AOC says that growing cauliflower & # 39; colonial & # 39; is when she deals with the racial departments of community gardens and the environmental movement
- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went live to Instagram to discuss her Green New Deal
- The 29-year-old alleged people of color should be able to grow familiar food
- She said they were alienated from not being able to grow their native vegetables
- AOC said: & # 39; You take a colonial approach to environmental awareness & # 39;
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed that growing cauliflower in community gardens & # 39; takes a colonial approach to environmental awareness & # 39 ;.
The firebrand New York democrat took the time on Instagram to discuss how such gardens are a & # 39; core component & # 39; were from her proposed Green New Deal on Tuesday.
In the live broadcast, she discussed how important it was for people of color to think they were able to grow food that they were familiar with in these green spaces.
The 29-year-old said: & # 39; What I also like is growing plants that are culturally familiar to the community. It is so important. & # 39;
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, 29, walked around her native New York while discussing how community gardens were central to her Green New Deal
She added: & # 39; A key element of the Green New Deal is that all of these projects make sense in a cultural context, and it is an area we come back to most because people say: & # 39; Why do you have to do that? too hard."
& # 39; But if you really think about it, if someone says it's & # 39; is too difficult to create a green space in which Yucca grows instead of, I don't know, cauliflower or something – what you do is that you take a colonial approach to environmental awareness.
& # 39; And that is why many color communities become resistant to certain environmental movements because they come with the colonial lens on it. & # 39;
The Bronx native has become a central and bold voice in the cause of climate change, not afraid to suggest that presidential favorite Joe Biden has chosen a & # 39; middle of the road & # 39; approach to the problem.
AOC claimed that by telling different communities that it was & # 39; too loud & # 39; was to create a space where they could grow their native vegetables, when someone said this, they & # 39; took a colonial approach to environmental awareness & # 39;
Although she never called him by name, Ocasio-Cortez has retweeted a linked to a Reuters article that Biden reports & is developing a climate change policy that he hopes will appeal to both environmentalists and voters have chosen [Trump]. & # 39;
She slammed the idea with her own added comment: & # 39; This is a dealbreaker. There is no & # 39; middle way & # 39; with climate denial & delay.
& # 39; Blaming & # 39; blue collar "Americans as the main opponents of bold climate policy is gas lobby 101. We are not going to solve the climate crisis with this lack of leadership. The lives of our children are at stake. & # 39;
AOC was in a community garden to show its followers the work that people were doing and praised a composting area
In March, Democratic Senators failed to vote in the voting phase through its Green New Deal and claimed that it was put forward by the Republican Senate Majority Leader for political purposes.
Last week Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that the GOP has absolutely nothing to do with babies & # 39; s – especially brown, black or poor, claiming that if they did they would support her Green New Deal, & # 39; or AT LEAST have a real climate. & # 39;
