I understand the need for occupy wall street (even if it is the brainchild of fucking adbusters). Yet every time I read an article or see another white person holding a piece of paper bemoaning the cost of education or the cost of living and breathing in America I can’t help but think now you see how the other 30+% of us live. Sorry no one prepared your privileged ass for reality. Unemployment crisis? What about the fucking life crisis that’s been happening in your own backyard?” —
Omfg, YES! There’s this new blog that’s popped up and it’s filled with pictures of mostly white people holding up signs describe their personal and financial sufferings due to the economic and “unemployment crisis”. When I first came across the site, my immediate first thought was that unemployment is suddenly this gigantic problem because white college grads can’t get the jobs they expected to get and other more qualified people now know what it’s like to live in the face if unemployment & poverty - something people of colour have been dealing in their communities for decades.
