  •  The point is? (0+ / 0-)

    They refused to get the permit and/or guarantee protection of the undocs.  (Yet they had no problem when NRML pulled permits)

    There was a lot of inherent racism there.

    •  You said the issue was violence (0+ / 0-)

      Not permits.

      If that's the standard then ever unpermitted march has a lot of inherent racism, including the unpermitted march the next year that was almost exclusively people of color.

      So all those stayed home, told by the white leadership that they wanted to "smash" the system and there would be violence.
      Who was this white "leadership". Because it sounds like people who weren't in charge of anything were scaring people off.

      If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?

      •  The issue was more than one. (0+ / 0-)

        Racism, violence...both.

        But it certainly wasn't the poor kids from the hood fucking up their own neighborhood.  It was the yuppies, white kids trashing it.

        •  There was no violence at the port march (0+ / 0-)

          And the idea that youth from Oakland never break windows is absurd. The whole white outsider narrative is just not reality, it's the media narrative not reality.

          If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?
