Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez seemed to use a forced accent … a different voice … during a speech to the National Action Network convention Friday.
“This is what organizing looks like,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “This is what building power looks like. This is what changing the country looks like. It’s when we choose to show up and occupy the room and talk about the things that matter most, talking about our future.”
Then, the New York lawmaker really laid it on:
“I’m proud to be a bartender,” she said. “Ain’t nothing wrong with that. There’s nothing wrong with working retail, folding clothes for other people to buy. There is nothing wrong with preparing the food that your neighbors will eat. There is nothing wrong with driving the buses that take your family to work.”
So notorious is Clinton for switching her accent to match that of her audience that Bloomberg Politics even put together a video of examples. Perhaps the most infamous of all was a 2007 speech at a black church in Selma, Alabama, when she said, “I don’t feel no ways tired.”

Any kid who grew up in a distinct linguistic culture & had to learn to navigate class enviros at school/work knows what’s up.
My Spanish is the same way.
