Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped the entire American political system during an interview Tuesday morning; saying the country’s government is “bogged down” by “racism, American Apartheid, and the genocide of Native People.”
“You can have one great, amazing, incredible elected official who’s still in the system that’s completely bogged down in the legacies of racism, basically American Apartheid with Jim Crow, with the genocide of Native People,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
