Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez calls the Electoral College a racist ‘scam’ – Business Insider

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called the Electoral College “a scam” that undercounts voters of color in a series of Instagram Stories on Monday.
“Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as opposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all our voters are counted equally,” she wrote.
She pointed to data, cited in a New York magazine story, that African-American, Hispanic, and Asian-American voters are underrepresented by the Electoral College compared with white Americans.
