    it is the latter who are most out of sorts, losing hope, alienated, upset about the future.

    My question is relative to what? And if the power of having a black man in the oval office is "symbolic" then isn't also, ipso facto, illusory by definition.

    There are places that I want to go with some of my thoughts but I wouldn't feel comfortable posting them here.

    I will say from what I've observed that the black that I've seen at OccupyChicago, most of them are young, educated, and middle class.
