Ocasio-Cortez just doesn’t stop, she just keeps on chugging with her vapid stupidity. Here’s her latest – the effects of coronavirus are racist because of course they are:
COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities.
Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions.
Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations.

Er. Yeah, about that. I mean, I will agree with her for about 5% of that statement. There is always a disproportional negative effect on minorities around this stuff, and maybe some of it is due to racism. Most of it is simply due to minorities being overly represented in poverty-stricken communities. But “reparations”? Huh?!
AND GET THIS – just a few weeks ago she was saying that it was racist to NOT GO OUT and help spread coronavirus to minority restaurants:

Here’s what she said:
“Honestly, it sounds almost so silly to say, but there’s a lot of restaurants that are feeling the pain of racism, where people are literally not patroning Chinese restaurants, they’re not patroning Asian restaurants because of just straight-up racism around the coronavirus,” she said during an Instagram Live session on Tuesday.
Gosh, it’s almost. As if. It doesn’t matter. What happens. She’s gonna. Blame it. On Racism. Is it just me? Am I losing my mind? I think so.
