 From The Black Commentator, which is getting tougher and  better all the time:

The A.N.S.W.E.R. coalition is serious about creating a genuinely
multi-racial movement against the pirates who control the U.S. government.
Of the 30 or so speakers that addressed hundreds of thousands of anti-war
protesters in Washington, January 18, at least 17 were African Americans.
Native-born whites were a distinct minority on the microphone, also sharing
the historic moment with an international cast of activists from Latin
America, Asia, the Pacific, the Middle East and Africa.

A.N.S.W.E.R. is the acronym for Act Now to Stop War and End Racism. Folks
with experience in coalition building understand that nothing, nothing is
more politically sensitive than compiling a speakers list for a tightly
scheduled event. It is the public face of the movement - or the movement
that is envisioned - an irreducible statement. A.N.S.W.E.R. stated plainly,
for all the world to see, that anti-racism is a core principle of the
movement they seek to build.
