But yesterday she one-upped herself, tweeting that Texas is “effectively an apartheid state, ruled by a far-right white minority government”:
A note that white non-Hispanic Texans are ALREADY the minority there. Texas is effectively an apartheid state, ruled by a far right white minority government. So yeah, this is the plan for us all. https://t.co/CErGnRDjwm https://t.co/2z7Nyxjyzk

Abbott won ~42% of the “Latino” vote and ~15% of the black vote.

And how can it be an apartheid state if Ben & Jerry’s still sells ice cream there?
Ben and Jerry’s is going to stop selling in Texas next? https://t.co/ZcfHqU2co2
