I think this video qualifies for the hilarious category.

Best part of the entire vid is the black guy wearing the Che Guevara T-shirt L.O.L.

Are these people too good and special to read a ******* book?

They certainlly aren't racist:
Occupy Wall Street’s General Assembly operates under a revolutionary “progressive stack.” A normal “stack” means those who wish to speak get in line. A progressive stack encourages women and traditionally marginalized groups speak before men, especially white men. This is something that has been in place since the beginning, it is necessary, and it is important.

“Step up, step back” was a common phrase of the first week, encouraging white men to acknowledge the privilege they have lived in their entire lives and to step back from continually speaking. This progressive stack has been inspiring and mind-boggling in its effectiveness.

OMFG THAT'S AWESOME!!! And timely!

Today on my drive home I saw a white man with gray hair standing with a huge sign.

It read:

"Attitude of the top 1%: Let them eat cake"

I rolled down my window and yelled: "get a ******* job and maybe you can afford some"

I like whats being said in much of (by no means all of) that video.

Not at all random pictures:






Top 1% of Americans own 42% of financial wealth as of 2007. Bottom 80 percent of Americans own 7 percent of financial wealth.*

*I heard somewhere that this went up to 50% from 42%.
