Samuel L. Jackson Issues Challenge To All Celebrities, Actor is trying to take protest against the “violence of the racist police” in a new video campaign that is strikingly similar to the ‘Ice Bucket Challenge’.[fwdevp preset_id=”8″ video_path=”dsAk54bdGnk”]
He started out making reference to the “Ice Bucket Challenge” and then quoted Eric Garner’s last words, before singing a song that directly called the police racists.
Here’s what he said/sang:
All you celebrities out there who poured ice water on your head, here’s a chance to do something else. I challenge all of you to sing the “We ain’t gonna stop until people are free” song.
Here we go.
I can hear my neighbor crying ‘I can’t breathe.’
Now I’m in the struggle and I can’t leave. Calling out the violence of the racist police. We ain’t gonna stop, ’til people are free. We ain’t gonna stop, ’til people are free.
Come on! Sing it out!
So here are a couple of important questions: Is he right? Are the police racist? Sure, there are police that do the wrong thing, but is it right to paint the entire law enforcement community with a singular brush stroke?
