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.

Thank you.

Go fund me has done other shitty things as well.

Why do you think it’s so important to have a characters sexuality no matter if it's gay/straight/bi be the main focus in video games? What’s the point of it? Isn't the point of video games to escape reality and have fun not worry about which character like which sex?

thisgirlgames answered:

Your point would be somewhat valid if it weren’t for the fact that there are still a disgustingly large amount of people who do worry “about which character likes which sex” when said character isn’t straight.

For instance, rarely does anyone ever say, “I won’t play this game because it features a straight, white male protagonist.” However, when a non-straight character or a female character or a character of color is introduced, you see a string of comments which read like a homophobic, sexist, and racist horror story. When a character who doesn’t fall into the “straight and male and white” category is put in the forefront, suddenly game developers aren’t making memorable characters anymore, but they are instead “trying to shove their social justice agenda down our throats”.

What these problematic thinkers are really saying is this: “I’m cool with the sexuality of this character as long as they are straight. And you know what? It’d be better if they were white and male, too. Otherwise, I don’t think I am going to play this game.” The fact that these people take offense to characters that are different than what we normally get is one huge reason why this is such a growing issue.

The truth of the matter is, representation in any form of entertainment, whether it be video games or movies or television, is important. It’s that simple. And if you have an issue with it, you are part of the problem.
