    On Saturday — the same day thousands of demonstrators marched the streets of major cities like New York City and Washington D.C. to protest recent police brutality — actor Samuel L. Jackson posted a video on his Facebook page, challenging "all the celebrities out there who poured ice water on your head" to sing the "we ain't gonna stop, till people are free" song.

    I can hear my neighbor cryin' 'I can't breathe' / Now I'm in the struggle and I can't leave. / Callin' out the violence of the racist police. / We ain't gonna stop, till people are free. / We ain't gonna stop, till people are free
