It seems like the “Occupy Wall Street” folks have taken on all of the negative characteristics that were falsely attributed to the TEA party folks. Heck, they even lack racial diversity. Heck, they seem so embarrassed by it that they’ve declared “LGBT” to be a color :
Even the “unofficial” organizers of the protest events admit this is — or at least appears to be — problematic.
“That’s an interesting question, and it comes up often,” OccupyWallSt.org’s Patrick Bruner said in an email to TheDC. “Unfortunately, we have a very high turnover rate, and nobody as of yet has come up with official diversity related statistics for us. From observation, I can tell you that we’re not all white, and that we also have a huge LGBT [Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender] population.”
