Over this past week I ve noticed that if you wanna get celebrities to get involved in something, attach a stupid challenge to it.
So how about we do one to raise awareness on Ferguson and racialized police brutality?
How about we start the “Light Ya Dick On Fire” challenge?
Who should we nominate first?
Don Lemon perhaps?

32 Year Old Chicago Activist, Leonore Draper, Fatally Shot After Anti-Violence Event
A Chicago woman is shot and killed moments after attending an anti-violence event that she helped organize.
Police officers heard the gunshots around 10:30 Friday night in the 1300 block of West 116th in the West Pullman neighborhood.
A budget analyst for Chicago Public Schools and a freelance make-up artist, 32-year-old Leonore Draper was committed to fighting gun violence on Chicago’s city streets.
On the committee of an anti-violence non-profit called A Charitable Confection, Draper was coming home from a fundraiser Friday night when she was shot and killed while sitting in her car on Chicago’s Far South Side.
"She was sitting in the car dropping her husband off who is handicapped," said neighbor Andrew Loss. "Some little girl was taking the man into the house. Then when the little girl came back out the lady, she was dead."
Police are still investigating the circumstances, but say it was after 10:30 Friday when they heard gunshots near the 1300 block of West 116th Street. After touring the area they found Draper with a gunshot wound to her arm. She was rushed to the hospital, where she later died.
Delk Adams is Draper’s former college roommate and the organizer of Friday night’s fundraiser, which she says was raising money to support a teen run charity that fight’s violence on the city’s South Side.

Celebrities react to the Ferguson protests
It really is not that hard to make a tweet showing genuine support, none of their images have been ruined. In fact, I only have more respect for all the black celebrities above.
