The online fundraising platform GoFundMe is profiting off racially-motivated donors, some of whom are celebrating the police killing of Michael Brown.

 

Join our campaign demanding that GoFundMe return these profits and take down the Darren Wilson fundraising pages. It only takes a moment.

 

In the aftermath of Michael Brown’s death, a fundraising effort was started to support Darren Wilson, the officer responsible for killing the unarmed Black teenager.

 

Over $433,000 has been raised, and GoFundMe takes 5% of every donation processed. This means the company has made more than $21,000.

 

Take a look at some of the donor comments below. (1) They will make your blood boil.

 

“Waste of good ammo. It’s my privilege to buy you a replacement box.”

 

“I thank all Police…protecting normal Americans from aggressive and entitled primitive savages.”

 

“Black people can be their own enemy and I am not white…He was shot 6 times cause the giant wouldn’t stop or die. Evil people don’t die quick”

 

“Let this ‘GoFundMe’ serve as an example to all cops in America: The general public will support you, especially if you pull the trigger on violent criminal thugs.”

 

That last comment is chilling, and not just because it indicts and criminalizes Black youth like Michael Brown. But because it lowers the social and financial costs of killing Black men and boys. That’s the most insidious impact of this fundraiser. It sends the message that you will be supported in the aftermath of taking Black life.

 

We’ve seen this before. Racist right-wingers flocked to George Zimmerman’s defense in the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin murder, creating a climate of sympathy for perpetrators of violence against Black teens.

 

GoFundMe is the world’s #1 personal fundraising site and if we can push them to take a stand against the Darren Wilson fundraisers, it will send a strong signal. That it’s not okay to fundraise on behalf of the shooter in the aftermath of a police killing. That it won’t be tolerated, at least not on the largest and most popular platforms.

 

Add your name.

 

After a public outcry on Twitter, GoFundMe has taken down the hateful comments listed above, but the fundraising campaign is still up.

 

The thing is: simply hiding the comments is not enough. In fact, it may even do more harm because it hides the real motivations behind this type of fundraising drive.

 

Since we’ve started this accountability campaign, GoFundMe has felt the pressure, responding to us and publicly changing its terms of services. But it’s not enough.

 

Profiting off the killing of Michael Brown is not okay. Profiting off racially-motivated donors is not okay. Disturbing fundraising efforts like these have no place on the world’s most popular crowdfunding platform.

 

Right now, as we head into a Weekend of Resistance in Ferguson, we can pressure GoFundMe to end the Darren Wilson fundraising drive.

 

Tell GoFundMe: Don’t profit from donations to Darren Wilson, and take down the fundraising pages immediately.

 

Thanks and peace,

–Arisha, Rashad, Matt, and Bhavik for the ColorOfChange team

 

GoFundMe: Stop profiting from racially-motivated donors, celebrating Michael Brown’s death

 

*UPDATE* – The Darren Wilson GoFundMe pages have raised over $433K for the officer responsible for killing Michael Brown. Help us reach 434,000 strong against them: one signer for every dollar they’ve raised. We’re already at 115,000 signatures and growing.

*UPDATE 2* – A Darren Wilson supporter has taken down the first page, but GoFundMe refuses to take down the second page and strengthen its use policy so that future Darren Wilsons can’t profit hundreds of thousands of dollars on their platform in the aftermath of taking Black Life.

*UPDATE 3* – Instead of taking down the Darren Wilson fundraising pages, GoFundMe threatened us with a Cease and Desist letter. But we refuse to be silenced. We responded by putting up this billboard ad in San Diego, right by GoFundMe’s offices:

 

GFM_billboard_bright_closeup_310px

 

Here’s the letter we’ll send to GoFundMe executives on your behalf. You can add a personal comment using the box provided.

 

Dear GoFundMe co-founders Brad Damphousse and Andy Ballester, and Kelsea of GoFundMe Customer Happiness,

 

I write demanding that you return any profits from donations for Darren Wilson on your platform. Further, please take down any related fundraising pages.

 

Your own terms of service prohibit “items that promote hate, violence, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” If Darren Wilson is charged, then it would stand to reason that these fundraisers are in violation of your terms, specifically “financial exploitation of a crime.”

