'Occupy Wall Street' a nearly all white endeavor

They call themselves the "99 percenters" - alluding to the supposed one percent of rich people who control the country.

But as Michelle Malkin points out to the Daily Caller, "When Occupy Wall Street activists call themselves the '99 percent,' it turns out they mean 99 percent non-diverse (by their own politically correct measurements)." Malkin notes that:

One thing you won't hear the MSM harp on the way they harped about the Tea Party: The overwhelmingly pale face of the "99 percent" movement. Just like their ideological elders in the liberal media, they are a lot more skilled at carping over lack of proportional representation among conservative institutions and the GOP than they are at demonstrating it in their own ranks.

From the DC article:

Though a few representatives of minority groups have appeared among the "Occupy Wall Street" protesters in New York City, photos and videos of the left-wing mini-throngs indicate they suffer from a serious lack of diversity. And the protesters themselves told The Daily Caller on Tuesday that they are conscious of the issue, if not the inconsistency it demonstrates. A 40-photo Washington Post slideshow showing hundreds of angry protesters in New York and other cities includes no more than 15 clearly identifiable minority protesters, and just six African-Americans. The rest of the protesters shown are white, and most are male. In 26 photos from San Francisco and Chicago gatherings posted on OccupyTogether.org, only one person from a minority group is clearly visible, and it's unclear whether he is a protester or a bystander. Minority groups are similarly underrepresented in photos and videos posted on OccupyWallSt.org, the self-described "unofficial de facto online resource for the ongoing protests happening on Wall Street."

Buehler? Buehler? Anyone?
