My grandfather, father and I all fought for this country. As many American families; sacrifices have been made to protect this country and the flag that represents her. Sacrifices continue to be made every day to keep this country safe from foreign and domestic threats. However, hot on social media is something called “stomp the flag challenge” and it has a lot of Americans upset. Eric Sheppard, a member of the New Black Panther Party, started this protest. Sheppard disappeared from the Valdosta campus around May 1 and is being sought by the police on the gun charge. Sheppard reportedly “self-identifies” as a “terrorist against white people.” College officials cancelled classes and ordered all non-essential staffers off campus in later April due to concerns that Sheppard, who was deemed “armed and dangerous,” would appear on the grounds.
