The actor’s newest political calling is the most popular and likely closest to his sentiments, his background in activism being what it is. That is, of course, the ongoing campaign against police violence following several fatal incidents where black men allegedly committing crimes were killed while being subdued by the police with force. Jared Haftel posted a video on Vine of a song commemorating the memory and last words of Eric Garner, entitled ‘We Ain’t Gonna Stop Until People Are Free’, which happens to be by Samuel L. Jackson.
Furthermore he has called upon other celebrities and protestors to recite the song on social media and other information outlets. It seems that Mr. Jackson hopes to use the same sort of viral campaign that so successfully raised awareness about ALS, though with a catchy tune instead of ice water. Whether this will catch on or be effective remains to be seen, but it is surely in keeping with the actor’s history and beliefs. It’s a shame for him that, after so many years, he’s still “processing the same Old S**t!”
