Officer Darren Wilson’s gofundme has more money donated than Michael Brown’s memorial fund. White privilege at it’s finest.
I don’t usually post about stuff like this, but please share this in hopes of more people donating to Michael Brown’s family. You can find the gofundme page: here.
I really love the juxtaposition here. Brown family: family in mourning, a family who has unjustly been robbed of a child, a family who has been failed by the very systems and people that are in place to protect them. Wilson family: police officers, money, money for police officers, no faces, put that money in the jar, just like that, good.
After recent rumors of Studio Ghibli closing their animation department and the low box office numbers for When Marnie Was There, it was time to make an appreciation post for a company that has created true movie magic again and again. So, thank you, Studio Ghibli. Hopefully it isn’t good-bye just yet.
