On the day when thousands of Americans took to the streets to protest police brutality, Hollywood actor Samuel L. Jackson urged his fellow celebrities to contribute their voices to the popular movement. Calling out all the high-profile figures who poured buckets of ice over their heads for the Ice Bucket Challenge, Jackson sings:

"I can hear my neighbor crying 'I can't breathe,' now I'm in the struggle and I can't leave, calling out the violence of the racist police. We ain't gonna stop till people are free."
