    “So far, this is more a movement for dreamers than for middle-class Americans trying to make ends meet.”

    There’s a lot of valid points in the comments section of this article. This movement needs focus and goals, otherwise yeah…It’s one thing to protest but it’s another thing entirely to organize and have demands. Even the teabagging jerkoffs put people up to elect to push their bullshit agenda.

    I do not like the smug tone of some of the supporters saying that this thing is greater than x,y,z movement of the past. Bullshit. Get your shit together first.  

    And the presumption by (mostly) white folks that anything the do equals the precision and depth to which Tahir square was simply cause they say so is yelling
