Just because minorities want to support a candidate that is like them doesn't mean they are racist considering that minority representation in government is low. Besides that probably isn't even the entire story. Ocasio-Cortez made it a point to reach out to minority voters and even sent out literature in Albanian. That sort of outreach is what can catch an incumbent off guard, especially a heavily entrenched one.

And as the map posted above shows the race really was not decided on race so it's more than a little off base to shout racism. Crowley didn't lose because the district is racist.

Crowley seems like a classy guy.

Trump also received votes from some minority voters, but it would be foolish to deny that his campaign both utilized and benefited from racist dog whistles. It doesn't tell the whole story, but it happened nonetheless.

The same is true here. The only difference is that racism against white people is socially acceptable on the left.

The bottom line is that Crowley did not because the district hated him for being white, he lost because he was pretty much disconnected from the district. If you want a counterexample look at TN-9. Cohen has been challenged several cycles in a row by black candidates but has always defeated them. But if you choose to believe that Crowley was victim of racial hatred, you are entitled to that opinion.

Ocasio-Cortez seems to have won whites here.

It's essentially an objective fact that during the campaign, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made remarks
with a racial content (regarding Crowley's racial identity, that is)
which would've resulted in any White person being likened to David Duke.
But she said them about White people, so it's cool.

Essentially objective?

And cry me a river white folk. You lose a little relative power and suddenly racism is a problem that you all notice. Give me a break.

I was quite convinced I'd read racist remarks by Ms. Ocasio-Cortez, but upon tracking down the article in question, it turns out it was just Congressman Crowley complaining about her trying to make race into an issue. Which is hardly definitive. I still suspect it's true, admittedly, but I was mistaken in my contention it was objectively factual.

To be honest, I have no doubt that in casual conversations at doors Ocasio-Cortez and her volunteers may have said things like, "let's be represented by one of our own," or the like. But I don't think that's a big issue unless someone can explicitly prove the campaign did something along the lines of saying, "throw out the white trash." It ain't great, but it's hardly the minority version of the KKK intimidating white voters or anything that happens now in, say, South Carolina.
