Petition to Stop GoFundMe from Profiting from Michael Brown’s Death

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

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 Darren Wilson fundraising pages.

In the past week, a fundraising effort has been started to support Darren Wilson, the officer responsible for the police killing of Michael Brown. They were so successful with their first page, that they’ve started a second page, raising over $300,000 in total, so far. And GoFundMe takes 5% of every donation processed, meaning the company has already made more than $15,000.

Take a look some of the donor comments below. 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."
