Where Was the Color in Seattle?

Where Was the Color in Seattle?: “I think even Bay Area activists of color who understood [how the WTO affected the daily lives of U.S. communities of color] didn’t want to go to a protest dominated by 50,000 white hippies.” Elizabeth (Betita) Martinez looks at why the Battle of Seattle was waged primarily by white activists. This essay is from an upcoming issue of ColorLines, “the nation’s leading magazine on race, culture, and organizing.” I received the message from their mailing list, which unfortunately doesn’t have publicly accessible archives. The link is to a copy I’ve posted elsewhere.
