Jemel Roberson was the 26-year-old security guard who was tragically killed by a policeman. He was detaining a gunman at Manny's Blue Room Lounge in Illinois when cops allegedly mistook him for the shooter and fired on him instead of the actual gunman.

Outrage broke out after Roberson's senseless death, yet another instance of black men dying at the hands of police.

His mother, Beatrice Roberson, has sued the officer as well as the village of Midlothian, Illinois, for $1 million.

In the interim, a GoFundMe campaign was created.

"To honor Jemel's memory, a GoFundMe account has been started in hopes of collecting donations that will cover his burial expenses."

Friday, a familiar name joined the list of donors — Kanye West. West's name is listed 10 times with donations of $15,000 each, totaling $150,000.

The original goal was $150,000 and, as of Sunday evening, contributions had reached more than double that.

Many people are applauding the rapper's generosity.

Others feel West's kindness is more in line with the Yeezy they know and love, unlike the MAGA version that has been in the news lately.

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
