(RNS) – About half of content creators on social media platform TikTok are under 28. This is just one of the reasons why the popularity of Army Colonel Khalid Shabazz, who has some 43,000 followers on the social media platform, is so surprising.
Most TikTok users weren’t even born when Shabazz joined the military 28 years ago and come from a generation with little connection to military service – around 71% of young Americans between the ages of 17 and 24 would be ineligible for health or other reasons, according to a recent report.
