while i agree with you on principle...the fact of reality remains...people get screwed for being poor, for being colored, being women, etc etc...

the all poor people must come together argument only works for fighting classism....poor whites ARE/HAVE NOT been willing to either help, or even passively approve people of color movements against racism...

let people, people of color, DO WHAT THE HAVE TO DO. BUT MEANWHILE, keep working on building class based alliances too...

also, there are good number of issues between those two communities that are specific to that relationship...THOSE two communities have to deal with...

the two (people of color alliances, poor people alliances) ARE NOT the same, BUT are not exclusionary of each other either...
