The Muska did one of the most amazing things a human could. Muska respectfully declined his induction into the Skateboarding Hall Of Fame this year and suggested Kareem Campbell take his spot.

In part, Muska writes on Instagram:

“I know Kareem would of made it in the Hall Of Fame without this suggestion, but I truly believe that now is the time to show the world the racial boundaries that Skateboarding, especially “Street Skateboarding” breaks.”

If that didn’t get you, this will. Kareem responded!

“My HOF moment will surely come and if not I already feel it because of the love and respect you have always shown. All politics to the side, you deserve this HOF induction and I proudly stand with you always and forever my brother.”

No word yet from the International Skateboarding Hall of Fame and the International Association of Skateboard Companies (IASC). The world can learn a lot from skating and the people in its community.

Skateistan is an international non-profit empowering youth through skateboarding and education in Afghanistan, Cambodia, and South Africa. Recently, they launched a new campaign called “It’s Her Turn.” The campaign’s goal is to empower and inspire girls to be whatever they dream of being.

Around half of Skateistan students are girls and all Skate Schools have female General Managers, and because of their programs, the highest concentration of female skaters in the world can be found in northern Afghanistan.

“It’s Her Turn” is hoping to raise $75,000 to help benefit Skateistan students and will run until the end of July. You can donate here.
