BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – “Squad”-member Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., claimed that a person is unable to be “anti-racist” unless they support cancelling student debt.
In a tweet published on Monday, Pressley – one of the members of the “Squad” alongside Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., and Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich. – shared an article by the Washington Post that detailed the stories of people across America with student debts.
Alongside the article, the Massachusetts Democrat claimed that a person cannot stand against racism if they don’t support canceling student debt.
“Black people should not have to pay a dime for education!” she began. “And I’ll explain why. All blacks went to raggedy grammar schools and raggedy high schools. The few of us that ended up pursuing higher education, wound up in raggedy colleges. And if by some luck, we got a scholarship to a prestigious university, we were forced to live in the raggediest dormitories on campus. When my friends and I went out on the town, all of our clothes were raggedy. No guy even flirted with me until I was a senior. When he finally smiled, several of his front teeth were missing and that means, you guessed it, his mouth was raggedy. Everything that I listed is the fault of white supremacy, so cancelling black student debt is a no brainer.”
