The Washington Post has engaged in a bizarre form of rationalization about why:
Blacks have historically suffered the income inequality and job scarcity that the Wall Street protesters are now railing against. Perhaps black America’s absence is sending a message to the Occupiers: “We told you so! Nothing will change. We’ve been here already. It’s hopeless.”What? Is this a back-handed admission that the hope and change Obama promised isn't available to blacks OR whites? I have a better explanation for why black membership at OWS is not even one third that of black Tea Party membership.
OWS is Racist.
