George Soros, the Ferguson Protests and Michael Brown get Justice

What does George Soros, Michael Brown and Ferguson, Missouri have in common? Justice. That’s right, justice has been given to all three parties that have been involved within this incident. Back in 2014, a young 18-year-old black man named Michael Brown was killed by a former Missouri police officer named Darren Wilson.

On August 9, 2014 video surveillance captured Michael Brown stealing cigarillos from a convenience store and assaulting a store clerk. The Grand Jury in the Michael Brown case has this information as evidence and it cannot be denied. The Department of Justice also confirms this evidence as well. Michael Brown was accompanied by his friend Dorian Johnson when this situation happened. Learn more about his profile at forbes.com

Officer Darren Wilson was on duty during the morning when this robbery had taken place. He was given information about the crime from the Missouri police department dispatch and he was given description of the suspects. Eventually, Wilson knew where to find the suspects and he came across both of them while they traveled back to Johnson’s home.

Long story short, Wilson stopped the suspects. An altercation ensued. Brown went for Wilson’s gun but he did not get it. During this altercation, a shot was fired. The suspects managed to get away and then fled. Wilson pursued them. Wilson caught up with Brown. He then fired on Brown when the young man refused to stop coming toward him. Brown ended up dying from the altercation.

While it was clear that Brown and Dorian broke the law by stealing the items from a local convenience store; the fatal shooting of Brown was something that many black people and supporters of equality where upset about. Once again, the police department was seen as persecutors of black people within this situation. The black community was extremely angry with Wilson’s actions because many people who witnessed the incident claimed that Brown had his hands up at the time of death.

George Soros had been watching this situation very closely as it unfolded. He immediately realized what was happening when he saw the outrage that black people were feeling behind the death of Michael Brown. He had to mobilize people to get them out to protest this situation. George Soros knows that the treatment of black minorities by the police force is something that is systematically wrong within the American justice system.

Soros helped to fund many organizations to get them to protest in Ferguson. He also funded the Black Lives Matter movement which emerged during this incident. Michael Brown, the people of Ferguson and George Soros all received justice when it was ruled that the Ferguson police department has been known for unjust practices against minorities. Soros and the groups that he supports are now working harder to eliminate police oppression against the black community all throughout the U.S.

Dick DeVos, From Amway Vice President To Philanthropist Giant

Now and then, the world stumbles with a philanthropist. These individuals have triumphed in changing the course of history in many given countries, and the United States is no exception to that. In this article, we’ll be discussing the story of Richard Marvin “Dick” DeVos Jr., husband to Betsy DeVos, the newest U.S. Education Secretary of the new presidency team.

 

This couple is not only coming from an old dynasty that has accompanied the U.S. history closely, but they have been America’s greatest contributors in the fight for a better education system for children of poverty.

 

Dick DeVos is the son of the co-founder of Amway, Richard DeVos, who was listed by Forbes Magazine as one of the richest men in the United States. He came from a family with resources and influence but was thought since his childhood that he would need to put dedication in his life to achieve the greatness that his parents and relatives have achieved.

 

Richard “Dick” DeVos already began his career with the reward of the Vice President position, leading the Amway business in eighteen countries in the exterior. His leadership was exceptional, and soon, Amway’s influence and sales in the outside market jumped from 5% to 50% of the maximum sales of the company, all during DeVos’s leading decisions.

 

The man later attempted to run for Governor of Michigan, where he was born and holds a special care for the region. He did not make it, but it thought him a lot about the political world.

 

Dick DeVos would soon meet Elisabeth Prince in his youth, who also grew in Michigan and had a lot in common with him. They shared Potter’s House Christian School at that time and started noticing that they had a lot of ideas that matched towards what they wanted to see the world they lived in. They didn’t even notice that they would become one of the most charitable couples in the United States, but they undoubtedly became.

 

Potter’s House was the epiphany that made them notice what was wrong with the trajectory that the education system was taking. They wanted to make something about it.

 

Nowadays, the DeVos family is circling the news every year regarding their big donations going through many facilities and foundations, especially the one they created together, the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. They donated in 2015 alone more than $11.6 million of contribution towards many different causes, usually with the focus on helping children and revitalizing education.

 

The couple is following the steps of the DeVos family, who is expected to have donated more than $1.3 billion to charitable foundations. Causes that Dick and Betsy have favored have already cover religious acceptance, freedom of speech, artistic and cultural funding, healthcare for children and women, among others.
