    a lot of white middle/upper class activism/concerns involve what I think of as "top of the tree" problems
    Not to piss in anyone's cheerios, but there is a reason the stereotype exists for 'educated elite liberals' who decide what is wrong with a community and assume they know how to fix things when they have never lived there or experienced those conditions. Oftentimes they are worried about problems that while important do not resonate with those lower on the socio-economic ladder.

      on Poverty and the one on turning California around.  Both were concerned with the issues that should be of significant interest to everyone, but tend to be seen as issues associated with communities of color.

      Maybe this old white woman doesn't know what anyone wants, but it is hard to see how anyone could have done better than to bring in Mrs. Mitchell.  She made my conference.
