Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., unleashed a tweetstorm on Wednesday in which she warned that white supremacy is "dormant" in many Americans and must be confronted in the subconscious.
The freshman congresswoman indicated that even if someone wasn't a white supremacist, he or she could still be infected by its biases.
"White supremacy is often subconscious. & Clearly, our nation has not been inoculated," she said. "[White Supremacy] is our nation’s original sin; the driving logic of slavery, of Native genocide, of Jim Crow, of segregation, of mass incarceration, of 'Send Her Back.' It never went away. It was just dormant," she said.
Ocasio-Cortez has frequently accused President Trump of racism, pointing, for example, to his reaction when some supporters at a recent rally chanted "send her back" in reference to Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.
