So while the madness in Ferguson was going down last night
residents of Worcester carpetbagging privileged white kids from Clark marched down to City Hall to demand that our government…….do…….something, I guess. Not sure what exactly, but everyone else is protesting so Worcester had to throw a bootleg protest together too. We’ll figure out what the plan is later. Here’s some images of the most epic protest since Selma:
The only thing whiter than the Ferguson Police Department was the crowd of social warriors in front of City Hall last night.
Hey I have an idea, lets march through the poorest part of Worcester and keep the people who live there up all night. Sure they have to work tomorrow and we’ll probably just walk out of our 1:00 PM sociology classes in “protest,” but who gives a shit about them right? Oh yea, and cops are evil racists. Well, except when they phyiscally escort us through the heart of Main South at 1 in the morning. Then we like them.
And thank God the tens of thousands of dollars these kids spend on tuition DOESN’T go to the city of Worcester for taxes. Because they NEVER use city services like 1 AM police escorts to and from their dorm room. But these kids are fighting for something you and I know very little about, so they deserve this free ride. Because a bunch of white kids from New Jersey obviously know more about racism than you do. They even saw The Help when it was out in theaters.
Luckily on the Clark University Student Walkout Facebook page they’ve realized this irony and made it clear that they’re gonna hit up some new neighborhoods tonight:
“Take this fight where the lawns are better kept, where reality has gone undisturbed for too long. Dont allow yourself to go to bed tonight with a feeling of job well done.”
Oh joy, I’m gonna have hippies messing up my lawn, and I just raked it!!
Here was my favorite comment from the Facebook page:
Courtney should I like e-mail my professor or something…..???
Like, I wanna really like, stick it to to the man. Down with authority. But first, let me email my professor to make sure it’s OK that I skip his class. Actually, who am I kidding, my professor is probably organizing the walk out to begin with.
And OF COURSE they were led by my girl, the honorable professor Sonya Conner:
Because if that isn’t the face of someone who knows what it’s like to be victimized by racist white cops then I don’t know what is. And she definitely knows a lot about how racist Worcester police are. After all, she’s lived here for like, two years now and she teaches at Worcester State!! Some of you might be calling her a carpetbagger since she just moved here from Oklahonma, but you are wrong – she’s making a real difference!! She’s made it perfectly clear – either you’re for black people or you’re against them. If you believe in due process for a white police officer then you OBVIOUSLY hate black people.
She makes a good point though. “It’s not up to black people to do all the work.” White people can make a REAL difference right here in Worcester by holding a rally at City Hall while everyone who has to work tomorrow is sleeping.
Here’s a comment from the 100% accurate Rate My Professor page for Sonya Conner:
Dr Conner is a good person and passionate about what she teaches. However, she assigns a ton of work and never grades most of it til the very end of the semester. This is frustrating! If a teacher is going to assign work they should be required to grade it promptly, that way students can know how they are doing throughout the semester.
Hey kid, calm down. You’ll get your paper back when you get it. Dr. Conner obviously will get around to doing that, but right now she’s busy fixing racial problems in Worcester. What do you think is more important in the grand scheme of things?
Oh yea and remember Occupy Worcester? I remember when Occupy was all the rage. Then it got cold and someone Googled Joseph Kony, so everyone forgot all about it. Well, they’re back baby!!! And they’ll be in Lincoln Square today doing……something, I guess.
Yea, stick it to the man!! And what better way to do that than to skip your 1 PM class the day before Thanksgiving break. Because EVERYONE goes to class the day before Thanksgiving break. First we’ll go to Lincoln Square, hold signs, and further congest the clusterfuck that is the most aggravating intersection in the City of Worcester. That’ll show Darren Wilson!! Then we’ll probably get hungry, so we’ll go over to Boomers for some Rockin’ Moroccans!!! After that we’ll take some gigantic Clark dumps and march back over to City Hall for round two of changing the world!!
Finally I saw this quote from one of the Worcester warriors on Masslive.com: “this could have happened to my son.”
That’s the line I keep hearing. “This could’ve been my my son.” No. Just no. This could not have been Turtleboy Jr. Because Turtleboy Jr. knows that you’re not supposed to rob convenience stores, get in verbal interactions with police, and then get in a physical altercation that ultimately leads to his demise. But besides that this person is right. Innocent people who mind their own business are always getting killed by racist cops for absolutely no reason.
Anyway, I’m kind of excited to see what goes down here. I’m sure these geniuses are hoping that the police kick the shit out of them so they can be the next victim of police brutality. It’s gonna suck for them when the police do what they always do around here – protect them and keep law and order. Hard to protest that.

I’ll tell you who has the world all figured out – privileged white kids who go to Clark. Here I am all confused about why the world is the way it is when all I had to do was go down to Crystal Park and
