Back in the day, I attended a few meetings with people in Bring the Ruckus (the group started by Joel, not any of the many other Bring the Ruckus's). And one of the things I took away from those meetings was their metaphor of the table of The System, a table that rests on multiple legs, the most significant of which is racism. So BtR was going after that leg of the table, as a way, so they said, to bring the whole table down.
