    FILE - In this Oct. 15, 2011 file photo, demonstrators crowd around the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial during a rally and march of thousands in Washington, as civic leaders, led by the Rev. Al Sharpton, rallied for easier access to jobs. The rally was separate from Occupy DC, but holds similar ideals. The outcry against the nation?s financial institutions that has swept the country in recent weeks has crossed many boundaries, including class, gender and age. But a stubborn hurdle in many cities has been a lack of racial inclusion, something noted by organizers and participants alike. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File)
