None of these women said they hate white people or said they have no interest in teaming up or working with whites to achieve things, it is all is you all's head. Stop reaching for things that do not exist. By the way, the ACTUAL words of a squad member:

" ‘Anyone who is interested in building a more equitable and just world is a part of the Squad,’ Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley said."

None of you can find anything where they say they are against whites or white women!!
This is why most minorities align with Democrats if they actually do vote. African-American voting records aren't that good for the most part. I just hope with all the race-baiting Trump has done, it actually changes that, with or without an African-American candidate on the ticket.

The other problem I notice is that conservative African-Americans are often used as more important than they really are. Dr. Ben Carsen and Candice Owens, really are not important other than being used for their race.

^^^^This

It seems to be trendy these days to try to find a way to call yourself "a person of color". You are spot on when you say AOC and Tlaib are white. Arabs are caucasians. PRs range from blonde-haired and blue-eyed to dark skinned black.

I'm half PR and have the same mix as AOC---white, black, native Indian. I never have---and never will refer to myself as "a person of color".

The squad, apparently, does have a white member---an 82 year old congressman from NJ:

https://nypost.com/2019/07/17/82-yea...in-aocs-squad/

From the article:

An 82-year-old congressman from New Jersey asked Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez if he could join her “Squad” after an Onion article jokingly made the suggestion.

Rep. Bill Pascrell tweeted at the freshman fellow Democrat on Tuesday while referencing the article from the satirical news website.

“Well. How bout it,” Pascrell wrote.
--------------------------------------------------------

Geez! These people are treating congress like it's high school. They want to be part of the cool kids and are begging to join them.

He really isn't unless he takes the pledge of the Justice Democrats like the other 4 did.

He has to pledge to fight for the following:


https://www.justicedemocrats.com/issues/
GREEN NEW DEAL
SECURE A LIVING WAGE AND TIE IT TO INFLATION
ENACT A FEDERAL JOBS GUARANTEE
REBUILD OUR CRUMBLING INFRASTRUCTURE
BLOCK BAD TRADE DEALS
END TAX DODGING AND LOOPHOLES
END UNNECESSARY WARS AND NATION BUILDING

This inquiry is similar to, "When did you stop beating your wife?"

The Nixon Administration categorized Hispanics as a minority. So basically, Hispanics can align with Latino (Latin American countries) and all be minority.

Having said all that, they're deserving of minority protections though, per our constitution, due to systemic racism.

This makes those with white privilege mad because there's no excuse for their plight. It gets worse for them - they get exposed as lazy and uneducated/uninformed.
