What a joke!
During a recent interview with MSNBC, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) was overjoyed with Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick and officially announced that Black women “have arrived.”
According to Breitbart, Waters stated, “I am overjoyed. I feel that this historic moment is one that I will savor for many, many years to come. To tell you the truth, I witnessed the first woman who was selected to be vice president Geraldine Ferraro when I was in the women’s movement. At that time, we couldn’t even envision an African-American woman being chosen to be the vice president. And here we are today with this historic moment where Kamala Harris has been chosen. I am over, overjoyed by this decision.”
She then said, “I think it’s a great decision. I think she’ll be so good running with Biden. I think that they will make a good team. But what’s important about this moment in history is this. ”
Later on in the interview Waters stated, “I think one of the things we must realize is that Black women have arrived. Black women are now extraordinarily influential in the block party. Black women have demonstrated they are loyal to the Democratic Party, and they have shown that not only will they vote, but they will get out the vote. They will fight for the vote. And so having done that, with this influence that we have, we have come a long way, and we are recognized as important and essential to progressive politics in general, to the politics that will be about, you know, creating equality and justice for our families and for our children and bringing people together and arriving to the point where we are all feeling very strongly about fighting against racism and inequality. So this is the moment of change in America.”
