Jeff Bezos Donates 0.03% of His Wealth to Immigrant Kids, Wants a Fucking Medal or Some Shit

Lord, if headline writers were even sort of honest. This would be roughly the equivalent to a person who  makes 50K  giving $15 bucks to a cause, then getting all kinds of press sucking them off for it. Okay, so we’re calc’ing total wealth not yearly income so adjust accordingly. Also, needless to say, the government just gave this soul sucking jerk a huge tax break as well, not to mention that supporting immigration issues sort of just helps his business, so it’s not even purely altruistic.

Remember the huge stink Bill Gates made last summer for giving roughly 5% of his insane fortune…to his own charity. Amazingly, way better.

I couldn’t even make up this sort of ridiculous wealth inequality bullshit if I tried.

(From Tech Crunch):

“Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife, MacKenzie, are donating $33 million in the form of a scholarship grant to help 1,000 undocumented immigrant high school graduates with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals status attend college.

The Bezos grant comes through TheDream.US, a scholarship fund for Dreamers. The organization, which is less than four years old, says this is the largest grant it has ever received. In partnership with more than 70 low-cost colleges in 15 states, TheDream.US offers individual students $33,000 in scholarship aid over four years to help them cover the cost of tuition, fees and books.

“My dad came to the U.S. when he was 16 as part of Operation Pedro Pan,” Bezos said in a statement. “He landed in this country alone and unable to speak English. With a lot of grit and determination – and the help of some remarkable organizations in Delaware – my dad became an outstanding citizen, and he continues to give back to the country that he feels blessed him in so many ways. MacKenzie and I are honored to be able to help today’s Dreamers by funding these scholarships.”

Earlier this week, Bezos became the richest person of all time when his net worth reached $105.1 billion. At the time of publication, Bezos is worth $108 billion. Bezos’ donation also comes at a time when Congress and the White House are battling it out over the future of DACA.
