The Muska Declines HOF Induction Nominates Kareem Campbell

An Example of Integrity from a Legend

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 instead. 

In part, Muska writes on Instagram:

I am respectfully declining my induction into the Skateboarding Hall Of Fame this year. I believe there is a global awakening taking place and I find it only right to also respectfully suggest that you allow Kareem Campbell to take my place.”⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Muska goes on to say, “In no way is this an attack on The Skateboarding Hall Of Fame or any other media outlet, it’s just something I truly believe will be positive for the image of skateboarding and this world.”⁠

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). Others that were inducted this year include Ray Barbee, John “Tex” Gibson, Dennis Martinez, Paul Schmitt, and a number of others.

The world can learn a lot from skateboarding and the people in its community.
