Sarasota Florida — First it was the ice bucket challenge. Now, a new social media campaign encourages people to film themselves tearing down Confederate flags from people’s property or vehicles.
In what appears to be the original video, posted to Facebook on July 11 by Jamari Williams, a young black man runs up to a house and jumps to tear down a Confederate flag from the flag pole. Another male, in the driver’s seat of the car, filmed the ordeal while laughing and saying “no flagging’” repeatedly. #noFlagginchallenge snatch & run LMAO fuck the flag Posted by Jamari Williams on Saturday, July 11, 2015
“#noFlagginchallenge snatch & run LMAO f*** the flag,” the video’s caption says.
According to Williams’ Facebook page, he is the CEO of Blowin BANDZ ENT, a record label, and lives in Sarasota, Florida.
