Orlando Jones: Expands ALS Challenge from Animal Life to Human Life (Video)

This entry is part 9 of 8 in the seriesFerguson MO: Revealing of The American Problem

Earlier this week, Actor Orlando Jones connected two seemingly distinct issues that have gone viral in the American psyche; the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and Ferguson, MO fatal police shooting of Michael Brown. Pledging to send $100 for ALS research, Jones poured a bucket of bullets on himself as a social critique of militarized policing that, according to Jones, is at the root of many deaths of people pursuing justice across the globe. Jones challenged that we look within ourselves as individuals. Examine ourselves for hate, and root it out if found. It was a brilliant move to re-assert some of mankind’s most persistent illnesses – racism, violence, and institutional injustice – during a week that competed for attention with the ALS campaign that had morphed into a brief social pass-time.
