Big name actor’s ‘ice bucket’ spinoff challenges celebrities to turn on cops

Famed actor Samuel L. Jackson has a challenge for his fellow celebrities.

He wants them to sing about racist police.

The award winning actor issued the challenge via video message posted on his Facebook page Friday.

“All you celebrities out there who poured ice water on your head, here’s a chance to do something else,” he said. “I challenge all of you to sing the ‘We ain’t gonna stop ’til people are free’ song.”

The lyrics to the song are as follows.

I can hear my neighbor cryin’ ‘I can’t breathe.’
Now I’m in the struggle and I can’t leave.
Callin’ out the violence of the racist police.
We ain’t gonna stop, till people are free.
We ain’t gonna stop, till people are free.

The video has more than 1,875,500 views, with many of Jackson’s followers posting videos of themselves singing the song.

Others were not so happy with Jackson’s stand.

“Maybe someone should write a song called ‘Listen to what the Police say and you won’t get hurt’?” posted one angry commenter.

“Don’t commit a crime, respect an officer and you’ll live. Your parent did a crappy job,” said another.

It’s hard to determine how Jackson thought a song calling police racist was going to help anything.
