How to Respond When a Racist Goes on TV


Tuesday night, after major television networks and cable networks canceled their regular programming to create time for the racist president to go on air and speak without interruption for almost 10 minutes, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went on MSNBC and showed what a good response to that kind of bullshit looks like.

“Right now, what we are seeing is death. Right now, what we are seeing is the violation of human rights,” Ocasio-Cortez told Rachel Maddow about the humanitarian crisis on the border, one, she noted, was created by the president. Ocasio-Cortez continued: “This is systematic, it’s wrong, and it’s anti-American.”

While she unfortunately did not call the racist a racist during her interview, Ocasio-Cortez has done so repeatedly in the past.
