Sorry, but no thank you ice bucket challenge...

I'm not knocking anyone who's doing or done the ice bucket challenge. Matter of fact I think it's wonderful that social media can help bring awareness of any illness whether physical, mental or emotional. 

However, where's the challenge to end police brutality? Where's the challenge to bring awareness to the death of our young black boys and black men? Where's the challenge to educate ourselves and our youth on the laws that are supposed to protect them? I'm brought to tears watching all these ALS challenges not because I know anyone suffering but because there is a city burning and no one is doing any challenge. Sigh.
