One of the first trends of politics I noticed as a lad was those who receive the most from the government seem the most disloyal.  Thus, the new trend among African-American college students, perhaps the most officially privileged group in one of the most wealthy nations in the entire world, is to film themselves stomping on the American flag.

A video of a woman dancing and jumping up and down atop the American flag is gaining online attention — and her actions appear to be part of a larger movement.

“My name is Erica Walker, and I’m about to do the Eric Sheppard Challenge,” she said in the clip, holding up a handwritten sign. “Hands off EJ. F*** yo flag.”

Dressed in a University of Michigan sweatshirt, Walker performed the “Running Man” dance on top of the stars and stripes for a few seconds —

— and then furiously jumped up and down on it. ”F*** yo flag!” she yelled.
