Some of the founding members of the occupy movement are launching a new political party -- The AFTER Party.
Carl Gibson is among them.
And so is Radio Rahim, another After Party founding member and, yes, the real-life persona behind the character in Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing. He says the following:
"There is a little bit of Radio Rahim in everybody... we all love our music and we have outrage about different things."
How will The After Party be different than other 3rd-party alternatives?
Why start a political party at all?
And should Mookie have thrown that garbage can through the window of Sal's Pizzeria?
All of those questions asked and answered this week on Acronym TV. What do you stand for?