 

GoFundMe should return any money it has made from Darren Wilson fundraising pages, and take them down immediately. Profiting off the killing of Michael Brown is not okay. Profiting off of racially-motivated donors is not okay.

 

These types of disturbing fundraising efforts have no place on the world’s #1 personal fundraising site.

Sincerely,

Add Your Name

Greetings world, we are Anonymous.

 

 

I was talking with a loved one about the past 30 days, the time since we first became aware of Eric Garner’s murder (July 17th, 2014) until last afternoon and the murder of Michael Brown….thrown in between those murders by the murder of John Crawford…..ALL by those with the motto “To Serve And Protect“….the Police. Law Enforcement. The Man.

 

I began to ponder how many United States occupants have been murdered by the very people employed to protect ALL American people and the visitors on American soil.

Police: Michael Brown shot after altercation

 

From Associated Press:

 

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP)St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar says the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown came after an altercation with police.

 

Belmar said at a news conference Sunday morning that a Ferguson Police officer had an encounter with two people. He says one person allegedly pushed the officer back into patrol car and assaulted the officer.

 

He says there was a struggle over the officers’ weapon and one shot was fired in the car. The officer then got out of his vehicle and shot at “a subject.”

 

He says the man suffered more than a couple gunshots, but “not many more than that.”

 

About 200 people rallied Sunday morning outside of the Ferguson Police Department to protest Brown’s death. They chanted “we want answers” and “no justice, no peace.”

 

Thank you Associated Press.

 

Ferguson, Missouri Police Chief Tom Jackson, who had scheduled a 10:30 AM news conference, was a no show, protesters apparently scared the Chief of Police away from his own presser.

 

THIS is the explanation given by Chief Jon Belmer of St. Louis County Missouri Police, where is Ferguson Police Chief Tom Jackson? Why Is Chief Jackson hiding?

Police: Black Teen Shot After Altercation

 

Published on Aug 10, 2014

A local police chief police says Saturday’s fatal shooting of a black teenager in suburban St. Louis, Missouri came after an altercation with police. The shooting has prompted protests, and the officer has been placed on administrative leave. (Aug. 10)

 

 

Why is Ferguson Police Chief of Ferguson Police officer who shot Michael Brown TEN times, not out front giving us an explanation why this murder took place? Why is this bogus explanation vastly different from several witnesses who were on scene….such as this…..

 

Witnesses tell News 4 that Mike Brown, 18, was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot multiple times by the a Ferguson police officer. Police have not confirmed those claims and they have not released any details of the incident other than an officer was involved and that he has been placed on administrative leave.

 

Dorian Johnson tells News 4 he was walking with Brown when the officer confronted them and drew his weapon: 

“He (the officer) shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said Dorian Johnson, a friend Brown’s. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.”

 

St. Louis County NAACP President Esther Haywood told News 4 that Brown was shot once by the officer and then an additional nine times as he lie in the street. Police have not confirmed that account.

 

Ferguson police gunned down 17 year old Michael Brown as he and a friend walked down the street. A witness stated police pulled up to the two boys and said “Get the fuck on the sidewalk”. According to a witness police grabbed the kid around the neck and repeatedly shot the unarmed kid

Ferguson police gunned down 17 year old Michael Brown as he and a friend walked down the street. A witness stated police pulled up to the two boys and said “Get the fuck on the sidewalk”. According to a witness police grabbed the kid around the neck and repeatedly shot the unarmed kid

 

SO, we’re to believe a caucasian police officer from the Ferguson Police department was doing a “George Zimmerman” and actually fighting for his life, aka George Zimmerman, as 18 year old Michael Brown attempted to take the police officer’s weapon away from him. Thus Michael Brown being shot once, maybe twice, but not the reported ten times….was justified. We are to believe the caucasian officer while eye witness Dorian Johnson tells News 4 he was walking with Brown when the officer confronted them and drew his weapon: “He (the officer) shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said Dorian Johnson, a friend Brown’s. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.”

 

Michael Brown was college bound…..WAS college bound.

Mike Brown Shooting: Seeking Justice For Black Missouri Teen Killed By Ferguson Police, Facebook, Twitter Users Rally

 

 

 

Amid growing calls for justice, Internet and social media users are seeking answers as to why a black teenager was shot and killed by police near St. Louis on Saturday afternoon. The victim, who was reportedly unarmed, is being identified on social media as Michael Brown, 18, a recent high school graduate.

