Communist Rep Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) on Monday asserted that Latinos are actually black when asked what the “LatinX” community should do to ‘stop racism.’
“I always say Latinos are black!” AOC said laughing. “We run an entire racial spectrum so we have to have conversations around ‘colorism,’ and we have to have conversations around the African and indigenous roots from which we come and how that’s reflected in systems of power wealth inequality and frankly our political system.”
More Marxist drivel from AOC.

The responses were fire.
NO @AOC! We Hispanics are NOT Black! Don’t you dare use our brown skin to co-opt the Black experience in America as far as their contributions to our nation’s development & culture. Just because we aren’t white doesn’t mean we are to cling to Black America’s *unique* history! https://t.co/9go7EknG38
