Saturday, October 15 at 1:30: What Does Racism Have to Do with It? Come Find Out!
At Seminary of the Street, we are aware that some white occupiers have raised questions about what racism has to do with protesting Wall Street, what a critique of the police has to do with that, and why they might be asked to leave a meeting of a subcommittee on issues faced by people of color. We are coordinating some antiracism trainers to be available for those conversations on Saturday, October 15, at 1:30. We’ll have materials available that explain the role that racism has played and continues to play in the economic exploitation of the 99%. All are welcome to come with a spirit of respect and inquiry. For now, here are a couple of good background articles:
