AOC Wants Coronavirus Reparations for “Black + Brown Communities”

(New York Post) Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has called for coronavirus reparations for minorities, claiming higher numbers of COVID-19 fatalities in low-income communities stems from underlying inequality.

“COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities,” Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) tweeted to her 6 million followers on Friday morning.

“Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations,” she wrote.
