Anonymous asked:Hey the gofoundme twitter page just updated that they have closed the Darren Wilson campaign!!!
The campaign is still up and people are still able to donate. They just “deleted” the comments
So basically all they’re doing is hiding the obvious racism involved, making it even harder for people to show how the existence of the fund is inherently bigoted in nature.
Amazing. Talk about pretending to work for one group while stabbing them in the back.
So fyi to everyone, find another crowd funding website to use!
Reminder to my readers, take care not to penalize or bury currently running gofundme campaigns because of this; that’s exactly what the white supremacists would love, if the campaigns to benefit Mike Brown’s memorial fund and the health and safety of Ferguson residents - and all the other fundraisers for minorities in need, good grief - were to quit bringing in money and quietly die off because of this. It takes time for people to change platforms.
But yes, unless they do a 180 and get rid of this piece of shit and make a huge public apology, I fully intend to avoid using their website in future and recommend that others also avoid it.
