Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is showing that she’s little more than an average pandering politician, despite her youth, luscious latina physique and meager intellect. Now people of color are pissed at her for her ‘shuck and jive’ routine at the National Action Network convention on Friday.
Ocasio-Cortez speaks in an accent that she never uses while telling a room of predominately black people that there is nothing wrong with them folding clothes, cooking, and driving other people around on a bus for a living. pic.twitter.com/FIbIAPokt0

“This is what organizing looks like,” Ocasio-Cortez said in a condescending hood accent to minority attendees. “This is what building power looks like. This is what changing the country looks like. It’s when we choose to show up and occupy the room and talk about the things that matter most, talking about our future.”
“I’m proud to be a bartender,” she added. “Ain’t nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy. There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat. There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work.”
Black Twitter took this phony to task on many fronts for her obscene stunt:
She trying too hard. The accent is so obvious😂
"Ain't nun wrong with dat"
Every African-American does not talk in this way. I guess you're trying to "win the black vote."

This embarrassment of a woman @AOC really got up there and did that raggedy accent in front of all those black people.
PSA: Not all black people are improper. Not all black people fold clothes and drive buses.

So pathetic but typical. Like Kamala’s claim of smoking a joint while listening to Tupac. Please. Many Dems have a low opinion of blacks & think they have to gravitate towards old stereotypes to ingratiate themselves with blacks. Pandering is the most insidious form of racism.

Ocasio-Cortez’s cringe-inducing display was quite similar to what Clinton did during her first failed run for President in 2008. This was one of Hilldog’s many faux pas on the campaign trail that caused Democratic voters to select Islamic shadow dictator Barack Hussein Obama over her:
Conservatives pilloried Ocasio-Cortez for her remarks as well:
In case you’re wondering, this is what blackface sounds like. https://t.co/oQVynsDxpc

Despite her support for extreme socialism, Ocasio-Cortez represents more of the same Washington D.C. class that is out of touch with the average person. She would have been better off shaking her sweet ass for a living, at least there she could have brought some level of joy to society while giving lap dances instead of the comedic agony she provides as a Congresswoman.
