WATCH: Pressley mocked after blaming “food apartheid systems” for Covid’s impact on black Americans

While appearing on MSNBC, “squad” member Rep. Ayanna Pressley cited “structural racism,” “unequal access to health care” and “food apartheid systems” for Covid disproportionally impacting the black community.


Not everyone was impressed by Pressley’s explanation.

Dave Rubin wrote ‘Food apartheid systems.” These people are absolute embarrassments and should have no power over you.’

Presley fired back “I said exactly what it is. “Food apartheid looks at the whole food system & takes into account income, race & geo. It recognizes social & racial inequalities & that the *systems* in place are what makes it difficult for people in low income areas to access fresh, healthy food.””
