Subject:   Re: [september17discuss] Re: way cool infographic on the demographics of OWS,

The thing that I'm miffed about is the title of the graph should really be "who visited in mid-october and decided to take our survey, which is not a statistically sound measure of OWS's population".  

It just makes it seem a lot more valid and real than it actually is.  Especially because it's so pretty looking.

what is actually helpful are the comments from the public abt the survey from the Facebook page:

specifically this comment:

"I am black, I am not a democrat, I am a proud moveon supporter, and an OWS supporter. But all of that is 100% irrelevant! We need to stop arguing about irrelevant things. We're like a bunch of animals trapped in a cage, fighting each other for survival. Let's climb out of this cage and eat the guy with the keys!!"
