It was fun at first.
Someone accepts a challenge to donate to ALS or be douched with a bucket of ice water, and they in turn challenge someone else to do the same thing. Or something.
Then the whole episode is recorded on a smart phone and uploaded to Facebook.
I just checked my Newsfeed. At least one out of every three posts is somebody getting douched.
The crowd-sourced fundraiser has set records, and is still rolling. It doesn’t seem to be slowing down either.
Hence, the title of this post.
ALS primarily affects white men. Apparently this young woman believes that the charity isn’t worthy, because the victims of the disease are white.
Racism is ugly. Doesn’t matter if it’s white racism or black racism.
