The Ice Bucket challenge has been over for awhile now, but Samuel L. Jackson has a new challenge for the celebrities who participated in the charity fundraiser.

The actor, 65, shared a video of himself on Facebook this past weekend, in which he poses a new challenge.

“All you celebrities out there who poured ice water on your head, here’s a chance to do something else,” Jackson begins. “I challenge all of you to sing that ‘We Ain’t Gonna Stop Till People Are Free’ song.”

Jackson, who was involved in the civil rights movement in the 1960s, then begins to sing:

“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.”

    You are a RACIST IDIOT……………How about don’t commit a crime and you won’t be arrested. You are another pathetic moron from Hollywood that thinks that because you’re famous…you’re smart…Well guess what ….you’re just another big mouth moron. If Eric garner was white, green, or blue the same thing would have happened. Shut the F up…..slavery ended before my geat grandmother was born..ENOUGH…we’re all sick of hearing about how oppressed you all are. You’re not oppressed…………just lazy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
