Especially the haters who are hating on FCKH8
In a new video from social justice-oriented T-shirt company FCKH8, several children from Ferguson, Missouri, an area that gained international attention on August 9, 2014, when a young man was fatally shot by a Ferguson police officer, sparking over two weeks of protest and civil unrest, addressing the topic of racism and doing the type of commentary they're known for.
But as is so often the case in their videos, the gay media, instead of supporting FCKH8, are instead attacking them.
Leading this attack on FCKH8 is someone named Aura Bogado, anti-feminist native American lesbian social justice warrior and giant hypocrite.. as in, being against capitalism and racism, yet she tweets and rants about "white men" while using every boogieman stereotype possible and trying to get paid for it.
Next up is someone named Franchesca Ramsey, a wannabee black comedian trying to get on Saturday Night Live. She too, rants about FCKH8 making money off tragedies, but lest one forget the only reason she's become another internet sensation is her viral video: Shit White Girls Say…to Black Girls.
It also seems Franchesca has a problem with black people participating in FCKH8 videos:

I think there's a term for this: Internalized racism.
And then there is Andres Duque, aka Blabbeando; a guy known for his backstabbing other LGBT activists while he seeks and maintains his corporate sponsorships with the non profit one percent.
Here he is trying to remind his followers he was first to call out FCKH8 and their controversial fundraising methods:
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en">In 2010 I wrote this laudatory piece about “Cause Commandos” and Haiti by FCKH8 founder. Still not sure where $ went. href
Nor have they ever criticized Dan Savage for profiting and creating a brand off dead gay teenagers.
To be fair, because I can be, FCKH8 does have a problem with appropriation, that is, they've been repeatedly accused taking images and artwork off and using them without the owner's permission. But they've mostly ignored those complaints.
They should probably ignore this one, too.
