Those Poor, Little Rich (White) Occupiers

As you might be aware, Boston Police arrested nearly 150 occupiers earlier this week when they disobeyed an order to leave the Rose Kennedy Greenway.

Well, as it turns out, many of those arrested reside at some rather tony addresses in the People’s Republic of Cambridge. It also seems these so-called 99 percenters are a rather homogeneous bunch. Howie Carr of The Boston Herald has the skinny:

I have been studying the Boston police reports, and most of these hippies, er revolutionaries, are from the ‘burbs. Not the city, but the bosky dells, especially Cambridge.

Ever hear of Dunster Street, comrade? It’s right there in the middle of Harvard Square. The cops early Monday lugged a resident of 101 Dunster St., age 23, and he was “white non-Hispanic.” But then, aren’t all of the 99 percent?

But even if it is true that 99% of the 99% share a pinkish hue, we should never judge a person’s politics by their color of their skin unless, of course, you are member of the Tea Party. Speaking of which, when will Dana Milbank of The Washington Post will get around to writing that column about diversifying the occupiers?
