AOC’s Latest Claim: Latinos are Black

AOC’s Latest Claim: Latinos are Black

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has earned a reputation for saying what’s going through her head without taking a moment to think about the words. In light of the racism vibrating through the country against Blacks, she has decided to announce that Latinos, too, are black.

Well, that goes against virtually everything we’ve ever learned. Even the census and other demographic surveys have you check off whether you’re Caucasian, Black, or Latino. If Latinos are black, why have a separate checkbox for them?

Of course, some Latinos can be Black. It’s just like some white people can be Black. It all depends on the individual and their roots. But, blanket statements like she made are dangerous – and it makes her sound ignorant.

According to AOC in an interview on Telemundo, “I always say Latinos are black. We are Afro-Latina and we run an entire racial spectrum.”

AOC loves to make sure that the attention is turned on her and the Latino community. To say that she, and the rest of the Latino community, is “Afro-Latina” is just absurd. She also wants people to start having discussions on the “African and indigenous roots” that people come from and how it’s reflected in the systems of power and wealth inequality.

These conversations are going on right now within the Black community because of Black Lives Matter and the death of George Floyd. And AOC is feeling a bit left out since she’s not a part of that community.

AOC is also up for re-election this year, and her competition is a bit fierce. As such, she’s trying to turn the tables to say that Latinos are facing similar struggles to those within the black community.

How in the world does she think that this is going to work in her favor? It’s likely to spawn the same kind of anger as when someone says, “Black lives matter” and the other person responds with, “No, all lives matter.”

In an interview where the Democratic Representative talked about how the pandemic is affecting the Latino community. She spouted the statistic of how African Americans have the highest mortality rates due to COVID. However, she turned it back to her Latino community quickly to say that they’re the ones dealing with the economic brunt with the mass layoffs. She feels that the Latino community is experiencing the highest job displacement and highest unemployment rates.

While all minority communities are seeing an impact, so are others. The unemployment rate is high all around the country, especially within the service industries. Restaurants and bars and theme parks aren’t just serviced by minorities. With so many locations forced to close, countless people have had to suffer through job displacement.

Further, AOC seems to be distancing the Latino community away from African Americans when citing the statistic about the high mortality rates. Where is she in claiming that the “Afro-Latina” community is suffering? That’s not where she wants to make her emphasis.

She’s also quick to try to force the high unemployment rate found within the Latino community to the same level as the high mortality rate of the African American communities. Unemployment and death are on two entirely different levels – and if she’s after voters to keep her in her position for another four years, she may want to pause and listen to the words coming out of her mouth for a moment.

Although AOC was able to win the primary to beat out Michelle Caruso-Cabrera, a former journalist, she still has to face the Republican candidate later on in the year – and that’s where AOC needs to be concerned.

AOC has not replied to requests to clarify her comment about how Latinos are part of the black community. She probably won’t, either, because now that she’s had a moment to hear those words for the craziness that they are, she won’t want to touch the topic any further. After all, it is an election year.

  1. It all depends on ancestry. Some are American Indian/Spanish. Last I knew, Spanish were Caucasian and American Indians are not black. How did this Rhodes Scholar win the primary?

    1. First of all AOC was not a Rhodes Scholar . She attended Boston Collage as a business and accounting major . I believe she got he degree based on time under the profs desk . And secondly this broad makes a lot of claims , most of which are based on he wild opinion of how it should be and what she wants . Third , she is a bats–t crazy socialist/Communist that shouldn’t even be in Congress she is that dumb . There really needs to be a minimum age higher that what we have now . Also a maximum age and term limits . Pelosi has been there since 1984 or so and has never accomplished anything except vet an ineligible candidate and get him elected not once but twice .

    1. She not only sounds ignorant, she is ignorant. Boston College should refund her tuition and cancel her degree. And what is the purpose of her statement, anyway? Hopefully, the very qualified conservative running against her wins.

  2. Well now, here is your latest RANT … and rest assured it will be added to your score of LEGENDARY recitals ! I recommend you be careful with your statements from this point on — for now a formidable opponent has been named to face you in the upcoming election. So anywayyyy, good luck Girl … and if it doesn’t work out that you keep your seat, please consider following your next career path …. in the Adult Video Industry. Three plus years of looking at your slim, slight frame and that MONSTER RACK has whet the appetite of the American Male (and the girls too !) We all want to be there the day you start using your REAL ASSETS to entertain us !

