Occupy The Hood - Chicago SunTimes Mary Mitchell, OC lacked diversity - ???
Occupy The Hood is an active component of Occupy Chicago.
The Chicago Sun-Times reporter Mary Mitchell happened to observe one event at City Hall involving teachers and community organizers. Mitchell concluded from her brief exchanges that Occupy Chicago "lacked diversity".
"But what really struck me was the small number of black and brown people among the marchers. I had to hunt for Brian Johnson, a 40-year-old African-American male who was surrounded by a group of college-age white males wearing bandanas"
It's hard to understand what it is that Mitchell is trying to imply. Either she is acknowledging a problem with inequity in America that is larger than the scope of Occupy - Or - she expects Occupy to expropriate racial discontent and add to what she imagines the Occupy popular mandate to be.
