The act of kindness.
The killings of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and five Dallas police officers stained the minds of millions of Americans all over the country last week. With racial tensions at an all-time high, many are fearful about the possible outcomes stemming from heated confrontations between cops and civilians. While fear has consumed millions, many continue to walk with aplomb. The Game made strides last week to help his community and his family learn the difference between good cops and bad ones. This move was arguably his most positive one yet.
The Game’s son, Harlem, starts a GoFundMe for an Arkansas cop.
In hopes of teaching his son the difference between good cops and bad cops, Game gave his son an assignment of trying to research any potential good cops in the world. His son, Harlem, 13, was able to do so and found this Arkansas officer.
The Game and Harlem are fans of Officer Norman.
“I had conversations with my oldest son [Harlem] about good cops and bad ones and he did his research and found officer [Norman’s] page,” The Game said on Instagram. “I was touched by how active he is in the black community where he polices.” Harlem then started his own GoFundMe page to raise money for Little Rock’s Officer Norman so that he can “continuously stuff his trunk with toys, goodies, food & other things to help him continue contributing to the kids and people in Little Rock Arkansas.”
Harlem is looking to secure $50,000 for Norman.
Because of Norman’s altruism, Harlem thought it would only have been right to aid the officer financially. He hopes that the GoFundMe page will net $50,000. “Every police interaction does not have to be a negative one and Officer Norman is changing that one person at a time,” said Harlem on the donation site.
