Million Hoodie March for Trayvon Martin
Throw on your hoodies and come gather in Union Square to show your support for justice for Trayvon Martin, the Florida 17-year-old whose killer hasn't been charged! A black person in a hoodie isn’t automatically “suspicious”. Let’s put an end to racial profiling! March 21st is the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

I won't belabor the number of things that are wrong with this except to mention that it demonstrates that the organization has devolved into something typical. This demonstrates an inability to remain focused on the actual problems on Wall Street that can be identified as policy recommendations backed up by popular support.
Turning the hoodie corner = jumping the shark. Occupy has officially wobbled quietly into the dark night of surrender, perhaps realizing that their supporters have short attention spans. Racist! Squirrel!
