“Well, why are people of color missing? There are a couple of easy answers to that. For one, it’s socioeconomic advantages that some people have and they don’t. For the most part, people of color have to work and can’t take off five days of work and go protest. There’s also not strong enough outreach from the Occupy Wall Street movement to these areas — let’s say Brownsville, or the Bronx, or Queens — where these people of color are impacted directly by the issues that they are fighting for here.” — Brittany Robinson, Occupy Wall Street
