A white progressive who organized Occupy Wall Street excluded white allies from a critical meeting with New Yorks Local 1199 union, which has since thrown its enormous resources behind the media-magnified protest.
The local, which has up to 350,000 members, is part of the Service Employees Union International (SEIU). It invited the one of the leading OWS organizers to a Sept. 30 meeting after the organizers sought its support.
The protester invited to the Sept. 30 meeting was Jesse Myerson, a white male who describes himself as an independent journalist and activist.
In an email to the other organizers, he asked for a second organizer to accompany him to the meeting, but he specifically barred white activists.
I am meeting the 1199 executive council tomorrow to try and convince them to come out for us. Its in midtown and I *need* someone to be with me, and that person needs not to be white, he wrote in a Sept. 29 evening email. This will mean the difference, I bet, said Myerson.

Not really, SEIU was in or out based on orders out of Washington not on the arguments this pinhead made to them.
How can it be legal for Union funds to be extended in this manner.
Financing anarchy is not a proper Union function.
Of course they have the Muslim pResident behind them and no way will the Justice Department hold any Union leaders responsible.
And, this is a surprise to whom . . . ???
Yeah, but being a "white progressive" he, like almost all of the other "progressives," can not help his thought processes. He is oblivious to the blatant racist nature of his documented statement!
If DC had not instructed it, there would be no meeting in the first place. The link is probably a done deal one way or another, the "meeting" is just for show. But he is a "white progressive" and so smart he "knows" that, of course, it is all about him and race posturing.
The stupid is just oozing out of this guy.
