For Moe: #ows and Reality
Just wondering, but how many of the OWS folk are brown and/or speak say, Spanish?
This is important, and will define the "movement." I bet a lot of you are like me (and color isn't important, in this sense) but if you are, you're too broke to pitch a tent in Manhattan. Because if you leave your job, you'll lose your house or apartment, and other stuff you need to live.
Ironically, I have too much work to do today (a Sunday, no less!) so this will be a short post. But seriously, how can the poor going to become part of this movement? Are any in the 'leadership' of it reaching out to the working poor? It appears that there is a degree of what some would call 'global' solidarity. Do the factory slaves in Asia who made the cell phone cameras that are making lots of white, globally speaking financial top "1%" (and if you don't know, anyone making more than ~$40,000/yr is in the top 1%) activists youtube famous know that "someone is fighting for their rights?" If not, why not? Revolution that doesn't include the peasants isn't really "revolution."
