New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to defend herself against claims promoted by Donald Trump, Jr. and others that she changes her accent to pander to minority audiences.
In a string of Saturday evening tweets, the first-term Democrat wrote that her habit of "code-switching" was informed by years of navigating professional and social environments as a woman of color.
"Next time youre told straight hair is 'unprofessional' and that speaking like your parents do is 'uneducated,' then you can complain about code-switching," she wrote, referring to the practice of changing speech patterns based on environment. "Code-switching is a tool communities learn when theyre told their voice, appearance and mannerisms are unprofessional.
Her Saturday remarks came after commentators accused her of adopting a southern-like drawl while speaking at Rev. Al Sharptons National Action Network convention in New York on Friday.

Hillary is the wrong color. Darn the luck.
Full title - REP. ALEXANDRIA OCASIO-CORTEZ GIVES TWITTER A LESSON ON 'CODE SWITCHING' AFTER DONALD TRUMP JR., CONSERVATIVES CRITICIZE HER ACCENT
She rrally is a nasty cynical person. She knows exactly what she us being mocked for. It has nothing to do with her hispanic background. She was trying to sound black.
If a conservative does it it’s racism and cultural appropriation. When a leftist does it it’s code switching. Got it.
Communists always think they have to pander to regular people (”code switching”).
That’s why they used folk music back in the 50’s and early 60’s, hence the folk music craze.
But it turned out Rock music was way better at making socialists and communists.
She’s like a rubber band. Stretch is far enough and it will snap. She’ll be snapping soon.
She’s an idiot in any accent.
They criticized her FAKE black accent.
If a conservative does it its racism and cultural appropriation. When a leftist does it its code switching. Got it.
The ability of the progressives to twist reality to suit their agenda tells me all i need to know anymore. And their robot followers parrot the talking point without hesitation or question.
It’s not code switching. It’s called demonic possession!!!
Like...Code Switching, is like...goovey man.
She ain’t noways tarred......................
She is victim pandering.
Next, she can link “code switching” to “intersectionality.”
Well, that explain’s the occasional cortex being drunk, eating popcorn, and giving an interview last week.
Oh, now I understand.
She was simply “AA dropout pandering”, knowing she had to get her IQ up to .08%, or she wouldn’t be a group or race capable following her logical drain bammage.
So is her valley-girl/airhead speech pattern an act is it or her authentic vapidness?
Sandy, Im a New Yorker like you, and thats not a Bronx accent. its Southern.
Actually, the way you normally talk isnt Bronx either, Sandy. Its Westchester County, where youre really from. (Yorktown Heights in your case Yorktown High School.)
Im a Westchester boy myself I can tell the difference, Sandy. Youre about as Bronx as I am.
...and take the blame for Spanish Conquistadorism
