It's offensive to say you're 'black' when you are not. People look at you & tell you your color...

Kamala Harris is a terrible, evil person.

Can Kamala Harris Heal A Century Old Conflict Between Black And White Women?These are the words my great-great aunt, the prominent suffrage reporter Miriam Michelson, used to describe Mary-Ellen Pleasant, a black successful real estate magnate, entrepreneur and abolitionist in 1897 in the San Francisco Call. She can sure get it poppin. African American women have her back for sure 💯 Fascinating read Interesting article...yet I wonder why the African-American vote is highlighted as one of the reasons that Hilary Clinton lost when more WHITE WOMEN voted for Trump?
