On social media, 2014 is shaping up as the year of the ‘challenge’, which has culminated in the uber-popular Ice Bucket Challenge.

Now, in the aftermath of Ferguson, Missouri, and the riots and looting seen after the death of Michael Brown, there is another challenge going viral fast.That challenge is being issued by U.S. Marine Malik King, to the “Black Community” and in particular to the “thugs” in Ferguson and elsewhere who he feels are far too often represented in American society.

After issuing his challenge, King brings up “racial profiling” and how it seems cops continue to target young, Black men.

“But what we don’t want to focus on is what we’re doing to contribute to the problem – even if just a little bit. We need to start thinking about how we represent ourselves, how we talk, how we act, how we deal with police. We need to stop talking, acting, and living like thugs, and start talking, acting, and living like men. Stop making the conscious decision to fit the description”.
Amen to that. Leave it to a Marine to speak to the values we all share, and to help promote cohesion,not division, like rabble rousers such as Al Sharpton.
