On ne revendiquera rien, on ne demandera rien. On prendra, on occupera. (We will beg for nothing. We will ask for nothing. We will take, we will occupy.)
The national occupy movement comes to Fredericksburg today— Walkupy marchers on their way from DC to Atlanta, GA will stop in Fredericksburg for a potluck (6pm, Framar) and a general assembly (7:30pm, Ball Circle). Everyone is heartily encouraged to attend. For more on the march: http://twitter.com/#!/walkupy

Wealth Gaps Rise to Record Highs Between Whites, Blacks, Hispanics
The median wealth of white households is 20 times that of black households and 18 times that of Hispanic households, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of newly available government data from 2009.
These lopsided wealth ratios are the largest since the government began publishing such data a quarter century ago and roughly twice the size of the ratios that had prevailed between these three groups for the two decades prior to the Great Recession that ended in 2009.
From 2005 to 2009, inflation-adjusted median wealth fell by 66% among Hispanic households and 53% among black households, compared with just 16% among white households.
