A comment to the person with the rich don't care about you sign
07 May 2007
I need to quickly address the person with the "rich don't care about you" sign pictured above. If I had seen the sign yesterday I would have addressed you in person. It seems to me that messaging is highly problematic, elitist and really patronizing.

Maybe you are not from Boston, I don't know you might even have good intentions, but you were marching through Roxbury which is a mostly poor/low income and working class, mostly African American and Latino community. And you think folks living there don't know the rich don't care about them? You think working folks are stupid? Because thats what your sign basically said, it might as well have said "You are all stupid! You don't see what is super obvious, you need some white kid in a freaking mask to tell you how the world works, you idiots". Seriously, people know the rich don't care about them, most likely alot better than you do, because they live that experience every day. The fact that you feel you need to be the one to walk in there and tell folks what they already know is offensive and also a sad comment on our so-called movements.

So maybe next time please leave that kind of patronizing elitist messaging at home and try to give folks some credit, you might even learn something by listening to the folks in that and other neighborhoods, they most likely understand class and race oppression better than you. Food or thought.
