And she’s serious about calling WHITES racist.
Ocasio-Cortez is not an Inca. She’s not even a mestiza. She’s not only SPANISH but bears the same name as the man who was responsible for wiping the Inca’s off the face of the earth. Cortes.
Few people in the USA study the Spanish invasion of South America but, suffice to say slavery was five-star treatment compared to the conquistadores. They had one purpose and one purpose only. To ship gold and silver back to Spain.
Over centuries Potoí’s wealth was exported to Europe or to other Spanish colonies. When Bolivia achieved independence in 1825 its silver mines were nearly exhausted and Potosí’s population had decreased from 200,000 to 10,000. To make matters worse, the fall in silver prices hurt Potosí’s economy such that it could never completely recover. Today Potosí’s mythical wealth is evident only in the expression “un potosí” for someone unbelievably rich. Source: Cultural Survival.
At it’s peak, 56,000 men worked there and all either died from inhaling noxious gasses or were disabled. It is said that no child born near the mines lived past the age of two. 30,000 African slaves were shipped there and had the same fate as the indigenous miners.
Of course, history doesn’t matter to communists like Ocasio-Cortez. They just scream RACIST and they’re serious.
Of the 14 million slaves brought to the new world, only 500 thousand came to the continental US. The rest were shipped to areas controlled by Ocasio-Cortez’s relatives. The Antilles, Bahia, in present day Brazil, Ecuador and Peru. In fact, by 1865, all African slaves in the continental USA were born in the USA. This is why Lincoln could not deport them, as he suggested. Under the US constitution, they were Americans.
The USA had few if any slave riots, but riots were common in the areas where Ocasio-Cortez relatives controlled. Conditions in the Spanish territories were similar to those in NAZI concentration camps. Slaves and conscripted workers were worked to death, or shot if they refused to work.
But unlike the northern United States that were northern European Christian and didn’t employ slaves, the Spanish territories were shit holes that didn’t really progress economically until after the Spanish had left.
Ocasio-Cortez is screaming racism because she’s a communist.
Her relatives CHOSE the name Cortez which means they respected the mass extermination of the Inca’s. If she was interested in freedom, she’d change her name to Alexandria Reagan. Fat chance that’ll happen.
