Ocasio-Cortez, 29, berated the New Deal, Franklin Roosevelt's massive public works program worshiped by Democrats, as 'an exercise in racism,' arguing it made life and home loans easier for whites but left African Americans and Latinos behind.She pivoted to her Green New Deal, which she claims would focused on those in need first. 'We fix the pipes in Flint first. We fix the electrical grid in Puerto Rico first. And we fully fund the pensions of coal miners in West Virginia,' she said to applause.She also blamed the current racial tensions on Reagan, whom she claimed "pitted white working-class Americans against brown and black working-class Americans to screw over all working-class Americans is Reaganism in the 80s when he started talking about welfare queens.’She added that Reagan's description painted a resentful vision of black women who were doing nothing that ‘were sucks on our country.'...She defended herself as a self-defined socialist, slamming the 'fear mongering' of socialism, calling it a fear that 'governments going to take over the private sector.'
