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.
