SAMUEL L JACKSON CHALLENGES CELEBRITIES TO SUPPORT THE MOVEMENT AGAINST POLICE BRUTALITY THE SAME WAY THEY WAS DOWN TO RIDE WITH THE ICE BUCKET CHALLENGE.
Y’all don’t even know how bad ass Sam Jackson is.
Y’all know this nigga was in the black panthers, and after MLKs assignation, he and some of his friends held the Morehouse college board of Directors HOSTAGE until they agreed to change the college curriculum and school governance. He was expelled and investigated by the FBI but it worked, the college changed all their shit.
“As a teenager attending the prestigious Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia, though, he seems to have suddenly lost his way, ditching his family’s traditional values for the cause of black radicalism. He was suspended after leading a protest demanding a black studies course. It culminated in a standoff with the local police after several faculty members were taken hostage, including Martin Luther King’s father. Jackson was suspended for two years and convicted on a charge of unlawful confinement. Soon afterwards he befriended Stokely Carmichael, the Black Power leader, and was monitored by the FBI, which informed his mother that he would most likely be killed if he continued to embrace radical black politics.”
