And the church said?
It is now 3 weeks since Michael Brown was murdered by Ferguson PD Officer Darren Wilson. Officer Darren Wilson still has not been arrested, charged, or even brought to prison or court for the murder of Michael Brown.
But the FBI gets involved right away when a bunch of naked pictures of rich white people get spread all over the internet.
Daily Show correspondent Michael Che tries to find a safe place to report from.
"Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box."
"All self-respecting whites have a moral responsibility to support our growing number of martyrs to the failed experiment called diversity."
"I thank all Police, you are the ‘Thin Blue Line’ protecting normal Americans from aggressive and entitled primitive savages. America is surely at the tipping point."
Just a few quotes (in case it’s hard to read) from that collection of donation messages for Darren Wilson.
Does anyone else want to say it’s not about race?
white people are scary
(Images should be read from the bottom, up.)
GoFundMe is allowing a campaign for people to donate money to Darren Wilson, the cop who killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO.
When called on this, and how it violates their ToS, GoFundMe’s response was to delete the hateful, disgusting, racist comments from the donations. They refused to end the campaign. Apparently it is only “promoting hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime” if people can see the deplorable sentiments behind the donations. Somehow deleting the evidence of those sentiments magically changes what those donations are for: rewarding a police officer for killing Michael Brown.
This is absolutely a direct violation of GoFundMe’s ToS, yet GoFundMe is refusing to act. These are people giving money to an individual that gunned down an unarmed black teen. He is profiting from this killing, and it directly promotes racial intolerance and violence. There is no reason why GoFundMe should allow this campaign to continue…
… Except that GoFundMe gets 5% of the cut. In this case, 5% of 235k is $12,500. GoFundMe and Darren Wilson both are profiting off the killing of Michael Brown, and GoFundMe has decided they’d rather take their cut of the money than follow their own ToS. $12,500 is apparently what it takes to abandon justice.
Please, join in the boycott of GoFundMe, and consider signal boosting this.
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed, poor black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a high school athlete shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
FERGUSON POLICE ARE LIARS, PART 2
- First - they said that Darren Wilson was apprehending Mike Brown for a stolen candy bar
- Second - they said that Darren Wilson was apprehending Mike Brown for a stolen pack of cigars. (Store owner and their lawyer confirmed he didn’t)
- Third - They said that Darren Wilson was apprehending Mike Brown because he matched the description of a person that had committed a robbery. (It was confirmed by some Twitter sleuths that he looked nothing like the person and the robbery occurred an entire county away)
- Fourth - They’re NOW saying that Mike Brown was resisting arrest by brutally beating Darren Wilson and the 10+ shots were made in self defense
