Ocasio-Cortez Says Working Hard To Get Into A Good School Is Racist

In Democrats, Liberalism, U.S. by 50 State Report

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.
