Apparently, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez thinks Latinos are black.
Don’t make that face, we didn’t say it.
.@AOC: “Latinos are black … 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.” pic.twitter.com/ki1lDDNhKS

Yeah, pretty sure that’s not accurate, AOC. Just sayin’.
You can tell she had a few talking points she needed to get out there (ones someone else likely wrote for her) but then she went off-script … yikes.
LATINOS ENSLAVED AFRICANS.
In fact the slaves sent to South America were treated so badly they had to be constantly replaced because so many died there. She is such an idiot. It's astounding someone so ignorant of history and government is a member of a federal legislating body.

But she has a degree in Economics and stuff, man.
That's news to George Zimmerman.

If Marco Rubio said Latinos are black the Left would lose what’s left of their minds.
How about southern Italians and Spanish then?

Unless you’re Latino then you are?
You know what, we don’t know.
