In a recent speech delivered to a predominately African-American audience, Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had a change in usual tone of voice. Many took to social media to accuse the freshman congresswoman of pandering to the audience by changing her accent.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is speaking in front of a predominately Black audience, and she is using this weird “Ebonics” accent in her voice.
She damn near sounds like Diamond & Silk#lol
I’m surprised she didn’t end her speech with “can you jive turkeys dig it”.
