9. Not mentioned - the guy leading the song was PoC

 

All the speakers save Robert Reich were also PoC.

It was Oakland after all. And, of course, people who weren't there are claiming that it was all white people.

I was there. It was a very mixed crowd.

But then, some of these are the same people who would leap over corpses to berate LGBTers for quoting MLK.

So take the childish nonsense for what it is - people just looking for a fight and seeking to feel slighted in some way. LGTBers had to deal with this shit for years. "You can't have our Civil Rights movement!"

Which, yeah, way to miss the entire point of that whole thing.
