GOOD PEOPLE TAKE ACTION: GoFundMe Account For Chicago Hate Crime Victim Soars

The people’s actions speak volumes. They’ve had enough. They came out of the wood work to vote for Trump, and now they show their support for a white, special needs victim of a racial hate crime.

DennisMichaelLynch.com reported the generosity Americans across the country have shown toward the victim, and maybe also the distaste for the racial hatred against Trump and white people.

A GoFundMe page has quickly reached nearly $100,000 in donations for the mentally disabled Chicago torture victim named Austin who was tied up and beaten during a Facebook Live broadcast.

The GoFundMe campaign, Let’s show the Chicago Victim Love, has received donations from over 3,300 donors across the nation as of Saturday afternoon.

“The campaign has been confirmed ‘legitimate’ and the creator of the page has been working directly with the victim’s family,” said Bartlett Jackson, GoFundMe’s regional communications manager.

Creator Razor Sheldon launched the fundraiser on Friday and stated this reason for establishing the page: “To raise about $5,000 for the victim (whose name is Austin) from a couple hundred people.” Sheldon is thrilled by the outpouring of support and how enthusiastically the campaign has been received.
