Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Who Once Claimed Jewish Ancestry, Now Says She’s ‘Black’

Democrat socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) has claimed that “Latinos are black” in response to questions about racism and the ongoing protests in the United States following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

The far-left socialist then called for “conversations around ‘colorism'” during an interview with Telemundo.

“What do you think the Latinx community should do to stop racism among them and among other races?” AOC was asked.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, who once claimed to be descended from Sephardic Jews, replied:

“A lot of times I’ll hear people say, ‘OK, this is about Black Lives Matter, what about Latinos?’ and I always say, Latinos are black!”

“We are Afro-Latina, and we run an entire racial spectrum.”

She continued:

“We have to have conversations around ‘colorism,’ and we have to have conversations about the African and indigenous roots from which we come and how that’s reflected in systems of power, wealth inequality, and frankly, our political system.”

AOC’s comments attracted attention on social media after she seemed to say she and all Latinos are black.

This is far from the first time Ocasio-Cortez has been confused about race.

Last year, in an MSNBC interview, AOC proclaimed she wasn’t black. “My identity is the descendant of many different identities. I am the descendant of African slaves. I am the descendant of indigenous people. I am the descendant of Spanish colonizers… I am a descendant of all sorts of folks. That doesn’t mean I’m black, that doesn’t mean I’m native, but I can tell the story of my ancestors.

Also last year, she called for all Latin people to be exempt from immigration laws because they are supposedly “native” to the United States of America.

The Congresswoman made the comments during a speech vowing to defund U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

“We are standing on Native land, and Latino people are descendants of Native people,” she said.

“And we cannot be told and criminalized simply for our identity and our status.”

  1. No they came from my roots Mongolia according to the latest genetic researchers. But I know I came cause my gran told me that from my grand dad russia Hua china originally mongolia Kazakhstan. From her german back to 11 th century .But the Jewish question is interesting how they can interchange jewish to be religion and or race Course earlier the geneticists were saying we all come out of Afrika and some were are saying jews were black africans Well they better watch out for the fascist neo nazis in the corporate world then because antifa is a terrorist organisation now .

    • Yep, there are only four races. Latins are among the Caucasian group. But, who knows? Maybe she’s Sammy Davis Jr.’s illegitimate granddaughter.

      • Only the Latin American “aristocracy” are pure Caucasian. The typical Hispanic has varying degrees of indigenous Indian (Mongloid) blood. Actually we are finding out that American Indian ancestry is quite complex. Some DNA studies point to SE Asia. But what is looking to provide most of the gene pool is a population living isolated for some time in “Beringia” between Alaska and Siberia where they gained a rather unique genome. I suspect there are East Coast Indians who are actually European in ancestry. Anyway this woman is a turd.

  2. She claims to be this one day and something else the next, Let me help her learn what she is, You sorry ass excuse for a human you are a satanist plain and simple, you are a child of satan, which makes you worse than human excrement. Like many others I await the day we can round up you and your kind, like the Clintons, Bushes, Soros and others, drag you from your bunkers and any other place we find you, give you a trial find you guilty of treason and hang you with a damn fine hemp rope, Your time is coming as is your fathers (satan)

  3. She’s a Democrat, the chances of the sold-out sleazy Dem’ media calling her on her lies are zero. The hope for people that actually produce for this county is more media that isn’t from the whore media we have now. It has to go way down to the journalism schools where the indoctrination takes place now. Even public schools. Ivy League is the sickest of all. They are flaming communists. The choose to not count the dead associated with communism. We need to fight.

    • Yep. The whole educational system needs to be revamped. Places like the Smithsonian should be made to reveal the stuff that’s been hidden away for years that runs contrary to the globalist agenda and that would likely dispel the evolution myth, the skeletons of giants that have been unearthed, and who-knows-what else.

    • I saw this going down in the 1960s and bailed on elito-leftism. I never could have stomached a liberal arts school. So I took physics and did my liberal arts in the streets and in the bookstores of Greenwich Village.

  4. I was once told that most Hispanics are white people who speak Spanish. He was a black guy I worked with years ago.

  5. More racism in the country now than at any time since the 1950’s. And 99% of it comes from the left. I don’t think “progress” means what leftists think it does.

  6. Uhh, AOC, “Latinos” are called so because of their “Latin” (Italian) language origin, adopted in Spain, a country of Caucasians. Latinos are Caucasians.

    • Duh, they go all the way from pure European to pure Indian ancestry. Most Mexicans I know and see about me I am guessing are 80-90 percent European and 10-20 percent Indian (and maybe 0.o1 percent black .. they got rid of their “black” problem a century ago.) But the more white you are the generally higher up you are on the socio-economic totem pole here.

  7. Wait, wait, wait, WAIT!!!! Y’all said George Zimmerman was WHITE Latino, so now Y’all are Black because it works for YOU????

    • Latinos not too crazy about blacks, ha, ha. (have committed a form of genocide against them.) And they took all the construction work away from both blacks and whites, ha, ha.

  8. When you’re a democRAT you can be whatever you want to be whenever you want to be. Hell, they’ve even passed laws saying that if you are a man but feel feminine one day and want to use the ladies’ room go right ahead. It’s all in how you “feel” that day. so, if AOC feels like she’s Jewish, she can be. I’m just surprised she hasn’t said that she’s a black, Jewish, Indian, lesbian, transgender, yet.

  9. Colorism has to be the word of the day, so inclusive. Is not “white” a color? Does not all skin have color? I guess it is supposed to signify any group who is discriminated against.

  10. Ever notice that the govt will ask you if you are White, Non Hispanic or White Hispanic? Guess the govt knows the difference….AOC needs to ask the govt what race the Hispanics are?

  11. What a fucking joke. Black? Many latinos are racist and hate blacks. Mexico got rid of its “negro” problem ages ago. They put blacks in the front lines of any troops going into battle. And they had a regular hysterical campaign against the Chinese and conducted a regular “porgom” in Sonora (see the movie “Sonora”). And not the least of Latino racism, they were selling Yaqui Indians in slave markets in Jalisco state as late as the 1860s Yeah Crazio Ocasio do tell us of you “blackness” you worthless tool of the sociopathic oligarchs.

  12. What ever the flavor of the month AOC just waits for the truck to come by…You don’t even have to wait for the bell and she’s their.FIRST ON TIME,FIRST IN LINE,FIRST IN THE HEARTS OF ALL THE LOONIES…
