New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a fan of 0laying the race card but her latest play backfired in her face.
The 29-year-old was irate that an elite New York City School had only accepted 7 new black students and she said it was a sign of racism and injustice.
But Stuyvesant, which is a public school, has admissions based on merit and it consists of mainly Asian students.
“68% of all NYC public school students are Black or Latino.
“To only have 7 Black students accepted into Stuyvesant (a *public* high school) tells us that this is a system failure.
“Education inequity is a major factor in the racial wealth gap. This is what injustice looks like,” she said.
But she is again incorrect. And her assertion that schools have to admit a quota of students due to their skin color regardless of merit is what injustice is.
