Maybe they could use Rachel Dolezal as their token White woman since she identifies as Black.

They can and do receive special treatment. They are the single largest recipient of any affirmative action or government set-aside programs.

Because they belong to the Justice Democrats, which all 4 belongs to, and is a 7 people strong group.
There where 68 other Justice Democrats that ran in 2018, both white and all sorts of colors, but just 7 won.
Next year there will be even more running.



The Group trump singled out is:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
Ilhan Omar
Rashida Tlaib
Ayanna Pressley


The three other are 2 males and 1 female.
Pramila Jayapal
Ro Khanna
Raúl Grijalva


Why the 3 other is not part of the "The Squad" I am not sure..

but do you see anything strange when listing them?

They are all immigrants or children of immigrants, more colored then white... with funny foreign names..


So, he singled out a small Progressive group of colored people, that fights for Healthcare for all, Money out of politics, Free education at University and trade school levels, racial and gender equality...


And its just COMPLETLY innocent.

Those 3 are converts from the Dem party. They aren't activists to start with and will work quietly to make their changes.

It's almost like some people get their news from such a biased source that they don't know or even care about all of what the four Congresswomen called out by President Trump aid or think. Folks hear the soundbites and then get the views part of the news from a certain source and never realize or care that they got about 2% of the actual story

I also would like to just underscore the fact that despite the occupant of the White House attempts to marginalize us and to silence us, please know that we are more than four people. We ran on a mandate to advocate for and to represent those ignored, left out and left behind. Our squad is big. Our squad includes any person committed to building a more equitable and just world. And that is the work that we want to get back to. And given the size of this squad and this great nation, we cannot, we will not, be silenced.

But I also know that we’re focused on making it better, because we don’t leave the things that we love. And when we love this country, what that means is that we propose the solutions to fix it. We love all people in this country, and that’s why we believe healthcare is a human right. We love all children in this country, and because we do, that’s why we fight for education for all children through college. And so we’ll stay focused on our agenda, and we won’t get caught slipping, because all of this is a distraction. It’s a distraction from what’s most important and from our core values as American citizens.

I’m tired of it. I’m darker than both AOC and Tlaib. I don’t use my color as an excuse to silence others and nobody else should, either. This “person of color” bull crap is nothing more than armor for weak people who need protection from their stupid opinions.
