who cares. they are both people and should be treated equally: one is an idiot who joined the armed services instead of getting an education and the other is a ****** who got gold teeth instead of getting an education.

You're ******* retarded. One of them is a poor guy who can't afford heart surgery, the other is a criminal who is relatively attractive. If you think being poor is equivalent to being a criminal, then you disgust me.

Reading your comments, it looks like the point you were making is that his veteran status shouldn't be relevant (it's a job like many others), and I can understand where you're coming from. You just did a terrible job phrasing that.

Life isn't fair. It's often a popularity contest. And being attractive is a huge part of being popular. If you want to donate money to some army vet, go for it. But some gang-banger wannabe with a nice jawline is going to end up on MTV with millions of dollars and sweet old ladies are going to die of horrible diseases and nobody will care. Sad, but true.

yes lets compare someone that is likely gang related has lots of friends that prolly have illegitimate means of getting money to someone who likely only has family and a few friends on fixed income

he was an internet sensation for being attractive. There were multiple "news" outlets posting his picture. It wasn't any "gang" giving him money, people were genuinely obsessed with this thug.

I had to listen to it on the radio for Christs sake.

I really don't see anything wrong with this.
Rap = musican so obviously he is gonna make money if people like them
Soldier = no recognition just because he doesn't stand out from the rest.

I'm gonna get hate just because le america le soldiers freeduhms xDDDDDDDDD

Rap sheet... As in a list of crimes committed, not as in a rapper. The guy is a common criminal.

It's simple. The gangbanger got much more money because 1- People are morons. And 2- People will do anything to get in the most recent trend.
The ones who donated to the gangbanger had no ******* idea of what they were doing, plain and simple. They didn't thought "O, this man's cause is pretty reasonable, much more than that heart surgery guy. I'll help" They just had money and wanted to jump on the bandwagon because "he's, like, soooo cute and, like, he's on tv! ON TV!!!!!"
If the veteran had half the coverage they gave him, he would have received much more funding. Not because they wanted to sicerely help him, but because the media told them this is a trend and they want to feel included. Most people are drones, and will follow whoever has the most popularity.

I'd donate, but I don't know if it's legit. Anyone can post on Gofundme.com. I did a fundraiser one time and did give all the money to the charity I was helping. People can lie or steal and keep the money.

While I also feel outrage at the unfairness of life, I do know that lazy Internet activism does nothing to fix it.

Jesus Christ this post is retarded. Jeremy's case has more funds simply because it is more publicized. If the veteran one was as popular as Jeremy's gofundme, then it would be more funded. It is literally as simple as that. There is nothing wrong with America, there are something wrong with the people who donated for Jeremy, yeah, but considering that millions of people have heard about Jeremy, it really isn't that surprising. Please stop posting this contrived garbage.
#21 to #13 - anonymous (06/22/2014) [-]
that this gets funds at all...

I think veterans should be taken care of by all companies profiting from war, weapons industry, oil industry (if the war is over protecting pipelines or conquering new oil sources) etc.

I personally want my taxes to flow into education not into war of any form.

as i said in the post www.funnyjunk.com/Overpaid+Athletes/funny-pictures/5190595/ america values have been missed up for a long time. we overvalue stuff like looks and entertainment and forget the people who make the world work like soldiers and teachers.
