Rareview: Race matters at Occupy Atlanta

When Kung Li learned that civil rights activist and Georgia Rep. John Lewis, a Democrat from Atlanta, was denied the chance to speak at an Occupy Atlanta general assembly meeting last month, the former director of the Southern Center for Human Rights decided to respond. In her open letter to Occupy Atlanta, which was later published as an essay on Colorlines.com, Li explains why you can’t talk about the economy without talking about race.

In cities around the country, the Occupy movement is continuing.

    I think making fun of somone whos unemployed when the population outnumbers the number of jobs available is rediculous. I really think your retarded and you don't see the big picture here.

    so what does this have to do with Corporate greed?? Nothing! Last time i checked, just about anyone or race is owned or a slave to a company or their own business - it's called employment!! - except for the Occupy losers – wouldnt know anything about that would you?? .. cant wait for Atlanta police to toss your butts out just like other cities recently..
