Occupy Wall St. South

Charlotte is known as the Wall St. of the South and for good reason. Bank of America makes it’s home there. Since 2008 Wells Fargo has based it’s East Coast operations there as well.

I consider Charlotte to be a double edged sword. On one hand it is a fine representation of the New South. The city is very diverse and it is a cultural beacon for the state of NC. Unfortunately it is also a veritable lion’s den as it is home to two of the most evil banking institutions in America today.

It’s no secret that there is bad blood between Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and myself. In the article Politics of Prison I refer to Wells Fargo as Wells Fucko. I even Bastardized their logo.

Over the course of this blog I have continually gone after Bank of America who I affectionately refer to as Skank of America.

Fortunately there are others in Charlotte who feel the same way I do. I recently came into contact with Occupy Charlotte and I was pleased to see that they are still alive and well.

Back in January they were summarily evicted from Uptown Charlotte. Despite this setback they have regrouped and have a big plans for the month of May.

Posted below is text taken directly from one of their pamphlets.
