NEW YORK CITY—Winter Storm Kenan pummeled New York on Friday and Saturday, dumping over a foot of snow in some parts of the city. US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said there was “No question white supremacy caused devastating winter storm.”
“You can give it an ethnic name all you want, but this storm is clearly racist,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Most significant snowfall had left the tri-state area by 7 p.m. Saturday night as the storm moved north and battered parts of eastern New England.
AOC also boldly claimed that snow is racist.
“They need to make black snow because white snow is racist. If it weren’t racist, it would have more color,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
Most snowfall in the Big Apple was in the 7-10 inch range, such as in Central Park which saw 8.3 inches, according to Accuweather meteorologist Alan Reppert. Some neighborhoods in Queens, however, saw over 12 inches, he said.
Bayside had some of the most significant accumulation, with 13.1 inches recorded as of 7 p.m. Saturday night. Middle Village got hit with 12.7 inches and JFK Airport saw a measured total of 12.6 inches, according to Accuweather totals.
“White supremacists have stooped to a new low. They couldn’t win politically, so they are getting back at us by dumping their whiteness all over us through the weather,” AOC added.
