What you need to know about George Soros

George Soros is a Hungarian-born American entrepreneur and philanthropist and political reformist. He is that kind of person who cares genuinely for the well-being of the poor and the voiceless and goes an extra mile to do everything in his power to correct it.

Many recognize his investment efforts and regard him as the biggest speculator and risk taker in stock markets. And that has been his motto, putting his own life and wealth on public limelight, to rescue the voiceless. His total net worth ranges $25.2 billion.

The most admirable thing about him is that he never flinches even a little when donating. Mr. Soros dished $33 million within one year to human rights groups based Ferguson as indicated by the Washington Times.

Through Mr. Soros’s foundation, the whole country was able to stand against the injustice and offered their support to Ferguson residents.

Soros’ acts of helping the racial discrimination victims can be linked to what happened to him and his family when he was young. Born and grew up during Nazi regime, he witnessed the murder of more than 500,000 Hungarians Jews. This incident has contributed to his constant fight for justice to injustice victims.

So when he heard of the criminal act where the police shot a young African American, Soros; immediately assembled his team to help the Ferguson residents seek the justice.

Though Mr. Soros aided the protests financially, he never directed it. Washington Times noted that the events erupted due to the public’s outcry and later joined by Soros’ Foundation and other human rights groups.

Besides the financial support the protests received from Soros’ foundation, it also gained more exposure through social media campaigns and media houses coverage. This enabled them to achieve their goals due to more voices.

After the incident, Mr. Soros donated funds to the Staten Island and Ferguson police departments to check their systems and uphold accountability and transparency to avoid future scenes like the one they had witnessed. Read more at The New York Times about George.

George Soros values a community that respects and accepts everyone. And to achieve this, leaders should be accountable and ready to drive positive changes. Soros knew this very well that’s why he supported leaders with policies that would benefit the citizens if implemented.

This made him support Mr. Obama back in 2012 because he believed in Obama’s agenda for the Americans. He donated over $2 million towards Obama’s campaigns. This was also seen in the recently concluded US elections, where he supported Hillary Clinton.

Mr. Soros also seeks to empower the systems that implement and reinforces laws and reforms. As indicated by Politico News, Soros donated $3 million the U.S. legal systems to fund their reformation activities.
