close attention to the Derek Chauvin trial, but he is still raging, even after the ex-cop’s conviction, because the tragedies continued.

The famous West Coast rapper tweeted out his rage after teenager Ma’Khia Bryant was killed in Ohio by a police officer. She had a knife and was defending herself against people who she called the police on.

“16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant murdered by police in Columbus Ohio. This is beyond sad. … There was absolutely no time between celebrating the conviction of Derek Chauvin & having to mourn Ma’Khia Bryant…. This is really numbing !!! … It’s really scary raising black children in this country. No matter how much we prepare them for these police encounters they can still be killed.”

The Game is understandably upset and he is not alone. The Derek Chauvin conviction is a win for social progress, but there is also a ton of work that needs to be done. It is certainly a scary time right now as police encounters have such a tendency of turning into tragedies.
