The name of the charming woman in the video below is Erica Walker. According to to her LinkedIn page, she is a radio host. She is also the progenitor of the Eric Sheppard Challenge, which she demonstrates in the clip (viewer discretion advised) by jumping up and down on an American flag while chanting obscenely, “F*ck yo’ flag.”
So who is Eric Sheppard? According to Campus Reform, he is a black student at Valdosta State University in Georgia, a member of the New Black Panther Party, and a self-described terrorist against white people.
If you’re not yet inspired to take the challenge — to stomp on Old Glory while cursing in black dialect — the fact that Sheppard is wanted by police for questioning is not likely to change your mind.
Sheppard, who was one of the organizers of a campus protest against white supremacy and the “genocide of African-Americans” last week, went missing after campus police found his backpack unattended with his gun inside.
But while Sheppard is still missing and his father pleads for him to turn himself in, several people are attempting to start a social media movement with the hashtag “#EricSheppardChallenge” featuring a series of photos and short videos uploaded to Facebook and Instagram.
In other videos Walker uploaded, Marlie Mahogany, who appears to also be a local activist, also participates in the #EricSheppardChallenge because, as she says, “America was built on the backs of our ancestors.”
A military veteran was arrested and banned from the campus of Valdosta State several weeks ago after she tried to wrest an American flag away from protesters who were trampling it.