 

Authorities confirmed Brown was shot by police in Ferguson, Missouri, a predominately African-American suburb of St. Louis. Few details of the shooting are currently known, but Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson told the AP a second person involved in the altercation is being questioned. As of yet, the person has not been arrested or charged.

 

Following news of the shooting, calls for justice spread quickly throughout the Internet on Saturday and continued into Sunday when Brown’s name trended on Twitter for several hours, along with hashtags such as #JusticeForMike. Several “Justice for Mike” pages popped up on Facebook as well, with one page amassing several hundred “likes” per hour as of Sunday afternoon. Another Facebook page had attracted nearly 4,000 likes before it was removed without explanation Sunday.

 

A photo of a man identified by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch as Louis Head — Brown’s stepfather — was widely circulated on Twitter and Facebook Sunday. In it, the man is holding a sign that reads “Ferguson police just executed my unarmed son!!!”

 

Michael Brown's stepfather holds a sign which reads, "Ferguson Police Just Executed My Unarmed Son!!!"

 

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Brown was a 2014 graduate of Normandy High School and was scheduled to begin classes on Monday at Vatterott College  career training institute. Shortly after the shooting, hundreds of outraged Ferguson residents spilled out of their apartments and confronted local authorities, shouting obscenities and threating comments like “kill the police.” About 100 protesters also gathered outside Ferguson police headquarters chanting, “No Justice! No Peace!” the Post-Dispatch reported.

 

John Gaskin, a member of the St. Louis County NAACP, likened the incident to the deaths of Trayvon Martin in Florida and Eric Garner in New York, the latter of whom died at the hands of the NYPD after an altercation in Staten Island last month. AP reported Gaskin said the FBI should intervene quickly to “protect the integrity” of the investigation into Brown’s death. “With the recent events of a young man killed by the police in New York City and with Trayvon Martin and with all the other African-American young men that have been killed by police officers … this is a dire concern to the NAACP, especially our local organization,” Gaskin said.

Mothers of Black and Brown sons and even of Black and Brown daughters must caution their children to be wary on the streets of their neighborhoods. They must caution their children to be afraid of the police. They must be afraid each time their children go out to play, go to the store even go to school; they must be afraid their child may not return. Other mothers, an estimated five hundred (500) a year bury their children due to police violence; violence that is rarely prosecuted, frequently ignored by the press and all too often excused as ‘justified’.

Racism is not dead in this nation. Shame on any of us for trying to bury the inherent and blatant racism of the United States and its people, it has always been part of our makeup and it has come roaring back in its full and awful glory in the past decade, especially since the election of our current President. It did not start in 2007 with his win over John McCain though, it started emerging as accepted political and social fodder long before this, the best example is New York City and the Stop and Frisk policy initiated under Rudy Giuliani and escalated under Michael Bloomberg.

It seems instead of moving forward toward more acceptance of diversity within society we are reverting to our inglorious past of injustice, lynch mob mentality and criminalization based on melanoma content.

Jon Stewart Rips Republican Paranoia Over Refugee Children

 

 

 

I listened to a news report this morning that told me the Governor of the state I vote in, Iowa, has made a public statement that immigrant children are NOT welcome in “His” state of Iowa.

 

Just sit back and read along……

 

Terry Edward Branstad (born November 17, 1946) is an American politician who is the 42nd Governor of Iowa, in office since January 2011. Branstad was also the 39th Governor of Iowa from 1983 to 1999, and he was President of Des Moines University from 2003 to 2009. He is a member of the Republican Party. Branstad is the longest-serving governor in Iowa history, and the second-longest serving governor in U.S. history.

 

In his 2010 political comeback, Branstad won a three-way primary election for the Republican nomination to run for governor in the general election. He faced incumbent Governor Chet Culver, a Democrat, and four third party candidates on November 2, 2010. He won the general election in November, defeating Culver by 52.9% to 43.1%.

 

Branstad entered the 2010 race as the front runner for both the primary and general elections. Independent polling in 2009 indicated that his approval ratings hovered in the 70% range. He was widely seen as the front runner for the Republican nomination, and had wide leads in aggregate polling against the scandal-ravaged Governor Culver. He won the Republican primary with 50.4% of the popular vote, 9.5 percentage points ahead of his nearest competitor.

