    in OWS. It's the banks.

    Which according to the survey would seem to dovetail nicely with their viewpoint on banking.

    I'm not sure I'm finding the president's approvals among AAs as a cause for low numbers in the movement.

    Being AA and being one who supports the movement but hasn't been "out there" physically; and as one who is generally OK with Obama but vocal about those things he frustrates me most on (like adopting republican policies and too much attempting to work with them), I can't say why I haven't bothered "taking to the streets". It's not like I haven't before. It's not like I've never been arrested for civil disobedience.

    Not sure why. Maybe its the structure of it. Maybe some folks need more of a "goal" to work towards - something they feel like they are trying to achieve that's worth the effort. The movement is nascent and purposely ambiguous in this regard. I think it may be too ambiguous for us.

    I'm trying to imagine a brotha saying "I'm going down to the protest. Wall Street has to go." Or something.

    Just not the same pointedness as "I'm going down to the protest because I'm sick of being forced to drink from a different water fountain."

    Just sayin.

    I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.
