The 1% Of #OccupyWallStreet
For all the bad (and false) publicity the Tea Party got for being a bunch of racists, it turns out the #Occupy movement is more white and less black than the Tea Party ever was.
A new internal poll
being proudly circulated within #Occupy camps indicates only 1.6% of #Occupy protesters are black:

, a 2010 Gallup poll
shows the Tea Party had 6% black representation and 79% white (first column):
The second column is that of the general population. Both protest movements have a higher percent of whites and a lower percent of blacks, but the Tea Party more closely reflects mainstream America than the #OccupyWallStreet crowds do.
One amusing side note about the #OccupyWallStreet poll - the poll was conducted online by occupywallst.org
and yet, they could only get 93% support for the protests? I bet TeaParty.org
could get more support for the Tea Party if they had a poll... Just saying...