 

On January 15, 2014, Branstad officially launched his re-election campaign for what would be an unprecedented sixth four-year term as Iowa governor, which would also make him the longest-serving governor in U.S. history (breaking the record held by George Clinton of New York, who served 21 years from 1777 to 1795, and from 1801 to 1804).

 

Now I know the above stuff is boring, but here is where it gets interesting………

 

Early life

Born to a Norwegian-American Lutheran farming family in Leland, Iowa, Branstad received his undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa and his law degree from Drake University Law School.  After getting his undergraduate degree, he was drafted and served in the United States Army from 1969 to 1971, serving as an MP (Military Police), and was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for meritorious service; he once recalled that he arrested actress Jane Fonda for coming onto post at Arlington National Cemetery, where she was planning to attend an anti-war protest. In 1989, he was named an honorary member of Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity at Iowa State University.

 

Allow me to repeat that, in case you missed the facts…..Born to a Norwegian-American Lutheran farming family in Leland, Iowa. Mr. Branstad is himself an immigrant based on the fact that his parents were/are Norwegian, as were his grandparents. The name Branstad is NOT Native Americans, so Mr. Branstad himself is an immigrant.

 

As the opening graphic states, unless your heritage, culture or lineage is Native American, YOU ARE AN IMMIGRANT.

 

One doesn’t even have to learn the history of America during the systematic slaughter and incarceration of the Native American people to know America is NOT the home of the brave or the land of the free…..unless you happen to be wealthy, caucasian and male. America and Americans raped, killed, slaughtered, murdered and enslaved an entire culture to acquire this land that current day protesters claim as “their land.”

 

These disgusting asshats who wrap themselves in the American flag, are themselves immigrants.

“You’re all f*cking illegal.

Have AmeriKKKans lost their minds? Have Black Americans become the new “House Negros” Malcolm X warned us about, beggin for table scraps from massa’s table for recognition & acceptance? Black Americans should be the very last race of humans agreeing with dumbass caucasians on immigration issues. Have you new-age Negroes forgotten from whence YOUR ancestors came?

 

This scenario is a made for TV movie straight from the land of irony…..

Screaming, frothing at the mouth, flag waving AmeriKKKan immigration protesters standing in front of buses that contain groups of undocumented “CHILDREN” as the buses attempt to deliver these “CHILDREN” to immigration reception centers. The signs saying , “go home”, “we don’t want you here”, “this is OUR land.” Do you see the irony? Do you see the dumbfuckery?

 

Just to be clear, so there is no misunderstanding……

Michael Dunn’s Sentencing Hearing May Be Delayed.


 

By Jueseppi B.

From Associated Press:

 

Michael Dunn‘s sentencing hearing in loud music killing delayed

 

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — A Florida man convicted of attempted murder in a confrontation over loud music will have to wait until at least Friday to see if a judge sentences him or waits until after the 47-year-old software developer’s retrial on first-degree murder.

 

Jurors deadlocked last month on the murder charge against Michael Dunn in the shooting of 17-year-old Jordan Davis outside a Jacksonville convenience store. Prosecutors have vowed to retry him on the count.

 

Dunn could face a maximum of 60 years in prison for the charges on which he already has been convicted.

 

The South Patrick Shores resident worked in Vero Beach as vice president at Dunn & Dunn Data Systems.

 

Dunn’s attorney on Monday asked that sentencing be postponed until after the second trial. Defense attorney Cory Strolla says he is concerned that statements Dunn makes at a sentencing hearing could be used against him in his second trial.

 

Strolla also said he is stepping down as Dunn’s attorney and asked Judge Russell Healey to appoint public defenders.

 

Healey, an interim circuit judge, said he has never come across a case with similar circumstances in 150 trials.

 

“I’ve never had a hung jury,” Healey said at Monday’s hearing.

 

A mistrial was declared on the murder charge after jurors deliberated for four days. The 12 jurors found him guilty of three counts of attempted second-degree murder and a count of firing into an occupied car.

 

Dunn was charged with fatally shooting Davis, of Marietta, Ga., in 2012 after the argument over loud music coming from the SUV occupied by Davis and three friends. The teens were black. Dunn, who is white, had described the music to his fiancee as “thug music.”

 

Thank you Associated Press.
