Yes! Yes! Yes! White women, we have GOT to do better. It doesn’t matter that you have gifts to buy and halls to deck. It doesn’t matter that you have political fatigue. Black Women have been in this fight for centuries. They will have no pity on us for being exhausted after one year of work.

And it was still a narrow win. Let that sink in. We are that far gone in America that people considered alleged pedophile Roy Moore a viable candidate for Senate.
