Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota is courting controversy again, stating at an event earlier this week that America must move far beyond simply addressing “racism in policing.” It is time, Omar asserted, to begin “dismantling” the American economy itself.
“As long as our economy and political systems prioritize profit without considering who is profiting, who is being shut out, we will perpetuate this inequality,” Omar stated. “We cannot stop at the criminal justice system. We must begin the work of dismantling the whole system of oppression wherever we find it.”
