Would someone pretty please with sugar on top tell whoever is writing tweets and or speeches for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that not EVERYTHING is about race? Seriously. We realize Democrats have like a dozen talking points they push over and over again regardless of the situation but c’mon.
68% of all NYC public school students are Black or Latino.
To only have 7 Black students accepted into Stuyvesant (a *public* high school) tells us that this is a system failure.
Education inequity is a major factor in the racial wealth gap. This is what injustice looks like. https://t.co/89NKvXk4vg

System failure. Didn’t she just say the majority of kids in public schools are Black and Latino? So if it’s a system failure … wait, what?
We should know better than to try and make sense of her tweets, ignore us.
It is called earning it. Stuyvesant has 74 percent Asian students. Do you want more white kids in the school? Your idea is if you cannot earn it you force the school to take unqualified kids.
This is not what injustice looks like. It is what merit looks like.

We’re thinking AOC didn’t do her homework on Stuyvesant …
Lol! The school is only 22% white!
Congratulations, you've played yourself. https://t.co/2EKoRXX5zR

Another day, another AOC fail.
Hey, we suppose if this somehow works for her she should go with it and hey, who are we to complain? We get to write about her being a doorknob … again. Whoohoo for job security! Wait, AOC is accidentally creating jobs, who knew?
Equality of opportunity doesn't mean equality of outcome…

But that’s not FAAAAAIR.
So, as someone who worked in education, let me ask…
How do we ensure parental involvement, role modeling, etc. in our public schools? The number one issue I see is a lack of that, which is unfortunately heavily tired to lower incomes as well. To me, this is a key issue.

Good point. If AOC really wants to tackle the issues in public education going the lazy ‘racist system’ route isn’t the answer. It’s a far bigger issue.
Congratulations to those 7 students for having the test scores necessary to get into Stuy. Not an easy feat. ???????

Desirability, merit, logistics, neighborhood demographics just might play a role too. So unless a bunch of white liberals are cheating, again, you might have jumped the gun on this one.

Nice too see the left going after Asian privilege now!

You know what? Nope.
