Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview Tuesday that marginalized communities in the U.S. and across the globe “have no choice but to riot” under certain conditions.

“And it doesn’t even have to be that way,” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez [2] was discussing Israel and Palestine when she made the remarks, but included poor communities in the U.S. and across the world.