  3. “O’CRAZIO CORTEZ”, ONCE AGAIN SURFACES AS THE CRAZIEST, & MOST UN-QUALIFIED, TO HER CONGRESSIONAL POST! MUCH TO THE AMUSEMENT OF “MOST” AMERICANS, THIS “NEW YORKER”, IN HER MIND IS NOTHING MORE THAN A REAL INTELLECTUAL “PORKER”, & NOT TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY!

    WHAT IS BEHIND THE UNUSUAL, & BIZARRE MIND THAT WOULD ELECT SUCH AN IDIOT? IS THIS MERELY A VERY BAD JOKE FROM THE NEW YORK SIMPLE MINDED ELECTORATE? CAN WE VERY CLOSELY INSPECT THE MINDS OF THOSE “EDUCATORS”, THAT ACTUALLY PASSED THIS NIMBLE MINDED LATINO “CLOWN”, THRU THE EDUCATION PROCESS? { C’MON…..FOLKS…..THIS ISN’T FUNNY ANYMORE…..IT’S PATHETIC!}

  4. A lot of RACISTS think that skin tone is the only thing that decides race and based on that think that there are only two races black and white in the entire world.

    In fact that one spouted his beliefs that people are not black unless their skin tone was DARK ENOUGH for him to believe they had no other races in their ancestry.

    Basically these RACISTS are ignoring those with multiple races in their ancestral background by declaring multiple races as either black or white based on their skin tone.

    We saw the same when the media spouted that the Hispanic male forced to defend himself a few years back was a “WHITE MALE” so they could carry on with their false claims the incident was about racism instead of the fact the ADULT aged male trying to beat him to death.

    The entire attack was heard on the 911 call where the Hispanic male begged the one to stop beating him before he finally stopped him. The media of course falsely claimed the one shot was the one being beaten despite irrefutable forensic evidence to the contrary. Like the fact the Hispanic Male had been so badly beaten the police were not even sure he would live. The racists of course threw a fit because he was not summarily executed without trial instead of being sent to the hospital simply because of the race of his attacker as if people of any particular race are someone IMMUNE from having to respect the rights of others or that other peoples rights are suddenly revoked or no longer exist just because of who wants to deny them those rights.

    Equal means EQUAL not a reversing of which races are discriminated against.

  5. I’m not white, I’m just pigmentally challenged! All kidding aside what TerryL says is valid. Race is determined by genetics. We have different cultures and lifestyles. Many politicians play on that. They make themselves rich by stirring up hate. If you clear your thoughts and look at the facts of the chain events you will see the truth. We Can Live In Harmony Together! Sure, there will always be crime and there will always be police that go too far. There’s no way to stop that. But do we really want to destroy our homes and way of life because some don’t get along well with others? We are all Americans and as such we all share in its history. The good, the bad and the ugly. Let’s not let our hatred rule our outcome!

  6. This woman is so far out in left field that it is not funny. I am mixed and my kids are a Heinz 57 of mixture. Cherokee, Miami, Plains Indian, Polynesian Black, et al. The woman just can’t see straight,

  7. I find it ironic that in different countries in her own State of NY, the police departments of 2 neighboring countries classify Hispanics under 2 different races/ethnicity groups in their official arrest records. One county classified them as “hispanic” and the neighboring county classifies them as “white”. Neither of the counties classify them as “black”, except those that have a Spanish name but are probably from the Carribean and are truly black (remember that the slave trade was also active in the islands of the Carribean, including Spanish held islands such as Puerto Rico, Cuba, Dominican Republic, etc, thus the Spanish names and the mixed heritage).

  8. With any luck the voters in her district will awaken to what they have done to themselves . It helps that her district has be eliminated and is to be folded in with another voting district . As for those now in her district , You asked for it , You got it ! AOC has embarrassed you and cost you jobs . She hasn’t accomplished one thing in Congress beyond making people of the Bronx look dumb and foolish . AOC is an embarrassment to Hispanics everywhere .
